  1. What else can ginger do? See more videos at https://nutritionfacts.org/topics/ginger. And for an overview of diabetes: https://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-not-to-die-from-diabetes. -NF Team

  2. If drop in insulin levels is not equal to the insulin sensitivity produced as a direct result of the ginger consumption, then where is that extra fasting glucose levels coming from? My 2¢ would probably paint the adrenals as a culprit. Hence increasing insulin sensitivity without a synergistic increase in glucose disposal (SGLT2 drugs) as well as caloric intake will produce adrenal fatigue as the adrenals kick in to maintain (relative) euglycemia.

    If my hypothesis is true, it'd be best to avoid ginger & let insulin do it's job otherwise risk adrenal exhaustion & the drastic immunosuppressive effects that come with it.

    Obviously, further research is required as something, or rather, a combination of cofactors are keeping the sugars high for whatever reasons. Wonder what role glucagon plays into all of this.

  3. Yeah, yeah, just an other Excellent report by the NutritionFacts.org group headed by Dr. Greger!! Beautiful & Magnificat!! 🙂 🙂

  4. Better yet go WFPB and your diabetes disappears . It's magic ! People with bad habits will now make ginger beef and chicken and think they are on the road to recovery. Although I doubt meat eaters are the demographic here. They're on carnivore channels figuring out what else they can wrap bacon around.

  5. A more significant effect. https://youtu.be/_MxyG3wS1-k  
    Peter middle aged male, 215 pounds, Diabetic taking 4 metfomin and 4 dimachron per day. Meds weren't working, 12% blood sugar Doctor told him there was nothing more he could do. Sent him to a diabetes specialist, told Peter he was leaking 12 grams of protein from his kidneys every day and that he was sending him to a kidney specialist.

    He decided to try something "Alternative" started using cannabis oil, in 6 weeks time his Fas test went to 4.5. Had to stop taking his meds mid November because his sugar had gone below 4%. Dropped over 50 pounds in a years time. Three minute video.

  6. This is great info and I use ginger daily. However, I found something that works much better for diabetes. Here is a link, hope it helps. https://youtu.be/t3HRJ8f9pTg

  7. Makes me feel good about the home brewed ginger tea I had last night.  I have been using a lot of ginger.  For some reason I didn't like the spice aisle ginger, but I genuinely love fresh ginger.

  8. Beaker no have diabetes but very much would like to take metformin (+nmn). Ginger and cinnamon r nice but not enough to live 4ever

  9. I’m sure I’m not the only one who struggles to eat ALL the healthy foods out there. I just don’t eat enough food, in total, to make it possible to incorporate them all, every day. Each day, I try to eat beans, nuts, seeds, greens, berries, mushrooms, matcha, garlic, turmeric, ginger…(trailing off). It’s just too much. I always feel like I’m failing.

  10. How do I prevent blood sugar from becoming TOO low taking ginger (and/or other natural things that lower blood sugar) and metformin medication for t2 diabetes? If the answer is to stop taking the medication, I'm afraid my doctor won't help me to do that in the slightest, and then I'd worry about my sugar getting too high… I guess all I can do is monitor It and try to wing it and do what seems best?

  11. I recently found this method: => thebigdiabetes-lie. com <= (Google it)

    I followed the treatment for 4 weeks and my blood sugar level dropped to normal levels.

  12. Careful with this narrator's analysis of the reports. These articles look scientific, and they may very well be, but articles published in Iranian and Persian biochemistry journals are not well read in the West. Now, these studies may have been done well, but if they are as important as the narrator claims, then I ask why were not the reports published in more high-impact journals? Furthermore, are these journals even peer-reviewed? I don't know, because I have never read anything from the journals the narrator has selected. Still, just because I have not read anything from them, does not mean that the reports the narrator quotes are not valid. However, I can point out some flaws in Dr Greger's analysis and reading of the results presented in these reports. First, what biological significance is there to 110 mg/dL blood glucose versus 104 mg/dL blood glucose without or with a cup of ginger tea with white bread? I believe any diabetic could easily handle a blood glucose concentration of 110 mg/dL. That's practically a normal fasting value. So, the doctor's conclusion there that a cup of ginger tea with white bread is better than a cup of water with white bread does not compute. Second, the doctor mentions LDL-cholesterol was improved when ginger was ingested, but LDL-cholesterol is not anymore associated with pathological cardiovascular events. It is inflammation that is a strong risk factor for cardiovascular disease, not cholesterol. Third, Dr Greger states the authors claim CRP levels drop by half after consuming ginger for 12 weeks. But, look at the errors associated with the measures. Those means are not significantly different from each other with errors like these. In fact, look at the "Before" group: 5.2 ± 5.4!! That's a lot of variation. And fourth, fasting blood glucose concentration and A1C get worse in the control group as the study progresses. Something is strange about the study design. There should not be this drift in both variables. Be careful of persons who sound right, but who are not making proper conclusions from the data. Also, it must first be established that the experiments and results are credible. —R Bennett PhD.

  13. I may not be doing the daily dozen—but I'm a vegan—but thanks to you, Dr. Greger, I drink vinegar every day, I eat 1/2 or a whole cup of beans a day, and now I'm doing the ginger tea regimen.

  14. I started drinking the powdered ginger in hot water daily. It's quite strong so I do one half teaspoon in hot water twice a day.
