Boston area functional health care provider Dr. Greg Symko D.C. writes about the possible causes of Type 2 Diabetes

diabetesA-150x150Now we understand how you can have the beginnings of Type 2 Diabetes without realizing any symptoms or having blood work show that you might.  What are the causes?  How does this happen?  First you must understand that it is not necessarily the individual’s fault that they get diabetes.  Here are five possible causes.

Lifestyle factors:  consuming certain foods, not having enough time to eat a proper meal, going hungry between meals, not getting enough sleep and dealing with chronic stressful situations.

Obesity:  Yes, obesity can cause Type 2 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes can cause obesity.

Environmental factors: exposure to toxic substances

Genetics: certain combinations of situations can trigger the genes’ expression and finally, you can get Type 2 Diabetes from faulty brain firing.   My job is to figure which of the above are the problem and then address it.
