Diabetes is a chronic, often debilitating and sometimes fatal disease, in which the body cannot produce insulin, or cannot utilize the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that controls the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood.
Diabetes leads to high blood sugar levels because there is not enough efficient Insuline to move sugar into the cells. High blood sugar levels in the blood damages organs, blood vessels and nerves. Insulin is utilized to transport sugar so the sugar can be used as an energy source.
- A major goal of a diabetes treatment is to control blood (sugar) levels, and prevent Diabetic complications.
- Type 1 Diabetes is managed with insulin, dietary changes, excercise, medication, and other medical protocols.
- Type 2 Diabetes may be managed with non-insulin medications, insulin, weight reduction, dietary changes, and other medical protocols.
MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (ms)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers. This loss of the myelin sheath causes breaks in communication between the brain, and nerves in the body. Eventually the nerves deteriorate, or become permanently damaged.LEARN MORE
