Preventing Diabetes For American Children

Preventing Diabetes For American Children - Featured Image

The most important evaluation of a country’s well-being is the health of their children. 25% of America’s kids are on medications for chronic conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, “Adult-onset” diabetes, and other issues you’d never expect a child to have like depression and sleeplessness. These conditions are caused all or in part to someone’s lifestyle and the way their body functions.


In order to prevent the onset of diabetes, there are a few lifestyle changes that you should consider for implementation in your child’s daily life: 

  • Maintain a healthy weight through balanced nutrition and physical activity
  • Eat smaller portions/healthy meals and snacks
  • Limit stagnant time, such as watching television, playing video games, or lounging on their phones


Most importantly, by optimizing nerve supply through chiropractic and supporting the body’s own metabolic balance through a fat based diet rather than a carb based diet, you give kids and all of our body’s a fighting chance against the parabolic growth of diabetes.


Beware of the dangerous health conditions that your children can experience. Start by keeping them healthy now so that their future can be happy, safe, and healthy.
