Why We Treat Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 Diabetes is one of the fastest-growing preventable diseases in the world, with more than 25 million children and adults in the U.S. diagnosed and millions more added to that number annually. Diabetes doesn’t just involve the pancreas, where the problem originates. It also affects the health of the heart, kidneys, eyes, and nerves. With proper diet and exercise, the complications associated with diabetes can be prevented or even reversed.
By incorporating healthy lifestyle changes, including regular activity, a diet rich in whole grains, fruit, vegetables, and lean protein, and good self-care, you can experience more energy, maintain a healthy weight, eliminate blood sugar swings, and prevent the need for drug or insulin therapy.
