I. Clinical Trial: Alkaline Water and Diabetes
Study conducted by Prof. Kuwata Keijiroo, Doctor of Medicine, Japan
"When I was serving in the Fire Insurance Association, I used to examine many diabetic patients. Besides treating them with drugs, I provided them with antioxidant water.
After drinking antioxidant water for one month, 15 diabetic patients were selected and sent to Tokyo University for further test and observations."
"Initially, the more serious patients were a bit apprehensive about the treatment. When the antioxidant water was consumed for some time, the sugar in the blood and urine ranged from a ratio of 300 mg/l to 2 mg / dc."
"There was a time where the patients had undergone 5 to 6 blood tests a day and detected to be within normal range. Results also showed that even 1 ½ hour after meals, the blood sugar and urine ratio was 100 mg/dc : 0 mg/dc.
The sugar in the urine had completely disappeared."
Background information on diabetes:
Diabetes develops due to a diminished production of insulin (in type 1) or resistance to its effects (in type 2 and gestational).
Both lead to hyperglycemia, which largely causes the acute signs of diabetes: excessive urine production, resulting compensatory thirst and increased fluid intake, blurred vision, unexplained weight loss, lethargy, and changes in energy metabolism.
According to the American Diabetes Association there are 23.6 million children and adults in the United States, or 7.8% of the population, who have diabetes.
While an estimated 17.9 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 5.7 million people (or nearly one quarter) are unaware that they have the disease.
Another 57 million people in the Unites States have Pre-Diabetes.
The total prevalence of diabetes increased 13.5% from 2005-2007.
1.6 million new cases of diabetes were diagnosed in people aged 20 years or older in 2007.
