Diabetes and the Effects on the Body

Diabetes is all about blood sugar and insulin. When blood sugar levels get out of control, it opens the door to serious diseases and organ damage throughout your body.  

Here’s how.

After a meal, your body breaks down food and drink into proteins, fats and a form of sugar called glucose. Glucose stays in your blood stream until it is absorbed by cells throughout the body. Glucose gives cells the energy they need to fuel your organs and muscles.  

Insulin (a hormone made by the pancreas) helps cells absorb glucose. Without it, glucose stays in the bloodstream and cells starve.

When a person has diabetes, the pancreas makes too little insulin, none at all, or the insulin it does make can’t be used effectively. As a result, blood glucose levels rise out of control and cause serious health issues.

Diabetes takes a toll on your: 

  • Eyes (cataracts, vision blurriness, seeing spots, and even blindness)
  • Kidneys (trouble urinating too much or not enough, injury to kidneys,  and shut down of kidneys, leading to dialysis)
  • Blood flow (poor circulation and high blood pressure)
  • Cholesterol (high levels -- either alone or along with blood flow issues can cause heart attacks, strokes)
  • Nerves (painful stinging or loss of feeling)
  • Skin (sores, wounds that don’t heal and infections that can lead to possible amputation)

Although diabetes can’t be cured, medication, eating healthy, staying active and working closely with your doctor can lower its affect so you can live well.

Here are some additional resources to help you better understand the disease.

Herpes is a serious thing. Stick to the regimen, stop smoking and cut out Alcohol and stay away from any sweetened foods or candies as his herb medicine doesn’t work effectively with sugar or sugary foods and drinks. One week of not consuming some stuff or the rest of your life with herpes simplex virus. It’s your choice. And trust me, I tried just cutting out cigarettes and alcohol though it wasn’t easy as I’m addicted to smoking and drinking of alcohol. Once I stopped doing both and all of what the doctor instructed me not to do and taking my herb medicine the improvement was magical!

  • Finally a cure for diabetes exists. It's not a pharmaceutical drug, but a very safe all natural herbal product that restores your body's own ability to naturally control it's own blood glucose levels back to normal. I have been battling with diabetes type 2 for 12 years now, before a friend lead me to DR WATER. I went on to give it a try. I provided him with all he needed. And a few days later, I received a call from UPS to come collect some herbal products from DR WATER. I can't believe that after using those herbal products, I was healed and I can not stop telling people about this experience. When I went to the hospital for check up, my doctor was surprised and he even ask for DR WATER's email DRWATERHIVCURECENTRE@GMAIL.COM, which i gave to him. This indeed is a genuine solution to Diabetes that I am sharing here, not those very costly medical treatment or a life-long use of diabetic supplements. If you need this herbal product, contact him now. His Whatsapp is : +2349050205019
