Found a way to lower blood sugar without insulin injections

Simple outpatient surgery in the early stages of diagnosis will delay the need for insulin injections when

type II diabetes. The researchers are currently conducting phase II clinical trials.

Insulin is a vital hormonewhich helps to process glucose in the bloodstream for energy production. In patients with type II diabetes, the body loses the ability to use it effectively. If the disease is not treated, a prolonged increase in blood sugar levels will lead to serious health complications.

In the early stages of the disease, patients are helpedlifestyle changes, diet or oral medications. But eventually, the disease often progresses to the point where regular insulin injections are needed. However, scientists have figured out how to prevent or slow down the transition to hormone injections.

The essence of the procedure is to correct the workduodenum, the first section of the small intestine just behind the stomach. This organ plays a key role in digestion, including the regulation of insulin and blood glucose levels. In patients with type II diabetes, the cells lining the duodenum are damaged. In clinical studies, scientists are testing the hypothesis that removing these cells helps you recover healthy by improving blood glucose regulation.

Patients in clinical trials willperform an endoscopy to insert a device into the duodenum that removes these dysfunctional cells with a series of electrical impulses. The procedure itself is minimally invasive - it takes about an hour, is performed under general anesthesia, and the patient is discharged on the same day.

The first results are encouraging.Patients who have undergone this procedure in recent months already experience a decrease in blood glucose levels. If success continues, a new diabetes treatment will be available within a few years.
