Can ANF Therapy® Help With Diabetes Issues?
Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease/condition that occurs because the body does not produce (or inadequately use) insulin – the hormone of the pancreas.
It is a syndrome characterized by a disorder in the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins.
Insulin controls the glucose (sugar) concentration in the blood and the amount absorbed in the cells. Hypoglycemia is a term that refers to insufficient (or low) blood sugar levels. On the other side, hyperglycemia indicates high blood sugar levels.
Inadequately treated or untreated diabetes can lead to various cardiovascular diseases and kidney diseases. It can damage the nervous system (and nerves), also cause blindness.
Back in 2006, the UN Resolution declared Diabetes the first non-communicable disease that spreads epidemically.
Types of Diabetes
1. Type 1
Another name for this type is Juvenile Diabetes. It occurs at an early age and is thought to result from the autoimmune destruction of beta cells (insulin-secreting pancreatic cells). The process is asymptomatic and can last from several months to several years. Opinions of scientists are divided. Some believe that autoimmune destruction occurs due to mistakes in the diet, while others state that the cause is of viral origin (Coxsackie B, rubella, CMV, Epstein-Barr, mumps virus). Patients diagnosed with this type of diabetes are prescribed artificial insulin.
2. Type 2
It is characterized by impaired insulin secretion, peripheral insulin resistance, and increased blood sugar production. Different studies link the occurrence of this type to various (non) genetic factors. Obesity and reduced physical activity play a significant role. Likewise, family history, duration of obesity as well as fat distribution are also crucial.
3. Gestational Diabetes
The type of diabetes that develops in pregnant women who have not been previously diagnosed with this condition. It occurs mainly after the birth of a child. These children have a much higher disposition to develop obesity or type 2 diabetes later in life.
Causes & Symptoms
Most often, this condition is simple to diagnose. The symptoms include:
-Sudden weight loss
-Dark skin on the neck
-Increased demand for food
Type 1 diabetes occurs when your immune system attacks the pancreatic beta cells. Scientists believe that the cause is genetics and environmental factors (viruses).
If a patient is overweight (or obese for years), has a low level of physical activity, and extra belly fat is more likely to develop diabetes type 2. It is linked to insulin resistance when the muscles and liver do not use insulin properly. The pancreas increases insulin production, and over time that production drops as blood sugar levels rise. Also, genetics have a big impact on the development of the condition.
Gestational diabetes is caused by hormonal changes, genetic factors, and inadequate lifestyle.
-Hormonal diseases (Cushing’s syndrome, Acromegaly, Hyperthyroidism)
-Damage/removal of the pancreas
-Certain medications (niacin, some diuretics, anti-seizure medications, psychiatric drugs, pentamidine, glucocorticoids
In the video, you will see the testimony of a patient with bladder and sugar issues where after the ANF Therapy® session and application of ANF Discs, his blood sugar levels were optimized.
