This is not medical advice, I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.
Excess Oxidative stress leads to chronic illness there is a test to see if you have excess oxidative stress. If you do not get it resolved you cannot heal. There is a test that can check for excess oxidative stress. Excess inflammation and toxins can also cause chronic illness. Identifying the root cause and correcting it is very important. Microbial imbalance in the gut have been linked to diabetes, Alzheimer’s and many other forms of chronic illness.
There are other test that can help identify which areas of the anti-oxidant system are working and which may not be working. This can help identify the sources of high ROS levels or other toxins produced in the body from oxidative stress.
One thing we must get rid of is believing that our genes are written.
Dynamics of B-cell insulin secretion.
How B Cells are destroyed.
Leptin can help with diabetes. I do not like Yales research it is usually conditionally bias and even flawed but I have seen research to back this one.
Increasing Leptin sensitivity can reduce body weight.
Role of Pancreas
Type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance.
In type 1 diabetes the body does not produce enough insulin.
Thyroid issues and Addison’s disease is common in type 1 diabetes which are symptoms of sepsis or endotoxemia.

Leaky gut cause form toxins or even stress and inflammation can lead to diabetes and even mental illness.
This is why prebiotics have been found to aid with diabetes.
Many toxins and drugs can destroy our commensal virome part of our microbiome. Our bodies need these viruses and so do our gut bacteria to keep us healthy.
Probiotics may be needed in diabetics.
Babies born to mothers through C-section and who have taken antibiotics are prone to developing diabetes.
They are finding that exercise and diet have little to do with determining if someone will develop diabetes. Processed food will make us prone to diabetes.
Having an imbalance in gut bacteria causes metabolic issues which can lead to diabetes.

Also babies born by C-section are more prone to diabetes. They found seeding the babies with the mothers microbiota from her vagina can help prevent this.
BH4 issues can cause diabetes it regulates glucose homeostasis. I have posted on BH4 and resolving BH4 issues, often times there are other issues that need addressed if there are BH4 issues.
Supplementing with BH4 has been shown to improve diabetes.
Green tea has been found to restore BH4 levels. Drinking green tea should be done in moderation. Drinking it everyday has been found to cause high histamine levels.
Regulating BH4 levels is very improtant.
This study discusses the many issues diabetics were found to have.
Issues with the Folate pathway can cause Type 1 diabetes. I wouldn’t doubt if folic acid could contribute to this. It is man made and the body does not produce enough of the enzyme needed to break it down. Many have high levels of folic acid which can effect the brain, increase our risk of cancer and have many other negative health effects on our body. Sadly the scientific and medical community use folate and folic acid interchangeably. Science has gotten very sloppy now days. Folate is the natural form.
Some with MTHFR issues my benefit from increasing folate intake. Read my comment on this post about folic acid because they use it interchangeably and folic acid is bad.
Many do not know the difference between Folate and Folic acid. Folic Acid should be avoided.

Stevia extract also helps protect the kidneys. Stevia the sweetener is different , it must be the extract.
Corns silk is another one that is good for all around healing.
Now if you look at this study they are looking at the symptoms as usual and not the cause when it is clear the cause is inflammation and oxidative stress. So they need to find the cause and address it. Also fatty acid issues can be connected to leaky gut, gut dysbiosis and pyrrole issues which is a symptom of porphyria.
Hibiscus taiwanensi is in the mallow family. I wouldn’t doubt if others of this family have this quality. It helps with type 2 diabetes. Because most in the mallow family have the same benefits.
Bitter melon increases the volume of islet cells in the pancreas but can have side effects.
Bitter melon should be used with caution it can aggevate fatty liver disease.

Flax seed helps with diabetes. It must be crushed the body cannot digest whole flax seed.
Phytic acid helps with insulin resistance.
Those with diabetes have been found to have excess oxidative stress this is why Nrf2 activators can helps some with diabetes.
Nrf2 activators also help prevent damage to the renal system.
Rehmannia is an Nrf2 activator.
Cinnamon is an Nrfw activator.
Feverfew helps with diabetes by reducing inflammation. Taking feverfew for too long can result in severe withdrawal when you quit taking it. I would only take it with colds or when symptoms are very bad.
Mtor signaling is involved in protein homeostasis and is connected to diabetes.
fasting helps restore B-cell and can help with type 1 diabetes. Those with type 1 diabetes can develop ketoacidosis when fasting so should be cautious about this one. If you were to try it I would make sure you had plenty of electrolytes and used glycoproteins or something. I would not do a complete fast. Ketoacidosis is life threatoning. This is a fasting mimicking diet. Fasting should be done intermittently.
Leaky gut can cause excess mtor activation which causes diabetes. I have posted on healing the gut.

