insulin can help you control high blood sugar levels if you have any. But there is truly no treatment out there that can clean you of diabetes. Benefits of controlling diabetes:
• Five extra years of life • Five more years of eyesight • Six years free from kidney disease • Six years free from amputations and nerve damage • Enjoy a better quality of life Life experiences (diabetics perspective): my dad was diagnosed in 2012; he has been living with it for almost a year and has had to adapt not only his eating habits but his entire life style. For the first month of being diagnosed he was on insulin considering he was having problems controlling his high blood sugars. Once when he realized what the side effects are of using insulin and how much it hurts the human body, he tried to get off of it as fast as possible and succeeded. He had to change his diet, organize more exercises and he need to be extra careful about hurting his feet, toes and hands because of the lack of circulation. Pictures: Sources/easy bib info:
