The study aimed at demonstration of a correlation between the challenge of Helicobacter pylori prevalence worldwide and the challenging spread of childhood diabetes in the world. The rising frequency of childhood diabetes mellitus in the world should not be taken in separate consideration from the worldwide dramatic spread of adult diabetes mellitus (DM). The correlation between diabetes and the increased incidence of obesity in children should be also considered.
H. pylori were suggested as one of the environmental reasons that could be directly related to the problem of childhood DM. The challenge lies mainly in the emergence of drastic resistant H. pylori strains due to the antibiotic violence against the stomach bacterium; these strains can travel from parents during early childhood to kids leading to a state of biological stress that could lead to stress diabetes; interestingly, children maintain the same strain genotype of H. pylori lifelong even they move to a different environment. The current eradication treatments of H. pylori have shown a lot of controversy; it would be a plea to cost the child's delicate structure the drastic side-effects of repeated antibiotic eradication therapy upon detection of H. pylori each time.
The study included 7 children aged between 6-9 years old with an early onset of diabetes mellitus. Children were investigated together with their parents for the existence of H. pylori using specific tests. Colon-care and colon-clear with natural purge and bio-organic acids were employed for H. pylori eradication for children and parents. All children and their parents were found positive for H. pylori; all children became free of H. pylori strains after colonclear while parents of three families needed revision of colon clear in order to complete eradication of H. pylori. The diabetic condition was successfully recovered in 9 children and they were able to quit therapy and maintain normal blood sugar values; one child aged 8 years old had to continue on insulin in order to maintain normal blood sugar level.
It was concluded that the challenge of childhood diabetes could be simply part of the H. pylori-related worldwide dramatic spread of DM. Natural colon-clear should be considered as safe and effective measure for eradication of the abnormal-habitat colonic H. pylori strains. Revision of the guide lines of the newly discovered childhood diabetes should be considered.
