Diabetes Type II

Diabetes: The Silent Epidemic of Modern Times

Diabetes, with its far-reaching consequences, has fast emerged as one of the most pressing health challenges of our age. Encompassing variations from Type 1 to Type 2 and gestational diabetes, this condition affects more than just sugar metabolism – it can influence every function in your body.

Do you find yourself constantly thirsty, frequently urinating, or battling unexplained fatigue? These might be subtle nudges from your body, signaling a possible diabetic tendency.

Is This You?

Are you often burdened by inexplicable fatigue, even with adequate rest?

Does your thirst seem insatiable, paired with frequent restroom visits?

Have you been told that “your sugar is a bit on the higher side” but didn’t think much of it or your doctor said “it’s still in a reasonable range”?

Such experiences often denote an underlying blood sugar instability that warrants attention.

Decoding Pre-Diabetes & Diabetes Symptoms

While symptoms can vary based on the type of diabetes, common signs include:

  • Increased thirst and urination
  • Sudden weight changes without changing diet or exercise
  • Persistent hunger, even after meals
  • Fatigue and irritability
  • Sleep issues and mood swings
  • Vision disturbances or recurrent infections

The Conventional Approach to Diabetes

In mainstream medicine, the conventional approach gravitates towards artificially controlling glucose levels using medications like Metformin, or insulin injections.

While these interventions might help regulate blood sugar levels when people are in a life-threatening situations, they often fall short in addressing the myriad contributing factors behind the disorder that most diabetes doctors miss.

People are often told that type 2 diabetes treatment is standard and it requires medications that they will have to take for the rest of their lives.

The Functional Medicine Approach To Diabetes

Within the Functional Medicine model, pre-diabetes and diabetes is understood to be a mitochondrial disease, not just about what you eat or don’t eat.

This means glucose is unable to get into your cell, therefore staying in the blood stream continuing to raise blood sugars.

Therefore, we address the root cause of why glucose isn’t able to get into the cell. There are many reason why glucose can not get into your cell, such as:

  • Environmental Toxins
  • Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals
  • Infections
  • Mold
  • Disglycemia
  • and more
