Long before this pandemic had spread across the world, we were dealing with another threat. Diabetes, a comparatively silent pandemic, has been around since the 1900s and occurs when an individual’s blood sugar is too high and causes damage to various parts of the body. By 2025, the number of people affected by diabetes is projected to hit 333 million.1
Today, some people are facing a pandemic on two fronts. Diabetes is currently on the list of high-risk conditions by the CDC.2 In fact, the CDC reported that 37% of patients in Georgia who needed to be hospitalized had pre-existing diabetes.3
Diabetes inhibits your body’s ability to fight off infection, and with diabetes patients specifically, viral infections can increase swelling and inflammation, which can lead to more severe problems. The American Diabetes Association recommends that patients with diabetes practice proper diabetes management to ensure they keep healthy.4
If you are suffering from diabetes, we can help. In our diabetes program, patients are guided through a personalized treatment plan that may include a combination of supplements, exercise routine, physical therapies, iv therapies, and nutritional & dietary guidelines.
