Naturally Control High Blood Sugar

Mr. R, 54 years old, has been suffering from diabetes for many years. He is currently taking a diabetes medication called Xigduo XR (dapagliflozin / sustained release metformin), every morning and evening. However this had not good enough effect on his blood sugar levels, with his morning fasting blood glucose levels consistently being 7 or higher. He then decided to try acupuncture and herb supplements as a last resort to help manage his diabetes. Upon his second visit, he told me that his blood sugar levels fell in a week. I was very happy to hear about this. Refer to the record of Mr. R in the photo. As a result of his success, his wife also came in to have her insomnia treated. Xigduo is an adjuvant drug that combines exercise and diet for adult patients suffering from type 2 diabetes who are eligible for combination therapy with dapagliflozin and metformin. Xigduo XR is a once-a-day compound monolith consisting of a fixed dosage of dapagliflozin (dapagliflozin, trade name: Forxiga) and a sustained release form of metformin hydrochloride. These two components have complementary mechanisms of action that can help improve the management of blood sugar. Dapagliflozin and canagliflozin are sodium-glucose co-transporter (SGLT2) inhibitors and are a new class of hypoglycemic agents that selectively inhibit SGLT2 in the kidneys and help patients excrete excess glucose from the urine. SGLT2 is a type of glucose transporter that is specifically distributed in the S1 segment of the proximal convoluted tubule of the kidney. Its physiological role is to promote the reabsorption of glucose in the glomerulus. Compared with non-diabetic people, kidneys in patients with type 2 diabetes can reabsorb large amounts of glucose into the bloodstream, which may push up blood sugar levels. Metformin is the first line of treatment for type 2 diabetes and can be administered alone or in combination with other drugs, including insulin. In patients with type 2 diabetes, the liver produces excess glucose, which increases blood sugar levels.
Metformin can reduce the body’s blood sugar level by reducing the amount of glucose produced by the liver, increasing muscle sensitivity to glucose, delaying glucose absorption in the intestine. The above western medicine treatment inhibits the absorption of sugar at the level of the kidney and the intestine, and inhibits the release of sugar at the level of the liver to achieve the purpose of lowering blood sugar. Diabetes in the theory of Chinese medicine seems to be a problem at the cellular level, due to the transportation of sugars being weak!
Chinese medicine treats diabetes by promoting transportation. It is reflected in the transport of sugar between the cell and the vascular tissue, as well as the energy utilization of the sugar by the subcellular organelles such as the mitochondria. Through the removal of dampness and lipid-lowering, there is a decrease in the barriers preventing sugar from entering the cell. Chinese medicine can also enhance receptor sensitivity, enhance cell viability, improve cell sugar metabolism independent of insulin, improve cell sensitivity to insulin repair, and provide a hypoglycemic effect. It is said that treating diabetes from the cellular level is better compared to the treatment of any other levels. This is reflected by the improvements in the patient’s blood sugar and physical strength which may fundamentally solve the problem of metabolic diseases.
