Diabetes, Insulin Resistance & Cushing’s Disease

in Health Conditions

Symptoms of Diabetes:
(high blood sugar and insufficient insulin production)

  • Increased thirst
  • Increased urination
  • Weight gain
  • Weight loss
  • Increased appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Irritability

Symptoms of Cushing’s Disease:
(high cortisol levels)

  • Increased thirst
  • Increased urination
  • Increased appetite
  • Panting
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Skin thinning or darkening
  • Skin infections
  • Depressed Immunity
  • Hair loss
  • Oily hair coat

Causes:

  • High carbohydrate diets
  • Chronic stress
  • Lack of exercise
  • Long-term supplementation of glucosamine products
  • Metabolic and hormonal changes as caused by diet, stress and lack of exercise

Treatment

Diet & Nutrition:

  • No or minimal grains
  • Increase fibre with plant and sea vegetables
  • No excess fats or supplemental oils – oils increase cortisol levels and burden the liver

Recommended Remedies – dosage as per labels:

  • Blood Sugar Formula – regulates blood sugar, encourages weight loss
  • Vitamin B6 – regulates sugar and insulin levels; nutritional support for pituitary, thyroid and adrenals
  • Pro-Colon probiotics – increases nutrient absorption from food, helps metabolize hormones, improves immunity
  • Hormone Boost – supports pituitary, thyroid and adrenal function; helps regulate hormone production; increases vitality
  • Performance Plus – slows sugar absorption, improves endurance and stamina, strengthens adrenals, liver support

Special Notes:

a) Glucosamine is a type of sugar that can block the pancreas from producing insulin

b) Cushing’s disease is the end result of diabetes/insulin resistance which causes pituitary/adrenal stress resulting in enlargement/tumours

c) Don’t spay or neuter before 6 months of age since this forces the adrenals to over-produce reproductive hormones stressing the adrenals, thyroid and pituitary
