Type 2 Diabetes Can Now be Cured Through a Wearable Device

A new wearable smart device has been developed by scientists in Japan to help obese diabetics lose fat.

The device has been developed by researchers from Kumamoto University and it attacks the visceral fat as well as improves blood glucose levels.

Type 2 diabetes occurs when excess visceral fat in a body leads to hyperglycemia, a metabolic disorder, which in turn reduces the stress resistance of the human body. This affects the ability of insulin to lower blood sugar levels.

To counter this, the heat stroke response (HSR) is activated in the human body. But obesity prevents the proteins produced from HSRs to stimulate the insulin. The research team found an effective treatment for this.

They found that a combination of mild electrical stimulation (MES) with heat shock waves works more efficiently on insulin. They developed a belt-type device which uses a special type of rubber that transmits MES and HS together. They tested this on 40 obese men suffering from type 2 diabetes. The results were positive as they showed a fall in glucose levels and loss in visceral fat. It also had a therapeutic effect on the patients.

Another clinical trial was conducted, this time on 60 obese patients, both men and women, with type 2 diabetes. The trial went on for 12 weeks. Patients were divided into 3 groups depending on a 60-minute treatment for  2, 4 and 7 sittings per week. Improvements were seen in chronic inflammation, fatty liver markers, renal function and lipid profileof patients who received the maximum sittings.

Tatsuya Kondo, who iled the research, said, “This device is very easy to use since it simply attaches to the abdomen, and it has a low-impact on the patient. One can expect the effects to be similar to exercise therapy.”

He also mentioned, “Even in patients who have difficulty exercising, such as those who are overweight, elderly, or have some form of disability, this device can be expected to provide acceptable treatment in addition to conventional diabetic medical care.”

The research was published in the journal, Scientific Reports.

    In July of 2015, it was discovered that I had type 2 diabetes. By the end of the month, I was given a prescription for Metformin. I stated the ADA diet and followed it completely for several weeks but was unable to get my blood sugar below 140. With no results to how for my hard work, I panicked and called my doctor. His response? Deal with it. I began to feel that something wasn’t right and do my own research. Then I found Rachel’s blog http://curediabetespro.gq/ . I read it from cover to cover and I started the diet and by the next morning, my blood sugar was 100. Since then, I have a fasting reading between the mid 70s and 80s. My doctor was so surprised at the results that, the next week, he took me off the Metformin. I lost 30 pounds in the first month and lost more than 6 inches off my waist and I’m able to work out twice a day while still having lots of energy. The truth is we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods.
