Diabetes Mellitus and How to Control Diabetes


									<div class="KonaBody">
        <p>Diabetes mellitus results when the body doesn't produce enough
insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels or when cells in the body
don't respond appropriately to insulin. <br><br>People with type I
diabetes mellitus (insulin-dependent diabetes) produce little or no
insulin at all. In type II diabetes mellitus (non-insulin-dependent
diabetes), the pancreas continues to manufacture insulin, sometimes even
at higher than normal levels.<br><br>For more information please visit<br><br>All forms of diabetes have been
treatable since insulin became available in 1921, and type 2 diabetes may
be controlled with medications. <br><br>Both type 1 and 2 are chronic
conditions that usually cannot be cured. Pancreas transplants have been
tried with limited success in type 1 DM; gastric bypass surgery has been
successful in many with morbid obesity and type 2 DM.<br><br>Diabetes
mellitus affects approximately 6% of the US population and its occurrence
is increasing in incidence at an alarming rate.<br><br>Many of the 16
million Americans who have diabetes are unaware of its presence and even
more individuals lack sufficient education to deal with the lifestyle
adjustments that are required to manage or prevent this disease.
<br><br>Diabetes mellitus is a common cause of premature death or
disability and its progression results in accelerated aging of the body.
<br><br>More than 90% of all cases of diabetes mellitus are of the Type 2
form (maturity onset diabetes). The economic burden of diabetes mellitus,
together with some disenchantment about allopathic treatments for this
disorder, has led to a growing interest in potentially safer and gentler
management options that are presented by alternative medicine.
<br><br>The objective of this short article is to review non-allopathic
options for the potential management of Type 2 diabetes mellitus,
accepting that research in this area is emerging, but it is
incomplete.<br><br>Treatments for Diabetes<br><br>Greed and dishonest
science have promoted a lucrative worldwide epidemic of diabetes that
honesty and good science can quickly reverse by naturally restoring the
body's blood-sugar control mechanism. <br><br>Diabetics have been told
for decades they can consume sugary and sugar producing foods multiple
times daily as long as they take enough insulin to cover themselves.
There has been little to no recognition that high levels of insulin are
just as dangerous over the long haul as sugar is to the Diabetic.
<br><br>Repeat and prolonged exposure to high levels of insulin is
absolutely detrimental. Glucose-lowering drugs usually succeed in
lowering blood sugar levels, but may increase the death rate from heart
attacks.<br><br>Home Remedies for Diabetes Mellitus<br><br>One most
important thing to be remembered is that there is no definitely cure for
diabetes mellitus. This is a disease that lasts for life. However,
attempts can be made to keep the amount of blood sugar in check. If that
is done, then a person with diabetes mellitus can also lead an almost
normal healthy and long
mellitus.html<br><br>Another thing to note is that none of the remedies
given below can work by themselves in treating diabetes mellitus. No
treatment is possible without proper dietary control. The diet should be
certainly low in carbohydrates and fats, but it should also be nutritious
at the same time.<br><br>Read the following home remedies. They are good
at bringing the blood sugar level down. But most importantly, these
remedies are safe to try out for a diabetic patient, without any side-
effects.<br><br>The bitter melon (karela, Momordica charantia) is one of
the best home remedies for diabetes mellitus. For three months
continuously, prepare a dish of the bitter melon in ghee. Have this dish
daily. This will definitely help in bringing the blood sugar to a
manageable level.<br><br>Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum) is another
greatly beneficial remedy for controlling blood sugar. Every morning have
a cupful of the juice of the fenugreek leaves and then chew the hard
seeds of the herb. This will gradually reduce the blood sugar and will
help to bring the body back to normal. This is one of the good diabetes
mellitus home remedies.<br><br>Every morning have tomatoes, oranges and
jamuns (Indian plum, Syzygium cumini). The total amount of these three
should come to 300 grams per day. This will certainly bring the blood
sugar down if done diligently and on a regular basis.<br></p>         <!--
