Antipsychotic medications double diabetes risk in children

(NaturalNews) They told him to take the pills, on time, every day, promising that his depression would go away, but all is not the same as before...
His impulses are now sudden, sharp and cutting, like the razor gripped tight in his hand. Every thought that comes to mind aches with pulses of retaliation -- some kind of violence triggered within. The chemicals in his mind seem to be overflowing like a hemorrhaging wound, spilling out and pouring through the cracks in his brain. Nothing felt the same as it had before. He couldn't tell if he was still depressed or if he was going into a state of pure mania. He walked the fine line. At night, intense sweating woke him from sleep. On some days, lethargy walked around in his shadow, like some kind of haunting ghost trying to take control, making him stumble through the day.
But the pill knew best -- at least that's what the psychiatrist thought, and his parents were in agreement too.
Sometimes his mind would feel like a bubbling brook, overflowing with ideas. Around people, he would never shut up. Other times, when he was alone, it felt like the stream was reversing motion, rushing back at him, bottling his thoughts deep inside his psyche. Still, he takes the pills on time, everyday, like eating candy from a drug company Pez dispenser. Within, he can feel the internal anger growing, gripping the razor tighter with each passing day.
Type II diabetes significantly higher in children on psychotic medicationPsychiatric drugs are an experiment being carried out on the minds of children and adults today. Users frequently report a mix of violent and suppressed emotions when on these drugs. These mind-rearranging pills can affect a user's communication and sleep patterns in negative and unsettling ways. Amongst the chaos, other negative metabolic signs can crop up too, like type II diabetes. A 10-year study from Denmark found that type II diabetes is more prevalent in those taking psychotic medications than in those with a similar psychiatric diagnosis taking no drugs.
The study, published in the September 2014 issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, investigated the lives of 48,299 children and adolescents with psychiatric disorders. The lead researcher, Dr. Rene Ernst Nielsen, from the Aalborg University Hospital in Denmark, documented the frequency of possible predictors of type II diabetes. He used national Danish registers providing information on prescribed antidiabetic drugs to further the research.
He found a clear distinction between children on psychiatric drugs and those who were not forced to go that route. The rate of diabetes in youth exposed to antipsychotic medications was significantly higher (0.72 percent) when compared to similarly diagnosed youth not exposed to the mind-altering drugs. Those who weren't forced into the psychiatric drug paradigm had a lower incidence of diabetes (0.27 percent). This shows that psychiatric drugs exhibit more than twice the diabetes risk of less invasive therapies.
It didn't matter what kind of psychiatric drug was used, either. They were all correlated with two times higher type II diabetes risk in the 10-year study.
Psychiatric drugging industry is deaf to patients' metabolic signalsThis study shows that the psychiatric drugging industry doesn't care about the holistic well-being of children or anyone for that matter. The industry is deaf to the patients' bodily signs and metabolic signals that are screaming for something much more empowering and liberating than symptom cover-up drugs. Forcing these mind-altering drugs onto children has become so routine that a growing number of children are now subjected to other health problems entirely, like diabetes, and it's practically going unnoticed.
Problems of childhood behavior cannot be helped by just stuffing their mouths shut with a pill. For some children, this kind of pharmaceutical regime makes them feel even more ignored and angry inside -- suppressed, and violent -- as they grip their razor tighter with each dose.
