Hope for a Diabetes Cure
Diabetes which affects over 150 million people in the world today is a serious, chronic condition,. There are three types of diabetes: Type 1, Type 2, and gestational. There are similarities and differences among these three types ..One similarity in particular – that as of yet there is no cure.
Diabetes happens when your body is either not producing enough or any insulin, which is a hormone that is required by the body to turn sugar into energy. If there is not enough insulin in the body this sugar cannot be converted into energy and remains in the bloodstream, resulting in a higher than normal blood sugar level.
Although as of yet there is no cure for diabetes, the future looks very bright. There are many different associations and organizations in the world today that are doing extensive research and studying on the disease that we can only expect that in the near future, maybe in the next few years, a cure will be found
Few organizations in particular are currently helping in the goal of finding a cure for diabetes, one being the American Diabetes Association, which is acknowledged as being the nation’s leading nonprofit health organization providing diabetes research, information and advocacy. Association’s mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and also to help the lives of those suffering from the condition as well as their friends and families.
They are constantly working and aspiring to find a diabetes cure in every way that they can, and this includes their basic support and clinical diabetes research aimed at preventing, treating, and curing diabetes. Most of the diabetes research projects that they support cover the spectrum from islet cell biology and transplantation techniques to studies in education and behavioral issues.
Another major organization working towards finding a diabetes cure is the Diabetes Research Information Center. They offer a range of diabetes information on their website, including about how research has shown that conflicting side-effects can occur with standard treatments and how these side-effects will differ depending on the particular treatment used.
