reverse prediabetes* and type 2 diabetes*
The main cause of overweight is an imbalance between the consumed and expended energy of food, as well as the accompanying hormonal and biochemical changes. The standard for diagnosing obesity is considered to be a body mass index of more than 30 or a significant increase in waist circumference.
Alimentary (or nutritional) obesity is an example of a lifestyle disease and carries with it the risks of developing various diseases: cardiovascular, neurological, urological, gynecological, skin disorders and others. Overweight and obesity are a source of chronic inflammation.
Our goal at the EMK clinic is to identify the causes of overweight and help you reduce it so that after a year or two it does not come back. One of the main methods that we use in the treatment of overweight is nutritional correction, including the transfer of the patient to a low-carbohydrate diet (low carb diet, LCD).
Also, we use elements of other diets and nutritional therapy, recommendations for lifestyle changes and sports.
If needed we also use medication SEMAGLUTID (Ozempic, Rybelsus).
The process of losing weight may take longer than you expect - 6 months, and a year, and two, resulting in better health and increased self-confidence! It's worth it!
Prediabetes and type 2 diabetes are dangerous conditions that are directly linked to obesity, chronic inflammation, diseases of cardiovascular system, nervous and other systems.
Prediabetes is a condition that precedes type 2 diabetes. In blood samples, this is reflected in an increase in glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) above 5.6, meaning that it is prediabetes from a level of 5.7.
Prediabetes is no better than "real diabetes" with a glycemic hemoglobin (HbA1c) level above 6.4 as a laboratory diagnostic criterion. Prediabetes is a signal that the body is unable to cope with excessive carbohydrate intake from food.
Don't wait for diabetes to develop.
We use science-based treatments for obesity, prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, including a low-carb diet, intermittent fasting, and other lifestyle changes. In the treatment of diabetes, we use drugs that help increase the sensitivity of cells to insulin and lower sugar levels.
Aging is an irreversible process. Did you know that not only cells age but also the extracellular matrix (the environment in which cells are located), with age, our metabolism and cell renewal slow down to protect us from the potential development of cancer , which is often associated with mutations in rapidly dividing cells.
Aging cannot be prevented or reversed, but you can try to slow it down and prolong your fulfilled, disease-free life!
To understand how your biological age differs from the calendar age, and to identify the most important points in our intervention, we will examine you thoroughly.
Based on the data obtained, we can recommend changes in lifestyle, diet, the use of dietary supplements or other means that help prevent the development of chronic diseases and chronic inflammation and, as a result, slow down aging.
Inflammation is considered to be one of the main mechanisms in the development of many acute and chronic diseases, aging, but also cancer.
Our body is a self-regulating system that can resist inflammation, but sometimes the body's immune system can react excessively, leading to autoimmune diseases such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic colitis, autoimmune thyroiditis and others.
These are often caused by a combination of chronic gut inflammation and acute or chronic stress.
We do not guarantee that we will be able to completely cure your autoimmune disease, but based on the latest research, we will do our best to determine the cause of the disease, reduce inflammation and symptoms, and make recommendations to prevent the disease from getting worse.
Many digestive problems are related to nutrition as well as the condition of the nervous system and musculoskeletal system.
Carbohydrate-rich foods, incl. simple sugars, as well as foods containing lectins and similar substances, can cause indigestion, skin problems, mood disorders and a decrease in immunity.
It should not be forgotten that chronic stress contributes to the deterioration of the blood supply to the digestive system, which can contribute to the development of chronic gastrointestinal inflammation.
Finally, severe skeletal problems and spinal injuries can damage the nerves leaving the spine, interfering with nerve signals to the internal organs, which in turn can have a negative effect on digestion.
"Leaky gut syndrome" and intestinal microbiome disorders can cause not only abdominal pain, but also constipation, diarrhea, depression, weight gain and more.
We give advice on possible solutions!
It is often the case that your symptoms do not fit within a certain range of conditions and your family doctor or specialist will not be able to explain the cause.
It is possible that you were not examined as thoroughly as you actually would have been or that you ended up with the wrong specialist.
For example, with abdominal pain, you were referred to a gastroenterologist who did not find anything, although you should have gone to a neurologist or chiropractor instead, because the problem was actually in the spine and was due to a sedentary lifestyle.
Your dermatologist will treat you for a strange recurring skin allergy, but hormonal creams will only provide temporary relief - and in the end, only a gluten-free diet will help get rid of the rash.
If you have unexplained headaches, nausea, numbness in the hands or feet, dizziness, tiredness, anemia ...
We will try to find the cause of your unexplained symptoms and help you get rid of them!
Our family doctors can deal with most of your health problems and give advice on where to go if they cannot help you. You can see a family doctor for any problem, including an intimate one.
At our clinic, you can have rapid blood and urine tests to detect inflammation, and you can consult a doctor on site, by phone or video.
We will explain the results of your tests in detail and pay attention to what your family doctor usually does not pay attention to.
We open sick leaves, prescribe and extend prescriptional medicines, issue health certificates for driver's license and others, also in English and Russian.
One of the causes of a woman's infertility can often be polycystic ovary syndrome, which is diagnosed by pelvic ultrasound and the necessary additional tests.
Many cases of PCOS are connected to so-called insulin resistance, a condition in which the levels of the hormone insulin in the blood are too high.
We try to deviate from the classic treatments for PCOS and offer you newer, scientifically proven methods based primarily on dietary changes (including the transition to a low carb diet).
The efficacy of a low carb or keto diet in the treatment of PCOS has been demonstrated in numerous studies, but it should be borne in mind that this syndrome can often be caused by another problem that cannot be corrected by lifestyle / diet changes.
By encouraging you to change your lifestyle without using hormones or other medications, we try to give you the opportunity to enjoy the joys of motherhood.
