“A study in Japan has found older people with type 2 diabetes and loss of muscle mass have significantly lower vitamin B1, B12 and D intake, compared to subjects without muscle mass loss.” [Source: nutraingredients.com]
This study’s findings are consistent with Dr. Rath’s revolutionary Cellular Medicine approach to type 2 diabetes, which is based on the scientific discovery that the disease’s primary cause is a long-term deficiency of certain vitamins and other essential nutrients in the cells of the pancreas, the liver, the blood vessel walls, and other organs. Research carried out at the Dr. Rath Research Institute in California has shown that an optimum intake of these nutrients can prevent and control diabetes.
Dr. Rath’s approach contrasts with that of conventional medicine, which is confined to treating the symptoms of diabetes by lowering elevated levels of blood sugar. Given that cardiovascular disease and other diabetic complications still occur even in those patients whose blood sugar levels are successfully controlled, it therefore follows that while lowering blood sugar levels is clearly necessary in diabetes, it amounts to an incomplete treatment of the condition.
