Üsküdar University NPİSTANBUL Hospital, Internal Medicine Specialist Prof. Dr. Aytaç Atamer stated that the incidence of diabetes, popularly known as diabetes, is increasing rapidly as malnutrition and inactivity become widespread, and noted that while diabetes threatens people of all age groups, one person dies every 6 seconds in the world due to diabetes-related problems.
Atamer also pointed out that the World Diabetes Federation predicts that there will be 2040 million diabetic patients worldwide in 650, and that there are also 320 million prediabetes in the world, also known as hidden diabetes.
“A complete recovery cannot be achieved in diabetes”
Explaining that diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin or the body cannot use it properly, glucose accumulates in the bloodstream and blood sugar rises, Atamer said:
“Type 10 diabetes patients can be treated successfully if drug-free treatment for diabetes is achieved and weight control, especially up to 2 percent, is achieved during the early diagnosis period. But a complete cure for the disease cannot be achieved. For diabetic patients, treatment is determined according to the patient's condition. "There is no natural product yet to treat diabetes."
