Don’t manage diabetes, reverse it.
Type 2 diabetes is where your body makes insulin, but isn’t using it properly, leading to elevated levels of glucose in your blood. Over time, these higher levels of glucose can cause nerve damage, eyesight damage, wounds that don’t heal, and even lead to heart disease, necessitate amputations, and even death. The incidence of type 2 diabetes has increased by 90% since 2000. But the causes are numerous and varied and that another reason that we always start with blood work. We are able to see if there’s a deeper issue aside from the blood sugar. Without that deeper testing, we don’t know if the patient is actually diabetic, or if there’s a greater problem, a larger metabolic function imbalance. Depending on how chronic it is, we need to correct that first.
Usually if a patient has high blood sugar, the lipid panel will be out of balance because the body is using sugar as a fuel source and not fat. Your metabolism will be completely “out of whack” because your body’s primary fuel source is sugar, it’s using that fuel source ineffectively, and then storing the excess as fat, causing metabolic levels to spiral further out of control. If blood sugar is high, there is a very good chance that the lipid panel will be off. A lipid panel consists of cholesterol, triglycerides, LDLs, and HDLs.
If you’re diabetic, I have the tools and knowledge to help get you to a healthier point and away from insulin. Unfortunately, no one put on insulin will then lose weight. It’s physiologically impossible and the doctors know it. Prescribing insulin works on the symptom but not the problem. It will make you heavier and worse. Find out what’s causing it and correct it. I have tools in my toolbox to correct blood sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides, etc. You can become healthier, slimmer, and not have to be dependent on insulin. It is 100% possible to become insulin free. It all starts with my functional blood chemistry analysis to find out what the root causes so that we can fix it.
