Course Overview

Uncontrolled diabetes creates microvascular complications in the kidneys, eyes and nerves and many diabetic patients develop one or more of these serious conditions. Cellular oxidative damage due to elevated glucose levels is the key etiological factor. It is very helpful for physicians treating diabetic patients to be fully cognizant of how to recognize, diagnose and treat these complications. This lecture will examine the general etiology of damage and then discuss each type of complication as well as the conventional and evidence based naturopathic protocols beneficial for prevention and treatment.

Attend this presentation to confidently:

  • Understand the pathways which induce diabetic cellular complications in the eyes, kidneys and
    nervous system.
  • Diagnose, prevent, and treat diabetic nephropathy using evidence based naturopathic medicine
  • Diagnose, prevent, and treat diabetic retinopathy using evidence based naturopathic medicine
  • Diagnose, prevent, and treat diabetic peripheral nephropathy using evidence based naturopathic medicine
  • Understand appropriate red flags for when to refer to a specialist.
