Genetics and Diabetes

Dr. Burggraf Speaking on Genetics and Diabetic Retinopathy

The swings of glucose in diabetics cause stress within all cells of the body. Instead of a nice level playing field where things are in balance, the cells are constantly confronted with high sugar and then low sugar. For this reason we need to keep the cells strong to withstand these blood sugar fluctuations. Cells cannot be strong if they have genetic issues or are lacking hormonal support. Ultimately they start to die off leading to heart disease, diabetic retinopathy and kidney disease. The great news is that we can strengthen the health of the cells by testing your genetics to determine the nutritional and dietary recommendations specific to your needs.
