Introduction and description

Joerg Peter Hamann

There are two main types of diabetes - Diabetes mellitus and Diabetes insipidus

Despite having a similar name they are unrelated diseases with different causes. 

This page describes the pharmaceuticals used to treat Diabetes mellitus.

Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar. 

This is generally a result of:

  • Damage to the pancreas - Insulin is produced in the pancreas and is the hormone regulating glucose levels.  Low levels of circulating insulin, or its absence, will prevent glucose from entering cells, any cells.  This is known as Type 1 Diabetes.  
  • Cell damage - Alternatively there may be a decrease in the sensitivity of cells to insulin, resulting in decreased glucose absorption.  This is known as Type 2 Diabetes

They are treated differently because their causes are different. 

Type 1 Diabetes treatments

 

 

Type 1 diabetes is caused by damage to the pancreas. 

Thus the first step is to find out what damaged the pancreas, as although Insulin can be provided, the pancreas may simply get more damaged over time and the condition get worse unless you know why. 

The section on Diabetes mellitus describes some of the causes, as does that for Pancreas disease in general,  but briefly the pancreas and its insulin producing cells can be damaged by

 

  • Stress
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Alcohol -Some cases are caused by alcohol [in excess]
  • Waxed fruit and vegetables, and the emulsifiers used in some chocolate candies, and vitamin pills
  • Taking drugs
  • Toxins – including lead and the mercury in dental amalgam fillings
  • Viruses
  • Vaccines
  • Nutritional deprivation - overdose - too much protein, fat and the use of mineral and vitamin supplements; or simply too little of the essential minerals  and vitamins needed for repair.  One known mineral which does truly severe damage to the pancreas in excess is iron.  The two most common causes of iron imbalance. are iron tablets and lack of roughage in the diet

  • Parasites – Numerous parasites are implicated, however, Toxoplasmosis is a common cause. This parasite infects most genera of warm-blooded animals, but the primary host is the cat - see Being with cats.  Another serious carrier of parasites is the fox which spreads Echinococcosis.
  • Fungal infection
  • Bacterial infection - There are very clear links between pancreatic damage and bacterial infection.
  • Radiation - All radiation whether 'cosmic' or electromagnetic impacts our bodies and depending on its frequency it resonates different parts of us.  And long term exposure at the resonating frequency, or short term high intensity exposure can damage the pancreas. 
  • Physical injury and surgery - Injury as a result of some form of physical trauma or surgery which affects the pancreas or liver may result in damage to the insulin producing cells.
  • Genetic damage -  which can be caused by nanoparticles 

It may be possible to stop the rot, as it were, once you know the cause, but regeneration of the damaged cells in the pancreas may be impossible.

Type 1 Diabetes drugs

 

The standard treatment for Diabetes mellitus type 1 -  a condition caused by the lack of insulin - is Insulin, which must be injected. 

The drugs used are called Natural Insulin products.

Insulin is thus a life saver for many people.

If the cause is not addressed, there may be ongoing damage of the cells of the pancreas and as such a 'standard dose' of insulin, in other words one which remains unvaried over time cannot be given. Overall, it may be very difficult to get the dose right.  And both under-dose and over-dose can produce spiritual experiences ranging from hallucination to out of body and near death, depending on how serious the under-dose or overdose actually is.

 Type 2 diabetes treatments

Type 2 diabetes is caused by cell damage of some sort.  There may be a decrease in the sensitivity of cells to insulin, resulting in decreased glucose absorption, by cells and a corresponding increase of glucose in the blood.

Again you need to know the cause.

Diet and lifestyle adjustments - If we tackle the most obvious cause first, this is essentially  Nutritional deprivation - overdose of carbohydrates and sugars in particular, but overdose in general.  Too much going in with no exercise will result in too much glucose in the blood stream.

Where the damage to the cells has simply been caused by an overdose of glucose caused by consumption of too much carbohydrate and sugars, for example, it is possible to 'cure' or at least help the cells to recover by adopting a different diet and exercising more.

The receptors on the cells may [or may not] adjust over time to recover.  It depends on just how much damage has been done and over what period.  If you think of sugar/glucose like any drug, if we take an overdose of a drug for any length of time, the body adjusts the number of receptors to accomodate the change, thus too much sugar/glucose will  cause a reduction in the number of receptors.

To recover there has to be a very slow process of sugar and glucose withdrawal.  Slow because if it is not slow, appalling withdrawal symptoms may result, simply because the cells have adapted to shut out the glucose. 

Once we reduce the amount of sugar, or the foods that supply sugar - glucose - then we are in a sense suffering from withdrawal symptoms because our cells have become adjusted to deal with the overdose levels.   This is why people get sugar cravings - sugar is like a drug in this respect.  Crash diets are dangerous for this reason, the cells become totally starved of any input.  If you give the cells virtually no glucose, you could cause organ failure.  And one organ to fail might be the heart.

