1.2 million people in the Netherlands are suffering from type 2 diabetes and scientists and doctors around the world are seeking treatment for this disease. Wednesday is World Diabetes Day. A good moment to see how things express it.
"Possible New Diabetes Therapeutics", headlined De Foxkrant Three weeks ago, and other media reported good news for people with type 2 diabetes. This was the result of a European study led by Annieke van Baar, a doctoral researcher in gastrointestinal and bowel disease at Amsterdam UMC.
Burning the mucosal layer of the duodenum leads to better delivery to the pancreas, making the body susceptible to hormone insulin. Therefore, some people with diabetes do not need to take insulin injections anymore.
It is the latest research in the world diabetes research. Since the discovery of insulin in 1922, many new discoveries have been made about this disease. Wednesday, November 14 is World Diabetes Day. Every year we pay attention to diabetics and diabetics every year.
Type 2 diabetes was a disease of old age.
If someone is suffering from type 2 diabetes, it is called aged sugar. According to Hanno Pijl, an endocrinologist and diabetes researcher at Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), this reality has long overtaken us. More and more children are among the patients.
The problem with type 2 diabetes is the action of hormone insulin. Normally, the body causes the hormone to carry blood glucose to the tissue. Glucose is used as a food for muscles among other things. In diabetes 2 it does not function properly, but the hormone. Result: Glucose can not escape the bloodstream, which causes the blood glucose level to rise too high.
Too high glucose levels can be harmful depending on the arrow. Your body tries to maintain a balance of sugar levels too high. Because it is ineffective on normal roads, chronic low levels of inflammation occur. This inflammation causes vascular damage. It is harmful in the long run. Diabetes increases the risk of aging diseases such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, ophthalmologic kidney problems and dementia.
To make your body more sensitive to insulin, GPs almost always prescribe prescription drugs. Then increase your insulin along with other medications. Therefore, many diabetics need insulin injections. It often works well.
But Professor Pijl has doubts. Higher insulin levels lead to higher side effects and higher blood pressure. There are also signs that it promotes cancer cell proliferation.
Many diabetics need to inject insulin to increase their insulin.
Medicines fail to address key issues
When medication is given, it rarely rains. In addition, they do not address the core of the problem: "You indirectly increase insulin, lower your blood sugar level, but do nothing about inflammation."
Are you aware that research is underway on new remedies such as those in Amsterdam UMC? Say Yes, No, Arrow. Research in Amsterdam seems to suggest that intervention may delay the use of insulin for those who actually need to take the drug.
One year later, 90% of the study subjects did not need insulin. So Arrow thinks it can be a way to stop the progression of diabetes. However, there are no long-term results yet. Moreover, intervention does not improve the subject's health.
Type 2 diabetes can be reduced or reversed.
So professors demand more lifestyle advice from general practitioners. It is indeed possible to improve health. Type 2 diabetes has always been considered a chronic disease and has never been eliminated. But that is not true. According to Pijl, it is one of the biggest discoveries in recent years. Diabetes should be reduced and even reversed. Many patients with good nutrition, many exercises, stress management and healthy sleep can lower sugar levels.
How is it possible? According to Pijl, lifestyle is one of the main reasons for the rapid increase in the number of people with type 2 diabetes over the past several decades. We have a very different life from our ancestors who inherit genes. We eat much more, not harmful to health.
Solving problems at the root
Overweight treats type 2 diabetes. Scientists believe that the immune system that causes the inflammation process is due to focus on adipose tissue, especially the abdomen. In addition, fat cells with the sweat glands also produce hormones that interfere with the effects of insulin.
According to Pijl, weight loss is very helpful. The smaller the adipocyte, the less inflammatory response, so the insulin works well. Weight loss immediately reduces the risk of diabetes. A few kilometers.
So eat plenty of vegetables and good fats, and throw away salt, sugar, and bad fat products. It then prevents low grade inflammation. Moving is also helpful. Sometimes, stress needs to be better handled, and regular sleep helps.
Some studies give him the same; People with type 2 diabetes who switch to a healthy lifestyle do not have to sprinkle glucose anymore. According to Pijl, it is a remedy for fighting type 2 diabetes. Because lifestyle interventions deal with problems in your roots.
What is the difference between type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes?
- In Type 2, the body makes less insulin and is not affected by insulin, so the body does not respond well to insulin.
- Type 1 diabetes is an immune disease, often occurring in people less than 30 years of age. The immune system loses balance and attacks cells that produce insulin.
- One out of 10 people with type 2 diabetes has type 1 diabetes, while the other 9 suffer from type 2 diabetes.
