Many risk factors for type 2 diabetes include lifestyle decisions that can be reduced or even cut out entirely with time and effort. Significant risk factors include excess weight (particularly around the waist) physical inactivity, and poor diet.
When individuals first find out that they have diabetes, it can be scary, sad, and hard to believe since many don’t necessarily feel sick. It is not your fault that you were diagnosed with diabetes, but it is your job to take care of yourself. This may require you to change some things about your daily routine.
FIGHTBACK ATTACKS TYPE 2 DIABETES FROM ALL ANGLES
We attack Type 2 Diabetes from all angles: diet and nutrition, high-intensity aerobic exercise programs, and lifestyle coaching.
Diet and Nutrition: A diet must be custom fitted to each individual’s unique interactions between biology, psychology, and the environment in order to work in the long term. Through our specialized program, each individual is assessed and given a customized program including education on diet that is specific to them in regards to the individual’s thoughts, perceptions, and emotions towards eating.
High-Intensity Interval Training and Aerobic Exercise Programs specific for Type 2 Diabetes: Research has shown that utilizing both of these exercise modalities at 70-85% of heart rate maximum for 50 minutes 3 times a week for 3 months has significant improvement in Type 2 diabetes. The areas of greatest improvement were: improved cardiac function, increased insulin sensitivity, decreased adiposity, normal BMI, decreased inflammatory markers, less oxidative stress, reduced metabolic risk variables, and improved blood flow.
