Diabetes is a serious medical condition that causes blood sugar levels to increase as the body is unable to properly use glucose as a fuel source for cells throughout the body. When this condition develops and blood sugar levels rise, dangerous symptoms may develop that may even put the patient’s life in danger. Diabetes UK reports that approximately 3.5 million individuals in the United Kingdom has been diagnosed with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, but the estimated prevalence of these diseases are expected to exceed four million. When a global population is taken into consideration, the World Health Organization reports that it is estimated that approximately 422 million individuals suffer from some type of diabetes. This accounts for approximately 8.5% of the global adult population. Furthermore, they report that the prevalence of these diseases seems to be more significant among low to middle income countries.
The Health Impacts Of Diabetes
Diabetes refers to a condition where either one of two scenarios is present. The body either cannot utilize the insulin that the pancreas produces efficiently or there is not an adequate supply of insulin being produced by the pancreas to properly utilize glucose in the body as a fuel source for cells. When blood glucose levels increase significantly, the condition is referred to as hyperglycemia, and causes severe damage to numerous systems of the human body over time. Blood vessels and nerves throughout the body often suffer the most significant level of damage. It is important to know that there are two different recognized types of diabetes, and each of these types works in a different way. Let’s discuss the two major types of diabetes:
- Type 1 Diabetes – Type 1 diabetes is also known as juvenile diabetes, insulin-dependent diabetes and childhood-onset diabetes. This type of diabetes causes an insulin deficiency. The specific cause of type 1 diabetes have not yet been discovered, but several risk factors have been identified. Patients who suffer from type 1 diabetes may experience symptoms like vision changes, weight loss, fatigue, polydipsia (excessive thirst), polyuria (excessive urination) and constantly feeling hungry.
- Type 2 Diabetes – Type 2 diabetes is also known as adult-onset diabetes or non-insulin-dependent diabetes. This type of diabetes occurs when the body is unable to effectively utilize insulin to process glucose in the body. This is the most common type of diabetes throughout the entire global population. Type 2 diabetes is often caused by a sedentary lifestyle and excessive amounts of bodyweight.
Type 1 and type 2 diabetes often causes similar symptoms, which is why it is sometimes difficult to effectively diagnose the particular type of diabetes a patient has. The problem, however, is that type 2 diabetes often causes noticeable symptoms only when complications have already started to develop.
In addition to type 1 and type 2 diabetes, other types of conditions that relate to diabetes have also been detected by medical experts. In pregnant women, a condition known as gestational diabetes, which causes high blood sugar levels, but not high enough to be diagnosed with diabetes, often develops. Two transitioning conditions, known as IFG (impaired fasting glycaemia) and IGT (impaired glucose tolerance) have also been identified. These two conditions are often present in a patient that is developing diabetes and it causes the risk of diabetes to increase significantly. Being diagnosed with any of these two transitioning conditions, however, does not necessarily mean a patient will definitely develop diabetes.
Prevention And Treatment Of Diabetes
The most effective method for treating diabetes is the prevention of the disease. Individuals should adopt a healthy lifestyle to reduce their risk of developing these diseases and, should a patient learn that they are at a high risk, they should adopt certain lifestyle changes that will help them avoid their insulin sensitivity from developing into diabetes. Should a patient already be diagnosed with a type of diabetes, then an effective treatment plan should be made available to the patient. In addition to the treatment plan, the patient should also make some lifestyle changes to maintain a low blood glucose level.
Physical activity and a balanced diet are often recommended to patients who have already developed type 2 diabetes. They are also advised to avoid foods that are high in sugar. In addition to these lifestyle adjustments, a patient should also obtain blood glucose control medication, which may include oral medication and insulin supplementation. Furthermore, it is important for diabetes patients to maintain a healthy blood pressure level and to properly care for their feet.
Recently, many patients with diabetes have been able to benefit from bioresonance therapy sessions. The therapy focuses on controlling the energetic flows within the body and works directly on the particular organs that are involved in diabetes – these include the pancreas and the liver. According to Bioresonance Center, the treatment for diabetes through bioresonance therapy has been tested thoroughly and officially approved. Two particular treatment variations are used in the treatment of diabetes with this technology, which includes a bio-energetic assessment, followed by metatherapy.
High blood glucose levels can lead to numerous symptoms in the human body that can damage internal tissue. Diabetes is a worldwide health concern that affects over 400 million people and the rate at which the disease is diagnosed is increasing. While several treatment options have been developed to effectively manage the symptoms of diabetes, bioresonance therapy poses as a newer treatment method that can target the organs that are involved in the development of these diseases.
