Bicarb vs. Insulin Resistance

pHAlo™ vs. Insulin Resistance

pHAlo was created for pH balance and optimal health. It can be used for people who are at risk for diabetes mellitus, type 2 diabetes, type 1 diabetes or other chronic diseases.

There are 29 million people in the U.S. that have diabetes and it is believed that over 8 million more may be undiagnosed and unaware of their condition. More than 1 in every 10 adults 20 years or older have diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90-95% of all diagnosed cases of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is associated with a term called INSULIN RESISTANCE.

Resistance to insulin is central to the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

INSULIN RESISTANCE occurs when the cells of the body do not respond normally to insulin (they are resistant). This resistance to insulin causes the blood sugar levels to become elevated within the body and blood. This elevated blood sugar level is damaging to the body and can cause other serious health problems due to the increased acid that develops. This acidic environment can cause heart disease, kidney disease, hypertension, hardening of the arteries, and more.

Fluctuations of blood sugar caused by insulin resistance can be reduced by becoming and maintaining an alkaline environment within the tissues and blood. This alkaline environment has been shown to decrease insulin resistance thus reducing health risks associated with diabetes.

The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey studied 1,496 adults without diabetes or other chronic diseases and found that lower bicarbonate levels and higher anion gap (acidosis) are independently associated with insulin resistance.

A low saliva pH (too much acid) has been shown to be a predictor in insulin resistance and obesity that may result in a condition known as Metabolic Syndrome. Metabolic Syndrome is characterized by a number of interrelated clinical disorders that include obesity, high blood sugar, insulin resistance, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, inflammation, and increased bad cholesterol levels. Especially at risk for metabolic syndrome are perimenopausal and postmenopausal women.

Plasma bicarbonate levels and the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus were studied in 630 women who did not have type 2 diabetes mellitus at the time of the study. The results of the study revealed higher plasma bicarbonate levels (less acid) were associated with decreased incidence of type 2 diabetes among these women.

Studies have revealed the importance of promoting an alkaline environment and the reduction of resistance to insulin that occurs.
Several mechanisms may lead to insulin resistance and thereby contribute to the development of type 2 DM, including fatty acid metabolism, mitochondrial dysfunction and systemic inflammation. Metabolic acidosis may also contribute to insulin resistance. Mild metabolic acidosis reduces tissue insulin sensitivity. Metabolic acidosis may also increase cortisol production, which in turn is implicated in the development of insulin resistance.
