Science behind MDI

Microdose Infusion (MDI), the only American FDA approved diabetes complication treatment, simulates the insulin circulation of a non-diabetic. To understand MDI, you need to understand why it works. Insulin primarily assists the liver in producing enzymes of 33 types. These enzymes need to be broken down by our body cells to absorb the carbohydrates and sugars and convert it into energy. For people who do not have diabetes, this is a natural process. But for people with diabetes, this entire system is dysfunctional. Without the production and delivery of insulin the entire process of sugar absorption and metabolization is disrupted.

Think of your system as being in the process of baking a cake. If even one ingredient is missing, be it flour or butter, the cake will be something other than a perfectly baked cake. Diabetes works the same way. If there are certain enzymes not present in the body, glucose will not be produced in the required quantities. This leads to the cells not having enough energy to thrive. This is why diabetics have severe complications and this is where Microdose Infusion Therapy comes in.

MDI involves 3 one-hour treatments where insulin is infused intravenously with controlled microdose of insulin through a microdose pump. The amount of insulin is pre-decided depending on the average caloric need to match the patient’s weight during the period of treatment. A 30-minute break is provided between each hour of microdose infusions.

MDI mimics the process of how healthy pancreas delivers insulin to the liver and the other cells of the body. Within only 4 seconds of the burst, the liver begins to receive proper oscillations traditionally sent by the pancreas. The bursts of insulin introduced to the body activate the liver to start the process of storing glucose as glycogen to be used as energy in the future. It also ensures that the insulin creates a steady flow of enzymes through the blood which in turn triggers the muscles, organs and cells to process glucose normally to create energy. This process affects every cell in the body, and this is what brings results that are relieving so many diabetics from their suffering today.

While Microdose Infusion therapy does not lead to curing diabetes, it treats the elementary malfunction as well as inflammation caused by diabetes (both Type 1 & Type 2) and provides relief from the damage brought on by diabetes complications especially neuropathy, retinopathy, nephropathy. 

It can be said that MDI has been proven to be one of the safest, most effective treatments to reduce or prevent the damage caused by diabetes complications. It can also enhance a patient’s quality of life and diminish several diabetes-related systemic problems.
