The Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine's Experts Available to Offer Solutions to the Diabetes Epidemic

NEW YORK, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's warning from the Centers for Disease Control about the snowballing diabetes epidemic is old news at The Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine, where clinicians have been reversing and preventing Type 2 diabetes with drug-free protocols for many years.

Type II diabetes can often be controlled with diet and exercise alone. A high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet, paired with nutritional supplementation, is almost invariably helpful in normalizing blood sugar, promoting weight loss and reducing other cardiovascular risk factors associated with this condition.

Meals containing less than 10 grams of carbohydrates elevate blood sugar levels considerably less than the standard ADA dietary recommendations, often 100 to 200 points less. Such a diet produces dramatic improvements in glucose and glycohemoglobin levels. The goal of therapy for any Type II diabetic must be to lower both the glucose and the insulin levels; only a low-carbohydrate diet accomplishes both these goals.

In addition to diet and exercise, there are several vita-nutrients that stabilize blood sugar: chromium, vanadium, alpha lipoic acid, and vitamin E, among others.

Atkins Center experts stand ready to explain to your audiences the real reasons why this epidemic is out of control and offer up simple, safe and effective solutions.
