Controlling Diabetes
It is concerning that one in four Americans either have diabetes or at risk for developing the disease. Luckily, there are many cases of diabetes that can be reversed if the proper steps are taken soon enough.


Diabetes- Type I (Juvenile Diabetes)
Type I diabetes occurs as a result of the body's immune system malfunctioning and destroying cells within the pancreas that produce insulin. Conventional medicine cannot cure this form of diabetes in which most cases occur before age 20. However, if diagnosed soon enough, holistic therapies may be used to reverse the effects of this disease.


Diabetes-Type II
Type II diabetes is the more common form of diabetes mellitus; this disease affects over 90% of individuals with diabetes. This form of diabetes is not only completely preventable but also can be curable when holistic protocols are implemented early enough. The is something that conventional pharmaceuticals cannot say.


Diabetic Cardiovascular Disease
The higher an individual's blood sugar levels are, the higher their risk for developing diabetic heart disease and a life-threatening heart attack.


Is Leptin the Missing Key?
Leptin is a protein produced by fat cells and is responsible in regulating food intake and fat storage in the body. Type I and Type II diabetes are a direct result of leptin and insulin signaling malfunctions. Increased levels of leptin contribute to weight gain and difficulty with weight loss. Leptin is greatly responsible for insulin signaling and it ultimately determines insulin resistance. Thus, diabetes is not a disease of blood sugar, but more of an endocrine problem in which hormones are not properly made and utilized. Leptin blood levels should be routinely apart of managing a diabetic's care.
