Prediabetes and type 2 diabetes are caused by a drop in insulin sensitivity blamed on “intramyocellular lipid,” the buildup of fat inside our muscle cells.

Subscribe to Dr. Greger’s free nutrition newsletter at https://www.nutritionfacts.org/subscribe and get a free recipe from his new HOW NOT TO DIE COOKBOOK. (All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from the sales of his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements go to support the 501c3 nonprofit that runs NutritionFacts.org.)

The most concerning downside of low-carb diets, though, is heart health: Low Carb Diets and Coronary Blood Flow (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/low-c...)

This is the first of a 3-part video series on the cause of type 2 diabetes, so as to better understand dietary interventions to prevent and treat the epidemic. Next, in The Spillover Effect Links Obesity to Diabetes (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-s...), I talk about how that fat can come either from our diet or excess fat stores, and then in Lipotoxicity: How Saturated Fat Raises Blood Sugar (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/lipot...) show how not all fats are equally to blame.

Here are some of my recent diabetes videos with a bunch more on the way:
• Lifestyle Medicine Is the Standard of Care for Prediabetes (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/lifes...)
• Diabetics Should Take Their Pulses (http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/d...)
• How to Prevent Prediabetes from Turning into Diabetes (http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/h...)
• How to Prevent Prediabetes in Children (http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/h...)
• Plant-Based Diets and Diabetes (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/Plant...)
• Preventing Prediabetes By Eating More (http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/p...)
