Diabetes Treatment Options

Can Diabetes be Treated?

Yes. The aim of treatment is to keep blood sugars close to normal. This is done by reducing sugar intake with a balanced diet and by using drugs or insulin.

Treatment Options for Diabetes

Some of the most common treatment options for diabetes are: balanced diet, drugs, insulin and Islet Cell Transplantation.

Diet:
A diet with balanced amounts of fat, protein and sugar is very important for diabetics. The sugar should be natural, unrefined. Fruits and vegetables are the best places to find natural, unrefined sugar. Diabetics should also be cautious of their weight.

Drugs:
Drugs are used but should not be a substitute for a healthy diet. Sulphonylurea drugs stimulate the pancreas to release more insulin and are best for individuals who are not overweight. Biguanide drugs help sugar be absorbed by cells as well as reducing the absorption of carbohydrates from the intestinal system.

Insulin
Modern devices allow diabetics to inject insulin. This usually occurs when they need an insulin boost. Insulin cannot be taken by mouth because the body will digest it.

Emergency!

Diabetes becomes a medical emergency if it is not properly controlled.
