Diabetes – Understanding Diabetes

A diabetic must pay attention to their blood sugar levels because the body will not properly absorb the sugar. Elevated blood sugar (glucose) levels that are caused by insufficiency of insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, are characteristic of both type I and type II diabetes.

It is believed that in 2025, diabetes will have affected 250 million people, causing: 35 million heart attacks, 13 million strokes, 6 million episodes of renal failure, 8 million instances of blindness or eye surgery, 2 million amputations and 62 million deaths.

In America alone, 54 million people are pre-diabetic (which puts them at a high risk for contracting Type II diabetes), and another 21 million people are diabetic, according to the American Diabetes Association. In total, there are 75 million Americans who have diabetes or have high risk of getting diabetes.

The majority of physicians agree that diabetes is incurable, which is very true if you choose to curely mask the symptoms with pharmaceutical drugs. According to what they have learned in medical school, the best you could hope for is to "control" this disease with medication and insulin.

Meds like hypoglycemics can help cover up the obvious signs of the illness. They do not provide an antidote. In fact, your immune system becomes weaker and the problem worsens. Sometimes things that were meant to help us out can make matters worse.

Unfortunately, diabetic patients who use prescriptions instead of diet treatment alone are 2 1/2 times more likely to die from heart disease. And, to reiterate, there are also the side effects of medication in which the diabetic patient must end. These side effects of the medications can include liver problems like jaundice, as well as anemia, skin rashes and sometimes, death.

Anti-diabetes drugs including both oral medicine and insulin are not very health friendly. Prescription medication and insulin may damage your liver, heart, and cause other complications, including premature aging.

Solutions are available. There is a remedy for diabetes. One should, however, realize that cure is not possible by merely treating the symptoms using drugs, which only results in the perpetuation of the condition. It must be made clear that the prescription drug industry represents the most terrible deception in history.

Addressing the fundamental cause of diabetes through stimulation of the body to restore your pancreas, typically producing more insulin without the problems and side effects of drugs and medicines, is the solution.

You are probably wondering why, if that were actually true, the American Diabetes Association would not make us aware. Consider this, the reason may be because pharmaceutical companies would lose their business if people reversed the diabetic conditions.
