Type 2 Diabetes, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other neurodegenerative diseases are being linked to inflammation.
Inflammation disrupts many processes in the body:
It can effect the normal process of sugar consumption, digestion, neurotransmitter production, energy production, normal coordination between neurons as well as others.
With inflammation you can have symptoms like peripheral neuropathy which typically is associated with diabetes, post-concussion symptoms which is typically associated with increased microglial cell activation (the inflammatory cycle is not turned off) and poor vestibular and oculomotor function, as well as depression and energy related issues.
We run blood labs on almost all of our new patients when indicated, and we assess them functionally to make sure they aren’t outside of the OPTIMAL levels. If they are, people tend to be symptomatic and we then support your system to promote improved biochemical stability.
If you would like for us to take a look at your lab work or blood labs that have been run within the past 3 months, and you have a chronic problem, please download and complete the
MAF (Metabolic Assessment Form) from our forms page and call our office to make an appointment for a metabolic evaluation. (480) 756-2600
