Diabetes Treatment in Austin
Insulin resistance is a condition where insulin is produced in the body but not effectively used by the cells to make energy and can lead to the development of pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes, on the other hand, is a metabolic disease characterized by problems with insulin secretion. If you have Type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t produce enough insulin. Type 1 diabetes patients can’t produce insulin at all.
High levels of blood sugar, or glucose, is the main symptom. But it’s not the root cause. Diabetes can have genetic and lifestyle factors. We’ll work with you to discover the cause of your diabetes. This knowledge will inform a plan for lifestyle, diet, and treatment that will help you feel your best.
