Today, the number of people across the globe affected by diabetes is growing is soaring at an alarming rate. The disease is becoming so prevalent that it represents one of the most challenging public health problems of the 21st Century. At the office of The DOCS, we provide the nutritional and dietary guidance required to help control blood sugar levels in support of improved health and wellness.
According to statistics from the American Diabetes Association in just the United States, almost thirty million children and adults have the disease. Diabetes is a complex metabolic disorder that impairs the body’s ability to produce or use insulin effectively to regulate blood sugar levels. Unfortunately, over time elevated blood sugar levels can cause damage throughout the body with many complications to one’s health and overall wellbeing. Diabetes contributes to the development of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, eye problems, nerve impairment and medical issues in the extremities.
To prevent, manage, and treat the consequences of this disease requires the services of a skilled nutritionist and the involvement of a multidisciplinary group of healthcare professionals. By providing a nutritional analysis, our office will design a meal plan to help you lower your blood sugar levels. We also encourage weight control and as part of an effective approach for the management of diabetes. In fact, studies prove that a weight loss as little as 5% can reduce blood sugar levels to a manageable or even a completely healthy level. We’ll give you lots of information on dietary dos and don’ts as well as delicious recipes and satisfying meal planning so that you can stay at a comfortable weight that will add years to your life and restore your overall well being.
At the office of The DOCS, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our practice and the many services we provide, give our office a call today.