It used to be believed that the pancrease cannot regenerate but they have found that it can regenerate.
Even those who have had diabetes for many years still have B-cell function
Fasting is one way to stimulate pancreatic regeneration.
We must make sure we address autoimmune issue to get pancreatic cells to regenerate. I have posted on that also.
Tumeric can help regenerate B-cells. Must be careful using it though it chelates iron and can cause anemia.
Yarrow helps with a lot of things.
Kudzu root is another thing that helps with a lot of things.

This list of plants has sage which is another super herb for healing.
Muscadine grapes help with diabetes.
Canola oil causes diabetes but Omega 3 oils reduce it.
Metabolic, inflammation and infection can cause thrombosis and fibrosis. These are found to be common in diabetes so if someone has diabetes they need to address the cause of the oxidative stress , inflammation or metabolic issues or whatever else is causing the health problems. Diabetes is a symptom not a cause. Allopathic medicine only looks at and treats symptoms they do not address the cause. There is no money in curing. A healthy patient is a lost customer. These are a sign of endothelial dysfunction.
Folate helps with endothelial dysfuncton. They say folic acid, for some reason many medical professionals use the term folate interchangebly with folic acid which most know by now is toxic to the body. I do not know if they are doing it to promote it for better sales or if they are in error or are just doing sloppy science but folic acid can be toxic to the body. Folate is the safe one it is natural.
Activating Sirt1 helps with diabetes.
There are natural Sirt1 activators like resveratrol found in grape seed extract.
Alpha Lipoic acid is a sirt activator.
We should avoid GMOs they have been found to alter the pancrease.
Autoimmune dysfunction has been mistaken for pancreatic cancer.
Emoden is found in buckthorn and Japanese Knotweed. It can stimulate B-cell regenerations.
Herbs that reduce glucose levels stimulate B-Cell growth
Rooibos protects pancreatic cells from cell death. Aspalathus linearis
Symptoms of pancreatitis.
Drinking soda has a dramatic negative impact on the pancreas and can lead to pancreatic cancer. There are many habits we have that negatively impact the pancreas.
It is very important to protect the pancreas because it produces many of the enzymes we need for digestion.
If we do not address the thing that cause metabolic issues. We could develop many health issues because of the impact on the pancreas. This could eventually lead to gall stones.
It is very important to address acidosis , it destroys the pancreas. I have posted on acidosis.
Type 3c diabetes is often misdiagnosed and over looked because it is caused by issues in the brain.
There are biomarkers to distinguish between the two.

A cells can become B cells.
Phyto therapy for B cells
A1C is not a reliable test
If the diabetes is not addressed it can lead to cancer.
Mast cells activation syndrome has been connected to many chronic diseases including diabetes. I have covered this in my post on autoimmune and how to address it but I may if time permits do a post specifically on mast cells.
Some naturals that may help.
Eggs should be included in a diet for better health.
Chlorine is toxic to the body. Fluoride is a biproduct along with bichlroides and trichlorides which are also very toxic. Drinking water with fluoride in it increases the risk of getting diabetes.
They are getting close to developing new non invasive diagnostic tools for diabetes.
Fiber increases the good gut bacteria which reduces diabetes.
Nicotinomide riboside helps with mitochondrial issues in diabetes.
To get the gut bacteria to remain and thrive we need Akkermansia Munciniphila.
These studies frustrate me. Instead of looking at what is causing the bile issues they are looking at the symptoms and how to resolve them. The symptoms are not the cause. They need to be checking for leaky gut, gut dysbiois, infections , metabolic issues or nutrient deficiencies. Or causes of inflammation they can all effect bile production and reabosorption. Science does not seem to be real anymore they all seem to have tunnel vision shaped by corporate science.
Bile acids are responsible for many things in the body and if it becomes inhibited even our ability to detox will be inhibited and oxidative stress will increase and will will start developing issues with fat digestion.
Posting these links to demonstrate something. Inflammation, oxidative stress and many other things cause Fe3 to build up in the body to cause iron toxicity. The body cannot use Fe 3. Lactoferrin and curcumin reduce Fe3 . This would increase Gs/1 which should let B cell grow. Because Fe3 cannot be used by the body it would work as if a person was deficient in iron. They chelate iron from the body to fight cancer because it reduces Gs/1. So by reducing Fe3 in the body it would let our bodies restore iron levels back to normal which should promote B cell growth. I could find little research to verify what I believe but I am convinced it would help.
TMAO increases the risk of diabetes and heart disease, high meat consumption and certain gut bacteria produce TMAO. Grape seed extract, wine and olive oil prevent the gut bacteria from producing TMAO.
