A recent study found some shocking statistics regarding the prevalence of diabetes. Results point to half of the United States population being affected by diabetes or pre-diabetes. There are a number of options for management of the disease, not the least of which is an all-natural approach to diabetes treatment in Arlington.
There are two primary types of diabetes (aside from gestational diabetes found in pregnant women): type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that destroys cells in the pancreas. More common is type 2 diabetes which exhibits insulin resistance.
There are factors that can be controlled by the individual with diabetes. These include diet, eating habits, nutritional deficiencies, exercise, weight, hormonal imbalance and exposure to environmental toxins.
When seeking naturopathic diabetes treatment, a patient will undergo a comprehensive evaluation to determine individual barriers to good health. This encompasses both a physical examination and laboratory testing. A personalized plan for diabetes management will be developed with your particular issues in mind.
Changes that will likely be implemented may be:
- A diet that includes healthy proteins, low carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables and oils.
- An exercise regimen designed to strengthen muscles and the heart.
- Methods for reducing stress and managing stress.
After successful participation in diabetes management the evaluation of the need for prescribed medications will be conducted, as well. By losing weight, increasing energy, lowering glucose levels and lowering blood pressure, diabetes can be controlled.
