Doctor Polucki Family Health Hour -November 18, 2013
Good Morning and welcome to the Doctor Polucki Family Health Hour with your host Dr. Thomas Polucki, right here on your Hometown Station AM 1220 KHTS.
Few people know some of the side effects of Diabetes. First off you will constantly be thirsty and drinking water. Also Diabetics tend to be more hungry after eating carbohydrates. I often hear people say “I just need twenty pounds”. Twenty pounds is often the tipping point to messing with your metabolic functions. Some of the top side affects of Diabetes are Stroke, blindness, decrease in sexual function, and kidney failure.
Andy Pattantyus became a type 2 diabetic in his 50’s. It wasn’t until a long plane trip to Israel that made him conclude something was wrong. Then the doctor diagnosed me and started to prescribe a pill for every symptom. One of those pills was Metformin. This drug is one of the worst prescriptions available. The warning labels are no longer being taken seriously any more. Ninety percent of patients are given this drug even after reaching all of the risk factors.
I started to take on my problem by myself. I first started to lower my blood sugar through my diet, that took me five days. After an hour of eating, I would go for a thirty minute walk and lowered my glucose.
