This week I’m excited to welcome Dr. Gurpreet Padda. Dr. Padda is a board-certified MD and the Medical Director of Reversing Diabetes MD. This online space features protocols designed to reverse disease in patients who are overweight or already have established prediabetes or diabetes. In this episode we talk about the secret to becoming a type 2 diabetic. We discuss common industry myths and how the Reverse Diabetes MD protocol can help address this global epidemic. Over to Dr. Padda.
Hey guys, this is Stu from 180 Nutrition and I am delighted to welcome Dr. Gurpreet Padda to the podcast. Dr Padda, how are you?
01:51 Good stuff. Well, look-
01:52 I appreciate being here.
01:52 Oh well look, we appreciate you sharing some of your time, especially on a late Sunday afternoon as well, so thank you for that. But first up, for all of our listeners that may not be familiar with you or your work, I would just love it if you could tell us a little bit about yourself before we get into the questions.
02:10 Yeah, so I’m a clinician. I actually practice medicine every single day. I see patients every single day. I started off as a physician, treating patients with extremely complex medical problems. I do interventional pain, so I see patients that have just horrendous symptoms and in my career, as I started to treat them, I realized that they had a commonality. You know, everybody talks about patients having fibromyalgia, people talk about patients having all of these symptoms, and I kept coming back to, well, what’s the common root cause for all of this? Is there something that I can treat? And it seemed to be progressing. It seemed to be getting worse. I’m 55 years, I started my career 30 plus years ago, and I’ve seen a dramatic shift in the patient population. This is not the same population that I started with when I first started. Patients were never this heavy, patients weren’t this diabetic. And now, three quarters, more than three quarters of my patients, are diabetic.
And so I’m trying to figure out, why is it that we’ve had this epidemic of diabetes? And what is it that we can do about it? And it brought me through a whole bunch of rabbit holes. I dug deep to figure this out. And it turns out it’s been in front of us the whole time. It’s the food that we’re eating. We don’t have an epidemic of diabetes. We have a pandemic of diabetes. If animals eat the same food that we eat, which is the standard American diet, they get the same disease. And at this point, we have rats in New York that are gigantic, that are diabetic, and they’re cognitively impaired, like Alzheimer’s, and they’re venturing out in the daytime because they have all this growth hormone, which is insulin pumping through their bodies, they’re gigantic, and their brains are defective and they’re out in the daytime and they’re dying. And so if you look at tourist places where you used to have thin dogs, and now thee tourist places have extremely fat dogs. You look at the monkeys at locations, the monkeys are getting huge.
And it’s not that we didn’t feed them before, we’re feeding them something different now. And those are the kinds of the conclusions that have come about. So we know how to make somebody diabetic now, I can guarantee I can make somebody diabetic in about two weeks.
