Diabetes when uncontrolled through lifestyle modifications
has two primary facets which are critical to consider from an ageing perspective.
- It gets progressively more and more severe leading to multi organ complications down the line.
- It accelerates ageing and reduces both quantity and quality of life.
Role and limitations of current medications
There are currently different categories of medicines and insulin used routinely to control blood sugar levels. They are highly effective in normalizing sugars, however over a period of time without changes to the lifestyle, patients move higher on both dosage and stronger action of the drugs eventually landing up on multi drug therapy combined with insulin.
The fact is medicines have their utility in temporarily reducing sugar levels, however do not address the root cause most often in type 2 diabetes which is insulin resistance. At best, they improve your blood sugar readings. Over time, patients require higher and higher doses and stronger and stronger medicines, eventually they end up on insulin. All this time, the high blood sugar levels are damaging the internal organs, which is the reason for complications like high blood pressure, kidney damage, cardiac problems, etc. Another factor is cost. It can cost a diabetic upwards of Rs 50,000/- a year just to manage their conditions. And this doesn’t include the possible cost of hospitalization and associated expenses. Finally, even with medicines, you lead a very limited and compromised lifestyle, in terms of your diet and mobility.
Reversal is not a luxury but an absolute necessity. From protecting organs from collateral damage of high sugars to ensuring the body doesn’t age rapidly it is paramount to keep our levels in check through systematic lifestyle modification.
Reversal is also an opportunity to get back the health you have lost, and transform your entire life. Our programs are not quick fixes, rather they induce deep behavioral changes inside out. This transformation is the reason behind its name: the holistic transformation program
