Effects of Low-Carb Diets on Diabetes and Insulin Resistance

What you eat makes all the difference when it comes to your health. Some foods can set you up for a lifetime of chronic illness while others can keep you at the peak of health and wellness. With conditions like type 2 diabetes and obesity reaching epidemic proportions, switching away from the proliferation of convenient, carb-heavy choices like sugary drinks and refined flour requires a definite shift from what has become the norm in the American diet. But it is a shift that offers immense rewards. Many studies are showing the link between eating a low-carb diet and improving the body’s ability to properly manage blood sugar. Beyond increasing the risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes, high blood sugar levels can increase the chances of developing heart disease, strokes, and elevated blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

  • “Dr. Schultz is extremely thorough with diagnosis and treatment while her testing is extensive.   She has a wealth of knowledge about hormone replacement and areas relating to this.  Her bedside manner is refreshing and she never rushes you out of her office.   If you have ever considered looking into hormone replacement you would be well advised to start with Dr. Schultz first”

    – Susan R.

  • “Within one week of starting HRT it felt like a thick, heavy fog was lifted from my life. I was able to get a full, restful night of sleep. With the addition of testosterone pellets my energy level, zest for life and libido went from good to fantastic!!! I feel balanced , grounded and very happy most days!”

    -Toula K.

  • “Since I became a patient of Dr. Schultz and FINALLY found someone who could balance my hormones, I HAVE FELT BETTER THAN I DID WHEN I WAS 20!!! I swear this is true!! Because of her diagnostic genius, the level of bioidentical hormones she has fine-tuned to my individual needs have changed my life and restored me to be the best “me” I can be! Dr. Schultz is not just a doctor, I call her my HEALER 🙂 She LISTENS to me, she educates me and encourages me to take good care of myself and to make good choices, and then she allows me to make my own decisions and choices, because she respects that I am an intelligent adult and the expert on my own 58-year-old body. She treats me as a peer and her PARTNER in maintaining my own wellness, and she respects and cares about me! Our appointments start and end with a hug, and I leave her office feeling uplifted, understood, inspired, strengthened and healed in body mind and spirit. She is very holistic,  understanding that we are not just a cluster of symptoms, but that in order to have healthy bodies we must also address our issues, belief systems, and thoughts. Dr. Schultz is a wise and wonderful teacher and I am blessed to have her on my path:) And her staff is awesome too!”
