The complications of Diabetes are numerous and often devastating, including heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, nerve damage (neuropathy), kidney damage, eye damage (diabetic retinopathy), foot damage (sometimes leading to toe, foot, or leg amputation), hearing impairment, skin conditions (including bacterial and fungal infections), Alzheimer’s disease, and the list goes on and on. With 1 out of 11 people suffering complications from Diabetes, this is an epidemic that needs more effective preventative measures and more outreach.
This is where functional medicine comes in. By applying functional medicine parameters to lab testing and doing an extensive evaluation of your overall lifestyle and health history, we are able to detect and reverse issues leading to Type-2 Diabetes. If you’ve already been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, we work to find the root cause and correct it, often alleviating many, if not all, of the associated symptoms.
