How to Cure and Control Diabetes

Diabetes affects over 18 million people, another 15 million may not yet be diagnosed, and that is in the United States alone! Currently diabetes is the 3rd leading cause of death in America. The truth about diabetes is that the body does not produce, or properly use, the insulin necessary for the body to absorb glucose (sugar).

Diabetes affects over 18 million people, another 15 million may not yet be diagnosed, and that is in the United States alone! Currently diabetes is the 3rd leading cause of death in America. The truth about diabetes is that the body does not produce, or properly use, the insulin necessary for the body to absorb glucose (sugar). The glucose then accumulates in the bloodstream until levels get dangerously high. This condition then leads to diabetes symptoms like: lack of energy, unusual weight gain, restless sleep, blurred vision, and tingling sensations in the affected individual.

There are certain herbs for diabetes treatment that alleviate many of diabetes symptoms. These herbs are:

Banaba; well known for its ability to lower blood sugar levels and transport glucose in the bloodstream (referred to by some as "botanical insulin").

Bitter Melon; known to improve glucose tolerance and for its regulative abilities (considered the best for diabetes management by the Philippines Dept. of Health).

Cinnamon; proven to reduce the amount of insulin necessary for glucose metabolism by USDA research.

Zinc; contributes many factors to diabetes control. Zinc is essential for the pancreas to produce insulin. When zinc levels are low, diabetes treatments are hindered due to the pancreas' inability to produce the body's own insulin and insulin receptor cells may become damaged.

Biotin; important B Vitamin for processing insulin. A study has shown that Type 1 diabetics receiving 16 mgs. of Biotin for one week, cut their fasting glucose by 50%. A type 2 diabetes study showed similar results.

Steps To Control Diabetes

1. Weight control will be your number one objective. When you are overweight your body can not make and control insulin. Insulin is used to control the amount of glucose in your blood. Check with your doctor for your ideal weight.

2. Exercise is also necessary. Your exercise routine does not have to be a grueling workout with weights. 30 to 40 minute brisk walks taken daily will be a great start.

3. Eat healthy meals. Fresh fruits and vegetables should take the place of potato chips and deep fried foods. Your doctor may have some sample diet plans to get you started.

4. Test regularly. By testing your blood glucose levels daily you will be more aware of how certain foods and activities affect your diabetes.

Diabetes cure by islet transplantation (Edmonton Protocol )

In pancreatic islet transplantation, cells are taken from a donor pancreas and transferred into another person. Once implanted, the new islets begin to make and release insulin. Researchers hope that islet transplantation will help people with type 1 diabetes live without daily injections of insulin.

Benefits and Risks of Islet Transplantation

Immunosuppressive or anti-rejection drugs are needed to keep the transplanted islets functioning. Researchers do not fully know what long-term effects these drugs may have. Also, although the early results of the Edmonton Protocol are very encouraging, more research is needed to answer questions about how long the islets will survive and how often the transplantation procedure will be successful.
