      Blood Sugar Balance and Diabetes

      Wellness Class with Dr. Danette Sutton According to the Journal of Diabetes Care, it is estimated that the total number of Americans with diabetes will double by 2034. Forty percent of Americans aged 40-74 (41 million people) currently have the condition. This lecture will look at several risk factors, the blood tests to ask your doctor to take for a more comprehensive evaluation, how dairy (even organic dairy) can contribute to Type 2 Diabetes (T2D), and how heavy metals like mercury injures the pancreatic beta cells. As always, we will begin with what is considered "normal," discuss the risk factors, define hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia and their corresponding signs and symptoms. We will also briefly touch on kidney/eye/nerve/heart damage as a result of the disease and side effects of medications used to treat diabetes. We will end with an overview of what exercise, diet and lifestyle can play in creating, and eliminating, the disease. About the Instructor: Dr. Danette L. Sutton is a second generation chiropractor, born and raised in Santa Cruz. She received a BS degree from Santa Clara University in Combined Sciences and her DC degree from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1984. She was certified as an Applied Clinical Nutritionist in 2015. She has studied extensively in subjects including over one thousand hours in homeopathy, in addition to orthopedics, radiology and nutrition, among many other topics. She has a passion for improving health through chiropractic and nutrition and develops an individualized protocol for each patient. Health comes from the inside-out and this requires more time than simply cutting off a pain signal. Her treatment addresses the underlying condition and not just the symptoms.
