Diabetes and Functional Medicine

Dr Vaibhav Patel's natural approach for Diabetes.

Almost one-third of the population is said to have some type of diabetes, with a new diagnosis being made every 19 seconds, equating to almost 5,000 new diagnoses a day.

While some people believe that the only way to deal effectively with this disease involves taking insulin shots or using pumps, the reality is that a lot of people with diabetes can enhance their body's ability to use glucose simply by making some lifestyle changes. Most diabetics are sensitive to insulin as well so we want to also make sure we decrease insulin sensitivity so cells can uptake the glucose properly and use it for energy.  This is where Dr. Vaibhav Patel , your Nashville, TN functional medicine doctor can help.

Because Dr. Vaibhav Patel deals with the cause of your health problem versus just the symptoms, the body is better able to naturally stabilize its blood sugar on its own without the need for medication (or by requiring lower dosages of medications).  Change your lifestyle and you can possibly also change your diabetes risk or diagnosis.

Imagine how your life be different if you are able to manage your diabetes naturally and control it from gettting worse.

Holistic Functional Medicine approache to diabetes can be the answer you are looking for, and Dr. Vaibhav Patel can help you improve your health. Dr Vaibhav Patel has Dinner Seminar coming up to educate people on his approach and health in general.  If you are interested in learning more about Dr Patel's approach RSVP for his Dinner Seminar by calling his office at (615) 448-6845 or Fill out the Form below.
