No matter what the cause, whether environmental or genetic, diabetes diagnoses have reached epidemic levels in the United States and elsewhere around the world. Currently, around 24 million people in the US have been diagnosed with diabetes and 47 million with prediabetes. If left untreated, diabetes can and will kill. It is often unnecessary for some individuals to rely on prescription medication. Wonderful results have been documented with naturopathic diabetes treatment in Monroe.
There are 3 types of diabetes:
- Gestational – Diabetes is diagnosed during pregnancy. It may disappear after delivery or may continue beyond delivery.
- Type 1 Diabetes – An auto-immune disorder that destroys cells in the pancreas.
- Type 2 Diabetes – The most common form is the body’s resistance to insulin.
Naturopathic solutions are highly individualized and address diet issues and nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances and environmental toxins.
A physical examination by a naturopathic physician will include testing cholesterol levels, the function of liver and kidneys and blood sugar monitoring, as well as any other tests deemed necessary.
Recommendations may include a specifically low carbohydrate diet and foods that encourage healthy blood sugar levels. An exercise plan also helps to regulate blood sugar. Vitamin and mineral supplementation lower glucose levels and further encourage the body to operate functionally.
Some patients may benefit from standard prescriptions, may be required to begin a medication regimen or, due to effective naturopathic intervention, may be able to reduce or totally eliminate medications. Your naturopathic physician will monitor this closely.
