There is a burgeoning epidemic of diabetes and pre-diabetes in our country. At IMGI, we screen all of our patients for these conditions, recognizing that early detection and treatment is essential. In the earliest stages, these conditions and many of their dangerous consequences are reversible. We utilize the most sophisticated approaches, including evaluation of nutrition, fitness, emotional eating, mood disorders, and genetic tendencies and deal with these metabolic disorders in a comprehensive manner. Our goal is total reversal of the condition when feasible and containment of the damage when it is not.
Drs. Gersh and Kowata are extensively trained in diabetes, and have broad experience in pharmacologic use, as well as an expansive knowledge of integrative approaches, utilizing supplements such as magnesium, alpha lipoic acid, berberine, cinnamon, chromium, and many others. Nutrition, stress, and emotional states are always addressed and appropriate complementary therapies are discussed. Weight loss options are reviewed as well.
