Diabetes is a very common disease that refers to a body’s inability to use or produce the important hormone, insulin. Insulin is responsible for breaking down starches and sugars into energy for our bodies. When there is no insulin or not enough insulin, those sugars and fats remain in the bloodstream and over time will wreak havoc on your body. Type 2 diabetes is by far the most common type of the disease, and is often linked to obesity, inactivity and old age. It has been estimated that around 8 percent of the entire population of the United States has diabetes in one form or another.
Naturopathic Diabetes Treatment
Some of the most common symptoms of diabetes include significantly increased hunger and thirst, frequent urination, drowsiness, blurred vision, high blood pressure and slow-healing cuts or sores on the skin. Reoccurring infections can also be a sign of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be diagnosed at any age, and most of the time it is preventable. By staying active, exercising and eating healthy and nutritious foods, you can get control of your diabetes before it becomes an irreversible problem.
