SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- November is National Diabetes Awareness Month at Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness. Throughout November, the office will be continuing their wellness program aimed at the prevention of diabetes through their specialized programs that promote a healthy lifestyle in the avoidance or management of diabetes. Throughout the United States, diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death and is the underlying cause of tens of thousands more deaths each year. With 1.7 million new diagnoses each year, Dr. Phillips and his staff are concerned with providing programs aimed at reducing the incidence of this disease.
According to Dr. Donald Phillips of Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness, those diagnosed with prediabetes should take immediate steps to improve their nutrition and head off the onset of diabetes. “Prediabetes is a condition where the individual is presenting elevated blood glucose numbers that are above normal but yet not high enough to be considered type 2 diabetes or insulin dependent diabetes. While it can be a depressing diagnosis, there is a bright spot. Progression from prediabetes to full-blown diabetes is not inevitable. With some smart changes to diet and lifestyle, most patients can lower their blood glucose numbers and get themselves out of the danger zone.”
As a San Antonio area nutritionist, Dr. Phillips helps patients develop a nutritional plan that can be optimized to their current health status. An excellent nutrition program combined with a personalized exercise program and routine chiropractic care can help patients begin to regain the flexibility and mobility that may have prevented them from being active and placed them at risk for developing diabetes. If a patient has been formally diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, this condition may be able to be managed with strict attention to diet and exercise alone. Dr. Phillips helps patients determine what foods should be incorporated into their diets and which foods are best avoided.
According to Dr. Phillips, “Proper nutrition and regular activity are two sides of the same coin. When you pair them both together, your body can begin to heal itself and return to a state of total health and wellness. Not only will you stave off diseases like diabetes, but you will see significant improvements in your overall health and wellbeing.”
