Introduction to Metabolic Testing, Functional Nutrition and Neurology for Pre-Diabetic and Diabetic Conditions :

Introduction to Metabolic Testing, Functional Nutrition and Neurology for Pre-Diabetic and Diabetic Conditions Presented by: Dr. Stephen Beyer, D.C.

Dr. Stephen Beyer:

Dr. Stephen Beyer Doctor of Chiropractic since 1994 Currently enrolled in post-graduate Chiropractic Charter member of the International Association of Functional Neurology & Rehabilitation Studied functional blood chemistry, functional endocrinology, and functional neurotransmitters under Dr. Datis Kharrazian Studied under Dr. Michael Johnson author of the book “What Do You Do When the Medications Don’t Work” Studied with Apex Energetics Bio-medical & nutritional products for treatment of chronic conditions. Completed the Masters Course in the Functional Neurology & Functional Medicine of Type II Diabetes under Dr. David J Clark D.C., C.N.

Diagnosis of Diabetes Mellitus:

Diagnosis of Diabetes Mellitus Classic symptoms of diabetes mellitus ( polyuria , polydipsia , polyphagia , and weight loss and random plasma glucose > 200mg/ dL Fasting plasma glucose > 126 mg/ dL Two hour post glucose load (75g) plasma glucose > 200 mg/ dL , and confirmed by repeat test Or HA1C > 6.5

Slide5:

HgbA1C Finally EXPLAINED T he best marker of the severity of your sugar situation… Sugar is sticky both outside and inside the body. Red blood cells float around in your body for 3 months before they die We can then measure how much sugar the RBC’s have picked up in the preceding 3 months. Lab normal is 4 - 5.9 .....Functional medicine is 5.0

Pre-diabetic aka Metabolic Syndrome or Syndrome X:

Pre-diabetic aka Metabolic Syndrome or Syndrome X Fasting blood glucose is > 100-126 Is This You?

Type 2 Diabetes Statistics:

Type 2 Diabetes Statistics 2007 - 23.6 million in U.S 1/3 are undiagnosed.... Leads to #1 new cause of blindness in U.S Leads to #1 new cause of kidney failure in U.S 60-70% of diabetics have some form on P.N. Last but not least, of those 60-70% most have sexual dysfunction. Early signs....bad skin, itchy in legs

How Your Body Should Use Blood Sugar:

How Your Body Should Use Blood Sugar Your cells (all 100 TRILLION) of them need glucose to make energy (ATP) Insulin opens up the cells so that glucose in the blood can get into the cells Cortisol from your adrenal glands elevates blood sugar when it is too low and/or abnormal cortisol levels Your adrenal glands are your stress glands STRESS ADRENAL STIMULATION CORTISOL INCREASED BLOOD SUGAR People with blood sugar ISSUES have cells that are resistant to insulin

Slide9:

The Vicious Sequence of Type II Diabetes : Cells slowly become resistant to insulin Sugar piles up Extra sugar creates swelling that crushes nerves(P.N.) and taxes pancreas over time Cortisol levels increase (stress hormone) Process takes decades

All of this causes…:

All of this causes… Chronically high levels of glucose and insulin and your cells “stop listening” to insulin. INSULIN RESISTANCE FATIGUE INCREASE IN TRIGLYCERIDES, CHOLESTEROL, LDLS= LIPOGENISIS NEVER SATIATED (LEPTIN)

Lifestyle Causes of Insulin Resistance:

Lifestyle Causes of Insulin Resistance Waiting too long between meals (insulin surge) Eating too many carbohydrates at once (insulin surge) Consuming too much sugar (insulin surge) The average American consumes 150-170 lbs of sugar a year! About a ¼ to ½ lb per day! Lack of exercise High stress ( cortisol release)

Slide12:

WHAT IS THE MEDICAL SOLUTION? MORE INSULIN!

Insulin.... why use it?:

Insulin.... why use it? Why bombard cells with insulin when the cells don’t even recognize it anymore?

Metformin- Brand Names: Glucophage, Fortamet, Glumetza, Riomet:

Metformin - Brand Names: Glucophage , Fortamet , Glumetza , Riomet This medication still neglects to get to the root cause of the problem Effectiveness declines with time…pancreas stops listening Side effects include: Lactic Acidosis B12 Deficiencies Diarrhea Nausea/vomiting Flatulence Abdominal pain Headache Shakiness Dizziness Sweating Nervousness Headache Weakness Seizures Dry mouth Shortness of breath Cough Runny nose Muscle pain

High Insulin:

High Insulin Inflammatory Increased BP Risk of CV Disease, Cancer and Stroke Low Testosterone- Male High Testosterone- Female Toxic to the brain Weight Gain The day you get on insulin you are not going to be the same. It ultimately will fail as doses go up and up.

