DIABETES

When type 2 diabetes is mismanaged or neglected, there are many complications that a person can experience, including:

  • ketoacidosis
  • kidney disease
  • high blood pressure
  • stroke

Additionally, it is common for individuals with diabetes to experience inflammation and joint pain as secondary health issues caused by diabetes. Therefore, proper treatment for type 2 diabetes is very important.

The Endocannabinoid system is involved in your body’s ability to break down and use lipids (fats) and glucose (sugars). When the Endocannabinoid system becomes unbalanced, the result can be seen in an accumulation of body fat, particularly in the abdominal area.

By using CBD, individuals can keep their endocannabinoid system regulated and balanced. This is because research has found that CBD helps increase insulin secretion. In turn, this can help prevent many of the complications and risk factors associated with Type 2 diabetes and obesity.

The endocannabinoid system is also important in your body’s regulation and management of chronic pain, like the inflammation and joint pain that can be experienced as secondary side effects of diabetes. Because CBD prevents the body from absorbing something called anandamide— a compound known to be involved in regulating pain— less anandamide being absorbed means that more of it is remaining in the bloodstream. This allows the body to use that excess anandamide to better regulate pain and inflammation.

A report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that as of 2015, 30.3 million Americans, which is 9.4 percent of the population of the United States, have diabetes. Additionally, 84.1 million Americans have prediabetes which, if not treated– will “often lead to type 2 diabetes within five years”1. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of the illness. When an individual has Type 2 diabetes, his or her body does not properly use glucose (sugar), which is the fuel for the body. This results in an excess of sugar in the bloodstream and an imbalance in the body2.

Most common treatment for type 2 diabetes includes a controlled diet, exercise regimen, and participation in support programs. When these treatments are not enough, people may have to use insulin injections or take oral medications that lower the body’s blood glucose levels3.

When type 2 diabetes is mismanaged or neglected, there are many complications that a person can experience, including:

  • ketoacidosis
  • kidney disease
  • high blood pressure
  • stroke4.
