A group of diseases, diabetes mellitus, affects how the body uses glucose or blood sugar–an essential source of energy for the brain and the cells that make up the muscles and tissues. Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are both chronic conditions. The latter form refers to problems with how the body uses insulin. Those with Type 1 diabetes do not produce insulin. Type 1 is typically diagnosed during childhood, whereas Type 2 diabetes generally develops gradually over many years.
With our broad and comprehensive approach to diabetes, we, the New York Center for Integrative Medicine in Manhattan, can:
Yes, individuals diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes may experience complete remission. Our founder and director, Dr. Robert Kachko, regularly sees such transformations in our holistic practice.
Our clinicians partner with patients first by ordering comprehensive testing so they can best understand the nature of the condition (how it affects your body). From there, treatment protocols are personalized to aid in sustained blood sugar regulation. Additionally, many of our patients have been able to reduce their reliance on “traditional” therapies, such as pharmaceutical drugs and insulin administration, to lower the amount of sugar in the bloodstream.
So, in some cases, the path to sustained diabetes control and even remission may be exclusively rooted in nutraceuticals and lifestyle modifications. As with all treatments at the NY Center for Integrative Medicine, we develop one-of-a-kind plans. These plans focus on using potent yet safe nutritional supplements and botanical or herbal medicines.
