27 million suffer from type II diabetes and 86 million have pre-diabetes where their blood glucose is not normal but not high enough to be considered to have diabetes.
If you suffer from Type II Diabetes, are frustrated that your current treatments are not working, and are tired of expensive, side-effect-laden, and potentially dangerous prescription drugs and insulin, then we invite you to claim a COMPREHENSIVE TYPE II DIABETES EXAM to discover a fresh new treatment approach for anyone suffering from Type II Diabetes.
I’m following the advice from my doctor and taking my medicine, but still feel bad. Why?
Most treatments and medications focus on treating blood sugar, which is a symptom of diabetes. The underlying cause of diabetes is insulin resistance.
If you have type II diabetes your body is unable to use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it isn’t able to keep up and can’t make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels.
Any time in healthcare that you focus on symptoms and not underlying causes, results suffer. No medication exists to treat insulin resistance. We focus on correcting the insulin resistance.
Diabetes medications also carry serious side effects and risks including weight gain and can ultimately perpetuate, and potentially worsen, the disease long-term. Medications only mask the problem and fail to treat the underlying root causes.
The Functional Medicine Approach
There are two big misconceptions floating around.
First, many believe that if you’re pre-diabetic there is a 100% chance you will become diabetic. This is not true. I most cases, pre-diabetes can be reversed.
The second belief is that once you have type II diabetes, you will be diabetic for life. This is also not true.
Type II diabetes is an entirely preventable and reversible lifestyle disease. There is clear evidence from the scientific literature, and our own experience, that diabetes is reversible. It is easier if the disease is caught in the earlier stages however most cases can be reversed with very intensive lifestyle changes, medications and supplements.
With our individualized treatment approach, we address the insulin resistance as the underlying cause of type II diabetes to help you overcome this disease and get your life back!
We believe in treating the whole person, not just the disease. At our clinic we will do comprehensive lab testing to determine if there are underlying causes making it seem impossible to manage your diabetes. With these answers, we can develop an individualized treatment program customized for you.
Our patients have had great success lowering their blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose, and even their A1c to below diabetic numbers!
