Apart from, weight reduction, it is believed that aju mbaise can be used to reduce blood sugar and cure diabetes milletus… But how true is this?
Before I fact check the veracity of this claim, let me quickly tell you about diabetes.
know about Diabetes!!!
Diabetes mellitus, commonly known as diabetes, is a metabolic disease that causes high blood sugar. The hormone insulin moves sugar from the blood into your cells to be stored or used for energy.
With diabetes, your body either doesn’t make enough insulin or can’t effectively use the insulin it does make. Untreated high blood sugar from diabetes can damage your nerves, eyes, kidneys, and other organs.
TYPES OF DIABETES
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. The immune system attacks and destroys cells in the pancreas, where insulin is made. It’s unclear what causes this attack. About 10 percent of people with diabetes have this type.
Type 2 diabetes occurs when your body becomes resistant to insulin, and sugar builds up in your blood.
Prediabetes occurs when your blood sugar is higher than normal, but it’s not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes.
Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar during pregnancy. Insulin-blocking hormones produced by the placenta cause this type of diabetes.
A rare condition called diabetes insipidus is not related to diabetes mellitus, although it has a similar name. It’s a different condition in which your kidneys remove too much fluid from your body.
The Symptoms Of Diabetes can vary from one person to the other. Sometimes asymptomatic and can also depend on the type of diabetes you have.
The symptoms of Diabetes may occur when blood sugar levels is abnormally high.
The most common symptoms of Diabetes are;
– increased thirst
– increased hunger
– frequent urination
– extreme fatigue
– blurry vision
– unexplained weight loss
– infections/sores that heal slowly
Men with diabetes may also have decreased sex drive, poor muscle strength and Erectile Dysfunction.
Women with diabetes can also have symptoms such as yeast infections, urinary tract infections and dry, itchy skin.
The treatment of diabetes entails regularizing blood sugar via what is called life style modifications like exercises, dieting and use of drugs like insulin + other anti-diabetic drugs. Many locals that are diabetic especially in Nigeria believe and use herbs like bitter leaf, scent leaf, bitter kola, ginger, garlic, papaya leaves, guava leaves, aju mbaise etc to treat their diabetes (high blood sugar). For the purpose of this article, am going to look at aju Mbaise effectiveness in the cure or treatment of diabetes.
Can aju Mbaise cure diabetes?
CAPITAL NO. Aju Mbaise cannot cure or reduce blood sugar under any guise. Yes, it is effective in burning excess fat, it does not have the medicinal properties that will enable it reduce blood sugar or cure diabetes. I have searched many research journals on the potency of aju mbaise in controlling blood sugar, all said aju mbaise cannot be used to treat diabetes. In summary, aju mbaise is not an anti-diabetic herb and should not be used for diabetics with the aim of achieving sugar control. IT WILL NOT WORK. GO AND SEE A MEDICAL DOCTOR IF YOU ARE DIABETIC.
