Additional Diabetes Information:
Diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which sugars and starchy foods are not properly consumed in the blood and has traditional remedies for its management. But many repose their trust in change or contrasting remedies for better results.
Many patients with diabetes develop numbness, tingling, pain, or weakness in their hands or feet, a condition called diabetic neuropathy which refers to symptoms and signs of neuropathy, or nerve damage, as a result of diabetes. There are many other reasons for nerves to be damaged or harmed. An important clue that often distinguishes this condiiton from other forms of neuropathy is that the nerve damage is symmetrical. This means the nerve damage is similar on both sides, for instance, both feet. If the nerve of only one side of the foot or arm is damaged, then the neuropathy is likely to be from another source, such as a nerve entrapment.
In all forms of diabetes, the body's ability to convert food into energy is impaired. After a meal, the body breaks down most food into glucose (a kind of sugar), the main source of fuel for cells. In people with diabetes, the body does not make enough insulin-a hormone that helps glucose enter cells-or the cells do not respond to insulin properly. Often, both insulin production and insulin action are impaired. Without treatment, glucose builds up in the blood instead of moving into the cells, where it can be converted into energy. Over time, the high blood glucose levels caused by diabetes can damage many parts of the body, including the heart and blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, nerves, feet, and skin. Such complications can be prevented or delayed by controlling blood glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.
While good control of blood sugar levels is known to lower the risk, new research suggests that there are other measures diabetes patients can take. In particular, by maintaining a healthy weight, quitting smoking, and receiving treatment for high blood pressure, those with diabetes may reduce the risk of further deterioration and perhaps reversal with the use of natural remedies.
Complementary remedies is used together with popular remedies for treatment. On the other hand, change remedies is used instead of popular remedies for treatment.
In cases of people with diabetes, it becomes compulsory to keep the doctor in picture of the type of treatment one desires to use along with popular remedies. Side results of the change / related remedies can then be avoided.
Some forms of alternate/complimentary remedies recommended for diabetes people include:
Taken Imagery: This is a technique that helps to rest the persona. Here relaxing pictures are used to make one aware of discomfort, and bring out the capability of our body to deal with it.
Acupuncture: This includes placing tiny needles at certain points in our body to get our body to launch natural pain relievers to decrease the discomfort.
Magnesium: This is a nutrient which handles sugars amounts in our body. It is seen that diabetes people have 'abnormal' amounts of the nutrient mineral magnesium. This could suggest that by adding to the nutrient mineral magnesium one can management diabetes also.
Ginseng: American Ginseng is believed to have the capability to reduce sugar amounts levels. Ginseng is available in many versions and skills. It has not been founded as to what strength and amount would have healing results. Hence this has not been founded as cure for diabetes.
