Diabetes Hypertension Treatment

Diabetes mellitus is inability of body to use sugar because lack of or resistance to insulin. Sugar cannot go into the cells by itself. When sugar enters the cells and leaves the bloodstream, the blood sugar level is lowered. Without insulin, sugar cannot get into the body’s cells for use as energy. This causes sugar to rise. High sugar in the blood is called “hyperglycemia”. Diabetes can be  type 1 seen in persons under 30 years age or type 2 seen generally in persons over 40 years o f age.

Causes of diabetes

Diabetes is mostly inherited. Other factor increasing chances of diabetes are stress, overweight, medications, injury to pancreas, hypertension, etc. Sugar itself does not cause diabetes.

Symptoms of diabetes

The symptoms of diabetes include increase of urine, thirst, hunger. Feeling tired weakness and weight loss.

Diagnosis

Checking blood sugar or Glycated haemoglobin confirms diabetes prediabetes or normal state.  Fasting blood sugar normally is less than 100 mg/dl (5.6 mmol/l). Pre-diabetics will have fasting sugar

You hold the keys to managing your diabetes by: Diet, exercises, reducing stress, medication and meticulous follow up.

Acupuncture treatment helps to great extent in managing diabetes when used with usual management tools. Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture has wide experience in treating diabetes as adjuvant therapy of diabetes.

In summary, current evidence suggests that acupuncture may represent an effective strategy to improve insulin resistance and help manage various metabolic disorders. Moreover, adipo-myokines, which are produced by activation of skeletal muscle and adipose tissue in response to physical exercise, may possibly contribute to the beneficial effects of acupuncture in metabolic diseases. Further detailed studies focusing on the specific role of adipo-myokines within the therapeutic mechanisms of acupuncture in this context are required.

Hypertension

Acupuncture exerts a homeostatic regulation of blood pressure. For patients with extremely high blood pressure, acupuncture significantly reduce systolic and diastolic pressures. For patients with moderate levels of high blood pressure, acupuncture moderately reduces systolic and diastolic pressures. The clinical advantage was that acupuncture provides a regulated lowering of blood pressure relative to the clinical needs patients.

Researchers find both acupuncture and drugs effective for the management of hypertension. Advantage of acupuncture therapy when compared with medications is that it produces minimal adverse effects, especially. Medications have an important advantage. They are easily accessible.  Acupuncture combined with medications produces optimal patient outcomes.

Treatment of hypertension, Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture Pain Therapy in Nashik find judicious incorporating both modalities give far better results.

“We therefore conclude that our data strongly suggest that acupuncture should be in the hypertension treatment guidelines and widely used for blood pressure regulation.”
