Celebrate National Diabetes Awareness Month with AICA Conyers

Nov 1, 2016

The Chiropractors at AICA Conyers are offering important information around type 2 diabetes and how Chiropractic care can help you prevent or manage this condition.

Over 100 million Americans are affected with one particular form of diabetes and another 200,000 are forced to receive emergency treatment because of its effects.

Check out the following information to understand what diabetes is, how it develops and what you can do to support your personal health.

Type 2 Diabetes

Although diabetes comes in a number of forms, type 2 diabetes is the most common as it affects over 80 million people throughout the United States.

Type 2 diabetes can develop over time and affects people who become resistant to the insulin their body produces.

People who have type 2 diabetes are forced to take insulin shots every day to regulate their levels, while also maintaining a particular diet that is void of refined sugars, process carbohydrates, and other unhealthy substances.

Type 2 Diabetes Management with Chiropractic Care

Type 2 diabetes is completely manageable and its effects can be avoided with Chiropractic care.

Patients can prevent or control their condition by following through with a particular diet that consists of proteins and lean fats. According to the American Diabetes Association, type 2 diabetes can be prevented by:

  • Avoiding cigarettes and alcohol
  • Exercising at least three times each week
  • Maintaining a healthy diet
  • Avoiding red meat (e.g. bacon, hot dogs, prime ribs, pork, etc.)
  • Avoiding foods that are high in sodium and iron
  • Avoiding foods that contain trans fats (e.g. fast-food, margarine)
  • Avoiding refined carbohydrates and processed foods (e.g. white rice, white bread)
