Diabetics medicine myth

MYTH : High Sugar or Low Sugar is a serious disorder and needs to be controlled thru Diabetes medicine or Insulin

In order to circumvent above mentioned process, the Doctor prescribe Diabetes medicine that forces the Pancreas to secrete Insulin irrespective of the quality of glucose. Now all the glucose in the blood will have Insulin thereby making the cells accept all the glucose as they all have Insulin now. Since cells now accept even bad glucose as they too carry Insulin, they cannot perform their function of repairing/renewing the body cells properly and that’s why the body/organs become prone to various pains/illness/diseases.

As the so called ‘Diabetic’ patient continues to take ‘Diabetic’ medicine, along with other organs, even Pancreas gets repaired and due to the poor quality of glucose intake by the Pancreas cells. Due to this the Diabetes medicine cannot make the Pancreas create ‘Insulin’ anymore and this when the ‘Diabetes’ patient evolves ūüė¶ to the next serious stage and Doctor prescribes ‘Insulin’ injection to them. Injecting Insulin directly into the body totally kills the body’s ‘Quality Control’ mechanism and all the food that we eat, irrespective of the quality of glucose created gets diffused into the blood. The cells have no choice but to work with inferior quality glucose (as all glucose have Insulin now) and they poorly discharge their duty of repairing and renewing cells thereby leading to the body/organs totally susceptible to all kinds of diseases and poor immunity to external attacks from virus/bacteria.

Normally the lower limbs (legs) of the body undergoes higher blood circulation, as blood quality becomes very poor, the cells in the legs/foot get dead faster leading to numbness in the foot initially and hence any wound/injury happens in the foot, will not get cured and due to easy infection very soon the patient’s entire legs needs to get amputated.

Any organ of the body that undergoes more strain like eyes etc., too gets this pathetic end as the cells with bad quality of glucose from blood has totally lost its inherent capability to repair/renew the cells in the eyes.

The message is¬†‘right food taken at the right time in the right way’¬†alone cannot make the body defend itself naturally and continue to renew/rejuvenate the cells of the body thereby the person stays healthy.The ‘Diabetes medicine’ & ‘Insulin Injection’ only kills the ‘Quality Control’ mechanism of the body and makes the body prone to all diseases and die a horrible death.

Sugar-not a real cause for diabetes!

Till date, sugar has had a bad reputation and is linked seriously to the cause of heart disease, obesity, cavities, hyperactivity in children, and diabetes.

The fact is that sugar per se is a source of ’empty’ calories – that is, it provides no nutritional value aside from energy ‚Äď but it certainly isn’t the dietary villain it has been portrayed as.

This white crystalline substance is essential part of our biological system. “There’s one organ that runs almost entirely on sugar; the brain. The brain needs the glucose to function properly and you need a pre-activated brain before you face the first challenge at your workplace. Sugar keeps your brain active. It is the fuel for the body to provide energy throughout the day.” says Dr. Kajal Pandya, Senior Dietician, Sita Ram Bhartiya Institute of Science & Research Centre, New Delhi.

The hormone called ‘insulin’ is needed for sugar to be used as fuel for the body. And it is produced by the pancreas and it helps sugar move from the bloodstream into the cells which require energy. Diabetes, a metabolic disorder is not caused by consuming carbohydrates, including sugar. It is caused by the body not being able to produce enough insulin or it is unable to properly use the insulin that is produced. Both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes disrupt the body’s ability to convert blood glucose (commonly referred to as blood sugar) into energy.

The result is that too much sugar stays in the bloodstream and not enough sugar gets into the cells of the body where it can be used as fuel. This ensures that eating sugar is not the cause for diabetes.

So, not only sugar but other carbohydrates are also converted into glucose. The matter of fact is to manage one’s diet along with some physical activity, is very important once a person develops diabetes.

Myths and Facts

Myth1: Eating sugar in large quantity causes diabetes.

Fact: Type 1 diabetes is caused due to destruction of more than 90% of the insulin-producing cells, present in pancreas, which is not related to sugar consumption at all. Type 2 diabetes results. In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas continues to produce insulin, sometimes even at higher than normal levels. However, the body develops resistance to the effects of insulin, so there is not enough insulin to meet the body’s needs.

Myth 2: Diabetics can never eat sweets.

Fact: Diabetics can eat a certain amount of sugary food as part of a balanced diet, but they need to control the total amount of carbohydrates they eat. Sweets provide only calories, no nutrition so sweet should be limited ‚ÄĒ but not eliminated.

Myth 3: Low-carbohydrate diets are good for diabetics.

Fact: Carbohydrates are preferred by body as the source of energy. Low-carbohydrate diets are overloaded with proteins and fats. Following a high-fat, high-protein diet over the long term may increase the risks of heart and kidney disease. People with diabetes should adopt a meal plan that helps them in balancing carbohydrate consumption with medication and exercise to control diabetes.
