Diabetes is a condition that can be greatly influenced by dietary and lifestyle changes. In fact, many people can potentially avoid medications if properly coached to make healthy, blood sugar-friendly choices. I help my patients improve their blood sugar levels through well-researched dietary plans, focusing on whole foods rather than encouraging sugar-free (but still unhealthy) options. Naturopathic treatments can improve the body’s ability to control blood sugars, improve insulin resistance, and prevent long term complications such as nerve and kidney damage.If you are in a state where diabetes has progressed, there are a number of supportive treatments I can provide in order to improve quality of life and possibly restore some function back to those organs.
Treatment goals for diabetes:
- Improved insulin sensitivity
- Control blood sugars through healthy dietary choices
- Prevent and treat nerve damage
- Prevent and treat eye damage
- Prevent and treat kidney damage
