Diabetes Treatment - Are Your Medications keeping You Alive? Learn How to Add Years to Your life!
Diabetes treatment involves several aspects of control of this crippling disease. It doesn't just involve just medications, it also includes:
- proper eating habits
alternate methods such as natural healing methods.
Let's start with medications.
For some, medication is the only treatment used. Type 2 diabetics usually start out using oral pills.
Oral pills help to either stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin or stimulate the cells to allow sugars to be taken out of the body (the pancreas is still working but the cells are resistant to the insulin produced by the pancreas). Some of these include:
and Glyset (miglitol) just to name a few of many.
The problem with many pills used in diabetes treatment are the side affects which may include:
storing fat that may cause weight gain
some may even increase the chance of heart attach
Oral medications also do not deal with the cause of diabetes, it's like putting a band aid on a gunshot wound.
And of course there's insulin. Insulin has it's problems also. (see below).
When type 2 diabetics can't control their sugars with Oral medicatios they end up taking insulin shots.
This though is the first step for type 1 diabetics, as the pancreas for one reason or another has stopped producing insulin altogether and take insulin daily
The pancreas is not dead as I have heard many say - producing insulin is not the pancreas's only function!.
Insulin is a hormone that regulates carbohydrate and fat metabolism in the body. Insulin causes cells in the liver, muscle, and fat tissue to take up glucose from the blood, storing it as glycogen in the liver and muscle but insulin has it's issues too!
I prefer the natural method of not only controlling diabetes, but eliminating it altogether! Now I'm not putting down medications for diabetes treatment, heck! these medicines prolonged my life! But...
...I'm just "keepin" it real.
The body in most cases will heal itself naturally if given the proper opportunity.
The natural way is always the best way because there are no side affects and the the problem itself is the focus and not just limited controlling of the disease.
There are many natural foods and supplements that will reverse type 2 diabetes, I've been told that even some type 1's are reversing theirs!
Eating the right types of foods and supplements along with exercise is the key (they'll even work if you don't exercise, but exercising quickens the healing processg.
