What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is classified into Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is identified at a very early stage in life as the pancreas stop producing insulin, which is needed to produce energy and control blood sugar. This is called juvenile onset diabetes and requires insulin injections to be given as the body cannot operate without it.
Type 2 diabetes is known as adult onset diabetes as it develops later in life. In this medical condition the pancreas successfully produces insulin, but the body develops resistance to insulin, limiting the amount of energy produced for tissues, cells, glands and organs.
There are a wide range of treatments available for treating Type 2 diabetes. However, many patients have benefitted more from therapies in integrative pharmacy, which has led a greater number of people to seek these treatments over the standard treatments.
