(NaturalHealth365) The real story is diabetic pumps fail to treat type 2 diabetes. These mechanical contraptions are not healing miracles. The bottom line is they adjust sugar levels by releasing insulin, so people can indulge in snacks and meals without eliminating the cause of their condition.
Do Insulin Pumps promote healthy living
Insulin pumps are the size of a cell phone, which automatically inject small amounts of insulin through a tiny needle under the skin. This works throughout the day to keep blood sugar at safe levels. The patient programs the device to inject additional insulin right before a meal or snack based on the amount of carbohydrates about to be consumed.
They seem like an easy and convenient way to manage sugar levels. Manage is the key word here. This kind of device will not support a healthy lifestyle for most people. We see people on all you can eat restaurants lines, on cruises, and in an office environment wearing the pumps while eating donuts, cakes, cookies, and a mile long hero.
This is not to say everyone does that, but it sure makes it easier to indulge. This may be a way to eat garbage, and forget the reason you have diabetes. Food choices are everything, this device allows obesity and cheeseburgers on a regular bases. The bottom line you become dependent on a mechanical device to do what you are capable of doing yourself.
“By using an insulin pump, you can match your insulin to your lifestyle, rather than adjusting your lifestyle to your body’s response to insulin injections.” “People of all ages with type 1 diabetes use insulin pumps, and people with type 2 diabetes have started to use them as well.” This is quote from the American Diabetes Association.
Faulty devices sold to the public
Federal regulators reprimanded Johnson & Johnson for selling faulty insulin pumps and delaying disclosures of serious injuries to diabetics using them.
In a warning letter posted online by the FDA, the agency wrote that J & J Animas Corp never reported on one case of serious patient injury and delayed reporting on two others. These patients were hospitalized with dangerously high blood sugar, respiratory failure and coma, and a life-threatening complication called diabetic ketoaciddosis that’s caused by lack of insulin to break down blood sugar.
The company said it didn’t report the three patient incidents to the FDA as required within 30 days because they involved patients not using the pumps according to directions. In another separate issue, some of the pumps keypads for controlling how much insulin is injected have been deteriorating prematurely, leading to pump failure.
The bottom line is upgrades of mechanical devices will not make up for eating healthy, exercising and taking control of your own life. The first line of defense is the body’s own natural healing abilities when given the right tools. An insulin pump is not a healing tool.
Type 2 diabetes is a disease of modern living, and the insulin pump is the answer in America. What is forgotten is everything you eat your life depends on. By eliminating that from the equation, the insulin pump may be doing as much harm as good.
