Diabetes and Metabolic Disorders

Diabetes and pre-diabetic metabolic disorders are on the rise—approximately 20 million people in the U.S. have diabetes and 54 million people have pre-diabetes. In addition, there are one million new cases of type 2 diabetes each year. With diabetes reaching epidemic levels, health care practitioners and researchers have placed an emphasis on how to prevent diabetes before it starts.

Natural medicine excels at managing diseases like type 2 diabetes. Researchers at the Helfgott Research Institute are currently studying ways to prevent and treat diabetes and obesity using natural medicine therapies.
