Diabesity | Type 2 Diabetes | Austin, TX

Diabesity is a modern epidemic affecting one out of two Americans. Diabesity is actually a spectrum or cluster of abnormal biological conditions raging from mild insulin resistance to full-blown type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, 90% of those affected by diabesity are not even aware that they have it.

There are several signs and symptoms that can indicate you have diabesity. Functional medicine doctor Ruthie Harper, MD offers risk evaluation blood tests to provide valuable information about your risks of diabesity, so she can develop an appropriate treatment plan to help you avoid or reverse type 2 diabetes and other serious health conditions.

Remember that diabesity is not limited to overweight individuals – and that taking a ‘watch and wait’ approach to diabesity and type 2 diabetes can be quite dangerous. However, a proactive approach to treating diabesity can help individuals prevent the development of type 2 diabetes and other serious and life threating medical conditions.
