Diabetes

diabetes

Some people with diabetes use complementary or alternative therapies to treat diabetes. Although some of these therapies may be effective, others can be ineffective or even harmful. Patients who use complementary and alternative medicine need to let their health care providers know what they are doing.

Some complementary and alternative medicine therapies are discussed below. For more information, talk with your health care provider.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a procedure in which a practitioner inserts needles into designated points on the skin. Some scientists believe that acupuncture triggers the release of the body’s natural painkillers. Acupuncture has been shown to offer relief from chronic pain. Acupuncture is sometimes used by people with neuropathy, the painful nerve damage of diabetes.

Biofeedback
Biofeedback is a technique that helps a person become more aware of and learn to deal with the body’s response to pain. This alternative therapy emphasizes relaxation and stress-reduction techniques.


Guided imagery is a relaxation technique that some professionals who use biofeedback do. With guided imagery, a person thinks of peaceful mental images, such as ocean waves. A person may also include the images of controlling or curing a chronic disease, such as diabetes. People using this technique believe their condition can be eased with these positive images.

Chromium
The benefit of added chromium for diabetes has been studied and debated for several years. Several studies report that chromium supplementation may improve diabetes control. Chromium is needed to make glucose tolerance factor, which helps insulin improve its action. Because of insufficient information on the use of chromium to treat diabetes, no recommendations for supplementation yet exist.

Ginseng
Several types of plants are referred to as ginseng but most studies of ginseng and diabetes have used American ginseng. Those studies have shown some glucose-lowering effects in fasting and post-prandial (after meal) blood glucose levels as well as in A1C levels (average blood glucose levels over a 3-month period).

However, larger and more long-term studies are needed before general recommendations for use of ginseng can be made. Researchers also have determined that the amount of glucose-lowering compound in ginseng plants varies widely.

Magnesium
Although the relationship between magnesium and diabetes has been studied for decades, it is not yet fully understood. Studies suggest that a deficiency in magnesium may worsen blood glucose control in type 2 diabetes. Scientists believe that a deficiency of magnesium interrupts insulin secretion in the pancreas and increases insulin resistance in the body’s tissues.

Evidence suggests that a deficiency of magnesium may contribute to certain diabetes complications. A recent analysis showed that people with higher dietary intakes of magnesium (through consumption of whole grains, nuts, and green leafy vegetables) had a decreased risk of type 2 diabetes.

Vanadium
Vanadium is a compound found in tiny amounts in plants and animals. Early studies showed that vanadium normalized blood glucose levels in animals with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. A recent study found that when people with diabetes were given vanadium, they developed a modest increase in insulin sensitivity and were able to decrease their insulin requirements.

Currently researchers want to understand how vanadium works in the body, discover potential side effects, and establish safe dosages.

    Kelp
    Cinnamon

  2. Unknown Doctor Says:

    Research has shown that comsuming nuts like almonds, walnuts, and pecans is a good way to prevent and manage diabetes. Just make sure that they are plain and not salted or coated in sugar. Smoked nuts work well, also.

  3. Nancy Sandoval Says:

    You can also eat cactus leaves, grilled, boiled, juiced, how ever you want to use it. It is delicious, and it really works.

  4. Victor Frias Says:

    Organic Apple Cider Vinegar!—works great to help lower and maintain high sugar levels. It must be ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGAR with MOTHERS listed on the label to be a true organic apple cider vinegar. I have only been able to find it at HEALTH FOOD STORES. All you have to do is take two table spoons after every meal. It is a little bitter, so i mix it in a large glass with cranberry juice and water to help with the taste. It really works great, but make sure it is a true organic apple cider vinegar or you will not get the same results.

  5. mandoza, ellen Says:

    Pro-pancrease, Oraganic apple cider, Alpha Lipoic Acid and cinnamon are all need to satay healthy.

  6. Dawn Gagnon Says:

    Low carb dieting is a great way to keep diabetes in check, also there are natural starch neutralizers out there made of white beans that have some promise.

  7. darlene Says:

    I love several formulas and pieces of equipment that you can learn about at http://www.youtube.com/user/n2bettersolutions What I love about this is NO SIDE EFFECTS. It is amazing stuff.

  9. erich Says:

    Substances may react different in different people, I (105kg) observed when taking TEQUILLA (3 to 5 small shots) with some salt & lemon & some excercise LATE at night gives me a PLEASANT LOW blood sugar reading the following day.
    It works for me ONLY with tequilla and NOT with any other alcohol.

    Did anyone else experience the same ?

