Mary is a 25-year-old female who had developed high blood sugar. She was slightly obese and had a history of hypertension and high cholesterol. She believed that only diet and exercise could help her lower her blood sugar, but Mary’s physician recommended using applications of the D’OXYVA[1] deoxyhemoglobin transdermal vasodilator at 5-minute intervals per day, 5 times per week for 3 months. At the end of this period, Mary had lowered her blood sugar levels back to normal.

Myth #1

It Is Not Important to Check Blood Sugar as Directed During Diabetic Treatment

This is false.


Many patients erroneously believe that they can “tell” their blood sugar levels simply by how they feel. The fact is that not carefully monitoring for hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia by checking blood sugar as directed by your physician can lead to complications, which can include coma or death.
Myth #2

If You Need Insulin, It Is Because You Failed to Diet and Exercise Properly

This is false.


When you have type 2 diabetes, it is because your pancreas fails to produce an adequate amount of insulin. This may require taking insulin injections if oral medications fail, but it is not because you did anything wrong.
Myth #3

If You Are Taking Diabetic Medication, Your Diet Doesn’t Matter

This is false.


You still need to follow a healthy diet to ensure the best blood sugar control.
Myth #4

If You Are on Diabetic Medication, You Can’t Lead an Active Lifestyle

This is false.


According to the American Diabetic Association,[2] 30 minutes of brisk walking, swimming or other aerobic exercises at least 5 days per week helps control blood sugar levels.
Myth #5

Using Insulin Means Your Limbs May be Amputated

This is false.


Insulin lowers blood sugar levels, which reduces the risk of a limb amputation.
Myth #6

All Diabetic Patients Should Take the Same Medications

This is false.


Different patients will require different diabetic medications depending on what works best for them.
Myth #7

It is Necessary to Lose Large Amounts of Weight to Lower Blood Sugar Levels

This is false.


If you lose from 5 to 10% of your body weight, it can make a significant difference in your blood sugar level.
Myth #8

Everyone With Diabetes Will End Up With Neuropathy (Nerve Damage)

This is false.


Good blood sugar control and significantly improve your microcirculation can help prevent complications from diabetes. Improved microcirculation acts as a nerve stimulant for people suffering from the damaging effects of moderate to advanced neuropathy
Myth #9

Everyone With Diabetes Will End Up Blind

This is false.


Good blood sugar control and sufficient microcirculation to the eyes can help prevent eye complications from diabetes.
Myth #10

Everyone With Diabetes Will End Up With Kidney Failure

This is false.


Good blood sugar control and significantly improve microcirculation to organs affected can help prevent further organ complications from diabetes.
