According to the Journal of American Medical Association, (JAMA), about 60 percent of Americans are obese and have out-of-control glucose metabolism. They say that this is a worldwide medical problem and believe it or not, JAMA says that China and India are the first in line with this diabetes and glucose problem. America comes in a close third.
The problem starts with being overweight, with a poor sugar and carbohydrate diet. The covid-19 lockdown did not help with this severe health problem. Diabetes is just a symptom and not the cause. According to graham Simpson, M.D. toxins, obesity, and inflammation of the small intestine are the problem. Dr. Simpson says that some of the fast foods, sugars, carbohydrate foods, hormones, and resulting chemistry changes are “generators of obesity.”
Doctors use drugs and insulin to control diabetes. They say they are using drugs and insulin to control blood sugar. Dr. Simpson says these drugs and insulin do not control blood sugar or cure diabetes, but just treat the symptoms. Many doctors do not realize that type II diabetes creates more insulin plus causes insulin resistance in body cells. The problem is too much insulin, not too little insulin. Eventually if not controlled, diabetes can be the cause of blood clots, blindness, heart attacks, strokes, dementia, and many other auto-immune diseases. Insulin is also one of the most inflammatory substances produced in your body.
Most people know of only two types of diabetes. At the University of Washington, they say that dementia and Alzheimer’s disease can be called Type III diabetes.
Type I diabetes is where the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin. It is not hard to control if the person monitors their blood sugar and gets regular insulin. Many children are now getting type I diabetes. It has increased since the beginnings of the covid-19 pandemic.
Type II diabetes is a condition where the body does not use the insulin produced by the pancreas efficiently. What results is that glucose can’t enter the body cells (body cell resistance) and the resistance causes many problems in the body. The glucose builds up in your bloodstream. This may result in high blood sugar, gaining body weight, high blood pressure, and many other problems. Older people are most prone to get type II diabetes. It is many times called “adult-onset diabetes.” If not checked, it can cause many of the diseases mentioned above.
About 30 million people in the U.S. have diabetes according to the JAMA. Another 85 million have been estimated to be prediabetics. The term is used when a person has higher than normal blood sugar (glucose). One of the reasons is that the average consumption of sugar in the U.S. is 22 teaspoons of sugar and sugar derivatives per person every day. That does not take into account the many carbohydrates that when consumed turn into glucose in the body.
Type III diabetes has recently been publicized at the University of Washington in Seattle. The university of Wahington researchers have written several publications saying that type III diabetes is related to Alzheimer’s disease. Their studies show that in Alzheimer’s disease there is evidence of insulin resistance. This also has a deteriorating effect on the brain. When researchers autopsied the brains of former Alzheimer’s disease patients, they found above normal levels of insulin in the brain. This is the same condition that type II diabetes patients have, showing higher than normal levels of insulin in their brains. The researchers also found that when Alzheimer’s disease worsens, the size and function in the brain also deteriorate.
Something very interesting about obesity is that many of the overweight people in the U.S. or an estimated 100 million people, have Candida Albicans fungus. That is the start of a cascade of toxins. I have mentioned it many times. Some medical publications state that type II diabetes is related to inflammation. It is estimated that a combination of chronic obesity, diabetes, and Candida fungus may reduce people’s life span as much as 12 to 15 years.
Another interesting statistic is that when the pancreas has a problem with excess glucose blood metabolism, a by-product is “amyloid protein” in the brain. Amyloid protein is found in almost all Alzheimer’s diseases. This condition can start when a person is middle-aged and progresses slowly until it is diagnosed. During this time period, many people have continually had a diet composed of excess sugar and carbohydrates. This should be a great example in deciding that it may not be worth 12 to 15 years of a person’s life to continue on this kind of diet.

Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. graduated from the University Of Washington School Of Dentistry in 1957. After two years of service in the Air Force, he started a private practice in East Wenatchee, Washington. For the past 45 years his practice has included Orthodontics and TM Dysfunction treatment specializing in temporomandibular pain treatment, headache, head and neck pain control, functional jaw orthopedics, and straight wire orthodontics. Associated with mercury elimination, oral surgery, crowns and bridges is TMJ treatment, diet control, parasite elimination, intestinal cleansing and healing (wellness).
Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has taught advanced courses for dentists on TM Dysfunction treatment, orthodontics and related pain control for more than 30 years. In 1972 he was the first dentist in Washington to use straight wire orthodontics and the first dentist to correct vertical deficiencies in children by placing vertical dimension-primary molar buildups and/or vertical (erupting) appliances. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. was involved with the first group of dentists to recognize lateral tongue splinting in young infants and integrate functional and fixed techniques to correct vertical dimension deficiencies and condylar placement. He is the originator of vertical dimension-primary molar build ups, which help to correct deep bites and Otitus media in children. He invented the Loudon-Chateau Anterior Repositioning Appliance, the functional muscle malocclusion concept, the twelve commandments of occlusion and the vertical overbite domino rule. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has written numerous articles in several American and foreign dental journals and has lectured in over 50 cities and 7 foreign countries on functional jaw orthopedics, fixed wire orthodontics, Otitus media treatment and TM Dysfunction treatment. He has been instrumental in setting up criteria for teaching in the International Association For Orthodontics, including the certified instructor program.
Dr. Loudon is a member of The American Dental Association, Diplomat and Senior Instructor in the International Association for Orthodontics, and is a Diplomat of the American Academy of Pain Management. He also is a member of the American Orthodontic Society.
