WE CAN HELP YOU STOP DIABETES IN ITS TRACKS
Revivify Medical Spa
Diabetes is a widespread illness that affects close to 10% of the population of the United States, with more than 1.5 new cases diagnosed each year. Moreover, more than 84 million adult Americans have prediabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association. So how do we stop diabetes in its tracks?
What Is Diabetes?
Before we learn about how to stop diabetes, let’s get to know it better. This is a disease that occurs when your blood sugar is too high. Blood glucose is the body’s primary source of energy, and it comes from the food you eat.
The pancreas produces the hormone insulin. Insulin helps the glucose to reach the cells so they can use it for energy. Diabetes develops when the body doesn’t make enough insulin, or it doesn’t use it well, leaving too much sugar in the blood.
Although type 2 diabetes can affect anyone regardless of age, race, and gender, some people have more of a risk factor, these include:
- Individuals over the age of 45
- Anyone who is overweight
- Those with a family history
- Poor diet
- Anyone who leads a sedentary lifestyle
The good news is that many of us are still in time to help prevent this with a little help from Revivify Medical Spa.
The Relation Between Diabetes and Hormone Imbalances
Researchers have found a link between age-related hormone imbalance and diabetes. As we get older, our body produces fewer hormones, including the human growth hormone.
In the case of women, hormone levels before and during menopause are affected, which results in unpleasant menopause symptoms like hot flashes, trouble sleeping, and mood changes.
These imbalances, however, aren’t just a nuisance; they can affect blood glucose levels and could potentially lead to diabetes.
Some studies reveal an association between insufficient sleep and the development of insulin resistance, which can lead to type 2 diabetes. In a new study, researchers found a biological reason for this association in men, an imbalance between their testosterone and cortisol hormones.
How to Correct Hormone Imbalances and Prevent Diabetes
There are many hormone replacements therapies on the market. However, the most effective remedy is the bioidentical hormone replacement therapy BioTE®.
BioTE® supplies the body with those missing or unbalanced hormones with compounded hormone pellets that identically mirror the chemical structure of human hormones.
The small pellets, which are roughly the size of a grain of rice, are placed under the skin and can provide continual hormone therapy for three to six months.
By regulating the hormone levels, you can slow down the aging process and prevent this condition.
Losing Weight Can Help Prevent the Disease
Being obese or even a little overweight can increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Luckily with some simple lifestyle change and a balanced medically supervised diet, you can lose the excess weight and stop the condition in its tracks.
Even if you already have type 2 diabetes, a medically supervised low-carbohydrate diet like the Ideal Protein can help improve the management of diabetes and other metabolic syndromes.
Controlling the amount and quality of carbohydrates you consume can reduce high blood sugar levels, and in some cases, it can lower the number of medications required to manage type 2 diabetes.
Aside from lowering blood glucose levels, studies have shown that patients on the Ideal Protein Protocol also had significant improvements in their blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels.
