Diabetes itself is dangerous only because of the consequences of high blood sugar levels. Insulin or pills can control these. Nevertheless, the consequences of diabetes on the long term are the ones to be carefully considered! When the high level of blood glucose is high over longer periods of time, the nerves and the blood vessels are slowly degrading until the patient starts suffering of polyneuropathies (among which, the degrading of the optic nerve is the most frequent cause of sight loss, even leading to blindness, in the case of 85% of the patients), arteriopathies, kidney failure and ulcerations of the calves that do not usually respond to the usual treatment, sometimes leading to amputation. The blood vessels that are affected most often are the ones found in the heart, brain and kidney area. Since patients suffering from diabetes have a very low tolerance at infections, “complications of other complications” may appear, mostly with skin infections or the ones of the respiratory or the urinary system.
The success of ozone therapy in the fight with diabetes is given mostly by the fact that it aims at its main cause (hyperglycemia), but at the same time at its side effects. When facing difficult complications, conventional medicine comes up with treatment schemes that do not always pay off and that is mostly because the very mechanism through which they are supposed to work has already been compromised by the disease. That is why one very beneficial “side effect” of ozone therapy is that, while healing the damaged tissues, it also protects and strengthens the healthy ones, thus helping the body respond well to the conventional therapies. While some patients have complications very early on and others never get to this stage, most patients are exposed to this risk on the long run, displaying severe consequences throughout a period of 15-20 years after the debut of the disease.
