How Chelation Therapy Treats Diabetes Type II

Updated on August 15, 2014

Treat diabetes type II with chelation therapy


Diabetes consists of high amount of sugar, particularly glucose, in the blood. There are two types of diabetes, sometimes called diabetes mellitus.

Diabetes mellitus type I starts when the person is still a baby. Diabetes mellitus type II sets in when the person is already an adult.

Blood sugar is controlled by insulin, a hormone secreted by islets of Langerhans cells of the pancreas. If these cells were working well, there would be no diabetes. If they are healthy they work well. The pancreas should be protected.

It is highly probable that the destruction of pancreas cells starts in the fetus. The reason is that vitamin E that protects against frees radical and derivatives, cannot pass through the placenta. You remember that the first vitamin given to a newborn is vitamin E.

Destructive agents

The most destructive agents to the b cells are free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS). Sometimes destruction results in insulin resistance, also called syndrome X. This consists of few insulin receptors in muscle cells. A receptor is a tubelike protuberance in the surface of a cell that passses through the cell membrane, part of it protrudes outside the cell, part of it protrudes inside the cell. A hormone, like insulin, can affect the inside of the cell just by attaching on the receptor. Insulin does not have to get inside the cell to affect the cell. So, if there were only a few insulin receptors only a small amount of sugar gets into the cell. Sugar accumulates in the blood.

Another feature of insulin resistance is that the insulin receptor had been damaged by free radicals and ROS. This further lessens the amount of sugar getting into the cells.

In insulin resistance, there is a good amount of insulin in the blood but a lot of them do not work. One reason is that chromium III is lacking. Chromium III binds insulin to insulin receptors like a glue.

So the neutralization or catching of free radicals and ROS protect insulin receptors from destruction and ensures that existing receptors work well.

Free radicals and ROS

A free radical is an atom or molecule or fragment of molecule with at least one unpaired electron in its outermost orbital. For example, atomic oxygen that has eight electrons. An orbital is a path of electrons around the nucleus of an atom. Atomic oxygen has two paired electrons in its first orbital. It has six electrons in its second orbital. Four of them are paired. Two are not paired. Each spin separately in parallel direction which is unique for atomic oxygen. The third orbital is empty that attracts electrons of other atoms or molecules, responsible for oxygen compounds. A molecular oxygen consists of two atomic oxygen. This time two unpaired electrons spin around the whole molecule. Another free radical, superoxide, is formerly a molecular oxygen. It has one unpaired electron.

It is the unpaired electron that does damage. An unpaired electron is unstable and to stabilize itself it grabs another electron of a neighboring molecule. The victim of grabbing is injured. If a DNA of a cells were grabbed of its electrons it is injured that results in tumor or cancer. Injury also results in death of cell.

Examples of ROS are hydrogen peroxide, peroxynitrite, lipid peroxide and more. Hydrogen peroxide is formed when the enzyme superoxide dismutase attaches one proton and one atom of hydrogen to superoxide (Sharma, H., MD. Freedom from Disease. 1993). Peroxynitrite is formed when superoxide combines with nitric oxide. Lipid peroxide is formed when molecular oxygen combines with an oxidized cholesterol. Lipid peroxide contributes to the formation of plaque in arteries like carotid and coronary heart artery.

We produce superoxide during metabolism of glucose to produce energy. There are several metabolisms in the body that produce superoxides.

How to control free radicals and ROS

One, reduce exposure to them. They are also found in the environment like pollution, nitrous oxide is a ROS. Exposure to the sun produces free radicals like singlet oxygen and ROS like hydroxyl radical.

One way to neutralize a free radical and ROS is to supply the electron they are looking for. The common supplier of electron is hydrogen that has one electron and one proton. The bond between its electron and proton is only 5% of the ionic bond (in salt) and covalent bond (in iron). Vitamins have a lot of hydrogen atoms. Vitamin E has 37 that is why it is a good catcher of free radicals and ROS. Antioxidants like vitamin A, C, E, melatonin, coenzyme Q10 have a lot of hydrogen atoms. Carotene is the only antidote of singlet oxygen. EDTA (ethylene-diamine-tetra-acetate)is a good catcher of free radicals and ROS.

Chelation therapy for diabetes type II

Chelation therapy, whose main ingredient is EDTA, has been found as safe and effective against diabetes type II. This is a result of the study “Trials to Assess Chelation Therapy” (TACT). This is a double blind randomized study launched in 2002. Its results were announced in a meeting of the American Heart Association held in Los Angeles, California on November 4,2012.

This study was meant for heart disease. However, some of the participants in the study were also suffering from diabetes type II. They got well from chelation therapy.

Treatment solution

The solution drips from a bottle, flows down through a flexible small tube to a pediatric needle that is inserted to an artery. Solution goes directly to the blood stream.

  • 3 gram EDTA or less, based on GFR
  • Vitamin C, MgCl (magnesium chloride), KCl (potassium chloride), bicarb, procaine, heparin
  • B1, B6, pantothenic acid, to 500 cc with sterile water
  • No oral nutriceuticals except multivitamins were in the study
