Diabetes – A Silent yet Deadly Disease
By: Kyle Debolt
Diabetes is one of the top causes of death in the world, an estimate of 60% of the population.
Some people already knew about this disease thus they have their maintenance of insulin and
daily medications, the bad news is some people are unaware that they already have diabetes
therefore they have no maintenance and they have no physician to guide them in combating this
disease. One of the worst forms of diabetes is the one that affects our nerves and the common
term is diabetic neuropathy.
Diabetic neuropathy is the damage to the nerves due to prolonged diabetes. It is sadly an
incurable state because no medical technology had ever succeeded in a nerve surgery that is the
cause of diabetes. All we can do is prevent blood glucose from poisoning our system. There are
many known complications of diabetes mellitus, the one that is troublesome is the diabetes that
affects the nerves. Patients suffering from diabetes experiences constant numbness, dehydration
and poor vision.
There is no claimed medical achievement in the cure of diabetic neuropathy all a person can do
is to balance the blood glucose in the body. Prescribed diet and exercise should be strictly
observed along with a constant injection of insulin and daily medication. This is a very painful
and tiring set-up but if a diabetic patient wants to live, he has no choice but to follow his daily
regimen to prolong his life.
A patient suffering from diabetes is forbidden to smoke and drink, any chemical intake will
greatly affect the health that may sometimes lead to stroke, coma and the worst death. There are
many restrictions when you are suffering from diabetes mellitus, it will control your lifestyle
thus making you weaker than you ever be.
There are many treatments for diabetes that require constant medications and injections, this is a
very expensive treatment method that should be planned because once the treatment stops. The
patient will slowly die of the complications that is brought about by diabetes. There are also
diabetic natural treatments that rely on natural medication to strengthen and prevent further
complications. This is very cheap and very effective form of medication that can greatly affect
the health of diabetic patients.
