What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a health condition that results in elevated levels of blood sugar, because of an inability of the body to use glucose correctly. We mainly get glucose through diet from foods that contain starch, like bread, potatoes, and other carbohydrate-rich foods. The liver also creates glucose.
Insulin is a type of hormone that is produced by the pancreas. This hormone helps cells to convert glucose into energy. The amount of glucose in the blood is controlled by insulin. When we don’t produce enough insulin, blood sugar becomes elevated. The main symptoms associated with diabetes include thirst, excessive urination, weakness, weight loss, and blurred vision.
Type 1 diabetes is known as insulin dependent diabetes. This type is usually genetic and shows up in younger people. It is generally treated by receiving injections of insulin, managing diet, and getting enough exercise. This type happens as a result of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas being damaged.
Type 2 diabetes is known as non-insulin dependent diabetes. It usually shows up during middle to old age. It often happens from having a bad diet and from being too heavy. With this type of diabetes, some insulin is still produced. However, not enough is created for proper function. It is usually treated by managing diet and increasing physical activity. In more severe cases, insulin injections may be needed.
Both types of diabetes are serious health conditions and need to be treated and managed to maintain good health.
What is Diabetic Neuropathy?
Diabetes results in various damaging effects on the body, including coronary disease, damage to the nerves, damage to the eyes, and impaired circulation. These symptoms have been treated using magnetic therapy.
Diabetic neuropathy is a condition where nerves become damaged over time. It happens as a result of having high blood sugar untreated for extended periods. It often displays as numbness and lack of feeling in the feet. The nerve damage usually happens to both feet. Eventually, the damage can climb up the legs. The lack of sensation in the feet increases the risk of suffering injuries to them. Along with bad circulation, this can lead to ulcers and infections. People who don’t manage their diets sufficiently are at a greater risk of suffering from this condition.
Using Magnetic Therapy Insoles for Treating Diabetic Neuropathy
Many people have reported that they were able to experience an improvement in their diabetic neuropathy by using magnetic therapy insoles. Magnetic insoles contain flexible rubber magnets that are formed around a shoe insole. Magnetic therapy insoles should have a Gauss rating of 20,000 or more. Since these insoles have been designed to provide healing magnetic fields over the entire foot, they create one, continuous magnetic field. This magnetic field, if created by strong enough magnets, can actually provide magnetic healing up to the lower leg. These magnetic healing devices are powerful enough to provide deep penetration of magnetic fields into the feet.
Experimental studies designed to measure the effects of magnetic therapy insoles on individuals with diabetic neuropathy, found that the vast majority of individuals benefited from improved blood circulation, as well as increased feeling in the feet. Magnetic therapy insoles have been found to measurably increase and promote blood flow to the feet and lower legs.
This increase in the amount of blood flow to these areas can help promote healing of damaged nerves. This leads to increased feeling. It has been reported that people have used magnetic insoles to reduce pain, prickling, and numbness. Some people have reported feelings of heat in their feet, almost immediately after using magnetic healing insoles. For best results, one should wear these insoles as much as possible, so that maximum healing benefits can be felt.
