Can You Reverse Metabolic Conditions Like Diabetes and Thyroid Disorders?
First, let’s define what it means to “reverse” diabetes. What we mean by “reverse diabetes” is that we find and address the root causes of the disease, which, in turn, results in lower blood sugars.
So, here’s how this works:
As the patient starts getting healthy again and the blood sugars decline, the need for the drugs gradually decreases as well. As the need for the drugs decreases, their regular doctor, whoever it is that typically prescribes their drugs, can then lower the dosage as necessary when the time comes, and may even be able to eliminate the drug(s) entirely.
For example, we had a patient whose A1C was a whopping 14.9 when he presented to our clinic. He was taking Metformin as well as insulin and still could not get his numbers under control. We began treatment, and gradually, his blood sugars came down, and his doctor lowered his dosage accordingly. After a little under six months of care at our clinic, his A1C dropped to a normal, healthy 5.5, and he was able to get off all of his drugs. That was several years ago, and as of this writing, he is still not taking any medication.
That is not an unusual scenario at our clinic. We see this happen often. How do we accomplish this on such a consistent basis? Well, we make every effort to work as a team with both the patient and their regular doctor to help that patient get as healthy as their body will let them. Obviously, like all medical professions, we have our limitations. Sometimes, there is an extensive amount of damage- often permanent- that we will have to accept and work around, such as the removal of a kidney, an amputation, a previous heart attack, cancer, or some other damage caused by diabetes or other condition, that may slow or hinder care. But that does not mean that the patient cannot “reverse” their diabetes and get healthy again.
As you can see, our clinic takes an entirely different approach to care.
Omaha Integrated Health utilizes a wide variety of exhaustive in-depth laboratory tests frequently neglected by mainstream healthcare professionals in order to determine why each patient is afflicted with diabetes and its related symptoms. Because we understand that each patient is unique, we work to develop customized care based on each patient’s particular healthcare needs.
If you’ve been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, thyroid problems, or live with pain, our team is here to help with specific treatments designed to suit your unique needs.