  10. cocoandrico Says:

    A number of promising studies have suggested that Aloe Vera gel may be useful in managing diabetes naturally. Compounds in Aloe are thought to stimulate the production of insulin and enable the body to more process glucose more efficiently. One to three teaspoons of fresh Aloe gel may be taken daily to help regulate blood sugar levels. For more info check out: http://www.aloeplant.info/diabetes-and-aloe/

    There are two forms of diabetes–Type I and Type II. Type II is the most discussed. In the beginning it is simply the body’s inability to get sugar out of the blood. Type II diabetes stems from over consumption of sugar–And Not Just Sugar, but “Carbohydrates.” High fructose corn syrup is also a significant contributor to type II diabetes and several other diseases, including gout and hypertension. The body requires about one teaspoon of glucose to operate. Any excess is stored in the cell as fat. Insulin is the delivery system for sugar. It unlocks, or opens, the cell to deliver glucose that is used by the cell in the mitochondria to produce energy. Over time high blood sugar levels cause the body to reduce the number of insulin receptor sites by “locking out” the delivery of glucose to the cell. The sugar has nowhere to go so it remains in the blood.This is called insulin resistance. Prolonged insulin resistance causes Type II diabetes.
    The body will sense high blood sugar levels and through urination will help eliminate some of this sugar. Frequent urination is a sign of diabetes.
    Body typing is one way of determining if this is a problem. We wear our insulin-meter around our waist. Insulin resistance and type II diabetes is connected to body fat at the waist line.
    Type I diabetes, or insulin dependent diabetes is another story.This is a situation where the pancreas does not produce enough insulin. Once again, insulin is the delivery system for glucose. If insulin production is low, blood insulin levels are also low. This means glucose is not being delivered to the cell to produce energy,which can manifest as fatigue. Cells begin to starve and begin a process called gluconeogenesis. This is the body’s way of sustaining life. I takes protein from muscle tissue and converts it to glucose, causing a decrease in muscle mass and increased hunger. This results in rapid weight loss. This condition is potentially very dangerous and I would suggest that one seek conventional treatment if you feel uncomfortable with natural substances.
    There are several natural substances that can help with both types of diabetes. Obviously type II diabetes is easier to manage. Managing both types is improved significantly by changing your diet and eliminating as many sugar-foods and ‘carbohydrates’ from your diet as possible. I would strongly recommend that this be done without fail.
    Chromium and Vanadium have been studied and these are commonly used for diabetes. Cinnamon is another. It contains an insulin-like substance called cinnulin that appears to be effective.Fenugreek, Glycemic acid, Konjac Mannnon, and Prickly pear cactus have shown to be effective. Another is a fat soluble form of vitamin B1 called Benfotiamine, which was discovered by the Japanese in the 1950s and was found to be useful in treating neuropathy. Many of these can be found in synergistic blends that are available at health food stores or on the net.
    I would advise buying blood sugar testing equipment and using it regularly. Because diabetes is tied to other degenerative diseases. It is highly suggested that you get this condition under control quickly.
    Conventional medicine says there is no cure for either type I or type II diabetes. However, there are reports of many medical doctors reporting numerous “Cures” because of scientific programs that have, and are,showing this is actually truth and not fiction. Type II diabetes is being cured and type I diabetes insulin use is going down.
    High carbohydrate consumption is related to insulin production which is proven to be the primary cause of arterial plaqueing and heart disease. Sugar is the primary biochemical responsible for high cholesterol levels, not fats. Why? Because insulin release is not stimulated by eating fats. Athrosclerosis can also be caused by arterial calcification caused by low levels of Vitamin K2. Lowered sugar levels reduce cholesterol levels and lower high blood pressure. Sugar is highly toxic and highly inflammatory. A very small amount of natural sugars are acceptable.
    Normal cholesterol panel levels a few years ago were 300. Now doctors say normal levels are 160. By redefining what “High” is, they now can say that they are right regardless of proof to the contrary. Now almost everybody has high cholesterol.Some doctors say cholesterol levels should be 100 or below. This is very dangerous.In fact, low cholesterol levels cause the body to go into “panic” mode and make cholesterol from “carbohydrates” that is dumped into the blood stream that can cause a heart attack. Low levels also cause suicide,impaired brain function, cellular abnormalities,cancer, lowered sexual function, massive stroke and are tied to Alzheimer’s disease and senile dementia.
    The real problem is “oxidized” Cholesterol. Specifically, LDL cholesterol. This is why is it thought to be bad. In its purest sense cholesterol is a natural antioxidant, manufactured by the body, that is flowing through your blood stream that seeks out oxidation damage and patches it up.If oxidation is the problem, what does this suggest that we need to do to combat oxidation? Antioxidants. Nutrient Deficiencies cause oxidation that causes inflammation. Also the inflammatory proteins C Reactive Protein and particularly, Homocysteine are the primary contributors to cardiovascular disease–Not Cholesterol. In fact, Homocysteine causes endothelial inflammation and bulges in arteries that shreds the artery or vein and causes the blood to become sticky. High cholesterol is a “symptom” of cardiovasclar disease, not the cause. There are also TWO different types of LDL cholesterol. One is pattern A, which offers no risk and pattern B that offers a little more risk because it is more dense. However, we are never told about this so if we have high levels of Pattern A and low levels of Pattern B we still have high cholesterol because the doctor never examines the specifics of the results. HDL, VLDL and triglycerides factor in as well.
    Stress is a major contributor to disease. Stress causes the production of adrenaline,that causes the stimulation of glucocordicoids, that causes the production of insulin, that suppresses the immune system.
    “Anything” that the body perceives to abnormal or foreign causes “stress” on the body.There is much more to be said. Any more questions?