Insulin Resistance & Weight Gain:

Insulin Resistance & Weight Gain

What Else Controls Your Blood Sugar?:

What Else Controls Your Blood Sugar? Pancreas: insulin puts glucose into the cell for energy Adrenal Glands: cortisol elevates blood sugar when needed (physical stress, exercise, sleep) Thyroid Hormone: helps with glucose metabolism Liver: major storage site of glucose (glycogen) Proper Gut Function: 70-80% of your immune system is in your gut All 5 have to function properly! Proper Testing!

Slide18:

All Chronic Health conditions have some common threads Peripheral Neuropathy Thyroid Conditions Insulin Resistance Diabetes Fibromyalgia Vertigo Sciatica Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Hypertension Chronic Neck/Back Pain Stenosis IBS Insomnia Migraine/Chronic Headaches Metabolic Imbalances Anemia Chronic Inflammation Unstable blood sugar Adrenal gland dysfunction Hormonal imbalances Auto-immune attacks Hidden infections (gut or viral) Food sensitivities Medication side effects Hypoxia (low oxygen) Neurological Imbalances Decrease frequency of firing of brain & nervous system (fatigue)

Slide19:

Have you been told your lab tests are all “Normal” ? Lab ranges are inaccurate Bell curves are used Functional lab values are more sensitive to reveal problems (established by the endocrine society)

Slide20:

Abnormal High Values Functional Lab Ranges Abnormal Low Values This is why your lab tests are normal but you still feel sick: In these areas you will find lab findings that a Doctor will say are “ normal ” but they are not!

Slide21:

Were all your tests normal? Test Functional Ranges Traditional High-Low Ranges Test Result & Interpretation Glucose 85-100 mg/dl 65-110 mg/dl 73 - Hypoglycemia TSH 1.8-3.0 ml U/L 0.3-5.7 ml U/L 4.2 - Hypothyroid Cholesterol 150-200 mg/dl <200 mg/dl 148 – Hormone Triglycerides 75-100 mg/dl <150 mg/dl 149 –Insulin resist Hemogloblin (Hgb) F13.5-14.5 M14-15 12-16 gram /dl 13 - anemia

Proper Testing!!!:

Proper Testing!!!

Based on your history we may run any of the following tests and look at functional values::

Based on your history we may run any of the following tests and look at functional values: Complete Blood Chemistry Panel Including thyroid markers, HA1C, lipids, CBC with auto-differential (looking for anemia or infection) Salivary Hormone Testing Salivary test looking at all the adrenal hormones including cortisol Stool Ecology Profile To see if you have poor gut flora, infection or a parasite

The Keys…:

The Keys… Controlling insulin AND cortisol levels Making sure thyroid and liver function are proper Proper gut function Food sensitivities (gluten, dairy, soy…) Gut infections

Another Cause… Latent Autoimmune Diabetes Mellitus:

Another Cause… Latent Autoimmune Diabetes Mellitus 20% may have this Initially thin to normal in weight Have GAD ( glutamic acid decarboxylas e ) antibodies Important to catch early... can lead to Type 2 Diabetes Signs: anxiety, inner tension, stomach in knots

Beta blockers (high blood pressure medications) that increase blood sugar::

Beta blockers (high blood pressure medications) that increase blood sugar: Generic name/Brand Name -Atenolol - Tenormin - Cartrol - Lopressor - Toprol - - Levatol - Inderal  

Slide27:

All cases are a combination of Neurologic treatment and Metabolic treatment Ne

Metabolism=:

Metabolism= Eat Food Energy (glucose)

Question…..:

Question….. 30% of our energy goes to what system? a)Endocrine b) Digestive c)Nervous d) Immune e) Cardiovascular The answer is…

The Nervous System!!! (Brain, Spinal Cord, Nerves) :

The Nervous System!!! (Brain, Spinal Cord, Nerves) We need proper glucose delivery for proper metabolism (energy) and for a well functioning brain and nerves! Poor Blood Sugar Bad Nerves

Neurological Consequences of Type II Diabetes:

Neurological Consequences of Type II Diabetes Decreased sensory input to ALL of brain Can cause dysfunction ANYWHERE in the brain Can cause focal vascular lesions in multiple brain areas All leads to neuro -degeneration!

