Diabetics find hope in every new research on the topic and hope that one day science will find a solution for this difficult condition. Today we’re bringing good news to diabetics across the globe and we hope to make some people happier.
One recent study developed a pill that can help in the treatment of type 2 diabetes and help diabetics lose some weight. The pill is called Semaglutide and the study revealed that it helped 71% of all the test subjects to drop weight.
This revelation is huge as every treatment for diabetes so far has caused nothing but weight gain. And we all know that diabetics struggle with issue a lot.
The new pill eliminates the need for insulin shots as it stabilizes your blood sugar levels and it will be available on the market in just 3 years.
Type 2 diabetes is a result of elevated blood sugar levels which the body cannot turn into energy. As time passes by the condition is aggravated and it’s most commonly diagnosed in people who are overweight or obese. People who suffer from type 2 diabetes need to watch their sugar intake if they want to stay healthy and prevent complications.
The Statistics on Diabetes
Statistics show that on a global level, more than 415 million people suffer from diabetes, a staggering information! What’s even worse is that this number continues to rise and will most likely reach even higher levels. If left untreated, diabetes can lead to blindness, heart failure and leg amputations, all very serious side-effects with deadly consequences. Diabetes is a major cause for concern but the NHS chooses to sit still and watch as millions of people worldwide struggle with this disease.
The lead professor Melanie Davies believes that this new pill will provide great relief for people who aren’t comfortable with injecting themselves with insulin, as there are many who struggle with this. She further says that many of her patients find it difficult to inject themselves with insulin so takin their therapy orally will be amazingly easier. And since this is the first good news on diabetes in years, we’re thrilled to watch the progress.
Diabetes is a life-threatening condition with severe health complications and is a great challenge for many people across the globe. The treatment for diabetes has been the same since forever, so developing something new could potentially change the lives of people suffering from it. And knowing that the numbers are just getting higher is all the more worrisome. Bottom of Form
The study’s results revealed that the pill can significantly lower the HbA1c and promote weight loss. It also stimulates the production of insulin and suppresses the glucagon secretion, a hormone that raises your glucose levels. Moreover, the pill suppresses your appetite as well.
In addition to lowering their weight, the study subjects significantly reduced their HbA1C levels, the way in which blood glucose is measured over time.
9/10ths of the study subjects recorded a less than 7% of HbA1C; a healthy person has less than 6% of HbA1C. These results are excellent news for the entire medical community and we hope that the pill will be available soon and everyone can take advantage of the benefits it offers.
