Diabetes

Overview

Diabetes is a general name for a range of diseases that are characterized by high blood glucose levels. This imbalance is caused by the body's inability to produce and/or use insulin. It is estimated that approximately 8.3% of the United States' population has a form of diabetes with an additional estimated 79 million that are pre-diabetic. The most common form of diabetes is Type 2.

Management

Diabetes is largely related to environmental issues, which is good news since each patient can somewhat control this. There are ways to significantly lower blood sugar levels and decrease the oxidative stress on cells due to high sugar levels. Advice about diet, nutritional support, formulas that are :"sugar-busting" and supplements that can prevent/reverse diabetes damage are also offered at our center. This is extremely crucial if one is pre-diabetic so that diabetes can possibly be avoided altogether.

The doctor also specializes in intravenous therapy managements for diabetes, supplying the patient's body with large doses of nutrients that are needed to lower blood sugar. This management is complemented by natural substances such as benfotiamine, cinnamon, and chromium that help regulate the blood sugar by increasing insulin activity and aiding in the body's manufacture of glucose tolerance factor, which is needed to properly manage blood sugar levels.
