Making the Connection - Aloe Vera and Diabetes

produce any or enough insulin. This leads to an excess of sugar in your blood. Insulin
is a hormone that's produced by your pancreas and it helps the cells of your body
use the glucose (sugar) in food. Your cells need this energy in order to function
properly. If you don't get enough insulin, or it's function is weakened, such as in
diabetes, the glucose can't be used as fuel for your cells. Sugar builds up in your
blood stream and is passed through your urine. The hyperglycemia (high blood
sugar) caused by excessive glucose in your blood can eventually lead to many
complications, especially for your eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart and blood vessels.

Making The Connection
People with diabetes should be excited by the prospect that aloe vera can potentially
replace other drugs that may sometimes have harsh side effects. Additionally, the
use of many diabetic medicines increase the likelihood of heart attacks and strokes.
Diabetics have a 250 percent increased rate of strokes over non diabetics. Now it
seems you may be able to significantly reduce that risk with the use of a miracle
plant called aloe vera.

Aloe Vera and Diabetes
Research has shown that aloe can be part of the answer in helping to control
diabetes. It seems that this plant can improve blood sugar and triglyceride (fat) levels
in your blood. For this reason, it can potentially be helpful for people with type 2
diabetes whose bodies still produce some insulin. For these clinical studies, the
treatment of diabetes was to take 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of aloe juice twice a day.
When you are inflicted with diabetes, you may find that when you receive wounds to
your skin, they don't heal as fast as non diabetics. Because of it's healing properties,
you can also use aloe vera topically to treat these wounds and it can spread up the
healing process.

Evidence has shown that the use of aloe vera can be a very effective method in
treating diabetes. It should also be noted that aloe treatment for this condition
should be done under the supervision of a qualified health care professional. But
because of it's natural healing benefits, this is one option you may want to consider
pursuing.
