Diabetes is running rampant today, as evidenced by the 24 million Americans who suffer from this terrible disease. Even more disturbing is the fact that there are more than 47 million Americans who have symptoms of pre-diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is the most common, affecting 90-95% of individuals. Causes can typically be controlled and consist of obesity, lack of exercise, poor dietary habits, lack of nutritious food and excess fat and sugar consumption. There may be a solution for this problem that has not been previously considered – naturopathic diabetes treatment in Marysville.
A naturopathic physician will conduct a thorough examination of your lifestyle and eating habits and explore potential explanations for your diabetes diagnosis. Included will be a physical, laboratory testing, cholesterol levels, anemia screening, evaluation of liver and kidney function and blood sugar monitoring. Depending upon your specific circumstances, the naturopath may also check vitamin D levels, cardiac risk, toxemia, thyroid, adrenal and reproductive hormonal disproportions.
Recommendations for the improvement of your overall health can be life-changing. Schooling on a balanced diet that is low in carbohydrates, variety in healthy proteins, beneficial fruits and vegetables and the types of oils that work best for diabetic patients. Exercise will be encouraged each day, as well as ways to manage stress.
Vitamin and mineral supplementation also play an important part in managing diabetes. They not only lower glucose levels and lessen insulin resistance but they lower blood pressure and lipids and reduce inflammation. While prescription medication may still be necessary at first, naturopathic patients are often able to reduce or completely discontinue this therapy after naturopathic treatment.
