Type 1 Diabetes Can Be Caused by Heavy Metal Contamination

Heavy Metal Contamination can Cause Type 1 Diabetes

Diabetes incidence is increasing drastically. Diabetes I can be caused by an incorrect autoimmune response, generated by the presence of the heavy metals in the tissues. In Germany you can find effective treatment, delivered by a highly motivated team, in a pleasant atmosphere.

Uncontrolled industrialization has released heavy metal pollution in the world, which can have many adverse health effects, such as damaging organ functions. Several studies have indicated that the deficiency and efficiency of some metals may play a role in the development of diabetes.

There are two basic types of diabetes, type 1 (autoimmune) diabetes and type 2 (insulin resistance) diabetes. In type 1 the body’s immune system attacks its own insulin producing tissue, while type 2 involves metabolic failure related to poor diet, obesity, environmental factors, and genetic susceptibility. Those who have either type 1 or type 2 diabetes have been found to be more likely to suffer from other chronic conditions including heart disease, strokes, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s, eye conditions and blindness.


Possible causes of type 1 diabetes

The most common theory as to why type 1 diabetes forms is the destruction of the beta cells. There are several potential causes.

  • Vaccinations

Impurities in a vaccine are injected directly into the body, bypassing the digestive system’s ability to deal with them. If these unnatural proteins are similar to normal cells in the body, the immune system, in attacking the unnatural molecules, may be fooled and start attacking the natural cells, which may also lead to the immune system attacking the beta cells.

  • Live viruses

There have been many cases of type 1 diabetes that happened at about the same time the patient had a viral illness. It is known that some cases of type 1 diabetes are caused by a virus. The best theory is that a virus, for unknown reasons, targets the beta cells.

  • Scar tissue, mucus covering the beta cells

In cases where scar tissue or a thick mucus is the cause of type 1 diabetes, the beta cells are in the pancreas. Because they are covered with scar tissue or a thick mucus, the insulin made by the beta cells never reaches the blood stream.

  • Food allergies

While dairy proteins may be the main cause of food allergies, they are not the only cause. Basically, the body’s attempt to deal with whatever food allergy, may accidentally destroy the beta cells in the pancreas. An interesting fact about food allergies is that a person craves the foods they are allergic to!

  • Microbes

While a virus is a major cause of type 1 diabetes, there are several other microbes that may cause it. Microbes are capable of getting inside of cells, and in the case of beta cells it is possible their presence stops the production of insulin.

  • Inflammation

The presence of microbes or heavy metals in the pancreas may create inflammations that inhibit the ability of the beta cells to create or release insulin.

  • Heavy metals

Another theory is that heavy metals, such as in a vaccine or dental filling, either directly inhibit the ability of the pancreas to produce insulin due to the toxicity of the heavy metal (in this case the beta cells are not destroyed, they are just unable to produce insulin) or there is some type of allergic reaction to the heavy metal.


Diabetes 1 and heavy metals contamination

Though our bodies require some metals in varying amounts, overexposure can cause illness and even death. What constitutes overexposure depends on the type of heavy metal. Heavy metals are elements with a high atomic weight and a density at least 5 times greater than that of water. Present in toxic waste, they enter the body through the food chain and accumulate in both hard and soft tissues. Other heavy metals, such as nickel, can cause toxicity, but people are less likely to encounter them at toxic levels.

  • A number of studies have examined the effects of mercury on beta cells in laboratory experiments. One found that inorganic mercury can cause beta cell death, and decrease insulin secretion from beta cells, in laboratory experiments.
  • Cellular studies show that cadmium can accumulate in pancreatic beta cells and it inhibits the insulin secretion, impairing beta cell function.
  • Early-life exposure to lead is associated with lower body weight in human infants and later life obesity in rodents. When pancreatic beta cells were exposed to lead, it disturbed the insulin secretion. Exposed rodents developed glucose intolerance via insulin resistance.
  • Besides causing nervous system disorders, peripheral vascular disease, endocrine disruption and cancer, arsenic has also been found to alter certain biological processes that regulate insulin resistance.
  • Nickel is another heavy metal that accumulates in tissues, particularly when beneficial trace minerals like zinc are lacking. In other words, an excess of harmful metals combined with a lack of beneficial ones is a recipe for chronic disease, and an almost surefire path to developing diabetes.

Symptoms of chronic and acute heavy metal poisoning

Symptoms of chronic and acute heavy metal poisoning

Acute heavy metal poisoning occurs when a person is exposed directly to toxic levels. Signs and symptoms occur within two weeks after exposure and become severe. Chronic poisoning occurs when a person is exposed to non-toxic levels over a period of time, possibly even years, until they reach toxicity levels in the body. Here are some of the signs and symptoms of acute and chronic heavy metal poisoning, which may develop over years.

  • Fatigue
  • Hallucinations
  • Headache
  • Loss of appetite
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Nausea
  • Numbness
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Sleeplessness
  • Vertigo
  • Visual disturbances
  • Anxiety
  • Dyslexia
  • Lack of concentration
  • Loss of taste and smell
  • Migraines
  • Paresthesia
  • Hair loss


Diabetes 1 treatment at German International Clinic in Frankfurt

The prevention and treatment of diabetes requires a multidisciplinary approach. Major lifestyle changes are necessary to deal with this chronic disease, meaning providers need to interact with patients in multiple settings.

Diabetes limits how well people can function physically. Serious complications include renal damage and even organ failure, heart attacks, strokes, loss of sight and diabetic foot syndrome, which leads to amputation. Four million people die of diabetes-related causes each year.

German International Clinicin Frankfurt is one of the leading centres in Europe for the treatment and research of diabetes and its related diseases. Since the incorrect autoimmune response can be caused by contamination with heavy-metals (can happen during infancy with breast-milk, if the mother is contaminated), the clinic’s medical team is able to check this and use their "ultimate blood-cleansing" to remove the heavy-metals from the blood stream. This procedure costs around 3.910 EUR ($4,316).

For your information, before treating diabetes I with stem-cells, it is always necessary to check the remaining functioning of the pancreas, because when there is nothing left to be built-up, even stem-cells won't work! To check this, ask for analysis of C-Peptide and Pro-Insulin as indicators as well as the untrasound/CT.

Dr. Siebenhuener, Director of the German International Clinic, warmly welcomes patients to his private practice at the clinic and hopes that the experienced and friendly team will help patients regian their health. The clinic offers a comfortable atmosphere and a finely tuned color scheme which helpes people recover.
