Diabetes mellitus
 
Diabetes mellitus
 
Diabetes mellitus is a disorder in which blood sugar (glucose) levels are abnormally high because the body does not produce enough insulin to meet its needs.

Insulin, a hormone released from the pancreas, controls the amount of sugar in the blood. When people eat or drink, food is broken down into materials, including the simple sugar glucose that the body needs to function. Sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream and stimulates the pancreas to produce insulin. Insulin allows sugar to move from the blood into the cells. Once inside the cells, it is converted to energy, which is either used immediately or stored as fat or glycogen until it is needed.

If the body does not produce enough insulin to move the sugar into the cells, the resulting high levels of sugar in the blood and the inadequate amount of sugar in the cells together produce the symptoms and complications of diabetes.

There are 2 types of diabetes;
  • Type 1: formerly called insulin-dependent diabetes. In type 1 diabetes more than 90% of the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas are permanently destroyed. The pancreas, therefore, produces little or no insulin.
  • Type 2: formerly called non-insulin-dependent diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas continues to produce insulin, sometimes even at higher-than-normal levels. However, the body develops resistance to the effects of insulin, so there is not enough insulin to meet the body's needs.
Obesity is the chief risk factor for developing type 2diabetes, and 80 to 90% of people with this disorder are overweight or obese. Because obesity causes insulin resistance, obese people need very large amounts of insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels. When the blood sugar levels get very high, people may develop severe dehydration, which may lead to mental confusion, drowsiness, and seizures, a condition called nonketotic hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar coma.

Complication
People with diabetes may experience many serious, long-term complications. Some of these complications begin within months of the onset of diabetes, although most tend to develop after a few years. Most of the complications are progressive. The more strictly people with diabetes are able to control the levels of sugar in the blood; the less likely it is that these complications will develop or become worse.

Most complications are the result of problems with blood vessels. High sugar levels over a long time cause narrowing of both the small and large blood vessels. The narrowing reduces blood flow to many parts of the body, leading to problems. There are several causes of blood vessel narrowing. Complex sugar-based substances build up in the walls of small blood vessels, causing them to thicken and leak. Poor control of blood sugar levels also tends to cause the levels of fatty substances in the blood to rise, resulting in atherosclerosis.
  Over time, elevated levels of sugar in the blood and poor circulation can harm the heart, brain, legs, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and skin, resulting in angina, heart failure, strokes, leg cramps, poor vision, kidney failure, damage to nerves (neuropathy), and skin breakdown. Poor circulation to the skin can lead to ulcers and infections and causes wounds to heal slowly. People with diabetes are particularly likely to have ulcers and infections of the feet and legs; will say that-
  • Urination and thirst are increased, and people lose weight when they are not trying to.
  • Diabetes damages the nerves and causes problems with sensation.
  • Diabetes damages blood vessels and increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, and kidney failure.
Also, people with diabetes often develop bacterial and fungal infections, typically of the skin. When the levels of sugar in the blood are high, white blood cells cannot effectively fight infections. Any infection that develops tends to be more severe.

Treatment
Nowadays, diabetes treatment has a continuous development and diversification. The process or treatment is based on the medical field. For example, cconventional medicine involves diet management, appropriate amounts of exercise, education and drugs. Moreover, the purpose of diabetes treatment is to keep blood sugar levels within the normal range as much as possible and treatment of high blood pressure and cholesterol levels can prevent some of the complications of diabetes as well.

Long term of medication taking/insulin replacing for Diabetic patient will effect to their some internal organs function such as vascular system, kidney and liver. Therefore, for integrative medicine, we will focus on recovering of the effected organ call “Organopeptide Therapy or Cytoplasmic Therapy”.

The Organopeptide therapy is an organ therapy with cytoplasmatic preparations makes use of natural regulatory and metabolic substances with phylogenetic similarity to body components. Impaired regulatory processes are normalized by physiological means, providing causative support for the recovery process.

Toxins accumulating in human body are also one cause of damage organs which related with pathology of Diabetes, therefore toxin removing call “Chelation therapy” will also help to improvement of diabetes treatment process.

For best results & effectiveness of diabetes treatment could be expected, combination of Supplement Therapy with all above treatment; will make diabetic patient better quality of life.
