Antibiotics Tied to Diabetes risk

Did you know that by 2020 half of the US population will be diabetic.  Our diets are horrible.  We eat too many processed foods, high carb diets, soft drinks that destroy our gut (which leads to diabetes), and barely touch a vegetable.  But we unfortunately believe that only diet leads to diabetes.  Research has shown :

  •  those who filled 2 to 4 prescriptions had a 23% higher risk for diabetes
  •  those who filled 5 or more had a 53% higher risk

I mentioned soda's and the gut in the paragraph above, why?  In a 2015 study scientist suggest that antibiotics may disrupt gut biota, causing changes in insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance, which can lead to diabetes (Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, Sept 2015).

What we put into our system is so important on how it effects our whole body.  It may be helping on system but hurting another.   Our clinic focuses on Functional Medicine to teach patients with diabetes about all the factors that effect their health.  Wouldn't you like to know how to prevent diabetes, not only by diet but by other outside factors.  If you would like to see how we can change your diet and how we can help support your digestive organs, please join us for a very easy "10 day Blood Sugar Cleanse".  We will work with your diet. We explain why some food that you make think are healthy are actually bad for you, provide you supplementation to help rebuild your system, and explain to you how other outside factors can make diabetes worse.  You do not have to be Diabetic participate in this program.  We encourage people you are just trying to change their lifestyle.  One small step, helps to empower you on your health choices.  As I always say, "it is about the quality of life and not the quantity."
