Diabetes in Canada
Diabetes is one of the most common causes of chronic disease in Canada. This condition results in a build up of glucose (sugar) in the blood because the body is unable to properly utilize the glucose for energy. This results in a range of symptoms and future complications if blood sugar is not adequately controlled.
Type 2 diabetes is preventable and very treatable with naturopathic medicine. Through dietary guidance, lifestyle intervention as well as supplementation with vitamins, nutrients and herbs, your Naturopathic Doctor can help to regulate your blood sugar, often without the use of medication.
If you have been told by your doctor that you are pre-diabetic, now is the time to act. You have the opportunity now to see a Naturopathic Doctor and prevent a diagnosis of diabetes in the future.
