Diabetes has become a very common medical condition among millions of people across the world today. This ailment was discussed umpteen times over various platforms related to healthcare and medical conferences. We don’t need to reinvent the wheel here by spending our energies to understand what it is about but we need to understand the intricacies of Diabetes mellitus. It is classified in medical jargon as type 1Diabetes and types 2 Diabetes. Many have wrongly interpreted Diabetes insipidus which is totally a different kind of ailment.
The conventional treatments for diabetes are not extinct but are slowly being replaced by innovative alternate and more effective treatments. We are going to understand what they are today. Patients with diabetes mellitus are at a higher risk of developing vascular dysfunction and hypertension. Researches and testimonials indicate that oxidative stress could play a vital role in the development of this disease. It has been established that oxidative stress is the root cause for many cardiovascular diseases, including atherosclerosis, hypertension, heart failure, stroke, and diabetes, and plays an essential role in endothelial dysfunction associated with these diseases. It has been identified that chronic leg ulcers comprise restricted oxidative stress. A recent finding exposed that insulin resistance is associated with humans with reduced intracellular antioxidant. Remarkably, antioxidants improve insulin sensitivity and help in wound healing.
Investigators have used micro-current to treat chronic wounds and ulcers. In another earlier research, an Electro Pressure Regeneration Therapy (EPRT) device which produces a current range of 3 mA down to 100 mA was utilized to treat chronic wounds and ulcers. The device used in the experiment was meant to deliver electrons to tissues and then saturated free radicals with required electrons. This device is used as a model to deliver electrons to the body, including mitochondria and presumably working as an anti-oxidant device. It was felt apt to use on patients with diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and chronic wounds, to test if delivering electrons to human body could help eliminate underlying oxidative stress, stabilize mitochondria and prevent further formation of excess free radicals.
Oxidative stress is crucial in the pathogenesis of both types of diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases including hypertension. The low levels of antioxidants along with raised levels of markers of free radical damage play a major role in delaying wound healing. Ultra-low micro-current presumably has an antioxidant effect, and it was shown to accelerate wound healing. The purpose of the study is to investigate the efficacy of ultra-low micro-current delivered by the Electro Pressure Regeneration Therapy (EPRT) device (EPRT Technologies-USA, Simi Valley, CA) in the management of diabetes, hypertension and chronic wounds. A few patients with chronic diabetes, hypertension, and unhealed wounds were treated with EPRT. The patients were treated approximately 3.5 h/day/5 days a week. Patients were under observation with daily measurement of blood pressure and blood glucose level, and their medications were recorded. Treatment continued from 2-4 months according to their response. Results showed that diabetes mellitus and hypertension were well controlled after using this device, and their wounds were markedly healed (30-100%). The patients either reduced their medication or completely stopped after the course of treatment. No side effects were reported. The mechanism of action was discussed. This treatment is going to become very popular in the near future.
