More than 34 Million Americans are living with diabetes. What’s also staggering is that 1 in 5 Americans1 who are living with diabetes – don’t even know they have it. In Georgia alone, there are well over a million people who have diabetes. Fear of the unknown holds us back from making good healthcare decisions. We encourage you – don’t wait – there is much that can be done to help your diabetes if you recognize it and begin treatment. Making changes can save your life.
Diabetes is a serious metabolic disease that can affect many aspects of a person’s life. Type 2 Diabetes is the most common type of Diabetes and means that your body can’t process insulin properly.
According to the American Diabetes Association, over 230,000 Georgians also have undiagnosed diabetes and don’t recognize it. Diabetes can be managed – and improvements in someone’s health are very possible.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC)2 Symptoms of diabetes include:
- Urinate (pee) a lot, often at night
- Are very thirsty
- Lose weight without trying
- Are very hungry
- Have blurry vision
- Have numb or tingling hands or feet
- Feel very tired
- Have very dry skin
- Have sores that heal slowly
- Have more infections than usual
When you suffer from diabetes, and even pre-diabetes, it can have a negative impact on many aspects of your overall health. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States and is the number one cause of kidney failure, lower-limb amputations, and adult blindness. It also has a great impact on the body’s ability to heal (skin and wounds) and recover from illness.
What you should do.
Know your risk factors for Type 2 Diabetes:
- Age of 45 years or older
- Have a parent, brother, or sister with type 2 diabetes
- Do not get enough physical activity (at least 3x per week)
- Had gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy) or given birth to a baby who weighed more than 9 pounds
- You are African American, Hispanic/Latino American, American Indian, or Alaska Native (some Pacific Islanders and Asian Americans are also at higher risk)
The CDC shares a great video to explain what they are, and how risk factors can impact your health.
Don’t wait – find out if you have Diabetes.
There are three easy ways a doctor can determine if you have diabetes or prediabetes. All three tests as well as symptom monitoring can tell you how acute your condition may be, and inform you about the right steps to take to make improvements to your (insulin) blood sugar levels and get you feeling better.
These tests are:
- Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG)
- Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT)

Diabetes does not have a “cure” it is highly treatable with the right interventions. There is no cure, but there is symptom treatment.
“We see patients who have spent years battling neuropathy, low energy, sleep problems, weight management issues and so many other symptoms associated with diabetes,” said Frank Curvin, MD, Medical Director at Restore First Health. “Most have never heard that there is a treatment option we provide that can actually reverse these side effects of diabetes called PIR (Physiologic Insulin Resensitization).
PIR is a new, medicare covered treatment that uses insulin as a hormone instead of an injected drug. The drug is presented to the body through an infusion process which results in reducing insulin resistance and increases cellular energy. The body then uses this energy to promote healing, repair and regeneration to our organs and tissues.
The results of this PIR infusion can REVERSE your symptoms of Diabetes and lead to overall improvements of your health.
“The results are real and patients are truly feeling the difference just after a few treatment sessions,” said Dr. Curvin.*
