Abstract

With a strong focus on lifestyle medicine and desire for evidence-informed, individualized treatment protocols naturopathic doctors have much to offer the type 2 diabetes patient. The newest addition to the naturopathic doctor’s tool kit is continuous and flash glucose monitoring devices. Data obtained from this technology supports healthy glucose control in type 2 diabetes patients. When clinicians are able to be connected to this data nutrition, exercise, supplement, herbal and medication prescriptions can be individualized to the patients insulin sensitivity and glucose disposal. The article reviews one naturopathic doctor’s approach to type 2 diabetes management using continuous glucose monitoring.
