For more than 500 Russian medical doctors and thousands of their patients, the cause of diabetes mellitus is known. Each and every person with diabetes mellitus is a heavy breather while breathing normalization reverses diabetes fast and naturally. This fact was confirmed by all five Western clinical studies that measured minute ventilation in patients with diabetes mellitus. All our students with diabetes, who normalized their breath, reversed all their symptoms and stopped taking any medication (insulin, etc.).
If you click on the image, you can find a table that provides all details related to these medical studies.
As a result of heavy breathing, people with diabetes mellitus have reduced blood flow and decreased oxygen delivery to vital organs and extremities of the body.
According to numerous medical studies, tissue hypoxia causes poor blood glucose control and delayed insulin regulation with possible increased insulin resistance (see clinical research related to molecular causes of diabetes mellitus).
This is not a surprise since O2 is so fundamental for normal cell and organ function. Furthermore, many other chronic diseases (such as cancer, heart disease, and cystic fibrosis) and complications of diabetes mellitus have the same cause: low body oxygenation.
Heavy and deep breathing in people with diabetes mellitus causes excessive CO2 losses. Hypocapnia (reduced CO2) in the blood causes spasm of blood vessels and the reduced Bohr effect (less oxygen is released in tissues by red blood cells).
Overbreathing decreases oxygen delivery and causes the generation of free radicals, chronic fatigue, poor sleep and many other effects. The presence of chest breathing and mouth breathing are additional common factors that worsen oxygen transport to cells and lead to more severe symptoms of diabetes mellitus.

Low Carb Diets Reverse Diabetes
It is possible to reverse high blood sugar, diabetes, and its symptoms, with reduction and elimination of medication, by using diets that are low in carbs.
In this YouTube video, Dr. Artour explains how low carb diets and ketogenic diet help to control blood glucose levels and treat diabetes naturally: Low Carb Diets Reverse Diabetes
Soviet and Russian MDs about treatment for diabetes
According to the clinical experience of over 500 Russian and Soviet medical doctors, patients with diabetes mellitus can regain normal health if they normalize their breathing.
During the 2nd conference of Buteyko doctors, Dr. Buteyko and Dr. Samotesova (Chief Endocrinologist of the Krasnoyarsk Region in Siberia) announced their clinical results related to diabetics mellitus management. What are the findings of these Soviet doctors and their diabetes mellitus treatment?
Normalization of breathing (getting back to about 6 L/min for minute ventilation with less than 70 beats/min for the heart rate at rest and more than 40 seconds for the DIY body-oxygen test) leads to the elimination of possible complications of diabetes mellitus, normal blood glucose control and no need for insulin use (Buteyko, 1991). Note that it is not important what type of diabetes mellitus one has: type 1 or type 2. Breathing normalization defeats both types of diabetes mellitus.

– Cause of Diabetes Mellitus: Recent clinical research points out that all people with diabetes have heavy breathing, while the cause of the disease on a cell level is low tissue O2 levels.
