As far as diabetes goes, substances such as phosphorous (to lower blood sugar), Codenium and Syzygium may all be useful.

Type 2 diabetes treatment
First line treatment for type 2 diabetes typically includes a combination of diet modification and control, regular and appropriate e ercise and home blood glucose testing. !f blood sugar le"els remain ele"ated despite these measures then tablet medication is usually prescribed. #ecently a number of new and effecti"e treatments ha"e become a"ailable, such as$ %yetta &ictoza %ydureon

'iabetes (ellitus

Type 1 diabetes mellitus !t is characterized by loss of the insulin)producing beta cells of the islets of *angerhans in the pancreas leading insulin deficiency. +his type of diabetes can be further classified as immune) mediated or idiopathic. +he ma,ority of type - diabetes is of the immune)mediated nature, where beta cell loss is a +)cell mediated autoimmune attac.. +here is no .nown pre"enti"e measure against type - diabetes, which causes appro imately -/0 of diabetes mellitus cases in 1orth America and 2urope. (ost affected people are otherwise healthy and of a healthy weight when onset occurs. Sensiti"ity and responsi"eness to insulin are usually normal, especially in the early stages. +ype - diabetes can affect children or adults but was traditionally termed 3,u"enile diabetes3 because it represents a ma,ority of the diabetes cases in children

Type 2 diabetes mellitus +ype 2 diabetes mellitus is characterized by insulin resistance which may be combined with relati"ely reduced insulin secretion. +he defecti"e responsi"eness of body tissues to insulin is belie"ed to in"ol"e the insulin receptor. 4owe"er, the specific defects are not .nown. 'iabetes mellitus due to a .nown defect are classified separately. +ype 2 diabetes is the most common type. !n the early stage of type 2 diabetes, the predominant abnormality is reduced insulin sensiti"ity. At this stage hyperglycemia can be re"ersed by a "ariety of measures and medications that impro"e insulin sensiti"ity or reduce glucose production by the li"er. As the disease progresses, the impairment of insulin secretion occurs, and therapeutic replacement of insulin often becomes necessary
