Diabetes Type II

 

I have helped many of my diabetic type II patients lower their blood glucose levels, lose weight and lower blood pressure with our functional medicine approach.

I routinely find many people coming in to see me for various reasons I uncover that are pre-diabetic, insulin resistant or hypoglycemic (low blood sugar)

I start my evaluation by having my patients fill out an extremely detailed 240 question medical form called Metabolic Assessment Form and Neurotransmitter Assessment Form thathelps me uncover which systems in their body are not functioning correctly or are out of balance.

You can't blame type II diabetes on just having "bad genes". Even if you have a genetic predisposition for diabetes the major causes are from your lifestyle, nutrition, exercise, toxins, poor diet, chronic stress, microbes and allergens.

I then take all of this information and uncover which systems in your body are out of balance and develop an individual personalized treatment plan that I go over with you and your spouse (if you have one) at my report of findings (ROF) where I spend a great amount of time outlining how to get your body back in balance. We don't treat symptoms, we fix the underlying causes that produce your symptoms.

One very important part of your treatment plan is to give you specific nutritional supplements to help you reset and correct metabolic imbalances, improve insulin function, balance blood sugar, and reduce inflammation.

Along with your 240 question assessment forms there are some tests we use to find the root causes of why your body is out of balance.
