Right now I’m going to share with you a few of the unknown secrets to success with Type 2 Diabetes.
These next 4 secrets are why a lot of doctors don’t like me. They’d like to gag me and keep me from telling you these secrets because it makes them look incompetent and inadequate. It’s not their fault. Their medical education is what taught them to think the way they do.
My education taught me to look at causes. Their education mainly taught them to treat the symptoms.
But you need to know the truth. And the truth is that there are very real factors that can be making your Type 2 Diabetes worse.
And I’m sorry to tell you that if your doctor hasn’t checked these things I am about tell you, then I believe he or she is not doing everything they can and there’s a good chance your condition is not being managed properly.
Potentially Deadly Mistake #1
Thinking the pancreas is the only organ involved in keeping your blood sugar normal.
This is a huge myth!
The organs and glands actually involved in blood sugar control are: Liver, Pancreas, Adrenal Glands and Thyroid.
Each of these parts needs to be tested and evaluated. If one of these organs or glands is not functioning correctly, it can make you have high blood sugar. If this is ignored, you’re just going to continue to get worse as time goes on.
Has your doctor taken the time to investigate the function of these organs or glands? Or have you been rushed into the exam room, had the doctor or nurse practitioner spend less than 10 minutes with you (barely looking in your face) and quickly written you a script and said “We’ll look at your numbers in six months. Good luck.”
With a couple of specialized tests, I can evaluate the function of the glands and organs listed above with a special comprehensive blood chemistry test and another test called DUTCH (Dried Urine Total Complete Hormone). These organs and glands must be investigated and their function measured.
Potentially Deadly Mistake #2
Not understanding that Inflammation in your body makes your Type 2 Diabetes worse.
Inflammation causes you to make more cortisol. High cortisol will make you insulin resistant. Now, the question that must be answered if you’re going to feel better is: Where is the inflammation coming from?
The two most common causes of inflammation are from food sensitivities and hidden infections in your stomach and intestines.
Food sensitivities mean that your immune system has decided that something you are eating is an invader.
Many people have bacterial overgrowths, yeast overgrowths, and parasites—but don’t notice any gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. This is why you can walk around with these things living in you for years.
Food sensitivities and GI infections cause your immune system to flare up–> inflammation increases–> Cortisol increases –> More insulin resistant = fatigue, no energy, weight gain, low libido, high blood pressure…a hot mess as some of my patients say!
Has your doctor tested for these? I do. I test every Type 2 Diabetic patient for them.
Potentially Deadly Mistake #3
Thinking Type 2 Diabetes is genetic.
Now obviously, you could have been born with a predisposition for developing diabetes.
Your environment—what you do to yourself, and what happens to you—is what really determines whether or not you develop Type 2 Diabetes.
Throwing your arms up and saying “well, there’s nothing I can do about it.”…Or, worse, a doctor who says, “It’s not surprising you have diabetes. It runs in your family.” This ignorant attitude handcuffs your body’s natural ability to heal. You must have the right attitude.
Let’s be clear: there is a time and place for medication. And certainly don’t ever stop taking any of your medications without talking to your doctor.
But more important is finding the cause for YOUR Type 2 Diabetes. Because treating the wrong thing is a waste of time and money.
Did your doctor sit down with you and really explain your condition? What it means?
I understand that Type 2 Diabetes is epidemic, and that a lot of people seem to think “its no big deal”, but it can ruin your life.
I want you to be brutally honest with yourself right now…
If your doctor is not investigating the factors I just talked about…
Well, then your doctor is probably blocking your ability to get better; to enjoy the life you deserve…the life you enjoyed before Diabetes.
You deserve better, don’t you? You need a doctor who can bring it all together for you. Please call us (586) 731-8840 and start finding real solutions to your type 2 Diabetes.
