What is Diabetes and how does it affect your health?

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that affects millions of people around the world. In brief, it is characterized by high levels of glucose in the blood, which can lead to serious health complications if left untreated. About 1 in 10 Americans have diabetes, and 1 in 5 don’t even know they have it.


Diabetes has a wide range of symptoms, some of which are increased thirst and urination, fatigue, weight loss, blurred vision and slow-healing wounds. When there is a lack of insulin production in the body or the body is unable to use insulin effectively, a diagnosis of diabetes could result.


Diagnosing diabetes involves testing for glucose levels in the blood and urine. If left untreated, diabetes can cause long-term damage to the heart, kidneys and eyesight. So, it really is important to understand what diabetes is and how it affects your health in order to prevent it or manage it properly.


How Red Light Therapy can help with Diabetes:

Red Light Therapy (Photobiomodulation) has been gaining popularity as an effective way to manage diabetes symptoms. It is a non-invasive and painless treatment that uses red and near-infrared light to stimulate cells in the body. It has been found to help regulate glucose levels, reduce inflammation, improve circulation, protect against diabetes-related complications, and potentially prevent diabetic brain disorders. Check out the conclusion of this study, "Our results demonstrate that tPBM can be an efficient innovative method for the treatment of microglial dysfunction caused by diabetes to prevent diabetic brain disorders and has the potential to be quickly introduced in clinical practice since tPBM is widely used for the therapy of brain diseases."


While the specific technical details of Red Light Therapy may vary, the whole-body Pods at The Wellness Center are the most advanced pods available, and emit red and near-infrared wavelengths of energy and have an impressive range of options to customize it's intensity, which means the power varies depending on the chosen protocol.


The three most common types of Diabetes and their causes:

Diabetes is a chronic condition that is caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, lifestyle and environmental factors like air pollution and extreme heat. There are several types of diabetes, but the most common are as follows:


  • Type 1, where the pancreas produces little to no insulin.

  • Type 2 diabetes, where the way the body processes blood sugar is affected.

  • Gestational diabetes, where high blood sugar affects pregnant women.


How to Live a healthy life with Diabetes:

Living with diabetes can be challenging, but it doesn't have to be overwhelming. According to KHealth.com, natural home remedies like Apple Cider Vinegar, Magnesium, Chromium, Aloe Vera, Cinnamon, Fenugreek, Ginseng, and probiotics can also be a helpful addition to your wellness plan. Discuss these options with your regular physician to determine what is best in your particular case.


While medications are the most common treatment option for managing diabetes, other lifestyle changes like the ones listed below are also very important:


  • Coming to The Wellness Center and taking the time to do red light therapy.

  • Eating a balanced diet with foods that are low in sugar and carbohydrates can help keep your blood sugar in check.

  • Regular exercise can also contribute to maintaining good health and managing your diabetes.

  • Keeping stress levels under control is a must for those living with diabetes, since stress can increase blood sugar levels and the risk of diabetes complications. So, be sure to take time to focus on activities that can help reduce stress to experience improvements in your overall health.

By following these tips and making the right lifestyle changes, you can live a healthier life with diabetes.
