If you are aged 30 or older, you will be surprised to learn that, in your lifetime, Diabetes -- both Type 1 and Type II -- have reached epidemic proportions. Diabetes means your blood glucose (often called blood sugar) is too high. Insulin is a chemical (a hormone) made by the pancreas. The pancreas releases insulin into the blood. Insulin helps the glucose move from food, into your blood, into your cells. There are three main kinds of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. The result of type 1 and type 2 diabetes is the same: a shortage of insulin causes glucose to build up in the blood, while your cells are starved of energy. Over the years, high blood glucose damages nerves and blood vessels, oftentimes leading to complications such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney disease, nerve problems, gum infections, and amputation.
Modern medicine is nothing if not practical. It treats Diabetes simply by putting more insulin into your body. This is done by direct injection or by a "pump" that is left attached to your body and controlled by electronics. This approach tends to treat the symptoms but not necessarily the disease. Interestingly, holistic practice has had good results with change of diet, increased exercise, and other lifestyle changes. This suggests, even to the skeptic, that the pancreas and related hormonal systems may possibly be able to be "re-tuned" back to normal. Indeed, this is the approach that "Traditional Chinese Medicine" also takes. TCM seeks to re-invigorate the pancreas (along with other lifestyle changes) to assist your body in fighting the condition permanently, and without intrusive injections.
