It's not in the genes. It's a lifestyle disorder.
Extensive research has established that more than anything else, Type 2 Diabetes, is a life-style disorder and in majority of the cases, can be reversed by controlled diet, shunning malnutrition and regular exercise. From Allopathy to Aurveda, Homoeopathy and Naturapathy, almost every medecine system has a procedure for reversal of majority cases of Diabetes; and while these methods might be different, regular monitoring of patient progress remains the key. There are essentially 3 things that, if monitored effectively, can help get the patient back on track:
1. Leg Muscle Mass - Shows maximum Insulin resistance in case of diabetes patients. Depletion of Leg Muscle Mass is often a marker for diabetes. Improvement in Leg Muscle Mass is often a precursor to reversal.
2. Visceral Fat - Also known as 'belly fat' this has to be constantly monitored to ascertain fat accumulated in the viscera. This is essential to ensure that the treatment is leading to fat loss from the belly.
3. Extra Cellular Water (ECW) ratio - ECW ratio is higher in diabetic patients, putting them at higher risk of diseases such as Kidney failure amongst others. Regular monitoring of ECW ratio helps doctors remain aware - and patients conscientious - about the reversal process.
Dr. K. Thanizharasan, Director, Ozone Integrity, Bengaluru, pairs modern technology - in the form of InBody 270 - with Naturopathy, often producing remarkable results for his patients. "The body heals by itself. That's only when you give it the opportunity. We only identify the issue and we give in issue along with nature." says Dr.K. Thamizharasan.
