Diabetes Q & A

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a common chronic health condition in which your body doesn’t properly metabolize sugar. It results when you don’t make enough insulin or your body can’t utilize insulin to keep blood sugar within a normal, healthy range. When left untreated, uncontrolled diabetes can lead to serious health complications.

What are the symptoms of diabetes?

The following signs and symptoms may indicate you have diabetes:

  • Frequent infections
  • Blurred vision
  • Slow-healing sores
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability 
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Extreme hunger
  • Frequency urination
  • Increased thirst

If left untreated, diabetes can cause nerve damage, kidney damage, heart problems, foot damage, eye problems, skin issues, hearing problems, and even dementia or depression.

What are the risk factors for diabetes?

Diabetes is sometimes genetic but is also largely linked with lifestyle habits. The following factors increase your risk of developing diabetes:

  • Family history of diabetes
  • Genetics
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Older age
  • Black, Hispanic, Native American, or Asian ethnicities
  • Prior gestational diabetes
  • High blood pressure, cholesterol, or triglycerides
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome in women

Adopting healthy lifestyle habits can greatly reduce your risk of developing diabetes or even reverse the condition in some cases.

What is the treatment for diabetes?

Your chiropractor completes an exam and reviews your medical history and symptoms. They develop a personalized diabetes treatment plan that may include:

Nutrition Response Testing®

Nutrition Response Testing uses neurological reflex points to test for deficiencies, immune system challenges, and food intolerances. Doing so allows your provider to develop a custom nutrition plan as part of your diabetes treatment.

Weight loss 

Losing weight is one of the most effective ways to reduce diabetes symptoms and better control your blood sugar. Your chiropractor develops a personalized weight loss program using diet, supplements, and exercise to help you achieve your goal weight.

Dietary supplements

Taking dietary supplements can improve overall health and wellness, and better control diabetes or prediabetes. Paladin Chiropractic stocks its shelves with whole food supplements from highly reputable Standard Process®, NutriWest®, Biotics®, Pure Encapsulations®, and Anabolic Laboratories.
