In the United States, the incidence of type 2 diabetes is rising at an alarming rate. Yet, one-third of people with diabetes don’t know they have it. At the same time, more and more scientific studies are proving that eating the right foods, exercising and other lifestyle modifications can be extremely effective for preventing or controlling diabetes. At Bastyr Center for Natural Health, our team of naturopathic medicine and nutrition providers can help you coordinate your medical care from a holistic perspective, addressing all aspects of your well-being. Ask about our Diabetes & Cardiovascular Program when you call.

Read some simple lifestyle and nutritional suggestions that can help you become more mindful of your sugar consumption — which most of us could benefit from, whether diabetic or not!