 

Stress...... high emotion.... trauma ......

Other causes - what else can damage the cells and make them unreceptive to insulin or glucose?  Again, if we turn back to the page on diabetes mellitus, we can see that in summary the main causes are almost identical to those for pancreatic damage, thus:

If you know the cause, you should be able to adjust your lifestyle accordingly.  Either you remove yourself from the cause - the radiation, the toxins, the pharmaceuticals - or you boost your immune system to help it to deal with the viruses, bacteria, fungi or toxins that have gained entry.  

sun, relaxaion  and exercise ... good medicine
all she needs is a friend .....

This is done by good food, laughter, friendship and company [love] , hobbies, fresh air and light exercise, communing with nature and so on - all the suppression actions.

  • Eating for health is key DO NOT USE VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS OR MINERAL SUPPLEMENTS.  It is a key method of boosting the immune system.
  • Exercising and keeping fit - keeps the metabolism active
  • Sleep as much as you can - Sleeping has a number of functions.  One is the defragging of memory, another is learning from the perceptions gathered during the waking period, but the third purpose of sleep is healing.  
  • Sun - one key vitamin often lacking in all western cultures is Vitamin D.  It is possible to get Vitamin D from cod liver oil, but the ideal is to go out in the sun as often as you can.  Every little helps, so even an hour or so's exposure can make all the difference.

And you remove yourself from the cause of stress too, perhaps by changing jobs, or hobby or by adopting some of the suppression activities I have on this site.

Type 2 Diabetes Drugs

 

 

All the drugs provided to treat diabetes caused by cell mal-function  - diabetes type 2 -  assume that one does not try to find the cause first. 

In effect they treat the symptoms not the cause

Understanding this is key, because in the first place the cause, unless found and tackled, will simply continue to produce more problems and secondly none of the drugs 'cure' you.

They may have a use as part of overall palliative care whilst the cause is being investigated, but as a long term treatment they are not the answer.

Diabetes mellitus type 2 medications theoretically lower glucose levels in the blood. All are administered orally and are thus also called oral hypoglycemic agents or oral antihyperglycemic agents. There are different classes of drugs.

  • Sulphonylurea derivatives act by increasing insulin release from the beta cells in the pancreas - these are clearly of little use if the pancreas is being damaged by the same agents that have damaged the cells, but if the pancreas is relatively healthy they will work for a while.  Overuse of any organ over time, however, will exhaust it and this includes the pancreas   More details can be found in the science section.  Examples
    • First generation – Carbutamide, Acetohexamide, Chlorpropamide, Tolbutamide
    • Second generation – Glipizide, Gliclazide, Glibenclamide (glyburide), Glibornuride, Gliquidone, Glisoxepide, Glyclopyramide
    • Third generation - Glimepiride
  • Thiazolidinediones -  act as insulin sensitizers in a cell - agents which increase the sensitivity of target organs to insulin.  Also known as glitazones, they were introduced in the late 1990s.  More details can be found in the science section.  This class of drugs has not been without its problems and few are left on the market.  Chemically, the members of this class are derivatives of the parent compound thiazolidinedione, and include:
    • Rosiglitazone (Avandia), which was withdrawn from the market in Europe due to ‘an increased risk of cardiovascular events’.  It is prescribed in the USA
    • Pioglitazone (Actos), France and Germany have suspended its sale due to the risk of bladder cancer. It is prescribed in the USA
    • Lobeglitazone (Duvie), approved for use in Korea
    • Troglitazone (Rezulin), which was withdrawn from the market due to an increased incidence of drug-induced hepatitis.
  • The biguanide class of anti-diabetic drugs, originates from the French lilac (Galega officinalis), a plant used in folk medicine for several centuries. Biguanides reduce hepatic glucose output and increase uptake of glucose by the periphery, including skeletal muscle. There were three main drugs within this category
    • Metformin (Glucophage).
    • Phenformin (DBI) which was withdrawn.
    • Buformin also withdrawn.

All classes of these drugs can produce hallucinations and other spiritual experiences - mostly hallucinations.

How it works

Accidental over dose – usually in the early stages of application or when drug interactions occur produce hypoglycaemia – a lower than normal level of blood sugar/glucose. A description of how this works to provide these experiences is provided in a separate section in the ‘illnesses’ subsection.

Similarly it is also possible that the dose is not high enough in which case the hyperglycaemia stays and the person obtains the experiences via this route – again this is described in a separate section.

 

Observations

The table below provides a summary of the number of hallucinations from each of the drugs in the observation list that follows, the figures were correct as at 2010.  Please note that the observations include those for the drugs below but also some natural products for which scientific data exists on Pubmed to show their efficacy in healing diabetes.  I have provided a link to the drug side-effects on ehealthme so that you can obtain data on both the curent hallucination figures and see all the side-effects of each drug.