Type 2 Diabetes is a progressive disorder…:

Type 2 Diabetes is a progressive disorder… That will eventually cause neuro -degeneration. Alzheimers has been called “Diabetes of the Brain”. …and the worst symptoms for many…

Peripheral Neuropathy:

Peripheral Neuropathy What is Peripheral Neuropathy? What causes it? What can be done to restore your peripheral nerves to health?

Peripheral Neuropathy:

Peripheral Neuropathy Very common Chronic disease that affects 20 million Americans. Electric wiring is breaking down Feet/hands can’t communicate to the brain The brain can’t communicate with the feet/hands

What does Peripheral Neuropathy mean?:

“Peripheral” means further out from the center of the body. Distant from Brain and Spinal Cord “Neuro” means nerves “Pathy” means abnormal What does Peripheral Neuropathy mean?

10 Signs of Peripheral Neuropathy:

10 Signs of Peripheral Neuropathy Numbness Burning Feet Cramping Sharp Electric Pain Pain When Walking Difficulty Sleeping From Leg Discomfort Prickling / Tingling Feelings L oss of balance/falling Weakness Swelling

The symptoms depend on which type of nerve is affected. The three main types of nerves are::

Those that carry sensations (sensory) Those that control muscles (motor) Those that carry information to blood vessels(autonomic) The symptoms depend on which type of nerve is affected. The three main types of nerves are:

SENSATION CHANGES :

SENSATION CHANGES Damage to sensory fibers results in changes in sensation, burning sensations, nerve pain, tingling or numbness, or an inability to determine joint position, which causes balance problems. For many neuropathies, sensation changes often begin in the feet and progress toward the center of the body with involvement of other areas as the condition worsens.

Damage to the motor fibers interferes with muscle control and can cause weakness, loss of muscle bulk, and loss of dexterity. Sometimes, cramps are a sign of motor nerve involvement. :

Damage to the motor fibers interferes with muscle control and can cause weakness, loss of muscle bulk, and loss of dexterity. Sometimes, cramps are a sign of motor nerve involvement. MOVEMENT DIFFICULTIES

Adrenal Stressors:

Adrenal Stressors Hidden food sensitivity Hidden gut infection Poor diet Anemia Emotional stress

High Cortisol from Adrenal Stress=:

High Cortisol from Adrenal Stress= Insulin resistance!

Liver Malfunction:

Liver Malfunction Alcohol Bad diet Medications = Glucose elevation

Thyroid problems are often not diagnosed:

Thyroid problems are often not diagnosed Doctors don’t run enough markers Lab ranges are too wide

Slide44:

All Chronic Health conditions have some common threads Type 2 Diabetes Insulin Resistance (Metabolic Syndrome) Thyroid Conditions Fibromyalgia Vertigo Sciatica Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Peripheral Neuropathy Rheumatoid Arthritis Chronic Neck/Back Pain Stenosis IBS Insomnia Crohn’s Disease Celiac Disease PCOS/ Infertility Migraine/Chronic Headaches ADD/ADHD/ Spectrum Disorders Metabolic Imbalances Anemia Thyroid Dysfunction Unstable blood sugar Adrenal gland dysfunction Hormonal imbalances Auto-immune attacks Hidden infections (gut or viral) Food sensitivities Hypoxia (low oxygen) Chronic Inflammation Neurological Imbalances Decrease frequency of firing of brain (brain fatigue)

Sexual Dysfunction:

Sexual Dysfunction Both men and Women Its all about nerve flow

Blood glucose levels can be checked with 5 very important blood chemistry markers:   :

Blood glucose levels can be checked with 5 very important blood chemistry markers:   1. Fasting Blood Glucose: this should be 80-100 for a properly functioning nervous system 2. HA1C: this is the best marker because it gives us what your blood glucose levels have been for the last 120 days; for your nervous system to function properly this number should be below 5.0 3. Triglycerides (75-100) 4. Cholesterol (150-200) 5. LDL (>120)   When your body becomes insulin resistant it will take the extra glucose in your blood and make lipids (triglycerides, cholesterol, LDL). This is why you gain fat when you are insulin resistant and until you control your blood glucose levels you will not be able to shed this fat.  

