Diabetes - There's Hope of Freedom from this "Silent Killer"?

Type 1 Diabetes | Type 2 Diabetes | Gestational Diabetes | Secondary Diabetes

What are the different types of diabetes?

There are two major types of diabetes, called Type 1 and Type 2.


Type 1 diabetes was also called insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), or juvenile onset diabetes mellitus.

In Type 1 diabetes, the pancreas undergoes an auto-immune attack by the body itself, and is rendered incapable of making insulin. Abnormal antibodies have been found in the majority of patients with type 1 diabetes.

Antibodies are proteins in the blood that are part of the body's immune system.

The patient with Type 1 diabetes must rely on insulin medication for survival. In auto-immune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes, the immune system mistakenly manufactures antibodies and inflammatory cells that are directed against and cause damage to patients' own body tissues.

In persons with type 1 diabetes, the beta cells of the pancreas, which are responsible for insulin production, are attacked by the misdirected immune system. It is believed that the tendency to develop abnormal antibodies in type 1 diabetes is, in part, genetically inherited, though the details are not fully understood.

Exposure to certain viral infections (mumps and Coxsackie viruses) or other environmental toxins may serve to trigger abnormal antibody responses that cause damage to the pancreas cells where insulin is made. Some of the antibodies seen in type 1 diabetes include anti-islet cell antibodies, anti-insulin antibodies and anti-glutamic decarboxylase antibodies. These antibodies can be measured in the majority of patients, and may help determine which individuals are at risk for developing type 1 diabetes.

At present, the American Diabetes Association does not recommend general screening of the population for Type 1 diabetes, though screening of high risk individuals, such as those with a first degree relative (sibling or parent) with Type 1 diabetes should be encouraged.

Type 1 diabetes tends to occur in young, lean individuals, usually before 30 years of age, however, older patients do present with this form of diabetes on occasion. This subgroup is referred to as latent auto-immune diabetes in adults (LADA).

LADA is a slow, progressive form of Type 1 diabetes. Of all the patients with diabetes, only approximately 10% of the patients have Type 1 diabetes and the remaining 90% have Type 2 diabetes.



What are the symptoms of diabetes?

The early symptoms of untreated diabetes are related to elevated blood sugar levels, and loss of glucose in the urine. High amounts of glucose in the urine can cause increased urine output and lead to dehydration. Dehydration causes increased thirst and water consumption.

The inability of insulin to perform normally has effects on protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism. Insulin is an anabolic hormone, that is, one that encourages storage of fat and protein.

A relative or absolute insulin deficiency eventually leads to weight loss despite an increase in appetite.

Some untreated diabetes patients also complain of fatigue, nausea and vomiting. Patients with diabetes are prone to developing infections of the bladder, skin, and vaginal areas.

Fluctuations in blood glucose levels can lead to blurred vision. Extremely elevated glucose levels can lead to lethargy and coma.

How is diabetes diagnosed?

The fasting blood glucose (sugar) test is the preferred way to diagnose diabetes. It is easy to perform and convenient. After the person has fasted overnight (at least 8 hours), a single sample of blood is drawn and sent to the laboratory for analysis. This can also be done accurately in a doctor's office using a glucose meter. Normal fasting plasma glucose levels are less than 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl).

Fasting plasma glucose levels of more than 126 mg/dl on two or more tests on different days indicate diabetes.

A random blood glucose test can also be used to diagnose diabetes. A blood glucose level of 200 mg/dl or higher indicates diabetes.


When fasting blood glucose stays above 100mg/dl, but in the range of 100-126mg/dl, this is known as impaired fasting glucose (IFG). While patients with IFG do not have the diagnosis of diabetes, this condition carries with it its own risks and concerns, and is addressed elsewhere.

FLEXOPRIN - A Safe And Natural Way to Relieve Arthritis

FLEXOPRIN is designed to help with, not only osteo-arthritis, but also rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and other autoimmune-related conditions, by inhibiting the enzyme cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) to reduce inflammation and decrease overactive immune function.

