“The team at DNA Health helped me reverse my type 2 diabetes within 3 months, something I had been fighting with for years! Their approach using functional medicine and a high-tech continuous glucose monitoring put me back in control of my glucose”

– Khalid A.

Are you suffering with high blood sugars, high cholesterol and fatty liver but do not want to take medications?

Type 2 diabetes is a global epidemic, with half a billion people suffering from the disease and the number RISING every year. More importantly, according to the 2019 International Diabetes Federation (IDF) statistics, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has one of the world’s highest prevalence rates of diabetes at 16.3%. In addition, approximately 40.7% of adults (aged 20–79 years) with type-2 diabetes are unaware that they have the condition.

Traditional approach to type 2 diabetes focuses on the symptoms and on management using medication, rather than addressing the root cause

The common misguided method of treating type 2 diabetes is to give patients medications which boost insulin production, or indeed, actually giving patients more insulin.

This brings the glucose levels down temporarily by forcing it in to the fat cells – that large storage unit – make you put on weight; hence the term ‘Diabesity’, the co-existence of both diabetes and obesity.

A vicious cycle is created, where higher and higher levels of insulin are administered and the patients weight goes up and up, and the root problem of high insulin levels isn’t just not being addressed, it is being made worse.

It makes sense, therefore, that a diet and lifestyle that reduces our intake or production of glucose and insulin, would help reverse type-2 diabetes.
