Inventions New to Diabetes Treatments

Mar 5, 2008
The disease known as diabetes affects a majority of people in our world today. People within the 10 to 70 year age groups suffer from this disease. A decrease in the hormone known as insulin is the cause of diabetic disease. The pancreas of the body has certain cells which insulin is secreted by. When food is eaten it breaks into small particles called glucose, which is a sugar thereby giving the energy to the body. Glucose is helped by the insulin in moving into the body's cells. If the body does not secrete insulin, then it cannot move through the cells. This causes an increase in the content of sugar or the glucose and leads to diabetes disease.

There are several symptoms of the disease which include loss in weight, frequent urination, blurred vision, stress, irritation, Heart problems, Kidney failure etc. Diabetes is -also a genetic disorder but it is also caused by some factors like obesity, excess intake of sugar, increased cholesterol levels etc. Hypoglycemia and Hyperglycemia are the two conditions that arise due to Type-1 diabetes.

Weight loss, frequent and excessive urination, blurred vision, stress, irritation, heart problems, Kidney failure, are some of the symptoms of the disease. Some of the causes of diabetes are obesity, increased amount of sugar intake, excessive level of cholesterol, etc. It may also be caused due to hereditary factors. Type 1 diabetes may give invitation to Hypoglycemia and Hyperglycemia in the body. This is due to the fact that low level of glucose in the blood leads to hypoglycaemia while higher level of glucose in the blood leads to Hyperglycemia.

Diabetes management involves taking required medications, exercising regularly, following a diabetic friendly diet, controlling your stress levels; dialysis of the kidneys or for more advanced types, transplants may also be a form of necessary treatment. Maintaining a diet which is balanced well is very important in keeping glucose blood levels controlled. A diet which is balanced well includes nutritious, healthy foods that are also low in fats, cholesterols and sugars. Vegetables that are leafy and green are great choices and sources of nutrition. People who have Diabetes Type 1 take insulin as it is the best drug treatment for them. The disease can be controlled by exercising which increases sensitivity of the body to insulin, which then lets the levels of glucose become maintained. If the supra cited treatments are not effective then medications can be prescribed to take orally in diabetes.

Insulin replacement is included in diabetes treatments. Replacement insulin types include multiple dosages, mixed dosages, single dosages and mixed split dosages. Injections of insulin are also used by injecting right under the skins fat layers, this way it is then absorbed by the blood into the body. Pumps with insulin are available as multiple dosages units. Transplants of the pancreas, kidney and islets are other forms of treatment options available now.

Treatments by scientists are being developed to provide treatment to diabetics which are completely pain free and come from technology using the stem cells, its availability is only a couple of years away. Stem cells from human embryos are being used within mice to further develop this specific technology. The scientists contend that injections of insulin shots can be eliminated completely from diabetic treatment. In Australia over 1,30,000 people suffer with diabetes and have to use injections of insulin shots daily. The new technology developed using stem cells would become of great use to these and others which suffer from diabetes. For the time being, the technology is a few years in need of evolving.
