Diabetes Type 1, Diabetes Type 2, and Breathing Biomechanics

An analysis of the difference between Type 2 diabetes and Type 1 diabetes helps reveal the causes of both types of diabetes.

In the case of Type 2 diabetes, the pancreas produces more insulin (than the body is supposed to need).

In the case of Type 1 diabetes, the pancreas produces less insulin (than the body is supposed to need).

As a result of differences in habitual posture and musculoskeletal alignment, people with Type 2 diabetes have different breathing biomechanics from people with Type 1 diabetes.

Breathing mainly with the abdomen (belly breathing) overstimulates the pancreas. (Pancreas is in the abdomen, behind the stomach.) breathing with the bottom portion of the lungs).

2) Biomechanics of breathing in Type 2 diabetes is characterised by breathing with the lower portion of the lungs. (Certain posture, musculoskeletal profiles, and activities, like sitting on the sofa, couch etc., force or promote breathing with the lower portion of the lungs.)

1) Biomechanics of breathing in Type 1 diabetes is characterized by breathing with the upper portion of the lungs. ( Certain physical activities like cycling, heavyweight lifting, etc., promote breathing with the lungs’ upper portion.

Breathing mainly with the upper part of the trunk -upper chest breathing, typical by people with Lower Chest Forward Posture, doesn’t sufficiently stimulate the pancreas. Insufficient mechanical stimulation of the pancreas results in reduced work of the pancreas. In that case, the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin. When the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin, it causes Type 1 diabetes. Still, not all people with type 1 diabetes require the same amount of insulin administration because, in some type 1 diabetics, the pancreas reduces insulin production more and less in others. The more breathing biomechanics is faulty, the less insulin the pancreas produces. (Note! In both of type diabetes, the cause is faulty breathing biomechanics; In Type 1 diabetes, faulty breathing biomechanics is mainly reflected in breathing with the upper chest – the pancreas is mechanically understimulated. In Type 2 diabetes, the faulty breathing biomechanics is reflected in breathing mainly with the belly – the pancreas is mechanically overstimulated.)
