Diabetes

Five million people are expected to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes by 2025. Around 35% of the UK population are classed as pre-diabetic, meaning that with lifestyle and dietary intervention they are more likely to develop type-2 diabetes.

Type-2 diabetes used to be referred to as adult-onset diabetes, a disease that may develop during our adult years. However, East Sussex Healthcare recently revealed to me that the youngest patient with type-2 diabetes was 8 years old!

Diabetes increases your risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, blindness, limb amputation and kidney failure. Type-3 diabetes has become the term to describe the hypothesis that Alzheimer’s disease, a major cause of dementia, is triggered by a type of insulin resistance that occurs in the brain.

“Every year diabetes causes 27,000 heart attacks and 100,000 cases of heart failure”
Reversing diabetes is a term that refers to a significant long-term improvement in insulin sensitivity in people suffering with type-2 diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes that are able to get their HbA1c below 42 mmol/mol (6%) without taking diabetes medication are said to have reversed their diabetes, putting it into remission.

If you have been diagnosed with type-2 diabetes or you are aware that you are pre-diabetic, you can work with me to help reverse the process.
