Diabetes is a metabolic disease that affects how your body converts sugar from your diet into the energy your body needs to function. There are several types of diabetes, including:
Type 1 diabetes occurs when your endocrine system can’t produce insulin due to inflammation and damage in pancreatic cells.
Type 2 diabetes develops when your body can’t make enough insulin to control your blood sugar levels or doesn’t use the insulin it produces correctly.
You can also have prediabetes, a condition that describes elevated blood sugar levels that aren’t high enough to be considered diabetes.
Without proper management, diabetes can increase your risk for a range of chronic health complications, including nerve damage, vision loss, and premature death.
The DNA Diet Club provides comprehensive diabetes management services that use information from your own DNA and gut biome to create a healthy diet plan. Your customized diet helps you better control your blood sugar levels to prevent complications.
Your gut biome contains trillions of bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses that support the healthy function of your gut and other body functions. Your DNA determines the levels of each microorganism in your gut.
When you have too many or too few of certain microorganisms, your gut biome becomes imbalanced. This can lead to diabetes and other chronic diseases, as well as chronic pain.
Through genetic testing of your DNA and gut biome testing, The Diet Plan Club providers can identify where the imbalance lies in your gut. They customize a diet program to your specific needs to rebalance your gut health and keep your diabetes under control.
The Diet Plan Club takes a futuristic medicine approach to diabetes management. The program package includes:
You also get personalized grocery lists, so you can easily shop for the foods you need to rebalance your gut biome. The providers also give you specific recipes that you can access through a smartphone app.
You work with your personal health coach for the duration of your program to ensure your diabetes is managed properly. Your coach can also help you make lasting changes to your diet and lifestyle to prevent diabetes complications.
