Diabetes : Cure or Conspiracy?

To some people, diabetes can be a fated nemesis that will remain for life. Most people might be unaware that diabetes can also be inherited. Medical history from other family members are certainly risk factors, but lifestyle is the ultimate determinant. Diabetes has restricted many people from having their favorite foods at their own chosen times, and that alone is a reason why diabetes is such an ill-fated ailment. Possible health complications only make living with these disease worse. With that in mind, it may be obvious to ask if there is truly no cure for diabetes. Could it be that there is a pharmaceutical conspiracy at a global level manipulating people’s sufferings as they please for financial gain?

 

Price of Medicine

 

Like most ailments, it does not come cheap. Having the need to control and maintain your diet can sometimes involve insulin, oral agents and injectable medications that can be quite costly, especially for such extended periods of time. For those with diabetes, the equipment needed varies depending on the type of diabetes. For type 2, which is a more severe variation, monitors and test strips are necessary. With so many millions of Americans suffering from this, pharmaceutical companies are definitely making a huge profit selling medication and equipment to treat it.

 

Conspiracy Theories vs Cure for Diabetes

 

There are scientists who claim to have discovered the cure to diabetes only to be silenced by big corporations. This is done by not allowing for the proper research to be conducted, as well as not allowing it to go past the laboratory phase. Rumors abound, but no cure is to be found. Documentaries have been produced stating this same claim, however, no one really knows if it is a true account or an attempt at attention and publicity. Others claim that they have found ‘miracle cures’. Unfortunately, most of these claims have no scientific basis. Although those are just claims, there really is a new breakthrough pill that is showing promise in research. It consists of probiotic bacteria that is thought to shift glucose levels in the pancreas. This bacteria was engineered to secrete a peptide that may release insulin as a response to food. Scientists hope to be able to bring it to market as soon as it is deemed safe and effective. It is believed to cure both types of diabetes.

 

Healthy lifestyle

 

Although many conspiracies that there is a cure for diabetes exist, no one to date has been able to prove said claims. Until then, there is nothing that can beat a healthy lifestyle.  Keep in mind that diabetes can still be overcome. Diabetes is mainly affected by your blood sugar level. Though it may seem easier than most may think, avoiding sugar in your everyday diet is not something that can easily be done without dedication and resolve. Sticking to home-cooked foods helps, as well as keeping track of your diet and blood sugar levels. With resolute, will, and effort when adhering to a healthy lifestyle and diet can help you live a long and healthy life.
