What is Diabetes Mellitus?
Diabetes Mellitus (DM), commonly known as Diabetes, is a chronic disease associated with abnormally high levels of sugar, particularly Glucose, in the blood over a prolonged period of time.
There are two major types of Diabetes Mellitus, each with different characteristics that distinguish one from the other. The table below provides the fundamental distinctions of each type:

Type 1 DM
Type 2 DM
Also known as
Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM)
Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM)
Childhood or Juvenile onset
Antibodies to Beta cells of the Pancreas (Autoimmune), which results to the destruction of these cells that produce Insulin. No insulin production.
Insulin Resistance, which means the body no longer responds to the functions of Insulin.
Insulin is the hormone that controls blood glucose levels
Diagnosis and Complications
Diagnosing Diabetes involves a test to determine the body’s blood glucose levels which requires 6 to 8 hours of fasting. Depending on your blood sample’s milligrams per deciliter or Mg/dL, the measurement that indicates the amount of glucose, you will be classified as Normal (80 – 100 Mg/dL), Pre-Diabetic (101 – 125 Mg/dL), or Diabetic (126 Mg/dL and above).
It is important to note that once a person develops this disease, even the most advanced conventional or Western medicine could no longer fully treat it. The best course of action would be to maintain a particular diet and lifestyle to have normal blood glucose levels in order to prevent its complications.
These complications affect almost all parts of the body causing damage to the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart, and other major organs. As such, Diabetes is considered as one of the worst health problems there is, greatly reducing one’s quality of life.
Some of the most common Macrovascular complications, or those that involve the body’s large blood vessels, are Coronary Heart Diseases (CHD) such as Myocardial Infarction also known as Heart Attack, Cerebrovascular Diseases (CVD) such as stroke, and Peripheral Arterial Diseases (PAD) such as gangrene and poor wound healing. Diabetes could also result to Microvascular complications, or those that involve the small blood vessels, such as Diabetic Retinopathy, Neuropathy, and Nephropathy.
Being able to discern its presence during the pre-stage of the disease is very critical so as to prevent the further development of Diabetes. In most cases, patients manifest complications even before being diagnosed.
Our revolutionary diagnostic system, the NHZ Blood Scan, has the advance capabilities of detecting the early stages of Diabetes, or the Pre-Diabetic State.
The adjuvant treatment as well as a good blood sugar monitoring for any type of Diabetes that we offer greatly helps in preventing its complications, without the side effects of usual traditional medicine, while providing a much better quality of life to our patients.
