What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a serious health issue that is either caused by the pancreas’ inability to produce insulin or by the body’s improper use of insulin. When our body consumes food or a beverage, the digestive system begins to break them down into glucose or sugar. The sugar then goes through our bloodstream and is transferred to our body’s cells via insulin. As a result of diabetes, the sugar in the body builds up in the blood, gets separated by the kidneys and gets flushed out of the body as urine.

Common Types of Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes – Also known as insulin dependent diabetes or juvenile diabetes. This type of diabetes usually affects people under the age of 20. With this form, the pancreas produces very little to no insulin. There are about 1.25 million Americans suffering from type 1 diabetes.
Type 2 Diabetes – Also known as non-insulin dependent diabetes. This occurs when the pancreas does not produce sufficient insulin levels; if the body is resistant to insulin effects; or both. This is the most common type of diabetes and there are about 29 million Americans suffering from this disease.
Gestational Diabetes – This affects women during pregnancy. Women without diabetes before their pregnancy, may begin to have high levels of glucose during their pregnancy. This can often develop into type 2 diabetes.

The exact causes of diabetes are still being determined. However, below are various factors that place people at risk of being diagnosed with diabetes.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Diabetics

At Advanced Chiropractic Relief, we recommend regular chiropractic adjustments for diabetic patients. This helps establish efficient and effective communication between the nervous system and the pancreas. With chiropractic care, Dr. Johnson can help correct spine misalignment, also known as subluxation, and promote a healthy spine and nervous system, improving immune system and hormonal functions. This will allow the pancreas and all of the organs to function at optimal levels. We can also help patients suffering from diabetes with nutritional and dietary guidance and help develop customized exercise programs.
