Learn How to Optimize
Achieving optimal diabetes control requires an innovative approach to treatment. A strict diabetic diet, along with a wellness regimen that integrates nutritional strategies with traditional medicines is the best strategy for maximum results.
Conventional wisdom dictates that we center around strict blood sugar control...and nothing else.
This simplified approach can actually hasten the progression of the most common form of diabetes and does nothing to address the damage it causes.
A new approach is needed because the conventional wisdom has failed us. Over the past 20 years, the number of adults diagnosed with the disease has more than doubled, and children are being diagnosed in alarming numbers.
It is crucial to understand the ways in which blood glucose causes damage and take active steps to interrupt these processes.
To achieve greater diabetes control, we need to look beyond blood tests and start protecting patients against the devastating effects of high blood sugar.
The Diabetes Damage Cascade
Glycation and oxidative stress are central to the damage caused by high blood sugar. Unfortunately, neither of them figures into conventional treatment for diabetes, which is generally concerned only with blood sugar control.
Glycation occurs when glucose reacts with protein, resulting in sugar-damaged proteins called advanced glycation end products (AGEs).
One well-known AGE is glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c). HbA1c is created when glucose molecules bind to hemoglobin in the blood.
Glycated proteins increase inflammation, damaging cell membranes and ultimately causing cell death. Inhibiting glycation protects the cells and prevents damage to internal organs.
Recent clinical trials showed that a 1% reduction in HbA1c correlated with a 21% decrease in risk of diabetic complications.
Measuring HbA1c in the blood can help determine the overall exposure of hemoglobin to glucose, which yields a picture of long-term blood glucose levels.
Oxidative stress is also linked high blood sugar. Charged oxygen molecules, produced from high blood sugar, damage cells of the heart, brain, eyes, and kidneys.
Groundbreaking diabetes research
is leading the way towards some amazing innovations in prevention and treatment.
What's sad is how the medical establishment refuses to acknowledge alternative therapies.
Your doctor either doesn't know about it or doesn't want to know about it (and we're not sure which is worse).
