Type-1 diabetes causes high blood sugars. High blood sugars cause kidney failure. That’s the conventional story. Maybe it’s true or maybe…
T1D causes high blood sugars. High blood sugars cause dental infections. Dental infections lead to toxic mercury fillings, infected root canals, gangrene-like cavitations, and bridges or crowns made of carcinogenic material. Such an oral cesspool leeches into the blood stream, slowly destroying the kidneys.
I’m currently working on a lengthy text looking at evidence linking toxic dental work to complications of type-1 diabetes. In case you think it sounds far-fetched that a trip to the dentist might result in kidney failure, here’s a short excerpt from the draft:
1. A 1991 Danish study by the Department of Environmental Medicine at Odense University found that even small injections of mercury into mice resulted in damage to their kidney tissue.
2. The 2012 Journal of Environmental and Public Health shows that mercuric salts “generally targets the gastrointestinal tract and the kidney.” It goes on to state that “metallic mercury is also deposited in the… kidneys.”
3. An article by Dr. Joseph Mercola describes the research of Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Weston A. Price from the early 1900s. Price would remove the root canals from patients with kidney failure and implant them under the skin of a rabbit. 80% of the time, the rabbit would develop kidney disease and often die (I guess rabbits don’t do dialysis).
4. The American Journal of Physiology published the results of an experiment on 12 female sheep. Within 30 days after receiving dental fillings all 12 sheep tested positive for impaired kidney function.
5. Autopsies recorded in the Swedish Dental Journal found that those with amalgam fillings had eight times more mercury in their kidneys than those without.
6. A study by the University of Gothenburg, Sweden found that donated kidneys averaged 6% more mercury for each amalgam filling the donor had. So if the (probably deceased) donor had five amalgams, their kidneys would have 30% more mercury than average. The study concluded that fish consumption had no effect. Instead, it states that “dental amalgams are the main determinant of kidney Hg [mercury levels].”
Canada’s ministry of health officially advises dentists that “Amalgam should not be placed in patients with impaired kidney function.”
I think it stands to reason that avoiding root canals and using non-toxic dental material would be a good idea for anybody. But especially for those with type-1 diabetes who are already at a very high risk for chronic kidney disease. In fact, many people with type-1 are already in stage one or two chronic kidney disease (and don’t even know). I suspect, they also have one or two fillings, root canals or bridges.
Note: My wife, Nicole, has type-1 diabetes, kidney failure and a mouth full of toxic dental work. I’ve now released a lengthy article explaining how we are going to get the root canals, mercury fillings, bridges, crowns and cavitations removed. I also highly recommend reading Dr. Hal Huggins second book, Uninformed Consent: The Hidden Dangers in Dental Care. It’s available from Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk.
About the Author: John C. A. Manley researches and writes about alternative treatments for type-1 diabetes and its many complications. His wife, Nicole, of 14 years (as of June 9) has had type-1 diabetes for nearly four decades. Together they have lowered her HgbA1c below 5.5%, regained thyroid function, increased kidney function and reversed gastroparesis.
