Therapy and Treatment of Diabetes

Depending on what type of diabetes you have, blood sugar monitoring, insulin and oral medications may play a role in your treatment.
Pancreas Transplantation: In some people who have type 1 diabetes, a pancreas transplant may be an option. Islet transplants are being studied as well. With a successful pancreas transplant.
Artificial pancreas is a man-made device that is designed to release insulin in response to changing blood glucose levels in a similar way to a human pancreas. Artificial pancreas systems are being studied as a possible treatment option for people with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
Intensive insulin management and insulin pump therapy allow greater opportunity to take control of diabetes but, because they are a more expensive option than injections, eligibility criteria exists to ensure the most suitable candidates have access to insulin pump therapy.
Oral Medication and Pharmacotherapy  : Sometimes other oral or injected medications are prescribed as well. Some diabetes medications stimulate your pancreas to produce and release more insulin. Others inhibit the production and release of glucose from your liver, which means you need less insulin to transport sugar into your cells like metmorphin, Actos(Pioglitazone), Byetta, Forxiga, Januvia. Type 1 diabetes always requires insulin therapy, and will not respond to insulin-stimulating oral drugs.
Adjusting Basal and Bolus Insulin Doses: Adjusting insulin dosage is a skill which takes time to develop and comes through understanding. Recording your numbers is well advised for making dosage change decisions.
Encapsulated islet cells can be likened to an advanced form of transplantation but has the distinct advantage that the treatment does not require the recipient to take immunosuppressive drugs.
Benefits of encapsulated islet cells: If encapsulated islet cells prove to work in humans as well as is hoped, they could produce the following benefits:
•           Prevent too high and low sugar levels from occurring
•           Eliminate the need to take insulin, say by injections or insulin pump
•           Prevent the need for daily blood glucose tests
Whilst not strictly a cure, but rather a treatment, encapsulated islet cells would represent a near cure experience that could see people control their diabetes with minimal management for many months. Benefits expected by cell therapy:
  • Prevent too high and low sugar levels from occurring
  • Eliminate the need to take insulin, say by injections or insulin pump
  • Prevent the need for daily blood glucose tests.
