TYPE 2 DIABETES
"Sugar diabetes" is a condition that requires urgent attention and prompt treatment since it can cause severe and often times irreversible damage. Chronically elevated blood sugar due to insulin resistance or lack of insulin production by the pancreas can lead to the condition we know as diabetes (though there are several subtypes). It is the leading cause of amputation and blindness. A comprehensive lifestyle program with adherence to dietary practices often leads to medication reduction and in some cases disease reversal.
