Diabetes is a condition in which blood sugar levels are higher than the body’s normal levels because of abnormal insulin secretion. Insulin is a hormone that allows for blood glucose to be absorbed into cells and used as energy. Across the world, this condition is becoming a large-scale problem affecting developed countries. Type II diabetes is a condition that usually comes on later in life due to insulin resistance or deficiency. In the United States alone it affects upwards of 17 million individuals, with the numbers on the rise. Did you know that the function of your nervous system plays a role in regulating insulin and blood sugar?
It’s true! In fact, a recent study from the American Diabetes Association illustrated that the abnormal autonomic nervous system plays a role in the development in the insulin resistance seen in Type 2 diabetes. Chiropractic care might help! It has long been accepted that chiropractic care helps to improve autonomic nervous system function as well as that patients see improvements in insulin resistance and blood sugar control.
Take, for example, the case of a 67-year-old woman in Florida who after just four visits was able to come off her insulin! Although chiropractic care doesn’t seek to treat diabetes, it helps improve health and quality of life!
