Diabetes Mellitus

Type II Diabetes is a common, long-term, serious medical condition particularly associated with the way the human body metabolizes glucose. This disease develops when the human organism becomes resistant to the hormone INS or unable to produce enough amount of INS. A number of factors that increase the risk of type II diabetes have been identified: obesity, lack of physical activity, polycystic ovarian syndrome, a positive family history, abdominal fat and/or age over 45.

 

Diagnosis of Real Causes & Treatment of Diabetes Mellitus

  • Gradual restoration of cellular function
  • Personalized therapeutic protocols, without chemical residues and excipients
  • Treating the real causes
  • Therapeutic formulas that work alone or in combination with any other medication
  • Adopting a Molecular / Therapeutic Nutrition Plan

People suffering from type II diabetes often notice symptoms that among other include:

Common Symptoms of Diabetes Type II

  • Dizziness
  • Increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Fatigue
  • Increased hunger
  • Frequent bacterial
  • Fungal infections
  • Blurred vision
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Slow-healing wounds.

 

Your Health Specialist will address a series of targeted questions to you, to assess whether your symptoms could be indicative of type II diabetes. Then your specialist may recommend specialized blood tests or other molecular-level diagnostic tests to identify possible hormonal and/or biochemical imbalances. Your personalized treatment plan will be based upon the diagnostic tests results, the symptoms described and your medical history overall.

Your Specialist will explain the components, duration and health benefits of your personalized treatment plan. This treatment plan will be accompanied by a Molecular Nutrition program that will be compiled after a distinct consultation with our Molecular Nutritionist and will aim towards achieving even higher levels of health and well-being along with alleviating not only the symptoms but the true causes of type II diabetes.
