It is a fact that nutrition plays an essential role in the treatment of diabetes. It can be used as a way to improve the symptoms, slow down the progression of the disease, and prevent complications.
With functional diagnostic nutrition - also known as FDN - patients can be helped to manage their blood sugar levels by eating foods that are lower on the glycemic index. This will help them to feel less hungry and more energetic throughout their day.
Functional diagnostic nutrition is a way to treat diabetes by using a functional medicine approach. It is not a one size fits all type of treatment as it depends on the individual's lifestyle, age, weight, gender, and other factors.
This approach to treating diabetes has been found to be incredibly successful in the few studies that have been conducted. In one study, participants who were given this treatment had their HbA1c levels reduce by 26% after only 12 weeks and an average weight loss of 13 pounds (6 kg).
The Functional Diagnostic Nutrition for Health Success process recognizes and addresses the root causes of health problems. It does not just provide temporary relief but helps to find sustainable solutions for a better life. It uses an integrative approach of clinical nutrition, functional testing, and mind-body interventions. The process is designed to enable one to explore both physical, emotional, spiritual and social aspects of wellness and illness.
FDN is not only for diabetics though. It can also be used by those who want to improve their general health by transitioning to a healthier lifestyle without making too many drastic changes at once.