Here is a list of the things you can do to keep good blood glucose levels:   :

Here is a list of the things you can do to keep good blood glucose levels:   1.  Avoid products that contain refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, agave syrup & artificial sweeteners; fruit juices; white flour 2. Eat more frequently (5-6 small meals a day) 3. Eat protein with each meal– lean meats, poultry (chicken, turkey), fish; eggs, Greek yogurt, tofu, lean cheeses, cottage cheese, kidney beans, lentils, nuts (un-sugared, unsalted), peanut butter 4. Avoid stimulants– caffeine, guarana 5. Exercise at least 20 minutes a day with your heart rate getting up to your maximum level (180 minus your age) 6. Talk to Dr. Beyer about taking any of the following compounds from Apex Energetics®:   ·  Adrenacalm ·  Adaptocrine ·  Glysen · Omega Co3 ·  Fibromin ·  Protoglysen    

Body- Brain Connection:

Body- Brain Connection Your brain is a sensory organ (everything is perceived in the brain) Your body is one big receptor Your brain stays alive from constant input from your body’s receptors (and from fuel in the form of glucose and oxygen) We have receptors everywhere: Muscles (gravity) Joints (position) Skin (touch) Eyes (sight) Ears (sound) Nose (smell) Mouth (taste) Which two receptors light up the brain the most?

Answer: Touch & Gravity!:

Answer: Touch & Gravity!

3 Parts of the Brain:

3 Parts of the Brain The Brain Stem The Cerebellum

How the Brain Works:

How the Brain Works Sensory input from the body goes to the same side cerebellum first It is sent to the opposite side of the upper brain (frontal, parietal, temporal, occipital lobes) The upper brain has a major connection to our brain stem The brain stem inhibits/brakes (keeps under control) our sympathetic (fight or flight) nervous system Without this “braking” of our sympathetic nervous system a lot of chronic conditions occur

Slide52:

An Over-firing Sympathetic Nervous System Can Cause: Chronic Pain & Chronic Fatigue Irritable Bowel Syndrome Urinary tract infections Fibromyalgia Migraine/Tension headaches Poor Posture (Big Foot) Adrenal Gland Stimulation

Slide53:

Over- firing Sympathetic Nervous System Can Cause: Blurred vision Increased sweating Difficulty falling or staying asleep (Insomnia) Dizziness/Vertigo Heart palpitations, increased heart rate, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE Cold hands & feet Sensitivity to light and sound

Cerebellum Fatigue:

Cerebellum Fatigue Loss of balance Vertigo Chronic neck & back pain Headaches Clumsiness/ dropping things Disorganized thinking And a lack of output to the upper brain (frontal, parietal, temporal lobes)

Frontal, Parietal, Temporal Lobe Fatigue:

Frontal, Parietal, Temporal Lobe Fatigue Results in a lack of inhibition of the sympathetic nervous system- fight or flight!

Slide56:

Depression/anxiety Difficulty scanning pages while reading Difficulty adding or subtracting Difficulty verbal expressing Difficulty understanding language Decreased Memory Learning difficulties Lack of focus Upper Brain Fatigue Can Cause:

Slide57:

Altered sensation (numbness, tingling, ...) Changes in handwriting Anger and increased irritability (impulsive) Body weakness Lack of motivation Learning disability (dyslexia, ADD/ADHD) Upper Brain Fatigue Can Cause:

Slide58:

How does this happen? - Chemical Stress - Physical Stress - Emotional Stress Causes brain to fatigue! = Fewer Nerve Impulses

Chemical/Physical Stress to the Brain:

Chemical/Physical Stress to the Brain Anemia too little oxygen Blood Sugar Imbalance glucose Food Sensitivities gluten, casien (dairy), soy Immune System Imbalance autoimmune Poor Diet Inflammation- omega 6: omega 3 fatty acids Hypothyroid function Prescription/ Non-prescription drugs Chronic inflammation Hidden infections (gut) These are Metabolic problems that create nervous system imbalances in the brain!

Emotional Stress to the Brain:

Emotional Stress to the Brain Adrenal Gland Disorders Cortisol Imbalance Anti-insulin effect on tissues Raises blood sugar too high High triglycerides, LDL, cholesterol High insulin and glucose levels cause breakdown of your brain & nerves!

Metabolic Disorders Causing Brain Imbalances…:

Metabolic Disorders Causing Brain Imbalances… Anemia Blood Sugar Imbalances Food Sensitivity Immune System Imbalance Adrenal Gland Disorders Thyroid dysfunction Inflammation Hidden infections How do you know if you have these?

Cyrex Lab Testing:

Cyrex Lab Testing Food sensitivity testing to gluten and multiple other foods Leaky Gut Syndrome Auto-immune testing to include measuring to see if your immune system is mistakenly attacking over 90 different tissues in your body (“self” anti-bodies)

The cerebellum and brain require two things to function properly::

The cerebellum and brain require two things to function properly: FUEL Good Glucose (85-100) Proper Oxygen ACTIVATION Brain Exercise
