What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a particular condition that develops when your body is unable to produce or process glucose (insulin). When you consume food, you body’s digestive system breaks down everything you at into glucose or sugars.
The glucose transfers throughout your body through your bloodstream and is transported to your body’s cells through the insulin your pancreas produce.
Under typical circumstances, your pancreas can produce enough insulin to manage the amount of sugar your body produces after digestion. However, diabetes prevents your pancreas from being able to produce enough or any insulin, which results in sugar building up in your blood.
Although there are numerous forms of diabetes, the three most common types are:
- Type 1 diabetes
- Type 2 diabetes
- Gestational diabetes
The precise cause of diabetes has not yet been determined. However, there are a number of variables that increases the risk for developing diabetes.
These variables include:
- Family history/genetics
- Spinal injuries
- Pancreas abnormalities
- Damaged nerves
- Abnormal immune system
- Personal lifestyle
What Is Type I Diabetes?
Type 1 diabetes refers to patients who are unable to produce insulin on their own. Most people who are affected by type 1 diabetes tend to fall below the age of 20.
What Is Type 2 Diabetes?
Type 2 diabetes is often referred to as “adult-onset diabetes” because it tends to develop over time and within people who are obese or lead sedentary lifestyles.
This particular type of diabetes speaks to patients who:
- Are not able to produce enough insulin to regulate their blood-sugar
- Are not able to process insulin
- Are not able to produce or process insulin
Snellville Chiropractic Treatment for Diabetes
The Chiropractors at AICA Snellville treat diabetic patients through a number of techniques and approaches. These include:
Offering a Specific Diet and Nutrition Program
What you consume has a profound impact on your ability to manage your diabetes. Our Chiropractors can give you specific plans that help you maintain a nutrient-rich diet that helps prevent your condition from worsening.
Establishing An Exercise Routine
Exerting yourself through physical activity is extremely important for managing diabetes. Exercise allows your body to take in as much oxygen as possible, which helps rid your body of harmful toxins.
Chiropractic Adjustments help remove subluxations and support a healthy nervous system, both of which affect how well you are able to manage your condition. A subluxation- spine allows your vital organs and internal systems to perform at their very best!
