According to the World Health Organization, healthy diet, regular physical activity, maintaining a normal body weight and avoiding tobacco use can prevent or delay the onset of type-2 diabetes. Many of us are well aware of this, but for various reasons we struggle to consume adequate amounts of vital nutrients and maintain a normal body weight.
The nutritional goals for diabetes are generally aimed at attaining or maintaining optimal metabolic functions; these include maintaining normal – or close to normal – blood glucose levels, improving blood lipid and lipoprotein profiles, and reducing blood pressure.
Studies have shown that specific nutrients offer benefits for people at risk or already living with diabetes. The most widely reported nutrients include chromium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, vitamin B3, and antioxidants such as vitamins C, E, and selenium.
Intravenous Vitamin Therapy
Intravenous vitamin protocols have been used for many years for general nutrition, weight loss, performance enhancement, and aiding in the improvement and prevention of many medical conditions. Dr. Porcelli and his staff offer a wide range of intravenous vitamin formulas, including one specifically for diabetics. In addition, we offer several vitamin injections for those who do not get adequate amounts in their daily diets, or for those who need to increase certain vitamin intake to relieve or prevent diabetes and other conditions.
Vitamin therapy IV’s and injections are infused directly into your system giving you the full benefit of the vitamin and mineral treatment blended specially for you. Our Trim® products contain ingredients that are certified pure and are absorbed 100% into your system. Our prescribed, customized treatments are not only more beneficial to your body, they are cost effective, too.
Once your body is fueled with adequate levels of nutrients, it is easier to lose extra pounds and maintain a healthy weight.
It is well known that obesity is a key risk factor for developing type-2 diabetes. The effects of obesity on insulin resistance make weight loss an important objective for people at risk or with diabetes. Studies have shown that weight loss in people with type-2 diabetes is associated with decreased insulin resistance, improved measures of glycaemia and dyslipidemia, and reduced blood pressure.
If you are overweight, you are at risk for developing diabetes and many other unwanted, sometimes fatal, health conditions. It can be very frustrating and leave you feeling defeated when you try numerous diets, only to have to weight return. It truly is no surprise when people give up on their weight loss goals, however the benefits of losing extra pounds far outweigh the consequences of carrying them around year after year. Before you give up and give in to notion that you are destined to eventually get diabetes, we want you to know that medical weight loss programs have been proven to help people just like you lose the weight and keep it off.
Our professional staff of physicians and registered nurses will discuss your weight loss goals and devise a safe and healthy way for you to lose weight quickly and easily without pharmaceuticals or amphetamines. While others are using treatments that artificially speed up your metabolism and ultimately cause you to gain the weight back, we use natural vitamin and hormone therapies that promote healthy weight loss with no additives.
By following the custom regimen Dr. Porcelli and his staff design for you, you will find that you maintain energy while feeling nutritionally satisfied and reducing your chances of developing diabetes. If you have already been diagnosed with diabetes and are overweight, Dr. Porcelli will discuss with you the benefits of losing even just a small amount of weight. After getting to know you, he will develop an individualized program just for you to follow with proven medical protocols behind it.
