In a healthy body, the pancreas produces insulin and the insulin manages and helps the body to use sugar and carbohydrates properly. The adult disease diabetes is called insulin-independent diabetes mellitus. The Family Medical Guide by the AMA defines it as follows:
“Insulin-independent diabetes: In this form of diabetes mellitus, which usually affects people over 40, the insulin-producing cells in your pancreas function, but the output of insulin is inadequate for your body’s needs. People who have this form of the disorder usually eat too much and are overweight. Their overeating causes an excess of glucose in their blood, and the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin to cope with it. Heredity is also an important factor. In nearly a third of all cases, there is a family history of the malady. Age is also a factor, because the efficiency of your pancreas decreases with age”.
Alkaline water therapies
Dr. Keijiro Kuwabara of Japan has been clinically treating diabetes quite successfully by the use of alkaline water. He reports that a 49 year old insurance company employee was diagnosed by the company physician as having a case of insulin-independent diabetes mellitus. With only one month’s use of alkaline water, the sugar count came down to virtually an undetectable level, from 300mg/dl one month previously.
The pancreas produces one of the highest pH body fluids, pancreatic juice, with a pH value of 8.8. A shortage of calcium ions in the body impairs the production and the release of the insulin hormone. This eventually leads to an acidic blood condition. Clogged blood vessels caused by excess protein build up also impairs pancreatic function. Alkaline water, by supplying calcium in an ionized form and by helping prevent excess protein build up, can help prevent and heal this condition.
As we age (we know this statement to mean “as we accumulate acidic waste products”), the efficiency of our pancreas decreases. Apparently we accumulate acidic waste products around the pancreas, men more so than women. Men initially begin to build up fatty acids around the waist.
Adult diseases and heredity
Heredity here may mean that somehow in that particular family, there is a tendency to accumulate waste products at or near the pancreas first. Until they reach 40, the amount of acid accumulation is not sufficient enough to slow down the functions of the pancreas. This means that if we prevent wastes from accumulating by means of alkaline water, that person will not get diabetes even if he reaches 70 or 80 years old.
After all, he didn’t have diabetes when he was 30 years old; that is, he didn’t have enough of an acidic waste build up until that time. Chronologically he may reach 40 or 50, but if he can keep the level of the wastes to that of 30 years old, he will never get diabetes. Heredity may not have to be related to chronological age.
The alkaline water treatment will not apply to diabetes of different causes such as a damaged pancreas, etc.

Research done on Diabetes and Hydrogen Water
Please find below a collection of research articles that have been done with Hydrogen Water and Diabetes.
Our study demonstrates that H2 exerts metabolic effects similar to those of insulin and may be a novel therapeutic alternative to insulin in type 1 diabetes mellitus that can be administered orally.
The present results suggest the potential benefit of H (2) in improving obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
H2, Pt NPs, and their combined use resulted in activation of glucose uptake signal transduction pathways and stimulation of glucose uptake into L6 myotubes. In the groups of H2, Pt NPs and their combined use groups, blood sugar levels and impaired sugar tolerance of type 2 diabetes model mouse (KK-Ay) were significantly improved, suggesting that H2, Pt NPs and H are redox regulation factors in animal cells.
In 4 of 6 patients with IGT, intake of hydrogen-rich water normalized the oral glucose tolerance test. In conclusion, these results suggest that supplementation with hydrogen-rich water may have a beneficial role in prevention ofT2DM and insulin resistance. In conclusion, the results of this study show for the first time that supplementation with hydrogen-rich pure water has beneficial effects on lipid and glucose metabolism in humans. On the basis of these findings. We conclude that a sufficient supply of this water may prevent or delay development and progression of T2DM and insulin resistance by providing protection against oxidative stress. However, because of the small sample of patients in this study, the results should be interpreted with caution. An appropriately designed, large-scale, prospective clinical study is therefore necessary to confirm our findings.
The analysis using the DBNBS reduction method and the DCFH-DA intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) determination method revealed that ERW and diseases-improvable natural waters such as Nordenau water in Germany and Hita water in Japan were all reduced waters (RWs) which could function as active hydrogen donors and intracellular ROS scavengers. RWs suppressed the activity of protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP), which inactivates insulin receptor, suggesting their anti-type 2 diabetes effects via redox regulation. The clinical test of 356 diabetes patients drinking Nordenau water in Germany resulted in the improvement of the relevant tests parameters after 6 days, suggesting the correlation of these changes with the fluctuation of ROS levels in their blood.
These results suggest that electrolyzed reduced water can prevent apoptosis of pancreatic β-cells and the development of symptoms in type 1 diabetes model mice by alleviating the alloxan-derived generation of reactive oxygen species.
These findings suggest that AH is therefore capable of anti-oxidation and it also has a controlling effect on the blood glucose level in type 2 diabetes.
