Diabetes, Emotions and the C Type Personality Connection

So what do we know about Diabetes as a disease? Diabetes is the de-sensitization of red blood cells to insulin, due to the high concentration of glucose in the blood serum. More insulin secreted to form the pancreas is required for the breakdown of blood glucose. High levels of insulin will result in decreased insulin receptors in red blood cells that prevent excess insulin entry into cells, creating insulin resistance, energy resistance, depression, anxiety, confusion and angry people who suffer high and low.

Some argue that diabetes is the cause of emotional distress from discomfort, although diabetes may be just a physical representation of stress and emotional repression on the inside. It is said that when someone suffering from insulin resistance and type II diabetes puts their blood glucose up and often goes up in the gradient until the emotional state returns to its normal level. The state also increases the level of Cortisol and affects adrenal suppression, kicking off the adrenal sympathetic reaction to the fight or flight.

So what is causing this emotional anxiety? To name a few; financial commitments, concerns, relationship problems, children, work, traffic, pollution, lack of sleep, economic conditions, world affairs, and so on. Often these situations are also related to emotions of doom and gloom, depression, lack of control,, low self-esteem, fear, anger, sadness, shame, guilt etc.

Dr. Linda Mundof (ND) and Dr Gabor Mate (Canadian doctors) have studied the relationship between personality types and the onset of illness. Type A intelligence is a person at risk for pain, immune suppression, asthma, cancer and diabetes. Type C is in contrast to Type A people (who are easily sick and have difficulty maintaining feelings under the wrap) and Type B people (who have a healthy balance of emotional expression). Type C people are bullies, troublemakers, troublemakers. He has a calm, rational and immoral attitude, but also a tendency to conform to others' desires, a lack of firmness, and a tendency toward feelings of helplessness or despair and inferiority.

Type C people tend to admire the emotions they experience as they struggle to express themselves, causing them to suffer chronically, with increased blood pressure, increased fat, muscle loss, diabetes, heart problems, decreased immunity, digestive problems, increased appetite, tiredness , brain fog, memory loss, anxiety and depression. It also increases Cortisol which lowers the level of DHEA, resulting in muscle wasting and premature aging.

Dr Mate also began to notice patterns when studying Type C personalities: individuals who could not express anger or other emotions, who did not seem to be aware of their own priorities seem to be most vulnerable to other attacks of auto-immune imbalance in which the body's immune system actually began to attack. on the inside. These diseases include asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

So let's take a look at who's at risk for type II diabetes, when we start to think that their typical type 2 diabetes tends to be overweight, middle-aged, women between the ages of 25-44 and men between the ages of 45-74 (National 1999-2005 diabetes list, http://www.aihw.gov.au). As a social judgment, one can say that overweight people display laziness, with a lack of motivation and self-esteem and control, general emotional weakness despite not being clear about their emotional status and someone who may experience significant emotional or trauma events with many internal conflicts.

So what if we saw Diabetes not as a clinical disease but as a patient's emotional / mental incapacity. This internal discomfort moves the patient to a state of chronic stress where the coping mechanism is represented as either physical or emotional repetition, such as eating more to feel better mentally. These emotional foods lead to foods that are generally high in sugar, creating stimulation of serotonin and dopamine. This stimulation temporarily improves mental status but suppresses the state of anxiety represented in it. This cannot be maintained by the suppressed emotional state then the imbalance in the internal homeostasis of the body and here lies the mind, the connection of the body.

Therefore, you can hypothesize that your typical type of diabetes is someone with type C personality disorder, emotionally reactive, chronic stress, suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder and suppressing their emotions leading to fatigue, depression, anxiety, high blood pressure, blood glucose and cortisol, with a higher likelihood of auto-immune disease that is considered to be a common malignancy known as diabetes.

When we think about controlling our diabetes, we think about doing this with diet and exercise that are often combined with medication. Rarely do we even consider the fourth leg, emotional health.

Emotions and diabetes are two-way, interconnected. When our emotional status is positive, we can better control our physical triggers for diabetes such as stress reduction and emotional nutrition and when we control our diabetes, we feel better with increased emotional stability, self-esteem and confidence.

A study published by Annals of behavioral management (Katherine T Fortenberry M.Sc 2006), looked at the fluctuation of positive and negative emotions toward daily task competencies that had a direct effect on blood glucose. The study involved sixty-two adolescents with type one diabetes who were required to complete a two-week daily diary summarizing their mood, emotions and average blood glucose levels, overall confidence in their ability to manage their diabetes, and their ability to manage daily diabetes tasks, such as Eat healthy foods and take insulin.

Adolescents who report more positive emotions, such as happiness or happiness, self-control and achievement tend to be lower, actually near normal blood glucose levels. Those who report negative feelings such as anger, sadness, guilt and failure express a tendency to higher blood glucose levels, concluding that emotions can positively and negatively affect blood glucose.

Looking at the results of this study, wouldn't it be logical to support those who are emotionally diabetic and deal with internal conflicts that underlie the onset of stress reactions from overcoming symptoms with pharmaceutical prescriptions?
