Diabetes mellitus is the most acute medical and social problem related to the priorities of national health systems of virtually all countries of the world. The urgency of the problem is determined by the prevalence of this disease, high mortality and early disability of patients.
Currently there are about 160 million people with diabetes. Every 15 years, that number doubled, and by 2010, according to forecasts, will reach 239.3 million in Russia with diabetes mellitus affects about 8 million people. In the structure of endocrine diseases diabetes makes up 60-70% of cases. Its characteristic is hyperglycemia, a violation of all types of metabolism due to absolute or relative deficiency of insulin, which ultimately leads to the defeat of all functional systems of the body.
In diabetes mellitus in first place on the frequency of lesions is the cardiovascular system, and the risk of death from myocardial infarction or other vascular accident is 4-5 times higher than in the general population. Serious complication are also occlusive vascular limbs, which often lead to the development of gangrene and amputation. It is known that more than 50% of all cases of lower limb amputations due to diabetes.
In this disease there are two types of vascular lesion: large - the macro-angiopathy and small - microangiopathy. The most severe clinical signs of diabetes developing in the presence of microangiopathy in the retina and kidney. Diabetic retinopathy is 2-4% leads to blindness, nephropathy and subsequently - to kidney failure. Macroangiopathy mainly characterized by atherosclerosis, due to impaired lipid metabolism.
To prevent severe complications of diabetes and stabilization of the disease, patients should receive adequate systemic therapy aimed at normalizing glucose and other types of exchange and to improve microcirculation in the tissues.
Phytotherapeutic means having a mild and versatile effect, can be used along with diet and drugs, with the expectation of possible reduction in dosages of medications, provision of more long-term remission, prevention of complications.
For prevention and treatment of diabetic angiopathies of the observed I 11 patients receiving biologically active additives (BAA firm ARTLIFE) MEMORY RISE: 1 tablet 2 times a day for 1 month.
Bioadditive MEMORY RISE - is a complex product made from natural raw materials, which has a positive effect on various types of metabolism and improve the trophic tissue. The composition of the drug include: gums, b-carnitine, essential amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, folic acid, minerals. Extract of Ginkgo biloba and other herbal ingredients of this dietary supplement beneficial effect on the state of the vascular wall and blood rheology.
8 patients had improved overall condition, reduced pain in the calf muscles, the feeling of crawling and chilly feet, headaches and tinnitus, improved eyesight.
In 3 patients the improvement was less pronounced, and they were involved in preparations of lipoic acid.
There was a good tolerability MEMORY RISE all patients.
Thus, BAA ART LIFE MEMORY RISE can be used effectively in the treatment of diabetes as an adjunct for the prevention of vascular complications.
It is known that the vast majority of diabetic patients will develop chronic pyelonephritis, often with the presence of uric acid concretions. These patients received treatment BAD ARTLIFE RENSEPT (1 tablet 3 times daily for 2-3 months). The drug has a good litoliticheskim (due to the presence therein of juniper and cranberry), diuretic and anti-inflammatory action (due to the bearberry leaf, watermelon, dandelion root and licorice) contains potassium to maintain normal water and salt balance, and vitamin C as ascorbate, which having a neutral pH, does not create an acidic environment in the urine.
In diabetes often suffer from liver - developed fatty degeneration. In order to protect the liver cells, their recovery, stabilization of metabolic processes patients received dietary supplement company ARTLIFE HEPAR Formula (1 tablet 2 times a day), which contains phospholipids, vitamin B6, methionine, milk thistle, thistle. In conjunction with the BAA ARTLIFE TOKSFIGHTER showed improvement in treatment effect.
In the presence of atherosclerosis patients received supplements LECITHIN, alone and in combination with ESSENTSIAL OIL. The same patients were recommended Vitamin E and COMPLEX WITH VITAMIN "C".
