5 things worth knowing about your pancreas and diabetes

The most commonly known ailment attributed to your pancreas is diabetes.

Here are five things worth knowing about the link between your pancreas, and diabetes.


There are two types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2

Type 1 diabetes, also known as child-onset diabetes, occurs when an individual’s pancreas cannot produce insulin at all. This is usually diagnosed when someone is very young.

Type 2 diabetes is adult onset, and it is preventable and curable. Type 2 diabetes is caused by excessive consumption of sugars, which over time causes the pancreas to malfunction.

This type of diabetes is unfortunately increasingly common the world over, even in young children.

Type 2 diabetes is reflective of an individual’s lifestyle, environment and food and drink choices. It is caused by the weakening of the pancreas due to the routine over-consumption of sugars.

Fortunately, given that type 2 diabetes is caused by an individual’s choices, it is eminently possible to reverse the effects, and even cure the disease.


Type 2 diabetes is reversible and eminently curable.

During his 25 plus years of clinical practice, Laurens Maas has experienced great success with clients looking to reverse the symptoms of pre-diabetes, and cure themselves of type 2 diabetes entirely.

If you are interested in learning more about Laurens’ methods, you can book an appointment at our clinic, or pick up a copy of Laurens’ book Curing Diabetes in 7 Steps.


Laurens has written multiple books about blood sugar, diabetes and its cure.

As we mentioned above, Laurens has written a book on the subject of diabetes entitled Curing Diabetes in 7 Steps. You can also pick up Laurens’ other titles including The Total Fat Cure: Solving The Fat Trap, which addresses blood sugar in depth.


Lifestyle choices have a big impact on your pancreatic health

Making lifestyle choices which align with your health goals is vital to achieving and maintaining good pancreatic health.

Lifestyle choices which can support your pancreatic health include:

  • regular exercise. This helps to burn off excess sugars.
  • meals at regular intervals throughout the day. This helps to stabilise your blood sugar.
  • A calm mind has multiple health benefits including stable cortisol levels and preventing blood pressure spikes.


Taking Chromium can help to prevent type 2 diabetes

Chromium reinforces your body’s response to insulin. Adding a Chromium supplement into your daily routine can help to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.

Laurens suggests taking a dosage of 150mcgs per day, however it is best to consult with a healthcare professional before embarking on any new supplement routines.
