Treating Diabetes and its Complications
Treating Diabetes with Benfotiamine
So far, the best way to deal with diabetes is to regulate it properly. Modern drugs that contribute to the metabolic regulation of diabetes, such as metformin that reduces insulin resistance, are effective and have minimal side effects.
As a result, physicians focused on regulating blood glucose levels often overlook an equally important need to protect against the common complications of diabetes such as blindness, stroke, endothelial dysfunction, and loss of limbs.
Benfotiamine is a less known fat-soluble form of vitamin B1. Because its form is liposoluble, it can be absorbed much better than simple water-soluble vitamin B1.
Benfotiamine has been shown to help prevent growth, but also to deal with many diabetic complications. While it is now classified as a critical nutrient for those who seek to prevent the potentially deadly effects of persistently high blood sugar levels.
It has been used since the 1960s in Japan to treat diabetic neuropathy. In Europe, it has been used for 10 years as a prescription drug because it improves the progression of diabetic nerve, kidney and retinal lesions and alleviates the painful symptoms of diabetic neuropathy.
In fact, researchers in Germany are using benfotiamine to help patients with diabetic neuropathy, sciatica and other nerve-related conditions.
Diabetic neuropathy affects the nerves that carry messages to the brain as well as the functioning of the vessels at the extremities. The result of this pathological damage to blood vessels is numbness and painful tingling of the extremities, especially of the feet, which can eventually lead to amputation.
Many people suffering from diabetic neuropathy, which they face with either classic or alternative drugs, never feel complete relief from the painful symptoms they experience and make their daily lives difficult.
With benfotiamine, however, the lesions stop worsening, and they can gradually begin repairing!
The liposomal formula of benfotiamine is ideal for prevention, but for the treatment of complications of diabetes mellitus.
- protects fine nervous tissue and brain tissue
- Optimizes endothelial and vascular function
- Reduces the risk of heart disease and supports the function of muscle cells in the heart
- Promotes kidney health, preventing diabetic neuropathy
- Helps prevent or delay the development of diabetic retinopathy, leading to loss of vision.