When hypertension using biologically active additive BP FORMULA 1 capsule 2 times daily with meals. As a general tonic funds administered phytocomplex DISCOVERY DISCOVERY OR CHARM POWER (1-2 tablets per day), which contains nearly the full range of vitamins and minerals, culture eubioticheskih bacteria, essential and nonessential amino acids, antioxidants (piknogenol, cysteine, selenium), digestive enzymes (bromelain, pancreatin, lipase), and medicinal plants, most of which has a hypoglycemic effect. The next group of patients in treatment who used BAA ARTLIFE, has thyroid cancer, which occupies a central place in clinical endocrinology and the prevalence of divides "palm" with diabetes. The significance of this pathology is particularly increased in recent years due to the increase in IDD, pollution.
More than 1.5 billion people on Earth there is widespread risk of inadequate intake of iodine, 65 million people have thyroid enlargement (endemic goiter), and 43 million - severe mental retardation due to iodine deficiency (WHO, 1994).
Iodine is a trace elements nutrition: the daily need for it is 100-200 mg; in a lifetime a person consumes only 3-5 grams (a teaspoon) of iodine. Iodine deficiency has often outwardly express. The most obvious manifestation of its deficit - endemic goiter, which is a predisposing factor for the development of many diseases of the thyroid, including nodular tumors and cancer.
Iodine deficiency increases the incidence of congenital hypothyroidism leads to irreversible damage of the brain in the fetus and the newborn, leading to mental retardation.
Iodine deficiency is the most common form of mental retardation, which can be prevented.
The best source of micronutrients and vitamins are a variety of plants, as they usually do not cause side effects, even in excess.
I was selected group of patients out of 24 people, who for the prevention of iodine deficiency disorders, treatment of endemic goiter I degree (8 pers.) And subclinical hypothyroidism (5 pers.), As a single agent was used supplements ARTLIFE Green Star - biologically active supplement containing organic iodine , extracted from marine algae. All patients to the drug were investigated (ultrasound thyroid TSH and free T4 TK; antibody to peroxidase). The drug was administered for 4-6 months to 2 capsules per day in the absence of contraindications (increased function gl.thyroidea).
In 4 patients had focal changes in the structure of the thyroid gland by ultrasound: small cysts, areas of compaction (with normal levels of antibodies to peroxidase), colloid formation is less than 1 cm
In the presence of II degree of increase in thyroid cancer with subclinical hypothyroidism (4 people) and hypothyroidism moderate (3 people) drug Green Star was used in combination with hormone b-thyroxine. While taking the drug in patients noted improvement in general condition, the feeling of discomfort in his neck, returned to normal work of the digestive system.
According to the results of ultrasound in 3 patients disappeared focal changes in the structure of the thyroid gland in 5 - its total volume decreased to normal in 3 patients with Grade II to increase the volume of the thyroid gland decreased to I degree. In subclinical hypothyroidism, TSH level in 4 patients came to the norm, one patient was transferred to the receiving thyroxine 50 mcg in combination with 1 capsule of Green Star. Hypothyroid moderate severity was noted improvement in TSH without increasing the dose of thyroxine. Increased titer of antibody to peroxidase were not detected.
Thus, BAA Green Star has no negative effects on the thyroid gland and can be recommended as an effective means of prevention of IDD and its related diseases and in adjuvant therapy in patients with thyroid cancer.
In the presence of patients with hyperthyroidism as a means of regulating the central nervous system (CNS), slowing heart rate, normalizes blood pressure, has a good sedative effect and strengthens the energy metabolism, may be recommended supplements ARTLIFE NEYROSTABIL (1 tablet 2 times a day) . After surgical treatment of thyroid good effect was the use of dietary supplements ARTLIFE CHARM OR DISCOVERY DISCOVERY POWER (1-2 tablets per day for 1 month).
For the normalization of metabolic processes, improve gastrointestinal (GI) recovery of intestinal microflora, providing daily needs of vitamins and micro-and macro-elements, proteins, to improve the metabolism of cell membranes, enhancing the vascular system and to normalize the immune system assigns such BAA, as a complex with vitamin C, beta carotene, vitamin E, Kaltsimaks, NEYROSTRONG, laminarin, cat's claw.
Thus, for the prevention, comprehensive treatment of diabetes, its complications and comorbidities, as well as for the integrated treatment of thyroid cancer by ARTLIFE provided a wide range of dietary supplements that have a positive effect and good tolerability.
