As a clinic dedicated to providing the most innovative and effective diabetes treatments available today, the team at Atlanta Medical Clinic commits to the fight against diabetes each and every day. Now, with this month officially designated American Diabetes Month, we felt it the perfect time to invite you to join us in the fight and stand up against this condition which has rapidly reached epidemic levels in the United States and around the world.
The Numbers are stunning. In the U.S., more than 34 million people or 10.5 percent of the population suffers from diabetes. Worldwide more than 537 million, or roughly 10 percent of all people aged 20-79, are now living with diabetes. With the health risks diabetes brings of heart disease, chronic kidney disease, nerve damage and problems with feet, oral health, vision, hearing and mental health, it is not a condition that we can ignore.
So how can you help? There are more ways that you might think.
First, you can start by helping to raise awareness. Step one, go to the website of the American Diabetes Association at www.Diabetes.Org, and learn about the signs and the dangers of diabetes. If you can, make a contribution to help with research and education. As with so many growing health risks to our society, research, education and awareness are the most impactful keys to fighting back and making change.
Second, learn more about your family medical history and if there is a high rate of diabetes in your extended family. If so, start to consider simple changes in diet, exercise and behavior that can help prevent you from ever having to deal with all the struggles diabetes can bring. Losing a few pounds, eating healthier and starting on a very simple exercise regimen can dramatically reduce your risks. Take it seriously. Learn to set realistic goals for yourself. Read up on the emotions that can trigger your desire for food.
If you suspect you may have diabetes, reach out to your physician or the medical experts at Atlanta Medical Clinic to schedule a full diabetes screening. One of the biggest problems is the millions of Americans living with the early signs of diabetes who have not yet been diagnosed. Be proactive. It can save your life.

Finally, if you have been diagnosed with diabetes, reach out to Atlanta Medical Clinic and learn more about the breakthrough therapies we provide. Our Physiologic Cellular Restoration therapy helps to stabilize and, in some cases, even reverse the complications often caused by diabetes and other metabolic disorders. Administering insulin as a hormone rather than a drug, this method has helped Type 1, Type 2 and pre-diabetic patients to improve insulin resistance, and help convert sugar into energy more readily. With this approach, 95% of our patients have reported significant improvement in their neuropathy and other complications along with an overall reduction in medication needed.
