Diabetes

For 2,000 years diabetes has been recognized as a devastating and deadly disease. In Roman times it was referred to as “sweet death.” Today, according to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 21 million people in the United States have diabetes, with about 90 to 95% having type 2 diabetes. In 2001, the most recent year for which US figures are posted, 934,550 Americans died from out-of-control symptoms of this disease.

If you are an American diabetic, you will probably have been told that you can consume sugary and sugar-producing foods multiple times daily as long as you take enough insulin to cover yourself. Sadly, when treating diabetes there has been little recognition of the fact that high levels of insulin are just as dangerous over time as sugar is.

Prolonged exposure to high levels of insulin can be very detrimental. Glucose-lowering drugs usually succeed in lowering blood sugar levels, but may increase the death rate from heart attacks. These drugs also are associated with weight gain, elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, stomach pain, drowsiness, and headache.

How we treat Diabetes at LifeWorks

The most important clue to treating diabetes is for the patient to understand his disease. As one connects his lifestyle habits with his condition he begins to see how there might be a way out of the mess he is in. Over time, and with careful monitoring, it may be possible for him to reduce his medication and in some cases, cease it altogether.

Our practitioners and dieticians take the time to teach the basics of a healthy lifestyle, which is an important part of recovery from diabetes. You can regain your good health and not just be symptom suppressed. LifeWorks can help you do it.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
