MANAGING TYPE 2 DIABETES & ITS NEUROPATHIC COMPLICATIONS, NATURALLY

TYPE II DIABETES

  • Diabetes is a problem with your body that causes blood glucose levels to rise higher than normal. This is also called hyperglycemia. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes.
  • Cause of Diabetes: If you have type 2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it isn’t able to keep up and can’t make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels.

  • Complications associated with diabetes: Diabetes increases your risk for many serious health problems e. complications such as eye complications (eye damage, vision loss, etc), skin complications (bacterial & fungal infection), kidney failure, cardiovascular diseases (heart problems) and neuropathy (nerve damage from diabetes is called diabetic neuropathy). But, with the correct treatment and recommended lifestyle changes, many people with diabetes are able to prevent or delay the onset of complications.

DIABETIC NEUROPATHY (NERVE DAMAGE)

  • Diabetic neuropathy is a serious complication, where in long term diabetes causes nerve damage. About half of all people with diabetes have some form of diabetic neuropathy. Most common nerve damage with the loss of feeling and pain occurs in the legs, feet, toes, arms and hands. This damage is painful and can cause peripheral neuropathy (can cause tingling, pain, numbness, or weakness in your feet and hands), autonomic neuropathy (affects those nerves in the body that control body pain).

  • Cause of diabetic neuropathy: Diabetes induced oxidative stress is the major cause of nerve cell damage leading to diabetic neuropathy. This can be handled if food or diet rich in the components which can fight against the oxidative stress e. antioxidants is consumed.
  • Diagnosis with common tests: Diabetic neuropathy can be detected by regular foot exams which are to be done each year in patients with diabetes to test pressure sensation, temperature perception, and vibration perception. Nerve conduction velocity tests are also done which record the speed with which the nerves send messages and Electromyogram which checks how nerves & muscles work together.

Fenugreek effectiveness in diabetic neuropathy

It is established that fenugreek seed extract has anti-diabetic effects through several pathways, such as restoring pancreatic β cell function and inhibiting sucrase and alpha-amylase activities. Beside these properties, Fenugreek is reported to have very strong anti oxidant activity as well as neuro protective activity.

It is reported that constituents of fenugreek  may elevate expression of Nerve growth factors (NGF) and brain derived neurotropic factors (BDNF) resulting is protection of nerves cells from oxidative damage and repair of damaged nerves.

FenfuroTM  is a patented and clinically evaluated product for safe and effective management of blood sugar levels. Fenfuro is a first of its kind, safenutraceutical derived from fenugreek seeds through a patented process. Through its unique scientific process, FENFURO concentrates the bioactive part of plants into a manageable dose, while removing the inert parts such as cellulose. Also, since a lot of healthy botanicals are not palatable, consuming their concentrate in capsule form in small dosage is a lot easier. FENFURO contains a rich variety of saponins and flavonoids. These substances are known to lower blood lipid level and help in insulin sensitization and glucose regulation. FENFURO is the first dual action insulin sensitizer.

A clinical evaluation of FENFURO was carried out on a total of 154 Type 2 diabetics for a period of 3 months, to determine its efficacy and safety. At the end of three months 83% of the patients reported decrease in fasting sugar levels and89% patients reported decrease in PP sugar levels. The patients also showed significant decrease in HbA1C levels as compared to respective baseline value. 48.8% of patients reported reduction in dosage of anti-diabetic therapy after regularly taking FENFURO
