Hormones and Diabetes

Tuesday, 07 Sep 2010 10:07 AM


Question: Is there a connection between hormones and diabetes?

Dr. Brownstein's Answer:

In my clinical experience, I have found that nearly all diabetics have an imbalance in adrenal and thyroid hormones. I have treated many diabetic patients with bioidentical, natural hormones and have seen positive benefits on their ability to lose weight and optimize blood sugar when the hormonal system is properly balanced.

On the other hand, I have found it nearly impossible to help a diabetic patients come off medication if the hormonal system is in disarray. Every diabetic patient needs a full hormonal evaluation by a doctor skilled in the use of natural, bioidentical hormones.
