Being a diabetic in this day and age is much easier than it used to be. Flexible and recyclable instant pens make it simpler to handle higher sugar levels and manage a larger dose of gastronomical intake. The diabetic research done within the medicinal community increases the level of standard that is necessary in order to maintain a strong physical standard. The insulin that is available for diabetics today is high-quality and also easily managable, relatively affordable and good for the digestive system. This is much due to the fabulous research done by laboratories around the globe, designed to make the daily life of diabetics easier. What makes it more relaxing for patients with this chronic disease is that the long-term insulins, like Levemir, actually spread the insulin into the bloodstream bit by bit, so to speak, over a longer period of time. Insulins such as Protaphane had the unfortunate side-effect of creating a dangerous low-level in patients when overdosed, much due to the high rising of effects in the middle of its tide. The newer and more effective insulin alternatives found today are designed to protect the patients from oncoming low-sugar attacks. These attacks are regarded as a big threat to many people, who stay up late at night in order to avoid an epileptic-like fit. The fast blood sugar testing machines that are available everywhere and their high production level give the modern diabetic a calm sense of security. It is getting comfortable to be a diabetic. The high-tech machines are now more silent and very quickly produce relatively correct results, while earlier machines were louder and slower. We are even getting machines now that can produce the HbA1c levels on demand much more rapidly than a few years ago. The theory is that new medication for the healing of diabetes will be on its way in a decade or so. That is all theory at the moment, but until then we are left with the memories of diabetic with their huge boxes. It is true that diabetes has become a common disease. This is unfortunately due to the immensely high amount of industrial sugar in soft drinks and sweets. The common person deals very recklessly with the gastronomical intake of the fast food generation. Diabetes is only a symptom of this commonly known fact. Luckily enough, wonderful doctors like Benno Schulze-Schleppinghoff in Essen or Joachim Thiel in Herten are educated enough to hold countless seminars, webinars and workshops for newer patients with this common chronic disease in order to battle the long fight that we have in conquering this increasingly widespread sickness. It must be said that diabetes is a situation, not a sickness. At least, it should be regarded as such. Today, diabetics should be regarded as people who have their normal insulin intake given from outside the body. Living with the disease, responsibly and intelligently, is a must. However, diabetic can live well and long, enjoying good meals and occasionally a good glass of wine.
