Disease Name: Diabetes Mellitus
Description: Increase in the amount of glucose in the blood due either to failure of the pancreas (an organ in the abdomen, producing digestive juices) to produce enough of the hormone insulin or to the lack of insulin action. This means that sugar accumulates in the blood and body tissues, causing defects in various parts of the body. Often called sugar diabetes.
Persons most commonly affected: Usually people under 30 of both sexes, but it may begin at any age. It can also frequently affect middle aged and elderly particularly if they are obese. Heredity also plays an important part.
Organ or part of body involved: Pancreas
Symptoms and indications: Excessive thirst, fatigue, weight loss and increased appetite, impotence in men, frequent urination, itching genitals, boils, and, if advanced, deterioration of vision. Slow healing of cuts and scrapes is often noticed.
Causes and risk factors: The causes are mostly unknown, although there seems to be an inherited tendency to developing diabetes. However, it may be triggered by stress or viral infection. Some women develop diabetes during pregnancy, but it normally disappears after the baby’s birth. Missing meals may lead to hypoglycemia (too low a level of glucose in the blood). The sufferer will be hungry and may sweat and become confused. An immediate intake of glucose will usually return them to normal. Too low a level of insulin may lead to coma and death if not corrected. Sufferers of diabetes are at risk of eye and kidney problems, and they have to be very careful to look after their feet, as any foot infection, if not dealt with immediately, may lead to gangrene.
Prevention: Diet and exercise plays a very important part in controlling and containing the disastrous effect of this multifaceted metabolic disorder. Regular exercise can decrease blood glucose levels and increase the body's sensitivity to insulin. Exercise also protects the heart by reducing blood pressure and triglyceride levels. Improved blood glucose levels can delay or reduce the need for glucose-control medications and prevent diabetes-related complications, such as heart and kidney disease, diabetic retinopathy (damage to the light-sensitive portion of the eye), and diabetic peripheral neuropathy (degeneration of nerves serving the legs and arms). Stop smoking and avoid alcohol.
Safe Diabacare: combination of SAFUF ZIABETES AND INDIAN KINO HERB .It is useful in diabetes, controls polyurea ,strengthens kidneys & bladder ,checks urine sugar. Produces the most beneficial results in treating diabetes mellitus and diabetes insipidus. It enhances the production of insulin in the pancreas, normalizes the sugar levels in the blood of diabetic, checks polyuria and is destroyer of glycosuria and other urinary diseases. Strengthens the urinary bladder and is useful in incontinence of urine. Heals wounds quickly.

SPIRULINA CAPSULES - 2 capsules twice a day with breafast and at night before sleep.

Role of Spirulina in the Control of Glycemia and Lipidemia in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

Spirulina, with its high concentration of functional nutrients, is emerging as an important therapeutic food. This study aimed to evaluate the hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic role of Spirulina. Twenty-five subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus were randomly assigned to receive Spirulina (study group) or to form the control group. At baseline, the control and study groups were matched for various variables. The efficacy of Spirulina supplementation (2 g/day for 2 months) was determined using the preintervention and postintervention blood glucose levels, glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA(1c)) levels, and lipid profiles of the diabetic subjects. Two-month supplementation with Spirulina resulted in an appreciable lowering of fasting blood glucose and postprandial blood glucose levels. A significant reduction in the HbA(1c) level was also observed, indicating improved long-term glucose regulation. With regard to lipids, triglyceride levels were significantly lowered. Total cholesterol (TC) and its fraction, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), exhibited a fall coupled with a marginal increase in the level of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). As a result, a significant reduction in the atherogenic indices, TC:HDL-C and LDL-C: HDL-C, was observed. The level of apolipoprotein B registered a significant fall together with a significant increment in the level of apolipoprotein A1. Therefore, a significant and favorable increase in the ratio of A1:B was also noted. These findings suggest the beneficial effect of Spirulina supplementation in controlling blood glucose levels and in improving the lipid profile of subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
