Breakthrough Diabetes Treatment

Type-2-diabetes is caused by insulin resistance one of the many hormones in the body.  When cells in the body do not respond properly to the insulin produced by the pancreas, defects begin to happen. The pancreas works too hard to meet the demand for more and more insulin over time; however, it can’t keep up with demand as eventually blood sugar levels rise leading to prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. This excess of glucose causes health issues like heart disease, vision loss and kidney damage if left untreated.

People with diabetes or who are at risk of developing diabetes based on a family history of diabetes  can take proactive steps to reduce their cancer risks. Diabetes management is key in avoiding hyperglycemia and protecting one’s DNA from harm –  preventing high blood sugar through diet and exercise can lead to improved health outcomes. Supporting health through 

The Diabetes Cancer Connection

The connection between diabetes and cancer has confounded researchers for years – until now. Recent findings have uncovered a link between hyperglycemia, or high levels of glucose in the blood, and an increased risk to developing cancer among diabetics. Analysis suggests that DNA damage is more prominent when sugar levels are higher than normal while repair mechanisms can be impaired due to prolonged periods of elevating sugars in the bloodstream.   Diabetes has been linked to liver, pancreas, uterus, colon, breast, and bladder cancer.

 

Other Health Conditions and Diabetes

Along with cancer susceptibility for individuals with uncontrolled blood sugar other health conditions are linked to diabetes highlighting how crucial it is to maintain healthy glucose control, regulate one’s glycemic load and manage weight over time. 

Polycystic Ovarian syndrome, also known as PCOS is a disorder characterized by insulin resistance, elevated androgen levels, and symptoms such as irregular periods, acne breakouts, scalp thinning hair or excess body/facial hair growth. It can also increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in women.

Alternative Diabetes Treatment

While there is currently no cure for diabetes, alpha-lipoic acid may offer a ray of hope. This naturopathic treatment has been shown to help manage the symptoms associated with vascular disease and improve glucose metabolism – providing those living with diabetes an effective way to gain control over their well-being.

Neuropathy, a series complication of diabetes which results in irreversible damage to nerves and painful symptoms like numbness or burning sensations can be successfully managed with alpha-lipoic acid (ALA). This nutrient is present in dietary sources such as liver, spinach, red meat or broccoli. Not only does it lessen the intensity of neuropathic pain but also helps improve glucose metabolism for managing vascular symptoms associated with diabetic complications. With these benefits from ALA’s intake, trying out this antioxidant could be beneficial if you are dealing with nerve related issues due to diabetes.

People living with type 2 diabetes face an ongoing battle to maintain normal blood glucose levels. When insulin is at inadequate levels, or not taken up by the body effectively, hyperglycemia can arise – leading to dangerously high concentrations of sugar in the bloodstream. On other occasions when patients are fasting for long periods, taking too much medication or are exerting themselves beyond their capability, there is a risk that hypoglycemia may take hold as they become prone to very low glucose levels.

Those with type 2 diabetes suffer from low NAD+ concentrations in their cells and tissues, which has been shown to directly result from the oxidation of both glucose and free fatty acids within their bloodstreams. This biochemical irregularity significantly contributes to a lack of energy among those affected by this disease  As NAD+ is an integral component for normal metabolic functioning, its deranged regulation further exacerbates concerns about related cellular functions in individuals coping with type 2 diabetes .

 

Low NAD+ concentrations are a common issue among individuals with type- 2-diabetes and can be attributed to many associated symptoms, such as fatigue, impaired healing processes, and excessive cellular damage. Though much more research is needed before definitive conclusions on the efficacy of NAD+ supplementation in humans suffering from this condition can be drawn conclusively, NAD+ may offer support for relieving certain diabetic effects. But ultimately a Sunridge physician will design a specific treatment plant based on the patient’s current condition and health goals.
