Type 2 diabetes
There are about 500 million people in the world with Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition in which the body fails to properly use and store glucose. Instead of converting sugar into energy, it backs up in the bloodstream and causes a variety of symptoms.
Type 2 diabetes results when the body doesn’t produce enough insulin and/or is unable to use insulin properly (insulin resistance). This form of diabetes usually occurs in people who are over 40 years of age, overweight, and have a family history of diabetes, although it is now increasingly found in younger people. Type 2 diabetes can be caused by a variety of factors: being overweight, being physically inactive, or your body’s inability to properly use the insulin it produces. In addition, those who have been previously identified as having impaired fasting glucose or impaired glucose tolerance are also at risk. In some cases of type 2 diabetes, there are no symptoms and people can live for months, even years, without knowing they have the disease.
Risk factors for type 2 diabetes include obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and physical inactivity. The risk of developing type 2 diabetes also increases as people grow older. Women who develop diabetes while pregnant (gestational diabetes) are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes later in life. Currently, there is no conventional medicine cure for type 2 diabetes. If left untreated, it can lead to a number of damaging complications such as heart attacks, strokes, blindness, kidney failure, and blood vessel disease that may require an amputation, nerve damage, and impotence in men. The aim of treatment is to normalize the blood glucose in an attempt to prevent or minimize complications.
People with type 2 diabetes may experience marked hyperglycemia, but many do not require insulin injections and can be treated with diet, exercise, and oral hypoglycemic drugs. Type 2 diabetes is often treated with oral medication because many people with Type 2 diabetes make some insulin on their own. The pills people take to control type 2 diabetes do not contain insulin. Instead, medications such as metformin, sulfonylureas, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors and many others are used to make the insulin that the body still produces more effective. Some people with type 2 diabetes are treated with insulin – either injectable or via insulin pump.
Stemergy offers a formulation specifically aimed at managing blood glucose levels in people with Diabetes Type 2 using natural substances capable of producing required sugar-lowering/utilization effects. Stemergy formulations are not a replacement for insulin. They are considered to be complimentary to current standard of care. Once the effect of the product is known to the patient and verified by a physician, the formulation may be incorporated into management strategies with possible reduction of insulin or other medication dependence. Interestingly, there is evidence that herbal supplementation for disease management results in some possible functional re-acquisition of pancreatic beta cell insulin production through either realignment, re-sensitization or proliferation of these cells.
In non-insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM), StemErgy Gluco Metabolic 2 has been designed to improve glucose sensitivity and related lipogenic metabolics precluding a progression to insulin and possibly reconstituting beta cell activity and return to normalcy.
Main Characteristics and Benefits
- Specially formulated to improve insulin sensitivity, glucose tolerance, and insulin signaling.
- Proven in human clinical trials to have regenerative potential via hematopoietic and mesenchymal stem cell proliferation and release into peripheral circulation for use in body target site.
- Supports and nourishes cells throughout the body.
- Cells starved by aberrant glucose utilization may be nourished by this formulation.
- Suitable for anyone that wants to regulate and stablize their blood sugar level on a daily basis.
- This product is not a replacement for insulin. It has naturally-induced cellular detoxification and reactive oxygen species that support the healthy proliferation and release of circulating mesenchymal cells that could target and sustain the pancreas (that produce, store and release the hormone insulin). It releases paracrine factors to further modify an aberrant/toxic microenvironment making it more conducive to regenerate insulin-producing beta cells.
- This formulation can also help minimize the damaging effects of associated progressive disease.
- Exhibits anti-inflammatory activity
- Supports blood sugar and lipid levels in humans.
