As diabetes is becoming an increasing problem in America, what can you do to prevent or manage your diabetes in a healthy way? Our team at LifeWorks in Kansas City combines a variety of methods to lessen symptoms of diabetes through a balanced diet, exercise, and natural supplements. We can help you construct your diabetes diet plan and stick to it.
Managing Diabetes with Diet
While you should always consult with a doctor about your diabetes care, there are some changes you can make in your diet to lessen the effects that diabetes can have on your body. You may have been recently diagnosed or want to prevent a diagnosis. Working together with our professional team in Shawnee, KS, will give you the education you need to decide on your diabetes diet plan.
- Healthy Diet: Eat a diet low in sugar and fat and high in fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and lean proteins.
- Exercise: Move your body every day. You can go on walks, ride a bike, lift weights, or practice yoga.
- Natural Supplements: Specific supplements can help with diabetes by balancing blood sugar levels.
Implementing this diabetes diet plan into your life can work hand-in-hand with other treatments to keep your body healthy through your diabetes diagnosis. You do not need to fear your quality of life when you take steps to take control of your lifestyle choices.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help Patients with Diabetes?
Along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, chiropractic care can also help to manage your symptoms of diabetes. If you are suffering from neuropathy or numbness in your hands or joints, then our office in Kansas City can help treat those symptoms. Other effects from diabetes include limited joint movement, muscle pain, or carpal tunnel that can all be treated by a chiropractor.
At LifeWorks, we use a Comprehensive Care model consisting of pain relief, physical medicine, regenerative medicine, and chiropractic care. We believe in treating the root of the problem rather than covering it up with other treatments. For more information, schedule a consultation to learn about how our team can help.
