How does Diabetes Occur?

Normally, the amount of sugar in the blood is controlled by a hormone called insulin. Insulin is produced by the pancreas, a gland located behind the stomach. When food is digested and enters the bloodstream, insulin helps move any glucose out of the blood and into cells, where it is broken down to produce energy. In people with diabetes, the body is unable to break down glucose into energy. This is because there is either not enough insulin to move the glucose, or because the insulin that is there does not work properly. There are two types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2.

Alongside many other diseases, Fecal Incontinence is triggered by Diabetes and Type 2 diabetes is often caused by Obesity.

The new Secca Therapy Treatment, now available in the UK, is an out-patient treatment for long term sufferers of Fecal Incontinence. Here at Fico Centre we arrange these appointments for you. Please call us for further information on 0844 561 6606.
