Natural Treatments to Reverse Prediabetes and Diabetes
Progressive Medical Center has natural solutions for you that can redirect your metabolism, reboot insulin and sugar processing, help you lose weight, and reverse your diabetes or stop you from getting it. This can put you on track for a long, healthy diabetes free life.
Diabetes and prediabetes are an epidemic in the U.S., affecting at least 115 million people. According to the Centers for Disease Control, one out of 11 Americans has Type II diabetes and one in 8 people have prediabetes. If someone has prediabetes, it is just a matter of time before they develop full-blown diabetes. Diabetes increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney problems, and losing toes or feet. And there is a 50% higher risk of death if you have diabetes compared to those who don’t.
The CDC says that 1 in 3 people will develop diabetes in their lifetime and, most importantly, this disease can be prevented!
There are signs and symptoms you can watch out for. You can take control and take action before your health is compromised. Prediabetes can be treated and reversed through dietary changes and healthy lifestyle when it’s caught early. But the longer it goes undiagnosed and untreated, the greater the chance it can turn into full-blown diabetes, which is much harder to turn around. The doctors at Progressive Medical Center are experts in chronic, metabolic diseases and they can pinpoint exactly what your body needs to stop the downward spiral of diabetes.
Diabetes and Sugar Metabolism
Diabetes is a metabolic disease, affecting all the cells in your body. Diabetes means that the body has trouble using sugar for energy. All of the cells in our bodies use sugar, fat, and amino acids as fuel to make energy. Insulin is the hormone that helps sugar get into the cell. Insulin keeps blood sugar levels in check (<100 mg/dL).
If you eat a lot of sugar, your body has to increase insulin to match the amount of sugar. But if insulin is high for too long, the cells stop listening to insulin signals. This condition is called, “insulin resistance” because the cells are literally resisting the action of insulin. A person with insulin resistance will have high blood sugar and high insulin. This series of changes in the body’s metabolism can set off a downward spiral ending at type II diabetes.
Many people with diabetes will take insulin (Lantus ® or Levimer ®) to override the high blood sugar. They might also take pharmaceuticals such as Metformin ®, Glucophage ®, or Januvia ®. These pharmaceuticals have many side effects that can cause other health problems and complications.
Natural Solutions that You Should Know About
There are natural solutions to diabetes and prediabetes. Because these are metabolic diseases, you need doctors who have a specialized knowledge of how the body works, how to redirect the metabolism, and how to reboot insulin and sugar processing. Integrative medical doctors at Progressive Medical Center have demonstrated success in halting, reversing, and repairing the metabolism in people who have diabetes and prediabetes.
Doctors at Progressive Medical Center use the following treatments to slow-down, stop, or reverse diabetes and prediabetes:
- Customized dietary support
- Nutritional supplements
- Exercise regimen
- Specialized diagnostic testing
There are other root causes of diabetes or prediabetes that can hold you back, even when you follow a good diet and exercise program. We use specialized testing to look at your metabolism, cardiovascular system, and your internal biochemistry. If these areas are overlooked by your other doctors, then you may not get the improvements that you deserve.
At Progressive Medical Center, we use specialized tests to measure:
- Food sensitivities
- Gastrointestinal health
- Heart health
- Hormonal balance
Diabetes is a metabolic disease. That’s why advice from your conventional doctor –eat less, exercise more, don’t eat sugar- may not always work. To get results, your doctors need to address the underlying causes of your condition, not just the symptoms. We don’t want you to struggle and feel frustrated, taking prescription medications for life, and not getting real results. Let us build a customized program just for you, based on your unique metabolism.
Diabetes and prediabetes are preventable diseases.
