Metabolic diseases are in short diseases where metabolism is disrupted. They are often caused by hereditary factors combined with physical strain or psychological stress.

What methods are used to treat metabolic diseases in Marianske Lazne?
In Marianske Lazne, it is most frequently the diabetes, i.e. micro circulation complications that may be caused by diabetes in the body. The spa treatments should provide a substantial relief from such problems. Mineral and dry carbonic baths help to relieve blood pressure, decrease the pulse rate, improve blood circulation in extremities and stimulate the secretion of urine, which contributes to purging the organism.
In the past, the therapy in Marianske Lazne focused on another metabolic disorder, obesity. In the first half of the 20th century, regular fat-men races were held in the surrounding hills. In reality, obesity is not directly cured in Marianske Lazne, however, the Cross Spring has a beneficial influence because when dosed correctly, it can improve the metabolism and digestion.
Diabetes ranks among highly serious metabolic disorders, occurring with an alarming frequency with the numbers of diabetics steadily growing. It is caused by incorrect functioning or an insufficient volume of the hormone insulin in the body. Insulin facilitates the transition of sugar from blood to tissues where it serves as a source of energy. However, when the volume of insulin in the body is low or when the tissues do not accept it, sugar will not reach its destination and accumulates in blood. Diabetes emerges.
The medicine distinguishes the 1st and the 2nd types of diabetes. In the first case, diabetes usually emerges by the 30rd year of life, most frequently in childhood or adolescence. It is the less frequent form when insulin is missing completely in the body. The occurrence of diabetes is accompanied with weight loss, great thirst, frequent urination, and fatigue. The treatment is carried out using regular doses of insulin and adapting the patient’s diet.
The 2nd type diabetes is much more frequent, up to 92% patients with diabetes suffer from this form. It affects rather older people, often with overweight or obesity. The 2nd type diabetes is caused not only by hereditary factors but also by an unhealthy lifestyle. A lack of physical activity, poor eating habits, stress; all these can result in diabetes.
Patients with the 2nd type diabetes do not miss insulin in their bodies. On the other hand, it is often in excess. The issue is that tissues cannot respond adequately to it. Apart from obesity, this type of disease is often accompanied by a deteriorated micro circulation, increased blood pressure and the level of uric acid. The therapy is based on a strict diabetic diet. More exercise and a loss of weight will help as well.
Health complications arising from diabetes are treated in Marianske Lazne for example by rehabilitation, acupuncture, classic and reflective massages, or thermotherapy.
