Managing Diabetes Mellitus With Cell Therapy
Diabetes Mellitus – A Global Disease Today
Diabetes mellitus is considered a global disease with over 388 Million people afflicted with it worldwide. Diabetes is life-long and there is no known cure once you are diagnosed with it. Known to have caused more deaths in a year compared to breast cancer and AIDS combined. Diabetes would double the risk of having a heart attack.
Diabetes in actual fact is potentially preventable and a good diabetes management would greatly reduce the risks for diabetes complications. Almost all of its long-term consequences can be avoided, but would require lifestyle and medical intervention.
Not surprisingly, this disease affects psychologically as well. Studies showed a strong correlation between diabetes, decreased quality of life and depression. A healthy adjustment, realistic and positive outlook are the first step towards managing this disease.
Cell Therapy Holds Immense Possibility for Managing Diabetes
Encouraging research and new treatments are becoming more available with cell therapy being one of the most effective alternatives. Cell therapy generally helps balance the glucose/sugar level in the body while increasing the body’s immune system, hence improving the condition for a better quality of life.
Patients have experience dramatic improvements with cell therapy, however diabetics with a continued sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle would also reduce the results of the therapy over time. The cell therapy work best with a complementary healthy lifestyle.
What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes mellitus applies to a group of metabolism disorders that is characterised by the chronic elevation of glucose level in the blood. Predominantly one of the world’s top chronic diseases, one tends to assume that the taxonomy would be well defined. However, this is not the case. Definition of diabetes goes through a constant evolvement and updates as more clinical data becomes available. However, two common main forms of diabetes are classified as type 1 and type 2.
If you have diabetes, whatever type, it implies you have too much sugar in your blood, although the causes could differ. Numerous causes and factors influenced by both genetic and environment contributes to the development of diabetes mellitus.
This condition occurs when the physical body could not generate sufficient insulin for its own use, either due to weakened insulin secretion, ineffective insulin action, or both and thus elevating the sugar level in the body to a serious proportion.
Being overweight, inadequate nutrition from a poor diet and an inactive sedentary lifestyle contributes significantly to the development of Type 2 diabetes. Approximately 90% of the global diabetes cases are of Type 2.
The most common diabetes symptoms include frequent urination, intense thirst and hunger, weight or muscle loss, fatigue, slow healing of wounds and blurred vision among others. An early diagnose is crucial, as it tends to progressively worsen if left untreated, escalating to significantly higher risk of developing complications such as chronic infections, coronary disease, kidney disorders and nerve damage. Chronic high blood glucose is also a leading cause of renal failure, visual impairment and other types of tissue damage.
