Here at Greater Chicago Functional Health we will leave no stone unturned to determine the underlying cause or causes of your type II diabetes. We will work together with your medical doctor to reduce your medications, and teach you how to have a healthier life. We have been doing this for 29 years. Richard Powell DC
Patients typically see increased levels of medications, and eventually go to injectable insulin. Vision problems, cardio-vascular complications, kidney damage, and amputations are the progression of the disease. This is why with type II diabetes the life expectancy is 7-10 years less than normal.

Our success with diabetes type II is due to the evaluations, testing and implementing the needed changes that are unique to each individual. Follow up testing verifies the results.

To qualify you need to put your health a priority, be willing to make some changes in your lifestyle, and willing to learn a new way without the dependence on drugs.
