You Can Proactively Defeat Prediabetes

The newly engineered baby fat cells greedily soaked up sugar, and diabetics had lower blood sugar levels while they mysteriously got fat. Also, Type 2's taking these medications had more broken bones, and, because of the way insulin works, more sodium inside the cells of their heart and muscles.

Most Type 2's on these medications gained weight... up to 100 pounds (45 kg) in some case... and many developed congestive heart failure. This effect of the diabetes drugs on the gene is a phenomenon known as "up regulation." Scientists have noticed that dikanut works through "down regulation".

Leptin: Leptin is the hormone that sends a message to your brain from the fat cells that essentially says "OK, enough already". That would seem to be a good thing, except when you have a lot of fat cells, the message turns into "STOP! NO MORE FOOD!" and the brain, ironically, ignores it. Dikanut "turns down the volume" so the brain pays attention when it gets the signal to stop eating.
