COULD YOU HAVE DIABESITY?

Diabetes 2 is the most common form of diabetes. In fact, 90% of people who have diabetes suffer from type 2.
Being overweight is one of the things that can put you at risk of diabetes 2 and that is how the diagnosis “diabesity” was identified.
However, what if you couldn’t help putting on weight, no matter what you did, what if it was genetic?
Sometimes it’s like the chicken and egg question: are your genes causing the insulin resistance, turning the insulin into fat? Or is it the other way around?
One case I observed was of a woman who did everything “right”: exercise, diet, the lot. Unfortunately, her genes were against her and most of her family were already overweight and suffering from diabetes, which was the fate she was hoping to avoid. Once she reached her mid forties, the weight started to pile on and her blood sugar sky-rocketed.
Needless to say, she was miserable and her doctor wouldn’t believe her when she said she wasn’t even hungry anymore!
What to do? The great thing about homeopathy is that it looks at the individual in a holistic way. It is always important to ask “what else is going on”? Sometimes the thyroid is a factor when it’s under active and sometimes even the thyroid medications can cause weight fluctuations.
Health is about balance, whatever your condition is. Getting the thyroid to work properly would help with the weight. Everything is connected, therefore, once the weight was in balance again, the blood sugar level went down and her mood, self esteem and mojo came back!
I realise it sounds easier than it actually is: it does take a few months of treatment and having the support of your homeopath is critical. What I want to say, though, is that it can be done: a diagnosis of diabetes or diabesity is not a life sentence!
