Diabetes, insulin dependent
Diabetes is a metabolic disease that results from an inability of the hormone insulin to facilitate the uptake of sugar by body cells. Diabetes can come from excessive and chronic intake of refined sugar, stress, or have hereditary basis. In mild cases, the insulin can be taken orally; in more severe cases, it must be injected daily.
Treatment Plan for Diabetes, insulin dependent
A diet low in fats and sugar and high in fiber is essential, as is adequate exercise. An herbal program can include adaptogens to help stabilize blood sugar and balance the metabolism, blood-sugar lowering herbs, and pancreatic tonics.
