During Hungarian clinical studies of the effects of light water (deuterium depleted water - DDW, litewater) on cancer, scientists have discovered one more useful effect. «I was very shocked when people with cancer and diabetes came back and said that their blood sugar went down», - says Professor Gabor Somlyai.
After that scientists decided to check whether deuterium-depleted water is able to influence on carbohydrate metabolism in a body.
In preclinical studies and clinical trials it was found out that:
In May 2015 on the 3rd International Congress on Deuterium Depletion there was presented a report based on the materials of research carried out by an international group of scientists. The report addressed a question whether the light water (deuterium depleted water - DDW, litewater) can ease the course of diabetes, and moreover, prevent it. Tested mice had high glucose tolerance. Analysis of glucose tolerance is used for detecting concealed disorders of carbohydrate metabolism, prediabetes and initial form of diabetes. Consumption of light water compared with ordinary water significantly improved carbohydrate metabolism in the test mice, i.e. in classical clinical test light water acted as a means for preventing disorders of carbohydrate metabolism, which are specific to prediabetes and elementary forms of diabetes.
Indicative was a study  which was held in the Endocrinology Department of the Russian Scientific Center for Restorative Medicine and Balneology MOH RF7. It was attended by 50 patients with diabetes of types 1 and 2, and by 40 patients with various manifestations of metabolic syndrome.
During the tests it was found out that tested water has significant hypoglycemic, antihypertensive and hypolipidemic effects on the body. In the control group statistically significant changes in these indicators have not been identified. Among patients with diabetes of type 2 treated with light water all parameters on glycemic curve (on an empty stomach, 1 hour and 2 hours after breakfast) and also daily glucosuria (almost 3 times) decreased significantly. After consumption of placebo no significant dynamics of the studied parameters was observed.
A link between deuterium content of water and diabetes rates
There is a significant linear correlation between prevalence of diabetes among adults ≥ 18 years old and deuterium content of tap water across continental U.S.A.
Correlation between reported rates of diabetes in USA and content of deuterium in tap water.
The reported prevalence of individuals with diabetes among adults aged ≥18 years in each US state.
Geographical distribution of average deuterium content in the continental USA from samples collected from each state for 2004–2013.
If there were areas with low levels of deuterium in water, people living there possibly would not have diabetes.
Light water allows improving operation of cellular receptors and transport of glucose into the cell by unblocking a part of receptors and increasing the permeability of cell membranes for glucose. This leads to improved operation of power chains in cell and increases the level of ATP in mitochondria. As a consequence, metabolic processes improve, blood sugar level and glycosuria reduce.
