Are you worried about your blood sugar regulation? Don't wait until diabetes, act now!

You may be diabetic. Or maybe you have a family member with diabetes and for that reason you are at increased risk for problems with blood sugar regulation yourself. Or you may have been told you are “pre-diabetic” or “insulin resistant.” Maybe you are reading this page because you just don’t feel right, and you have a hunch that blood sugar has something to do with it. Whatever the case, you have come to the right place. I can help. According to the National Diabetes Statistics Report from 2017, there were 30.3 million Americans with diabetes in 2012, and 84.5 millions with pre-diabetes. In addition, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if we do not change course, 1 in 3 Americans will have diabetes by 2050. Neither statistics nor predictions for blood sugar regulation of American people are very cheerful.

Where are you on the continuum?

Here is some background to help answer the question.
  • Green zone. Most of us are born with healthy blood sugar regulation and remain healthy for a very long time.
  • Yellow zone. For various reasons, the metabolic pathways can start working less efficiently and you can see an increase in your blood sugar numbers: fasting glucose above 100mg/l, HgA1C above 5.6. Unfortunately, you are now in the yellow zone (pre-diabetic). This is certainly the time to make changes in your diet and lifestyle that will bring you back to the green zone.
  • Red zone. If you miss this opportunity you’ll most likely move on to the red zone: diabetes. It is estimated that by the time we are diagnosed with diabetes we have already lost 60% of the pancreatic beta cells that secrete insulin. We won’t be able to regenerate them, not quite yet, although scientists are working on it.

How I can help you

If you have diabetes in your family, you are at a higher risk for getting it yourself. You probably want to talk to me about prevention.

If you are in the pre-diabetes or yellow zone we’ll work on your eating habits to:

  1. Reduce the carbohydrate load of your meals

    Improve insulin sensitivity of your cells

    Give your pancreas a chance to recuperate

    Support your healthy liver functioning

    Lose weight if needed

If you have diabetes, I can work together with you and your doctor to lower blood sugar and hemoglobin A1C and, hopefully, reduce your medication.

Above all, you don’t have to deal with this alone. I am here to help.
