Diabetes mellitus, or simply diabetes, is a chronic disease with a permanent glucose metabolism disorder that leads to elevated blood glucose levels and other changes in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates.
As a result of diabetes, pathological changes may develop in the nerve fibres (diabetic neuropathy) and small blood vessels (diabetic microangiopathy).
Diabetes is caused by a lack of insulin or insulin resistance, and by changes in insulin secretion. Long-term prognosis and the quality of life of patients with diabetes depends on the development and severity of cardiovascular complications.
Complications (secondary effects) include: diabetic retinopathy, which can lead to blindness, diabetic nephropathy, which can lead to kidney disease and failure, diabetic neuropathy, which disrupts all sympathetic and parasympathetic functions, and macrovascular disease, including disorders of the peripheral arteries, cerebrovascular and ischemic heart disease.
In addition, further health impairment may occur due to hypertension, elevated cholesterol levels, obesity, and smoking.
In diabetes, low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy using a Biomag device has no effect on insulin production (even though it may have a positive effect due to regeneration in patients with a partially functioning pancreas and partial restoration of insulin production). Nevertheless, long-term use of this therapy may be highly beneficial in diabetic patients (both in paediatric diabetes and diabetes in the elderly).
Read the results of the following clinical studies that demonstrate the success rate of low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy in treatment of this condition.
