Type 2 Diabetes: Cardiovascular and Related Complications and Evidence-Based Complementary Treatments (CHES)

This course is only for CHES practitioners. 

Diabetes medications can lower glucose, but they do not reduce inflammation! Annually, 29 million Americans are diagnosed with T2D; only 36% achieve good medical outcomes. Learn complementary interventions to help control complications: CV, kidney, vision, and peripheral nerve problems. “Chronic high levels of blood sugar are actually due to excessive generation of unopposed free radicals and reactive oxygen species, which eventually jeopardize the formation of the protective molecule nitric oxide,” thus reducing oxygen supply to the body.
