Can Type 1 & 2 Diabetes Be Cured?
We have often read that there is no cure for Diabetes. That’s correct. With out-of-date medication Diabetes can never be cured.
However, there is new Diabetes research out that has helped thousands of people slowly but very effectively reduces their blood sugar levels. Today’s top medical scientists and doctors have discovered new ways to treat and cure Diabetes. Read how this new diabetes breakthrough reveals the root cause for diabetes and how to trigger your body to produce more insulin to cure diabetes.
Origins of Diabetes
Diabetes mellitus is a disorder in which blood sugar (glucose) levels are abnormally high because the body does not produce enough insulin. The term Diabetes traces its origins to a Greek word meaning “passing through.” The term is graphically descriptive of the two common symptoms of diabetes: polydipsia (excessive thirst) and polyuria (excessive urine volume). Literally, therefore, diabetes is a condition where water is simply “passing through”.
There are actually two forms of diabetes, Diabetes Mellitus and Diabetes Insipidus. Mellitus is derived from the Greek word for honey or sweet. Insipidus is a Latin word that means “without flavor.” Very simply then, the difference between the two forms is that Diabetes Mellitus produces a sweet-tasting urine, while Diabetes Insipidus produces a urine without flavor. The reasons for the excessive urination (and hence, the excessive thirst) are different in the two diseases.
In Diabetes Insipidus, excessive urination results from the insufficient secretion of antidiuretic hormone (ADH). With the lack of ADH, urine volume increases because the kidneys are less able to reabsorb water. Thus the lack of ADH secretion is the cause of diabetes insipidus. It is a relatively rare disease that does not affect blood sugar levels.
Diabetes Mellitus is a metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycemia (or elevated levels of blood glucose), which results directly from lack of secretion of insulin or insulin effect, or both. With the lack of insulin (or inhibition of its effect), volume of blood sugar in urine increases because the body becomes less efficient in metabolizing carbohydrates. The word diabetes when used alone usually refers to diabetes mellitus. Doctors often use the full name diabetes mellitus, rather than diabetes alone, to distinguish this disorder from diabetes insipidus.
Insulin is essential for carbohydrate metabolism. As the food you eat passes through the digestive system, it is broken down further and further into its simplest components. Glucose, a simple sugar, is one of the final products from breaking down carbohydrates. Your body, every cell in it, needs glucose mainly for fuel; your cells burn glucose to get the energy to perform their tasks. 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.
