Breakthrough Diabetes Treatments Make Waves in Medicine

According to the Center for Disease Control5, nearly 30 million Americans are now affected by diabetes. Diabetes has also been known to lead to heart disease and in some cases, amputation. However, much of this is about to change.

The fight against diabetes has come a long way in recent years, thanks to significant scientific advancements and recent studies. Want to learn more? Here are some things You need to think about.

Now, diabetics no longer have to accept the hard to swallow fact that they may die 10 to 15 years earlier than their non-diabetic friends.

In the last few months, many new treatments have begun to show promising results, and researches don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon. In 2018, we have seen the first clinical trials in humans for a Type 1 vaccine 1. Although it can’t cure existing cases, the hope is that it can prevent many new ones. Poxel, a French company is nearing a Japanese market release of a drug2 that helps to reverse effects of lost mitochondria production by targeting the pancreas, liver, and muscles at the same time. Intermittent fasting is also being looked at as a potential way to control insulin levels4.

Managing diabetes is becoming easier as “needle-free” monitoring becomes more and more mainstream with various methods ranging from smartphone apps, patches, implanted devices, and evolving all the way to Google and Novartis’ short-lived partnership3 on glucose-sensing contact lenses that sense glucose level in tears. With all these advancements is a cure truly around the corner? We can only hope!

However, most doctors are not diabetes specialists, and it is likely your general practitioner is not informed of these new treatments for diabetes.

If you or somebody you know has diabetes, do not let your doctor determine your future alone. Chances are, your doctor may not be aware of all the advancements made in treating diabetes in the last few months.

For these reasons, it is crucial that you conduct your own research as well to find the best solution for your individual needs and symptoms. This is especially true if you have been seeing the same doctor for years or if one doctor has only diagnosed you.

Since every case is unique, shouldn’t your treatment plan be as well?
