Anti-Fragility Health Clinic

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic health condition that causes high blood sugar. When you eat food, namely foods that contain carbohydrates such as bread and fruit, your body breaks it down into glucose, which your cells use for energy.

If you have diabetes, your body can’t get the sugar from the bloodstream into your cells because you don’t make enough insulin, which is the hormone that gets the glucose from your blood into cells, or your cells have become resistant to the insulin.

There are three types of diabetes:

  • Type 1 diabetes - you don’t make insulin
  • Type 2 diabetes - your cells are resistant to insulin
  • Gestational diabetes - develops during pregnancy

Type 2 diabetes is the most common and usually develops in adults.

How do I know if I have diabetes?

The health care team at Anti-Fragility Health Clinic can determine if you have diabetes through a blood test. Common symptoms of diabetes include:

  • Extreme thirst and hunger
  • Weight loss despite a ravenous appetite
  • Frequent urination
  • Tingling in the hands and feet
  • Blurry vision
  • Fatigue and irritability
  • Sores or infections that don’t seem to go away

Diabetes is a manageable illness, but can lead to serious health conditions such as heart and kidney disease if not controlled.

How can I improve my blood sugar?

The health care team at Anti-Fragility Health Clinic take a three-pronged approach to help you get both your diabetes and health under control.

Personalized nutrition plan

As the source of energy, and glucose, what you eat plays an important role in diabetes management. However, the team doesn’t provide a cookie-cutter diet plan, but works one-on-one with you to develop a personalized nutrition plan that fits your genetic and metabolic profile for better diabetes control.

Lifestyle management

What you eat is only one part of the puzzle when it comes to managing your diabetes lifestyle, since it affects health and blood sugar levels. The team at Anti-Fragility Health Clinic devise a structured lifestyle plan that includes diet, exercise, and relaxation.

Medication and supplements

Medication and supplements are sometimes necessary for diabetes management. The health care team monitors dosing and assesses for possible interactions with other medications or supplements and makes recommendations as needed.
