New Study Highlights Possible Link Between Vaccines and Diabetes

Newly published data by Dr. J. Barthelow Classen in the Open Endocrinology Journal shows a 50 percent reduction of type 2 diabetes among Japanese children following the discontinuation of a tuberculosis vaccine. There is currently what is considered a global epidemic of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, which includes obesity, altered blood cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, and increased blood glucose resulting from insulin resistance.

A possible link between insulin-dependent diabetes (type 1) and vaccines has already been suggested by numerous studies. Dr. Classen suggests that after receiving a vaccine, some people may develop a hyperactive immune system leading to autoimmune destruction of insulin-secreting cells. Other people may increase cortisol production as the body attempts to suppress the vaccine-induced inflammation. The increased cortisol leads to type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
