CONDITIONS WE CAN HELP WITH...

Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition where the body doesn't make enough insulin or can't use its own insulin effectively. Insulin is the hormone that regulates blood sugar and as a result of insulin not being produced, or used, efficiently glucose (sugar) builds up in the blood. Over time this imbalance could cause such problems as: heart disease, kidney disease, neuropathy and vision loss. Ultimately this could lead to kidney failure, blindness and lower limb amputations.

There are 2 types of diabetes:

Type 1 diabetes is a condition where the pancreas stops producing insulin all together meaning that insulin is required. Those that have type 1 diabetes must take insulin for the rest of their lives. This type of diabetes is fairly rare.

Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes and is directly linked to an unhealthy diet and inactive lifestyle. The most common cause of type 2 diabetes is obesity.

Symptoms of diabetes include: excessive urination caused by rises in blood glucose levels which leads to excessive thirst and a dry feeling in the mouth, fatigue, irritability, skin conditions, blurry vision and dry, tingling skin.

A Nutrition Mission nutritional therapist will always work taking into consideration the drugs that have been prescribed by a doctor. A big consideration with diabetes is to try to balance blood sugar levels which can be done by making small but regular changes to the diet.

I have had a long standing interest in nutrition, from my work as a Personal Trainer. While I have supported many clients in making changes to their bodies through diet and exercise, it has been so valuable for me to be a client and be at the receiving end of your considerable expertise. Having someone such as Nutrition Mission, take a look at your nutrition and lifestyle is so very helpful, as they bring a perspective and knowledge that you cannot have for yourself, about yourself
