For more than 500 Russian medical doctors, the cause of diabetes mellitus is
known. Each and every person with diabetes
mellitus is a heavy breather. This fact was confirmed by all 5
Western clinical studies that measured minute ventilation in patients with diabetes

a result of heavy breathing, people with
diabetes mellitus have reduced blood flow and O2
delivery to vital organs and extremities of the body.
According to numerous medical studies, tissue hypoxia causes poor blood glucose and delayed
insulin control, and increased insulin resistance (see clinical research related to
causes of diabetes mellitus).
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) causes spasm of blood vessels and the reduced Bohr effect (less oxygen is released in tissues by red blood cells).
Overbreathing decreases O2 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.

Proven medical treatment for diabetes
the 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.
