Worldwide, more than 422 million people now suffer from diabetes. There are two categories of diabetic disorders, known as type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is generally caused by a genetic defect that leads to an insufficient production of insulin in the body and requires regular insulin injections to control blood sugar levels. The majority of diabetic patients, however, develop the type II version of the disease. In type II diabetes, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin and cells respond poorly to it and take in less sugar.
Conventional medicine is confined to treating the symptoms of type 2 diabetes by lowering elevated blood levels of sugar. However, cardiovascular disease and other diabetic complications occur even in patients whose blood sugar levels are successfully controlled. Thus, lowering blood sugar levels is a necessary, but incomplete, treatment of diabetic disorders.
Dr. Rath’s science-based Cellular Medicine approach provides a major breakthrough in our understanding of the causes, prevention, and adjunct treatment of type 2 diabetes. As his research has shown, its primary cause is a long-term deficiency of certain vitamins and other essential nutrients in the cells of the pancreas (the organ that produces insulin), the liver, the blood vessel walls, and other organs.
