Therapy of diabetes mellitusThe diabetes mellitus is incurable disease that is why patients should be ready for therapy every moment. The key to success lies in finding of set of methods that will improve the diabetics' health.

Main objective in diabetes mellitus treatment is to normalize the blood sugar level and concentration in the body. However, the methods of treatment are not limited only with listed above.

The fundamental principle is in eliminating of disease causes and conditions that help the development of diabetes. The second principle is breaking of pathological liaisons formed in the course of the disease (metabolism correction, extreme condition avoidance). As a rule, after long and correctly chosen treatment the disease picture looks better. The third principle is to apply therapy for conditions and symptoms appeared in result of diabetes mellitus development (headache, skin problems, weak sight, digestive disorders).

Present-day on diabetics' problems is focused the great attention of specialists. Rehabilitation of patient that has diabetes mellitus should consist of array of social, psychological and physical measures targeted to improve the life quality of patient.

The diabetics treatment includes phytotherapy, insulin therapy, hirudotherapy, ozone therapy, drug therapy, physical therapy, urinotherapy, psychotherapy and fluid therapy.


Phytotherapy is applied successfully for diabetes treatment. Botanical medicinal plants are sources of safe medications, having no problematic chemicals. The plant materials are consumed as extracts and herbal teas. To use the plants properly you should know what parts of every plant contain required substances as well as there are specific periods for harvesting of plants, making tea of them and extract production from plants. The widespread in use plants are leaves of birch, bilberries, black-currant, blackberries, mint nettle, ribwort, burdock, chicory, peavine, hypericum. In spite of phytotherapy efficacy diabetics should not give up using drugs prescribed by the doctor or replace them with plants completely.

Insulin Therapy

Insulin is the pancreatic hormone that helps to deliver glucose to body cells, which is the main energy source. Insulin cannot be digested by the stomach, therefore it must be injected 'as is' with a special syringe, having the finest needle. Because personal level of insulin is not common for all patients and it must be detected in the medical laboratory. According to the results, an endocrinologist prescribes the type of insulin (animal or human) as well as its dosage. Insulin effect may be long or short. The short insulin acts faster, but for a short time, while the long one has a longer effect. The main principle of insulin therapy is injection of insulin in adequate quantities, simulating the pancreatic functioning. Doing this way, the production capacity of the main and auxiliary insulin will stay normal.


Hirudotherapy in diabetes mellitus was described long time before, but not all doctors use this method. Nonetheless, leeches improve metabolism quite well, which is highly important for diabetics. The leech saliva contains around a hundred of useful ferments, and when it contacts the blood it decreases the blood sugar level and 'bad' blood that has an excessive sugar is sucked out. Besides the direct impact to the glucose level, leeches eliminate negative effects of diabetes mellitus. To make the utmost of the therapy, the treatment should be repeated at least 10 times with up to seven leeches at a time. Every next treatment should be decided on the effect duration (usually, it happens in six-eight months).

Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy is used in diabetes treatment. Ozone is used to increase the membrane permeability and, as a result, the glucose penetration. It leads to normal glucose absorption, its full oxidation up to final decomposition, which is highly necessary for energy supply of cells for diabetics. The metabolism of oxigen is increased, when it comes to blood, and it results in effective oxigen supply to all internal organs. This improves the patients' condition, they suffer less of diabetes associated disorders. Effects of successful ozone therapy are able to decrease the blood sugar level by 20%.

Drug Therapy

Main task of drug therapy is to intensify the insulin generation and its replacement in cases, when there is a shortage of body insulin. Drug therapy started in time is able to minimize the risk of cardiovascular stresses. Drug therapy cuts down harmful effects of diabetes mellitus like sight weakness, skin problems, digestive disorders.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy has a rich inventory for treatment of diabetes mellitus. First, it is electrophoresis that refills the shortage of zinc, calcium, copper and kalium. Zinc electrophoresis stimulates own insulin generation, while kalium compensate its shortcoming due to excessive washing by urine. Calcium is used to stabilize the glycemic index. In case of complications and angiopathies, the electrophoresis is used to inject sodium thiosulfate or novocaine; in case of retinopathies, potassium iodide is used. To achieve some workable effect there must be twelve manipulations.


Urinotherapy in diabetes mellitus is a delicate question. Some experts think the placebo effect plays the key role here, rather than the positive effect of urina itself. Urine contains the required microelements, which are usually lost by the diabetics. To use the therapy effectively, patient has to drink some fresh urine or stupe it over pancreatic gland. The young child urine is the best drug here as it does not contain residues and contaminants that an adult man urina may have. Also, there are poor chances to get infected with child urina.


Psychotherapy works, first of all, as an autohypnosis in relation to the patient condition. The second stage is hypnosis, working to deliver the directions required for every diabetic. Successful therapy effect leads to a better emotional pattern, fewer stress exposures and mood swings, parients have normal blood pressure. The social effect is also important as the patients behave like normal people and live among them with no problems.

Fluid Therapy

Fluid therapy is to replenish fluids, which are lost by the diabetics. Sometimes, the figures are critical because up to one fourth of blood plasma may be washed away from the body. It is critical point to stop the body dehydration and restore the normal level of body fluids. The correct injection of medications is able to restore the blood plasma volume, water-electrolytic balance, oxigen transportation to cells as well as many other functions.
