WONDER DRUG / HORMONE – INSULIN COMPLETES CENTURY IN JULY 2021 :
Just a Quick reminder on some basic known facts about diabetes :
We are aware of the 2 Types of Diabetes prevailing:.
Type 1 diabetes is an AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE. It occurs when the insulin-producing islet cells in the pancreas are completely destroyed or devoid of the cells, so the body can't produce any insulin. There’s no cure for type 1 diabetes. People with type 1 diabetes don’t produce insulin, so it must be regularly injected into the body.
Some people take injections into soft tissue, such as the stomach, arm, or buttocks, several times per day. Other people use insulin pumps. Insulin pumps supply a steady amount of insulin into the body through a small tube. Blood sugar testing is an essential part of managing type 1 diabetes, because levels can go up and down quickly.
We have come a long way form the manual jab to ‘do-it-yourself’ artificial pancreas systems (DIY APS) using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), insulin pumps and smartphone technology. , IF THE BLOOD GLUCOSE GOES UP, THE SYSTEM DELIVERS MORE INSULIN; IF THE GLUCOSE GOES DOWN, IT DELIVERS LESS.
Millions of diabetics worldwide use synthetic insulin to regulate their blood sugar levels
In type 2 diabetes, the pancreatic cells are still working. However, the body is resistant to insulin. The body still produces insulin, but it’s unable to use it effectively.
Researchers aren’t sure why some people become insulin resistant and others don’t, BUT SEVERAL LIFESTYLE FACTORS MAY CONTRIBUTE, including being inactive and carrying excess weight. Other genetic and environmental factors may also play a role. When you develop type 2 diabetes, your pancreas will try to compensate by producing more insulin. Because your body is unable to effectively use insulin, glucose will accumulate in your bloodstream.
TYPE 2 DIABETES CAN BE MANAGED AND EVEN REVERSED WITH DIET AND EXERCISE ALONE, but many people need extra support. If lifestyle changes aren’t enough, your DOCTOR MAY PRESCRIBE MEDICATIONS THAT HELP YOUR BODY USE INSULIN MORE EFFECTIVELY.
People with type 2 diabetes need to focus on healthy eating. Weight loss is often a part of type 2 diabetes treatment plans, so your doctor may recommend a low-calorie meal plan. This could mean reducing your consumption of animal fats and junk food.
THE NUMBER OF TYPES OF DIABETES GOING BEYOND 2 ? In 2008, researchers from Brown University, Dr Suzanne de la Monte and Dr Jack Wands, put forward a proposal that Alzheimer’s disease could be termed type 3 diabetes. The reasoning is based on the fact that insulin resistance within the brain was shown to be a feature of Alzheimer’s disease. While this has been proposed, major health organizations do not recognize Alzheimer’s disease as a type of diabetes within their classifications.
