Sep 5, 2008
Diabetic people are all around, do you know or have a relative or parent suffering from diabetes? then this article is intended to analyze some diagnostic studies recently released and some advise on medical treatments, hopefully those suffering from diabetes, maybe you included will get a better understanding of the points listed above.

If you are a person dealing with diabetes, then you know that testing your blood glucose levels is very important, while some diabetics need to test them 3 times per day, another ones need to test their blood glucose levels even up to 10 times per day. While, high blood sugar levels does not mean necessarily that a person suffer from diabetes, researches has pointed out that there is a close relation, meaning that it is certainly a call for further testing.

There is no reason for diabetics avoid controlling their glucose levels, even if you do not have any kind of social security you can get a free glucose meter, by using internet you can research and get the glucometer that best suit your needs.

Firstly, diagnostic studies are all about testing the levels of glucose in your blood, for instance, if two different blood glucose tests show glucose levels over 140 mg/dI - both tests done after eight hours of fasting - then, additional tests are required, one after drinking sugar water, other after fasting. However, if after these 2 new tests you get similar results, then a diabetes diagnosis is established.

Secondly, if you are a diabetic you should know that there is no cure for diabetes type 1 neither type 2. Consequently, there is no medical treatment in order to cure diabetes, but there are medical procedures in order to control high blood sugar levels and get them lowered.

While people that suffer diabetes type I can control it by regular insulin injections and a special diet and exercise regimen, those suffering type II diabetes could control their glucose levels with just diet and exercise.

Last but not least, there are several alternative medicine treatments that might deserve diabetic people giving one of them a try. For instance, yoga, reiki and special massages.

To sum up, the main point for diabetics is how to lower high blood sugar levels, some patients might need the use of drugs in order to increase insulin production, some drugs could be chlorpropamide, glipizide, glyburide, tolbutamide, and tolazamide. Ask your doctor for specialized advise.
