All About Type 1 - Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes is much more common than Type 1 Diabetes. These two conditions are very different. In fact some authorities believe they should have quite different names. Type 1 Diabetes does not occur due to poor diet. Current research indicates it may arise due to a virus however the real causes are not known. 


The potential damage that Type 1 Diabetes causes includes, loss of limbs, loss of sight and ultimately loss of life. There are many natural options to support your body and minimise damage.


The naturopathic approach to helping people with Type 1 Diabetes is a rigorous one! You will find the strict guidelines quite different from those given generally to people with Diabetes. It is important to accept the diet affects many aspects of health. It can be tempting to just focus on Blood Sugar levels and having the correct amount of insulin. While it is true insulin will decrease high blood sugar, damage from poor quality foods can undermine your health in many ways. Poor health will also make you more likely to suffer from both the complications of Type 1 Diabetes and other health problems. 


The Natural approach results in improvements in Blood Sugar levels and decreases the likelihood of severe complications. Diet and nutrients play a central role, herbal medicine and lifestyle changes are also part of the process.
