It started about 2 yrs ago. Everthing gets infected finger, tear duct, infection from finger went into bloodstream and I was soo sick. Pull a piece of skin around my thumbnail.. Within 3 weeks I lost the entire nail. Then there were boils. As soon as one would heal another would appear around vagina/buttocks area. After a dozen or so of those I went to the doctor for a antibiotic. I worked 3rd shift and I woke up one night feeling funny...Take a shower,i'll feel better. Nope! I felt worse. I had never felt this way before. Went to er my pulse was 125 and my heart was out of rhythm. This hasn't happen often but always when I first wake up, lying in bed. I'm not thirsty until I go t sleep, then I can't get enough. Same thing with sweets. First of all sugar puts me to sleep and I wake up during the night craving sweets. I've noticed that if I don't eat them, I feel awful the next day...Out of sorts,dizzy,sick to stomach. Last thing...I am tired all the time and I can sleep for days,wake up and still want to go back to sleep. I'm so tired of feeling this way...If u might know please reply...Iam 47 yr. Old

Diabetes mellitus is an inability to metabolize carbohydrates resulting from inadequate insulin production or utilization. Other forms of diabetes (such as diabetes insipidus) are not included in this discussion.
There are two types of diabetes mellitus, type 1 and type 2. This article concerns type 2 diabetes, which has also been called adult-onset diabetes or non-insulin-dependent diabetes. However, type 2 diabetes may also affect children and may also require treatment with insulin. With type 2 diabetes, the pancreas often makes enough insulin, but the body has trouble using it. Type 2 diabetes frequently responds well to natural therapies.
Chromium helps to regulate blood sugar level and indirectly affects level of fats in the blood. Alpha-lipoic acid may treat symptoms of nerve damage in people with diabetes and may improve the glucose-lowering action of insulin. Vitamin b complex 50 helps produce enzymes that convert glucose to energy and may also aid in preventing diabetic nerve damage. Flaxseed contains essential fatty acids that protect against nerve damage and keep arteries supply. It also works to lower cholesterol level, and thereby protecting against heart disease. Antioxidants, including vitamin c, vitamin e and phytonutrients in bilberry, prevent damage to the nerves, eyes, and heart. Gymnema may increase insulin production or increase insulin release. Taurine may improve insulin sensitivity and decrease cholesterol level. Zinc is an essential mineral that is a component of enzymes needed to repair wounds, maintain fertility in adults, help cells reproduce, preserve vision, boost immunity, and protect against free radicals, among other functions. Copper is needed with long-term use of zinc, because zinc inhibits copper absorption.
