An Overview of Diabetes
Diabetes is classified as a metabolism disorder. Metabolism is the way the human body uses digested food for growth and energy. Diabetes is one of many health conditions that involve problems with the hormone known as insulin. In a completely healthy body, the pancreas releases insulin to help the body store and use sugar and fat from food. People are often diagnosed with diabetes when the pancreas produces very little to no insulin, or when the body does not respond to insulin correctly.
There are three types of diabetes: type 1, type 2 and gestational.
The following symptoms are associated with diabetes in many cases. However, it is important to note that certain people with type 2 diabetes will have symptoms so mild the disease may go unnoticed.
- Extreme thirst
- Frequent urination
- Extreme hunger
- Blurry vision
- Weight loss (type 1)
- Pain, numbness and tingling in the hands and feet (type2)
Prevention, early detection and treatment of this disease are critical.
Help Prevent Diabetes with Medical Weight Loss
As the obesity epidemic rises, so does the prevalence of diabetes. The good news is many cases of diabetes can be avoided with a healthy lifestyle. It is important individuals of all ages lose excess body fat, drink plenty of water, follow a healthy diet and sleep well in order to fight off diabetes.
If an individual is worried about their weight and their risk of developing diabetes, they are encouraged to contact Tyler Wellcare to learn more about the HCG medical weight loss program.
The HCG medical weight loss program involves the use of a carefully planned diet of healthy, quality food and HCG injections, drops or pellets. Individuals involved in this weight loss program have continued medical support so many are able to exercise and develop healthy habits for lifelong weight maintenance.
It is important to note that the actual HCG injections, drops or pellets do not cause the weight loss. The carefully planned diet is what causes weight loss. HCG’s role in the diet plan is to help the body balance its metabolism, digestion and much more so it performs at an optimal level.
