Diabetes And Hypoglycemia
As with many degenerative diseases, diabetes is on the rise. Other than the Type I juvenile onset condition, diabetes is caused by years of poor dietary habits. The organ affected is the pancreas, which sits just below the rib cage to the left of the abdomen. It is responsible for producing enzymes to digest foods and insulin to assimilate sugars.
Overeating sweets and/or starches stimulates the pancreas to keep over-producing insulin. Eventually, it "burns out" and insulin production decreases dramatically. If diagnosis is made early and the diet is changed to exclude sweets and starches, often the pancreas can rejuvenate on its own, especially with the help of certain nutrients. If the pancreas is genetically weak and/or diet is not significantly changed, insulin injections may be necessary. It is very important to get this condition corrected as soon as possible due to the disease's complications such as impotence, blindness and gangrene.
Too Much Sugar in The Blood
Diabetes or hyperglycemia (too much sugar in the blood) and hypoglycemia (not enough sugar in the blood) are both sugar handling pancreatic dysfunctions. People with hypoglycemia, often a precursor to diabetes, may feel shaky or dizzy if they go without food for only a few hours. They often crave sugar, but eating sweets handles their symptoms, while pushing them further toward the diabetic condition. The answer is to help the pancreas rejuvenate while transitioning to a healthy diet.
A healthcare practitioner specializing in natural holistic medicine can conduct the proper tests to evaluate the status of the pancreas and make recommendations for the appropriate nutrients and dietary changes. Controlling diabetes with medicine does not help rejuvenate the pancreas and can do quite the opposite without alleviating diabetic complications.
