New Diabetes Treatments More Effective and Safer

 

According to the American Diabetes Association, right now about 26
million people in the US have diabetes--that's about 1 in 12 of us.

It is estimated that by the year 2050, as many as 1 in 3 people could have it!

Things don't look any rosier around the rest of the world either. About 371 million people worldwide have diabetes, and experts expect that by 2030, 552 million people will have the disease.

So diabetes is a huge cash cow for Big Pharma now and it will do nothing but get bigger.

But you don't have to worry about diabetes or empty your pockets for drugs if you have it now.  Because there are cheaper, more effective and safer ways to prevent and treat diabetes.

Let's take a look at the basics of diabetes and why it does what it does to you, as well as explore an exciting new treatment...

A normal body vs. diabetes

In a healthy functioning body, the level of sugar (glucose) in your blood and your cells is maintained by a very intricate process.

When food is eaten and broken down, glucose (your main source of fuel) enters the bloodstream. As soon as that happens, that signals your pancreas to secrete the hormone insulin, which tells your body's cells to absorb and use the glucose for energy.

As a result, your body gets the fuel it needs and the level of sugar in your blood is maintained and regulated.

But when something goes awry with this very important process and glucose accumulates in your bloodstream, you end up with diabetes.
 

2 roads leading to the same destination

There are two types of diabetes and although the net result (excess blood glucose) is the same, they stem from different causes:

Type 1- "Way too little"

Type 1 diabetes is a condition where your pancreas either can't make insulin at all or it can't produce the quantities needed to maintain a normal blood glucose level.

It usually appears in childhood with the peak age being 14, but can also appear in adults if the pancreas is damaged due to injury or disease.

Type 2- "Stubborn cells"

This is the most common (and the VERY preventable) form of diabetes. 90% of diabetics are Type 2 versus only 10% being Type 1.

Type 2 diabetes occurs when your body produces insulin but your cells don't respond like they should--they "ignore" the insulin and won't absorb the glucose.

As a result, your pancreas must produce MORE insulin to "force" the glucose to enter the cells.

Eventually the pancreas may not be able to keep up with the growing insulin demand. When this happens, excess glucose builds up in your bloodstream, and you are looking at Type 2 diabetes.
 

Far and wide

Since diabetes is characterized by excess glucose in your bloodstream, and since your bloodstream happens to go ALL OVER your body, the wrath of diabetes can reach far and wide.

Three of the most deadly effects are:

1- Heart and blood vessel disease

The excess glucose in your blood creates damage and inflammation in your blood vessels as it flows through your body, as well as puts a strain on your heart.

As a result, diabetes dramatically increases your risk of coronary artery disease, heart attack, stroke, atherosclerosis (narrowing of arteries) and high blood pressure.

According to the American Heart Association, the risk of stroke is 2 to 4 times higher for people with diabetes, and the death rate from heart disease is also 2 to 4 times higher for diabetics.

In addition, diabetes can also damage the blood vessels in the retina of your eyes, potentially leading to blindness. Diabetes also increases the risk of other serious eye diseases like cataracts and glaucoma.
 

2- Kidney damage (nephropathy)

Your kidneys are responsible for filtering toxins out of your blood and dumping them into your urine. About a liter of blood flows through them every single MINUTE.

When you have a lot of excess glucose in your blood, it can damage this delicate filtering system in your kidneys.

If the damage becomes severe enough it can lead to kidney failure or irreversible end-stage renal disease--meaning dialysis or a kidney transplant is in your future.
 

3- Nerve damage (neuropathy)

The excess glucose in your blood can also injure the walls of the tiny blood vessels (capillaries) that feed your nerves, especially in your legs.

This can cause tingling, numbness, burning or excruciating pain that usually begins at the tips of the toes or fingers and gradually spreads upward. This is called diabetic neuropathy, and if it's left unchecked, eventually you can lose all sense of feeling in the affected limbs.

In addition, nerve damage and poor blood flow to your feet can lead to major complications, even if it starts out as something minor.

For example, simple cuts and blisters can become serious infections and eventually gangrene. And severe damage might require toe, foot or even leg amputation.

Plus damage to the nerves that control digestion can cause GI problems like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation.
 

Fight back...and win!

The bright ray of hope in the dark shadow of diabetes is that there is a whole LOT of things you can do to either help prevent diabetes, or if you've got it, to keep it in check and help minimize its damaging wrath.

