Diabetes is a disease where the body is not able to metabolize glucose in the blood. Type-1 diabetes is caused by the damage of Beta islet cells located in the pancreas. When working properly these cells usually secretes insulin but for people with Type-1 diabetes these cells are not working. Type-1 diabetics will need to be on insulin therapy for the rest of their lives. Type-2 diabetes is cause by the destruction of insulin receptors on cell surfaces which causes the cells to be resistant to insulin. Type-2 diabetes can be managed with lifestyle changes and medication and in some cases with lifestyle changes alone.

There seems to be a bioactive compound in Spanish moss which helps reduce blood sugar levels in most types of diabetes and this is the compound that is being studies. This compound called hydroxymethylglutaric acid (HMG) significantly decreases blood sugar levels in mice within twenty-four hours of injection.

This substance or compound in Spanish moss not only seems to drop blood sugar levels but also drops cholesterol levels. It has also been used in Louisiana for edema, heart disease as well as hemorrhoids.

Many substances such as this are being studied in different countries all over the world. This research is where new medications for the treatment of symptoms of diabetes will come from. Other compounds that are being studies are the substance in chili peppers that make them hot as well as compounds found in cocoa. There are also hundreds of herbs that are also being studies in many different countries.

In China for years, the goji berry has been used to treat Type-2 diabetes. One doctor in China has studied the results of goji berry on the blood of thousands of patients. He believes that the goji berry makes their blood more alkaline. He reports that as the alkalinity changes, there is a reversal of all illnesses. His claim is that this reversal includes cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, renal failure, obesity, high cholesterol, arthritis and other illnesses associated with physical or mental problems, including attention deficit disorder.
