Functional Medicine* and Integrative Wellness requires Doctors to engage in further education outside of their core training and within their scope of practice.

Functional medicine requires doctors to continue their education and re-evaluate how they treat patients, including clinical decision thinking. Functional medicine stems from the basis and clinical application of understanding “whole body” wellness and the interconnection between organ systems and their processes.

Diabetes is an extremely complex autoimmune and metabolic disorder. The main descriptor of diabetes is that it impairs the glucose regulation and tolerance in the human body. Improper glucose regulation can lead to hyperglycemia. Hyperglycemia for prolonged lengths of time leads to organ end failure. The main organs and systems that are directly affected by hyperglycemia include but are not limited to: kidneys, nerves, heart, blood vessels, and retina.

Diabetes falls under the umbrella of an autoimmune disorder. Autoimmunity is a broad term used to describe multiple human illnesses. Autoimmunity occurs when the body has an increased amount of inflammation for a substantial amount of time. Inflammation is necessary as it is a natural defense mechanism. However, when this inflammation becomes overpowering, a misdirected signal from the immune system can occur and the body begins to attack itself, leading to autoimmune conditions.
Common symptoms and warning signs of inflammation and autoimmune conditions include:

ℹ️ Fatigue
ℹ️ Achy Muscles
ℹ️ Swelling
ℹ️ Brain Fog
ℹ️ Hair Loss
ℹ️ And More!

Generally speaking, there are two main types of diabetes that cases get classified as. Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) and Type 2 Diabetes (T2D). Majority of the cases are T2D and are directly related to a decrease or lack in insulin sensitivity.

To learn more about diabetes, inflammation and the role they both play with each other as well as autoimmunity join us for a live webinar. Diabetes and autoimmunity are both extremely complicated but can be explained in a way that brings individuals clarity and understanding.

This webinar is led by Dr. Alexander Jimenez, who has advanced training in functional medicine, neurophysiology, and clinical applications.
