Control of Juvenile Diabetes Mellitus txt

Diabetes mellitus type 1 or juvenile diabetes,  is a form of diabetes mellitus that  results from depletion of insulin producing beta cells of the pancreas. It exists in two states.

1. Juvenile
2. Adult (LADA) (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults)

Some factors which influence diabetes evolution;
1. Juvenile diabetes is a childhood disease.
2. Not all beta cells are depleted.
3. Juvenile diabetes is a partial insulin deficiency.
4. As child grows, its beta cells multiply in it.
5. LADA started in childhood.
6. Evolution of diabetes has two goals. First to protect the brain and then other organs.

While correct treatment requires that all factors be considered, most are ignored. Current treatment is not optimal and even harmful.

Juvenile diabetes proceeds  through two periods:
1. Partial insulin deficiency and adequate control of diabetes.
2. Total insulin deficiency when blood sugar control fluctuates, and is associated with hypoglycaemic bouts.

False treatment  promotes the transition from partial to complete insulin deficiency .

Hyperglycemia  is a stimulus with two functions:
1. To secrete (internal)  insulin and 
2. To boost beta cell proliferation.
Therefore: When treating juvenile hyperglycemia maintain a slight hyperglycemia.

Current treatment of juvenile diabetes is false for the following reasons:
1. While juvenile diabetes starts as partial insulin deficiency, medicine treats it as if it were a total deficiency. Beta cell proliferation stops.
2. Actually juvenile diabetes is a relative deficiency.. During the day, organ demand fluctuates, while  long acting  insulin  release is constant. When demand declines, child becomes hypoglycaemic and its brain suffers.

Treatment of juvenile diabetes illustrates a major  flaw in the  current medical theory. Medicine does not understand organism’s optimality, and lacks concepts to handle it.
