Diabetes Free World, a Dream or Reality?

Diabetic patient doing glucose level blood test

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of death in America. Type-1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes are its two main types. Common symptoms of diabetes are rapid weight loss, frequent urge of urination, extreme tiredness and blurred vision.

Its treatment and medications have radically changed in the past few decades. Previously, it was quite hard to diagnose the disease. Doctors used to check the sugar level in a person’s urine. In comparison, the current available methods are relatively easier and inexpensive.  A single drop of blood can easily tell the glucose level of the blood.

Fred Whitehouse, division head emeritus at the Henry Ford Health System, praises the new methods. He states that the new way of testing shows results within few minutes. It helps patients to follow the right health path.

In spite of numerous studies and researchers, health experts only know how to manage the disease. They have been trying hard to find the proper treatment but in vain. Hence, researchers tried to develop treatment with the help of understanding of its complication.

Michael Brownies, expert at Diabetes Research Center of Albert Einstein College, discusses the issue. He states that complication is what makes it a fatal disease.  Hence, a diabetic patient should closely keep an eye on his treatment.
