World Diabetes Day – 14th November

November 14 was the World Diabetes Day.

The perfect opportunity for me to remind you of the importance of treating your hormonal deficiencies (and excesses). Indeed, T3-T4, cortisol, growth hormone, androgens, and estrogens can have an impact on our insulin resistance that can lead to type II diabetes.

Did you know that …

… type 2 diabetes – the one that appears more easily in obese people – often develops in people who are poor in growth hormone because of the abdominal obesity they have?

… several studies on animals and humans have shown that DHEA protects against the development of atherosclerosis (aging of the arteries), heart disease, diabetes, obesity, immune deficiency, cancer, depression and the decrease of our quality of life?

… excessive levels of homocysteine (an amino acid) are associated with an increased risk of atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes?

… many scientific studies have shown that men who have testosterone levels within the reference range (25 to 50 percent lower) are more likely to have diseases such as diabetes?
