A natural way to help Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disorder of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism characterized by fasting elevations of blood glucose levels, an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, renal disease and neuropathy. Diabetes can occur when the pancreas does not secrete enough insulin or if the cells in the body become resistant to insulin, so the blood glucose cannot get into the cells, which can lead to serious complications. The classic symptoms of diabetes are frequent urination, excessive thirst and appetite. Diabetes is divided into two major categories, type 1 and type 2, or insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, which occurs in children and teenagers.

 Osteoporosis tends to affect bones of the body such as the hip, wrists, and spine.  Symptoms don’t usually become apparent until bone density has dramatically reduced.  Once it has reached a more advanced stage, there will be symptoms such as bone fracturing which occurs very easily; a loss of height; and back pain.
