The Link Between Diabetes and Obesity

Being obese creates many health risks, and the link between obesity and diabetes is clear and evident. The good news is that you may be able to prevent the onset of diabetes, but it requires losing weight and taking care of yourself. Just don’t wait any longer to change your lifestyle and get healthy.

At SoCal Regenerative Clinic in West Covina and Anaheim, California, we approach things differently, and don’t just treat your symptoms. While that’s an important part of the care, we want to more fully understand the cause of your condition.

If you have diabetes, we’ll treat it with a fully integrative approach. But the true goal of John Humiston, MD and Andy Keith, DC is to make sure you don’t get there in the first place, and we’ll do all we can to make sure your obesity doesn’t lead to type 2 diabetes.

The risks of obesity

In addition to contributing to the onset of type 2 diabetes, obesity causes other major health risks. And if you are trying to get pregnant, obesity poses major challenges and dangers to a pregnancy. The other serious issues include:

  • Heart disease
  • Liver or kidney disease
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Certain cancers
  • Sleep apnea
  • Osteoarthritis

The benefits of medical weight loss

Over 87% of adults who have diabetes are also overweight or obese, so losing weight is absolutely essential. If you’ve tried to lose weight on your own and are still struggling, a medical weight loss program may be the answer. But again, we want to know the root cause of your weight issues, which can result from any number of conditions and reasons.

At SoCal Regenerative Clinic, we’ll look at everything in that first consultation, from genetics and family history, to all of your vital body measurements and numbers, including: BMI, waist size, cholesterol, etc. This will allow us to create the ideal, individual plan for you, with the goal of losing 3-5 pounds a week. We do also offer a Fast-Track Program that can have you losing 1-2 pounds a day.

We give all of our patients a full support system, and the individual attention they need to stick to the plan and be successful. Because our program is personalized and supervised, and includes appetite control medication, lipotropic injections, and continuous follow-ups, you’ll have the long term results you need and desire. This will also come about with lifestyle changes, exercise, healthy new habits and losing old, bad habits.

A new way to treat diabetes

To be clear, our mutual goal is to prevent diabetes in every way possible. However, if you already suffer from diabetes, SoCal Regenerative Clinic has a unique approach to reduce and possibly even reverse the symptoms. Our diabetes program goes way beyond simple blood sugar management, and offers IV infusions and herbal supplements, in addition to all of the other treatments.

The risks from being overweight and obese are just too high, and the link between this and diabetes is simply too dangerous. Let SoCal Regenerative Clinic be an integral part of your journey to better health. Call us or use the handy Request Appointment button to set up a consultation right away.
