In this video, we’re going to cover a hidden cause of diabetes that many people aren’t aware of. It might surprise you—it’s iron. I’m going to share with you the truth about iron as well as what you need to know about iron and diabetes.

You might think iron is very beneficial to the body. But, the problem is it’s very difficult to eliminate so many people have too much iron. Iron is also very oxidizing, which causes a lot of inflammation. Then, with inflammation comes a big spike in insulin resistance.

Hemochromatosis – a genetic condition which is an iron overload disease—the body can’t eliminate iron.

A few side effects of hemochromatosis:

• Diabetes
• A fatty liver
• Cirrhosis

The more iron you have, the more destruction. You’ll also have a big problem with insulin.

So where does this iron come from?

• One big problem is the fortification of foods with iron.

What do we do about this?

• Don’t consume fortified foods
• Consume less red meat (if you have a problem with too much iron)
• Chelation – IP6/EDTA
• Donate blood
• Avoid iron supplements or supplements with iron
