Does Sugar cause Diabetes? NO. -- Do Carbohydrates cause Diabetes? NO. -- What causes Diabetes then? FAT. Diabetes is from Eating Fat and Becoming Fat. Ingesting Saturated Fats such as the kind found in Meat and being Fat is what can end in Diabetes. These lead to Intra-Muscular fat called Intra-Myocellular Tri-Glycerides ( IMTG's ). IMTG's are like the marbling of fat in the muscle of a steak, except it is inside your muscle. This can occur not just in obese people, but can also occur in athletes who eat a lot of meat such as in the paleo diet or crossfit and lead to problems. IMTG's convert into metabolites called Ceramides and Diacylglycerols, which may damage pancreatic cells and lead to "insulin resistance".
Insulin-resistance is due to Fat, not carbs or sugar. The pancreas does not get "overworked" by producing too much insulin from carbs. That is from a diet-book, not science. The pancreas needs carbs in order to work Normally. Eating carbs, even a small amount of sugar, can actually help the pancreas because it stimulates it to produce more insulin which then can bring down the blood-sugar ("glucose") which is the actual culprit, not table-sugar ("sucrose"). In humans, carbs aren't "Non-Essential". Humans Need carbs. In fact, the human brain operates on carbs. Without carbs your brain gets thrust into a "starvation-mode" where it is forced into using abnormal ketones or creatines for fuel instead. This stresses the brain. The human brain normally runs nearly exclusively on carbs.
The problem is not too much insulin, too much carbs, or sugar, the problem is Fat and not enough insulin. Fats can damage the pancratic cells, such as from a high-fat low-carb diet like the: Atkins diet, Paleo Diet, Dukan or Low-Carb diets. These are low in carbs and sugar yet are often linked to Diabetes. Vegetarian and Vegan diets are high in carbs yet are shown to reverse Diabetes. You'd think it would be the reverse. The reason low-carb or paleo diets are sometimes incorrectly *claimed* to 'help' diabetes is only if the person loses weight. Losing the weight is what is counter-acting those diets' damage. The effects are coming from the weight-loss not the food.
But the problem with low-carb diets is people often gain the weight back. Low-carb diets which contain a lot of meat protein begin to damage the kidneys. Thus although one may lose weight initially, a low-carbohydrate meat-based diet will eventually begin to damage your health. Often between 6 months and a year. Then the individual needs to get off the diet. Inevitably the subject often gains the weight back. So now the paleo or lowcarber has kidney, heart, and health damage, or cancer, and is fat again.
Note: Fructose is also found Not linked to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Fructose was exonerated. Reports saying fructose was harmful in itself turned out to be from diet-book authors, not Science. Once tested these claims were found false. Although it is not good to ingest High Fructose Corn Syrup or HFCS in such volumes that you become obese, the fructose itself is not "toxic" per se. That is a myth. In fact, fruit is well known to be healthy for you despite the fact that fruit contains sugar. Fruit has fructose. In fact, that is how fructose is named, it is Fruit-sugar. Yet fruit is healthy. In fact, eating something such as an apple, which indeed contains fructose, can actually reduce your risk of Diabetes. It also lowers cholesterol and can build muscle. The fructose myth scared some people away from eating fruit (which actually reduces diabetes) and goaded subjects to ingest more meat which turns out linked to Diabetes. Eating Sugar Does Not Cause Diabetes.
