What is Diabetes?
Diabetes, also known as the `silent epidemic', is a chronic
condition which occurs when the body is incapable of effectively
producing enough insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced by the
pancreas, which transfers glucose from food to the cel s in the body,
where it is transformed into energy needed by tissues and muscles to
function properly.
The body of a person suffering from diabetes cannot absorb glucose
properly. Therefore, glucose remains in the blood and damages tissues
over time, a process cal ed hyperglycemia, which eventual y leads to
life-threatening health complications.
According to the World Health Organization, diabetes is spreading
around the world at an alarming speed. Annual y, 3.2 mil ion diabetes-
related deaths are reported in the world, a number close to that of
AIDS-related deaths. This means that 8,700 people die of diabetes each
day, or 6 people per minute.
In the past, diabetes was known as a genetic disease, but over the past
decades other causes have developed, making the disease mainly a
lifestyle-related one. A sedentary lifestyle, an unhealthy diet and
increasing obesity trends all lead to diabetes, affecting young and old.
The worst affected regions in the world are the Middle East, South and
South East Asia, and parts of Northern Africa. India and China are two
countries with the largest number of diabetics.

Types of Diabetes
There are three types of diabetes: type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes mel itus or GDM.
Type 1 Diabetes
This type of diabetes is caused by an auto-immune reaction, which means that the body's own defense
mechanism attacks cells in the pancreas which produce insulin. Therefore, the body no longer produces necessary
insulin. It is not clear what causes type 1 diabetes, which affects especially children and young adults. Type 1
diabetics need insulin injections every day to control the level of glucose in their blood, without which they would
die. They can lead a normal life only with the daily insulin injections, a healthy diet, close monitoring and regular
physical exercise.
Type 1 diabetes develops suddenly. Characteristic symptoms include: blurred vision, recurrent infections, sudden
weight loss, slow-healing wounds, constant hunger, abnormal thirst and dry mouth, extreme tiredness or lack of
energy and frequent urination.
Type 2 Diabetes
This is the most common type of this disease, and although it usually occurs in adults, over recent years, it has been
seen in children and adolescents. As opposed to type 1 diabetes, in this type of the disease the body produces
insulin, but not enough, or the body does not respond to its effects, resulting in a build-up of glucose in the blood.
It might take years until the symptoms are recognized or visible, a period during which the body is continuously
damaged by excess blood glucose. The risk factors for type 2 diabetes are: ethnicity, increasing age, poor diet,
physical inactivity, poor nutrition during pregnancy, and family history of diabetes or obesity.
People with type 2 diabetes do not need daily insulin injections, but insulin may be prescribed orally, in addition to
increased physical activity and a healthy diet. The number of people suffering of type 2 diabetes has continuously
increased, and some of the factors blamed for this are dietary changes, ageing populations, increasing
urbanization, economic development, changes in lifestyles and reduced physical activity.
Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
Pregnant women may be diagnosed with gestational diabetes mellitus. This means that the body is not capable of
producing or using enough insulin necessary for the pregnancy. The disease usually develops later in pregnancy.
Therefore, the risk to the baby is lower if the mother is diagnosed with type 1 or 2 diabetes. Women with GDM have
to control the level of glucose in the blood through a healthy diet, but also insulin and oral medication.
GDM usually disappears after birth, but unfortunately, the risk of developing type 2 diabetes post-pregnancy is high
for the mothers, as well as for the children born to mothers with GDM.
The high level of glucose in blood can lead to several diseases which affect the blood vessels and heart, kidneys,
eyes and nerves. This means that diabetics have a higher risk of developing serious health problems as well as
infections. Without adequate monitoring, diabetes may lead to blindness, cardiovascular disease, kidney failure or
even lower limb amputation.

Diabetes Treatment Options
Although diabetes is a chronic condition, it can be controlled through a healthy diet,
exercise programs and the necessary treatments.
Stem Cell Therapy
One of the possible treatments for diabetes mel itus is stem cel transplants and treatments,
which have shown positive results in type 2 diabetes, such as lower blood sugar levels and
even the complete reversal of the diabetic process. Research facilities are continuing to
develop stem cel replacement therapy to restore normal insulin function. Stem cel therapy
uses embryonic or fetal stem cel s to find cures and treatments for various diseases such as
diabetes, cancer, blood diseases and many more.
Laparoscopic Metabolic Surgery
Using laparoscopic metabolic surgery techniques, the surgeon removes part of the stomach
and also rearranges the smal bowel, leading to changes in the gut hormones that control
the production and release of insulin. Studies show that this surgery cures type 2 diabetes by
reducing ghrelin (a hormone that increases appetite), weight loss and increasing the action
of incretins (hormones that increase insulin secretion).
The price for this surgery is quite high due to the advanced vessel-sealing technology and the
use of staplers. However, due to the success of this procedure, the costs should be seen as an
investment for a healthier and longer life.
Ayurvedic Treatments
Ayurvedic treatment is considered an unconventional, natural medicine approach, which
has seen an increased popularity over past years. Ayurvedic medicine has its roots in India,
where it appeared thousands of years ago, based on the belief that many il nesses can be
treated and prevented though a blend of spirit, body and mind. The Ayurvedic approach
can sooth symptoms of chronic diseases including asthma, arthritis, various form of cancers
and even diabetes.

Diabetes Treatment and PlacidWay
Diabetes Treatment Benefits:
Lower blood sugar levels
Weight loss for obese patients
An increase in the action of incretins (hormones
that increase insulin release)
As the number of diabetes cases continues to increase, it is believed that the disease wil become the
global health crisis of the next generation. Medics believe that they can control the rampant epidemic
by increasing people's awareness to the prevalence of this disease, and by encouraging them to lead
a healthy life and regularly test themselves for a rapid detection of diabetes.
