What Is Diabetes? Diabetes is the Fastest Growing Disease in the World Today!

Types Of Diabetes

In the simplest terms . . . diabetes mellitus (commonly referred to as just

"diabetes") is a blood sugar disease . . . a disease in which the body either does not produce or does not properly utilize insulin.

Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. Because diabetics have a problem with insulin, their body's can't use glucose (blood sugar) for energy, which results in elevated blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia) and the eventual urination of sugar out of their bodies. As a result . . . diabetics can literally starve themselves to death.

There are three main types of diabetes:

Type 1 ("insulin-dependent" and previously called "juvenile diabetes"). Type 1 diabetes is associated with a malfunctioning pancreas which does not produce adequate amounts of insulin. It develops most often in children and young adults. Type 1 diabetes is traditionally treated with insulin.

Type 2 ("noninsulin-dependent" or sometomes called "adult-onset diabetes"). Type 2 diabetes is associated with insulin resistant cells. It is much more common and usually develops in older adults. Type 2 diabetes is now being found at younger ages and is even being diagnosed among children and teens.

Gestational (pregnancy-related). Some women develop diabetes during pregnancy usually toward the end of pregnancy. It effects approximately 3 to 5 percent of all pregnant women. Although it goes away after pregnancy, these women have a higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes later in life.

Diabetes and it's complications can be treated and/or prevented safely without prescription drugs. If you have diabetes or any of the risk factors for diabetes or are just concerned about diabetes, you should start now with a natural treatment plan to reduce your risk.

There are 3 components to Reversing Diabetes Naturally:

Diet: The single most important change any diabetic or person at risk can make is to improve their diet. A proper diabetic diet should have a low glycemic index . . . which means containing low simple carbohydrates, moderate protein and high fiber.

This diabetic diet will reduce blood sugar, reduce insulin levels, and reduce the need for medications. It will also help to reduce weight, reduce blood pressure and support overall health and energy.

Exercise: Many studies have shown that exercise is of great benefit to diabetics and can significantly reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Regular physical activity helps reduce weight, lower blood sugar, improve insulin sensitivity, strengthen the immune system, improve circulation, lower blood pressure, lower LDL ("bad") cholesterol, raise HDL ("good") cholesterol, and reduce risk of heart disease.

Nutritional Supplements: There are a number of nutritional supplements that every diabetic should be taking on a daily basis. These supplements are very effective in helping to lower blood sugar and insulin levels, reduce cholesterol levels, reduce triglyceride levels, reduce blood pressure, improve energy, and reduce the risk of heart disease.

How Melabic Protects:

Melabic can also protect your tissues (eyes, kidneys, blood vessels from the damage diabetes often causes It also supports your immune system, protecting your heart and improve circulation.

The effectiveness of Melabic is not at all theoretical, it is fact. There are thousands of published studies proving the beneficial effects these supplements have on diabetics. Amazingly enough, despite the overwhelming evidence, most M.D.'s do not recommend nutritional supplements to their diabetic patients. Fortunately, a prescription is not required.

If you have diabetes . . . supplementation is more than important . . . it is vital!
