Diabetes new treatments are currently being researched all over the world. But currently there is no cure that has been accepted by the medical communities for either types of diabetes.
Type-1 diabetes happens when the Beta islet cells in the pancreas which normally product insulin are destroyed. Insulin metabolizes sugar in the blood system into energy that can be absorbed and used by the cells. People with Type-1 diabetes need to be on insulin for the rest of their lives. Type-2 diabetes happens when insulin receptors on each cell surface are for some reason resistant to insulin. Type 2-diabetes can be managed with medication and lifestyle changes and often with lifestyle changes alone.
Currently research is being conducted using controversial embryonic stem cells as well as stem cells taken from adults. But because of the ethical and political debate concerning embryonic stem cells this pathway to a cure is moving slowly. People who believe that life starts at conception strongly oppose embryonic stem cell research because the cells come from human embryos which are destroyed in the process. Embryonic stem cells have not matured into human cells and have the greatest potential to become any type of cells in the human body, including hair, skin, blood, as well as Beta islet cells.
Although the research using stem cells is in its infant stages many scientists believe that this research holds the most promise for success for diabetics to be able to stop taking insulin injection after their bodies start producing the hormone naturally.
There are several Amazon jungle root herbs being studies with reported abilities to lower blood sugar levels, normalize the frequency of urination, and eliminate glucose in the urine of diabetics. In Brazil, Pfaffia root has been used for years to treat the symptoms of diabetes. Pata-de-vaca is also widely used in Brazil for the treatment of diabetes.
In China and other parts of Asia there are many herbs being studied that help with blood glucose levels as well as some that relieve the effects of narrowing blood vessels which is a complication that occurs with diabetes.
Another natural substance that is being studied is cocoa. A study conducted in Germany showed cocoa with high flavanol improves cardiovascular health. The study was specifically to test the effectiveness of the cocoa with long term use. 41 stable Type-2 diabetics were given cocoa with high dose flavanol in comparison with low flavanol dosage cocoa. During the study, the researchers did find that the flavanol found in cocoa did have a positive effect on FMD response in diabetics. Researchers concluded that these results happened by increased production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a chemical that sends signals to arteries to relax and widen in response to increased blood flow. This relaxation of the arteries takes stress off the heart and blood vessels.
Diabetes new treatments are currently being researched all over the world. But currently there is no cure that has been accepted by the medical communities for either Type-1 or Type-2 diabetes.
