Who discovered that insulin was a cure for diabetes?
Insulin is not a cure.
There is no cure for Diabetes yet. However, diabetes can be treated. There are a couple different ways to treat diabetes, but the most common way is to count out your insulin-to-carb ratio, and inject yourself with the proper amount of lantus and humalog or novolog (insulin). Ask your local endocrinologist for how to specifically treat diabetes and how to count out your personal insulin-to-carb ratio.
Besides a Pancreatic transplant, there is no cure for Diabetes; Insulin merely allows a Diabetic to lead an almost perfectly normal and healthy life. Insulin is a natural chemical produced in your body by an organ called the Pancreas. The purpose of Insulin is to regulate your Blood Sugar Level. Those with diabetes must take Insulin daily as their Pancreas no longer produces any, or a sufficient amount, of Insulin.
Till now..there is no medication can cure diabetes.. The medications,available at this moment, are used to control our blood sugar, either by enhance the secretion of insulin, by increasing our tissue's sensitivity to insulin, or by inhibiting the absorbsion of sugar from our gut. So we better say..Diabetes can be controlled by ur physician.^^
Diabetes is caused by any defect on low or no secretion of insulin or improper use of insulin Insulin is secreted by the gland "Pancreas". So pancreas is responsible for diabetes, it the cause is low insulin secretion (type II diabetes) or no insulin secretion (type I diabetes). Body cells is not sensitive to insulin, then diabetes type II is caused called as insulin resistance.
Cinnamon has been found to lower blood sugar levels, but it is by no means a cure. Insulin is not a cure either. Diet and exercise is often the best long term "cure" as many people who were insulin dependent can eliminate or lower their dose substantially after becoming healthier in weight and food consumption.
Type 1 diabetics cannot produce their own insulin so depend on insulin shots, thus they have insulin dependent diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is often referred to as non insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM) due to the fact that in a lot of cases it can be dealt with without the need for regular insulin injections.
There is currently no medicinal cure for type 1 or type 2 diabetes, but drugs are necessary to effectively control type 2 diabetes, such as Insulin, Metformin, and Repaglinide etc. Exercise, healthy diets and insulin treatment help to manage symptoms and reduce the chances of complications from diabetes.
First of all, there are two types of diabetes. Type 1: Juvenile diabetes, which mostly happens with yound children and they are dependant on insulin shots for the rest of their lives. Type 2: Mostly happens with obese adults. Diabetes, in whichever state, is caused when the pancrease (the organ that produces insulin (Insulin is how the sugar, from your foods, gets into your blood cells, which creates energy so you can get through the…
Diabetes mellitus is not caused by a hypersecretion of insulin. A person with diabetes either produces too little insulin, or a normal amount of insulin that is not recognized by other cells in the body. Diabetes is caused by a lack of effective insulin. In type 1 diabetes the pancreatic beta cells are not producing sufficient insulin. Type 2 diabetes occurs when insulin sensitivity in target cells has decreased, so the insulin is no longer…
Yes it can. There are two types of diabetes, insulin dependant and non insulin dependant. Diabetes ends up affecting the kidney and eventually a kidney transplant will be required. Because diabetes is caused by the insulin production, in the insulin dependant diabetes, often a pancreas and kidney transplant will take place. The pancreas is where the insulin is produced. By replacing the pancreas, insulin production becomes normal and diabetes is cured.
Type I diabetes, also known as insulin dependent diabetes, is caused by the complete failure of the pancreas to produce insulin. While those with type II diabetes experience insulin resistance or some failure of insulin production that can be treated with pills or supplements, complete pancreatic failure must be treated using insulin therapy.