And the best part is they are all safe, natural and easy on your pocketbook.

Here are the biggest bangs for your buck in the world of fighting diabetes:

1- Eat for nourishment and sound digestion

Properly nourishing your body with real foods is always a good idea, but when you're looking at diabetes, it's essential!

First of all, real foods such as legumes, fatty fish, onions, tomatoes and whole grains have been shown to be very helpful in preventing and controlling diabetes.

Plus having sound digestion means better elimination of acid wastes and a healthier pH. This is especially important to diabetics, since your pancreas is VERY sensitive to pH. Even a slight dip into the acid range can affect your pancreatic function.

Plus, having fewer acid wastes in your blood makes your kidneys' job easier too...which is good news if they are already dealing with stress from excess glucose.

The Great Taste No Pain system guides you all the way in this crucial step.

To begin, the GTNP recipe book is loaded with easy, delicious dishes featuring nourishing real foods, including the diabetes-fighting foods I mentioned above.

Plus, the Great Taste No Pain manuals show you how to put together meals that not only taste spectacular but are easily digested!

Not only will that help keep ALL of your organs healthier, but you'll likely experience fewer digestive problems (like gas, bloating and constipation) as a result!
 

2- Supplement with Omega-3 EFAs as needed

Omega-3 EFAs provide crucial support to your metabolism including maintaining proper insulin levels.

Problem is, our typical diets are heavy in processed foods, meat from grain-fed animals and vegetable oils--all of which are high in Omega-6 fatty acids but are severely lacking the important Omega-3 EFAs.

Eating fatty fish like I mentioned above can help, but for many that's not enough--especially if you've had a typical modern diet for a long time.

Plus, some people don't like fish to begin with!

That's when a high quality, Omega-3 fish oil formula like VitalMega-3 can help you satisfy this vital need.

Just 2 capsules a day gives you an impressive 2,000 mg of the purest, medical grade fish oil LOADED with EPA and DHA (the necessary Omega-3 fatty acids).
 

3- The new kid on the block--Vitamin B12

Here's some VERY exciting news for diabetes sufferers:

In a recent study, Vitamin B12 was shown to be even more effective than the drug nortriptyline in improving symptoms of diabetic neuropathy!

The study examined 100 diabetic patients split into 2 groups of 50 -- one group received nortriptyline and the other Vitamin B12. Neither group knew which treatment they were receiving.

After treatment, the pain score based on a visual analogue scale decreased 3.66 units in the Vitamin B12 group as compared to only 0.84 units in the nortriptyline group.

In addition, the numbness levels decreased 2.98 units with the B12 users versus only 1.06 units with those taking the drug. And tingling was decreased in the B12 group by 3.48 units as opposed to a mere 1.02 units with the nortriptyline group.

As exciting as this is, it's also easy to see why Vitamin B12 can help with diabetic neuropathy.

You see, B12 is vital in supporting your nervous system, and it helps to maintain the myelin sheath which coats and protects all your nerve cells.

Since diabetic neuropathy is a form of nerve inflammation, B12 with its "nerve-soothing" properties can actually help with symptom reduction.

Now before you rush to the store to get some B12 tablets or think that your multi-vitamin has you covered, here's what you must know:

Studies show that B12 absorption through your digestive tract (i.e.: when you swallow vitamin tablets or capsules) can be as low as less than half of 1%!

Meaning you barely get any at all.

But Hydroxaden 2.5 is the answer to the low absorption problem.

Hydroxaden 2.5 is a Vitamin B12 spray that you simply apply right under your tongue each day. The B12 is quickly and efficiently absorbed right into your bloodstream through the mucus membranes in your mouth.  So it bypasses the stomach and does not get destroyed by the digestive process.

(And by the way, if you're wondering, it tastes good too thanks to the yummy herbal extracts in the formula!)

Hydroxaden 2.5 gives you a daily dose of one of the best forms of Vitamin B12 in the world (hydroxocobalamin).

Hydroxocobalamin has been shown to raise B12 levels higher and faster than other forms of B12, and it lasts longer in your body too.
 

Diabetes is an ever-growing concern not only in the US, but all over the world.

But that doesn't mean that you are completely defenseless against it and must simply hope your number doesn't come up, or if you do have it, that you don't stand a chance against its health dangers.

When you take safe, natural measures to help your body from within, you are taking tremendous strides toward diabetes prevention and avoidance of its catastrophic health effects.

To your health,

Sherry Brescia
