The Fifth Pillar of Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes is the leading cause of death and illness in both developed and developing countries. In 2011 alone, nearly 15 million out of about 260 million people worldwide suffer from diabetes. In the United States, nearly 26 million people are diabetic (8.3% of the total population), which has started to suffer even from the age of 20. The management of people with diabetes is summarized in what is referred to as the four pillars of diabetes management: a disciplined diet, regular exercise, antidiabetic drugs and insulin injections, and ongoing education. Since diabetes is a disease that has not been cured, these four pillars must be carried out continuously with consistent throughout the age, during the life still contained the body. When performed disciplined under the supervision of a physician, the person with diabetes can live a normal life and be able to prevent (or at least slow down) the occurrence of these terrifying complications. The problem is, most patients have difficulty continuing to run these four pillars in a disciplined and continuous manner. Therefore you are advised to consume drinks that are beneficial to the body such as alkaline water.

Since the invention of the electrolysis machine that can convert ordinary water into alkaline water, research into the benefits of alkaline water is widespread in many parts of the world, one of which is in managing patients with high blood sugar. This method of drinking alkaline water has the potential to be the fifth pillar that is easy, cheap, effective, and efficient in the management of diabetes. Here are some studies on the benefits of alkaline water in diabetes, its effects on various complications of diabetes, as well as the effects of alkaline water protection on the pancreas, the insulin-producing organs. (Since it is produced by an electrolysis process, alkaline water is known as Electrolyzed Reduced Water (ERW), also known as Hydrogen Rich Water (HRW) because it contains many hydrogen ions that function as antioxidants). (In Japan, research on functional water, especially reduced water, is growing rapidly Reduced water such as electrolyzed reduced water or natural reduced water can capture reactive oxygen (free radical) compounds in culture experimental cells Reduced water is expected to have the effect of prevention and treatment in various diseases associated with oxidative stress such as diabetes, cancer, calcification of blood vessels, degenerative nerve disease, and various side effects of dialysis.)
