Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrinological diseases of modern society. Diabetes is, to put it bluntly, a condition of elevated blood sugar. Insulin is a hormone that regulates the process of taking glucose from the blood into most cells in the body. If insufficient amounts of insulin are secreted, or for some reason, it does not affect the entry of glucose into the cells, then it is retained in the blood and hyperglycemia or elevated blood sugar occurs.

In addition to genetics and modern lifestyles, exposure to stressful situations, sleeplessness, unbalanced diet are factors that can also stimulate the onset of this disease.

The most common classification of diabetes is type I diabetes, type II diabetes and gestational diabetes.

Type I diabetes is the type of diabetes most commonly associated at younger ages. It is due to a lack of insulin and elevated glucagon. In this type of diabetes, the pancreatic cells practically do not secrete the hormone insulin. The most common symptoms are frequent urination, thirst, weight loss, impaired vision.

Type II diabetes was also called insulin-independent. More than 90% of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. Most people are between the ages of 40 and 60, although it has been increasingly seen in younger people lately.

Symptoms of type 2 diabetes are mild, the disease often goes unnoticed, affects both sexes and is detected when complications are already present.

Natural healing

Medicines coming from nature can also help lower blood sugar levels. Natural remedies additionally help in the treatment of diabetes, but that does not mean that you do not need to take care of your diet, increase physical activity and follow the treatment prescribed by your specialist or doctor. Celery, dandelion, fresh carrots can help lower blood sugar. Vegetables that are also helpful are the green leek, garlic and onions. Another way of fighting diabetes is the usage of essential oils.
