What are the treatments for diabetes?

There are two types of diabetes. It really depends which one you are talking about. There are currently no cures for either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, but there are treatment options.Type one diabetes is treated by giving yourself insulin shots. In type one diabetics, their pancreas is not functioning at all, thus the hormones insuling and glucagon are not in effect. When you eat carbohydrates, the body balances that out by creating insulin. When you exercise a lot, your body needs glucose, which is what glucagon is.However, type 1 diabetics need to find a way to get their supply of insulin and glucose. Insulin shots are the most common method of introducing insulin to the body. There are two main types of insulin: humalog and lantus. Humalog is a quick-acting insulin that acts within 1-2 hours of the injection. This is used to coutneract daily snacks and meals, as you never know when or how much you are going to eat. Lantus is a long-acting insulin that helps to balance the humalog amount. Usually, either one dose is given in the morning or two doses are given at the morning and at night. This allows the level of humalog you give yourself to be much lower.That is just how to control the consumption of glucose. To control the effect of exercise, glucose is needed to give your body fuel. This can be done by simply eating anything with carbohydrates. Some foods are more quick-acting than others. For instance, most juices (orange juice, capri sun's, apple juice, etc.) along with fruits are quick acting, while other carbohydrates typically found as main meals (potatoes, pasta, bread, etc.) are slower acting.For type two diabetes, you need to control your weight and blood pressure along with your insulin levels. Most people can control type two diabetes by exercising daily and at the same time and by dieting (controlling glucose levels).
