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.

If I am honest there was a lot of things I was told that I already knew but I wasn't doing it and needed telling how to implement it and make it easy to remember. I feel so much healthier since receiving my plan and Nutrition Mission were so thorough with the information that understanding the plan made me determined to keep it up.
