dysfunctional regulation of blood glucose levels
Diabetes is a growing global epidemic. The dysfunctional regulation of blood glucose levels is directly or indirectly the main reason for the shortened life span of diabetes patients. We need a solution that is effective, reliable and safe. Atrogi is developing a treatment that will help patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) to live a healthy life!

Causes of Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a complicated disease, caused by the decreased effect of the hormone insulin as a consequence of unhealthy lifestyle choices and/or genetics.This means that blood glucose is kept at a constantly high level and the production of insulin is eventually reduced.
Alongside exercise and diet interventions, insulin-affecting drugs have been the major target of type 2 diabetic research. Atrogi’s innovative solution has the potential to revolutionize the way in which current and future sufferers of type 2 diabetes are able to lead their lives.
Type 2 diabetes is a complex disease that comes with many severe secondary disorders. Increased and constantly high blood glucose levels cause damage to several vascular systems. Two common complications caused by this are blindness, and an impaired ability of the kidneys to filter blood.
The most devastating effect of prolonged high blood glucose levels on the vascular system is an increased risk of heart failure, and ultimately premature death. Therefore, the first important step in the treatment of diabetes is to lower blood glucose levels.
