Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood glucose level to become too high. There are two main types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2.
Type 2 diabetes is where the body does not produce the sufficient amount of insulin or when the body's cells do not react appropriately to the insulin. This is different from Type 1, in which a person’s pancreas does not produce any insulin.
Type 2 diabetes is linked to being overweight and living an inactive lifestyle. People who have a family history of type 2 diabetes are also at an increased risk of developing the condition at some point in their life.
When you are diabetic, your body reacts differently to insulin than in a person who is not diabetic. The pancreas produces insulin to control the amount of sugar in the blood.
When you digest food, it enters into your bloodstream and then insulin moves glucose out of the blood and into your cells.
It is then broken down to produce energy however; if you have diabetes, your body is unable to break down the glucose into energy. The cause of this is either there is not enough insulin to regulate the level of glucose in the blood or that the insulin produced is ineffective.
If diabetes is left untreated, there grows a risk of complications including: cardiovascular disease, nerve damage, kidney damage, eye damage and hearing impairment.
Before you buy Competact online, it is important to speak to your doctor about your condition to determine the right course of treatment for you. Your doctor will be able to provide actionable steps to help you manage your condition. They may propose dietary or lifestyle changes, such as eating fewer simple carbohydrates and regularly exercising.
Competact tablets contain two active ingredients to help your body process glucose; pioglitazone and metformin.
Pioglitazone is believed to reduce insulin resistance, and reduces the amount of glucose in the liver and blood.
Metformin also reduces the amount of glucose the liver makes, thus lowering the amount of glucose in the blood.
When combined, the two active ingredients make it easier for your body to manage the glucose in your bloodstream and lower your blood sugar levels.
It can take about 4 weeks of taking Competact to balance your blood sugar levels.