To eliminate the destruction of the joint and rebuild the cartilage producing cells, thereby restoring flexibility and mobility of bone joints.

It also has anti-spasmodic and anti-cancer properties.

FLEXOPRIN likewise helps destroy free radicals.

SUGGESTED USE:

1 to 2 vegicap/s before bedtime or during dinner. For better results, leave a 3-4 interval between FLEXOPRIN and prescribed medication.

INGREDIENTS:

Chamomile Flower B.E.E. -- contains volatile oils, including alpha-bisabolol, alpha-bisabolol oxides A & B and matricin (usually converted to chamazulene). Other active constituents include flavonoids apigenin, luteolin and quercetin. These active ingredients contribute to chamomile's anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and smooth muscle relaxing action. It also works as a powerful antioxidant to protect joints from oxidative damage.

MSM (Methylsulfonyl Methane) -- Numerous studies have shown that sulfur levels in arthritic joints are lower than in healthy joints. MSM may help by delivering needed sulfur to the afflicted areas. It may exert an anti-inflammatory, analgesic effect similar to that of aspirin. It may also help to maintain or repair cartilage, which is the gel-like substance that cushions joints and that is a key ingredient of connective tissue.

Lemon Fruit B.E.E. and Vitamin C -- are powerful free radical destroyers that also aid in pain relief because of their anti-inflammatory effect.

Astragalus Root B.E.E. -- contains flavonoids, polysaccharides, triterpene glycosides and abundant amino acid and trace minerals that may benefit immune function acting as a double-direction regulator for immune system. It may help with rheumatoid arthritis, and some other autoimmune diseases, such as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), by decreasing overactive immune function.

Ginger Root B.E.E. -- contains volatile oils and aromatic constituents.

Echinacea Root B.E.E. -- contains polyacetylenes, caffeic acid derivatives and polysaccharides that fight inflammation and have benefits for the immune system.

KLEER HEAD Alleviates Migraine And Other Types of Headaches

KLEERHEAD has anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, and muscle relaxing properties.  It is formulated to help alleviate migraine and other types of headaches in a number of ways including:
  1. thinning the blood, which reduces pain and allows beneficial blood flow;
  2. relaxing muscles and soothing tension;
  3. enhancing cerebral circulation and increasing the cerebral flow of oxygen;
  4. modulating hormone balance; and
  5. reducing anxiety and stress, and promoting sound sleep. 

INGREDIENTS:

Chamomile Flower B.E.E. (bio-enhanced extraction) -- contains oils, flavonoids, opigenin, luteolin and quercetin that contribute to anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and muscle relaxing actions that help reduce headaches and promote restful sleep.

Red Clover Flower B.E.E. -- chronic headache is more prevalent in women than in men.  This fact has been linked to the decline in estradiol (a female hormone).  Red Clover B.E.E. contains high percentages of isoflavones, which have mild estrogen-like properties that may modulate and balance sexual steroids and help to alleviate nervousness and stress-related symptoms, thereby helping to reduce headaches, especially migraine and tension-type headaches.  In addition, it may also thin the blood, thus allowing for beneficial blood flow.

Ginger Root B.E.E. -- contains volatile oils and aromatic constituents that increase bile secretion and inhibit nausea and vomiting, thus, improving appetite and digestion.  It also helps lower cholesterol and reduces the formation of gallstones.

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) -- is an important nutrient in the prevention of headache.  For many migraine sufferers, taking riboflavin may help decrease the frequency and shorten the duration of migraine headaches.

Magnesium and Calcium -- Calcium helps with stress, nervous tension, anxiety and fatigue.  Magnesium helps prevent migraine headaches and is thought to work like the calcium channel blocking agent in preventing vascular changes.  Magnesium and calcium work together and may promote each other and provide a more restful sleep.

SUGGESTED USE:

1 to 3 tablet/s (when necessary)
