Introduction

 In 2005, I have noticed that people with type 1 diabetes share certain postural and musculoskeletal characteristics. I came to the idea - hypothesis that the cause for Type 1 diabetes is adverse musculoskeletal changes, improper development of the musculoskeletal system and faulty biomechanics.

Since 2005 and until today, I have examined all the facts that was available to me about type 1 diabetes, and I have found that they support the hypothesis that Type 1 diabetes is due to adverse musculoskeletal changes, improper musculoskeletal development along with faulty biomechanics.
 
The facts about type 1 diabetes which I have examined are: 
  • The examples of islet cells regeneration (spontaneous regeneration). 
  • Remission phase in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus. 
  • Type 1 diabetes during pregnancy. 
  • Pancreas size linked to type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) risk.  
  • Duration of Type 1 diabetes and the size of the pancreas - The pancreas has a reduced size in patients with long-standing T1DM.
  • Brittle diabetes (uncontrolled type 1 diabetes).
  • Low bone mineral density in T1DM.
  • Seasonal variation of T1DM diagnosis - Children are more likely to develop T1DM in winter.  
  • Early respiratory infection may double Type 1 diabetes risk. 
  • Relation between the occurrence of type 1 diabetes and asthma.  
  • Onset of Type 1 Diabetes in Adults.  
  • Type 1 diabetes develops slightly more slowly among adults than in children. 
  • The Rise of Childhood T1DM in the 20th Century - The incidence of childhood type 1 diabetes increased worldwide in the closing decades of the 20th century.  
  • Geography of T1DM - Migrant studies have been of limited quality, but it suggests that children adopt the risk of their host country.  
  • Ethnic Differences in Incidence of T1DM – lower prevalence of Type 1 diabetes among black and minority ethnic groups.  
  • Exercise induced high blood sugar (hyperglycaemia) in Type 1 Diabetics.  
  • Exercise-Induced low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia) in Type 1 diabetics.
  • Post-exercises induced low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia) in Type 1 diabetics. 
 
My Hypothesis about Cause, Prevention and Cure for Type 1 Diabetes are: 

1. Improper musculoskeletal development, adverse musculoskeletal changes and faulty biomechanics are the causes of Type 1 diabetes

2. Preventing improper development of the musculoskeletal system will prevent Type 1 diabetes. (Improper development of the musculoskeletal system is due to faulty biomechanics) 

3. Reversing the adverse musculoskeletal changes (correcting musculoskeletal anatomy), along with correcting faulty biomechanics will cure Type 1 diabetes. (Correcting musculoskeletal anatomy is possible only by correcting faulty biomechanics).   

 

Warning: Any possible attempt to induce musculoskeletal changes in order to treat and cure Type 1 diabetes without understanding the role of biomechanics in Type 1 diabetes may induce serious or fatal consequences.
Here are just a few reasons for this;  
1. Adverse musculoskeletal changes is one factor of Type 1 diabetes.
 
2. Faulty biomechanics is another factor of Type 1 diabetes.
 
3. Reduced size of the pancreas in people with T1DM.
 
4. Low bone mineral density in people with T1DM.
 
5. Exercises in some cases induce hyperglycaemia - high blood sugar and in some cases induce hypoglycaemia - abnormally low level of sugar (glucose) in the blood.
 
6 – The real danger of death while sleeping. “One in 20 type 1 diabetics die in their sleep due to a sudden drop in their blood sugar.”
 Please note: The purpose of publishing this research on the internet is to initiate a clinical trial conducted by medical doctors involved in the research of diabetes along with people involved in biomechanics research like chiropractor, osteopaths, physiotherapists, podiatrists, etc. 
 
 

Chiropractic Pioneering Research into Type 1 Diabetes

 

The exciting fact is that there are plenty of unrefuted reports of chiropractic care improving type I diabetes. The depressing fact is that before they discover what causes and cures type 1 diabetes, many Chiropractors accepted the spine-nerve-blood sugar connection theory. (I couldn’t find who the author of this theory is. It seems that this theory came from nowhere, but has been accepted by many.)

 

The spine-nerve-blood sugar connection theory is a kind of theory that is impossible to prove or to disprove. Even if is possible to prove as being right, it is impossible to see any practical value regarding prevention, treatment and cure of type 1 diabetes. At this stage of human knowledge the spine-nerve-blood sugar connection theory - should be classified as a metaphysical explanation.

 

The real value of chiropractic research lies in their courage and effort to treat type 1 diabetes in a nonconventional method. The idea of the nonconventional method is based on their observation of spines in people affected with type 1 diabetes.

 

Their interesting and promising attempt to reduce vertebral subluxations in order to improve or even cure is not far away from the truth. The problem is that they didn’t give enough attention to the rest of the body. The spine-nerve-blood sugar connection theory is a very likely reason for not providing attention to the rest of the body.

 

Concentrating only on vertebral subluxation is not enough to effectively treat or cure type 1 diabetes and it doesn’t offer an understanding what is really responsible for the development of type 1 diabetes and how to prevent the development of type 1 diabetes. The fact is that many obese children are effected with vertebral subluxation but the type 1 diabetes is non-existent among obese children. (More about obesity and type 1 diabetes can be found on page 10 in the article “Obesity Protects against Type 1 Diabetes”.)

 

However, chiropractors are the first ones that have successfully treated patients with type 1 diabetics with non-surgical and non-pharmaceuticals means and they have made pioneering research’s. This leads to the conclusion that concerning the prevention, treatment and cure of Type 1 Diabetes, chiropractors have to be involved to a significant extent.
