Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when your blood glucose or blood sugar is too high. Blood glucose or blood sugar is the main sugar found in your blood. It is your main source of energy that comes from the foods and drinks consumed.
The question of whether diabetes, a common metabolic disorder, is genetic is frequently brought up in conversation. This article will take a holistic look at diabetes from the unique vantage points of iridology and nutrition, exploring the genetic factors that play a role in its onset. Let’s delve deep to understand the intricate connections between health, genetics, and lifestyle.
The Genetic Puzzle of Diabetes
A complicated interplay of genetic and environmental factors influences diabetes, which includes Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes. While genetics do have an impact, they are only one piece of the puzzle.
In the human being composite chart on the below, you will see that Genetics makes up only one third of the chart.
The environment you live in and the actions you take make up the balance.
Type 1 Diabetes: The Genetic Trigger
Type 1 diabetes is frequently diagnosed in childhood or adolescence and is brought on by an autoimmune response that destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. In Iridology, the iris provides valuable insights about a person’s constitution and predispositions, or the genetic make-up of the person. The study of the iris of the eye to identify changes in the body and its organs, as well as genetic strengths and weaknesses, can reveal potential vulnerabilities.
Type 1 diabetes susceptibility is increased by specific genetic markers, such as specific HLA genes. The key is realising that environmental factors, such as infections, toxins, and even emotional stress, initiate the autoimmune response while genetics serve as a trigger. Iridologists have found links between iris signs and potential autoimmune tendencies. Early detection of these tendencies can empower people to take proactive measures to strengthen their immune systems and general wellbeing.
Type 2 Diabetes: Unravelling Genetic and Lifestyle Threads
A intriguing link between genetics and the environment can be seen in type 2 diabetes, which is frequently linked to lifestyle decisions. Although genetic predisposition does increase risk, the person’s lifestyle determines the final result. With Iridology, iris analysis can reveal details about a person’s constitution, including any inherent strengths or weaknesses. These insights can help inform personalised dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
Type 2 diabetes susceptibility is influenced by genetic variations in insulin sensitivity, production, and glucose metabolism. However, genes do not determine fate. We have seen first hand how dietary decisions may change lives.

Epigenetics: Bridging the Genetic Gap
The burgeoning field of epigenetics supports the idea that genes are not the only determinant of health. Certain genes are turned on or off by epigenetic changes affected by lifestyle factors. Nutrition, stress management, and holistic wellness practices can all have an impact on these changes.
Nutrigenomics is the study of how genetic variants impact the nutritional environment and how food and its components affect gene expression. Studies have shown that nutrigenomics’ provision of insight on specific genetic markers can play a role in diabetes care and prevention through nutrition precision and lifestyle interventions.
Monogenic Diabetes: A Testament to Genetic Complexity
The prevalence of monogenic diabetes, caused by mutations in a single gene, adds to the narrative of diabetes and genetics. These mutations impair insulin production or use, which leads to diabetes. The most prevalent type of monogenic diabetes is MODY (formerly Maturity-Onset Diabetes of the Young). It mainly occurs in children or teenagers, but it can appear in adults as well. MODY has been linked to at least nine different genes, and new genetic causes are still being discovered. Some people with MODY are able to manage their diabetes solely by lifestyle adjustments such as physical activity and healthy eating choices.
The Collaborative Approach: Genetics, Iridology, and Nutrition
The question of whether diabetes is genetic transcends disciplinary boundaries. Genetics provide a foundation, iridology offers insights into inherent predispositions, and nutrition can help in achieving optimum wellness. We believe that genes only play one-third in the future of someone’s health. The remaining two-thirds is the person’s lifestyle and actions they take to keep healthy.
With Iridology and Nutrition hand-in-hand, our approach is collaborative. Iridology guides us in identifying potential predispositions, empowering individuals to make informed choices. We can put together a perfect and personalised nutrition plan and recommend the appropriate treatment for natural healing based on our Iridology assessment. When combined, these approaches foster a holistic strategy to diabetes prevention and management.

In the diabetes nature versus nurture debate, it is evident that genetics and lifestyle both play important factors in determining an individual’s health outcome. Even though our genes may predispose us to certain diseases, they are not the only factor in determining our fate. Our health trajectory is greatly influenced by the lifestyle choices we make, the food we eat, and the actions we take.
Ultimately, diabetes is a symphony of genetics, lifestyle, and environmental factors. Understanding this symphony allows us to compose a harmonious and healthy life, regardless of genetic predispositions. Let us embrace the power of collaboration, embracing the wisdom of genetics while harnessing the transformative potential of holistic well-being.
