Red Light Help Diabetes

Chances are that you or someone you know has diabetes. 37 million adults in America have diabetes and 96 million have prediabetes. This is a real issue! Diabetes can lead to many serious health problems including amputation, blindness and death. Red Light help Diabetes and those with Prediabetes. Also known as Photobiomodulation (PBMT), Red Light has been proven with numerous studies to have real results.

How Can Red Light Help Diabetes?

  • For Blood Sugar: PBMT improves glucose metabolism and intracellular insulin. This means that it helps the body regulate sugar.
  • For Blood Flow: Red Light causes a release of nitric oxide from cells that triggers vasodilation of blood vessels. This means that blood vessels get wider and that increases blood flow delivering oxygen and nutrients to the body. In the brain this increase was measured to by a 40% increase!
  • For the Eyes: Red Light inhibits early lesions that contribute to diabetic Retinopathy and helps heal the degeneration and leakage of retinal capillaries caused by diabetes.
  • For Nerve Damage: PBMT accelerates the process of nerve regeneration and decreases the pain and inflammation of neuritis caused by diabetes
  • For Healing: PBMT improves wound healing properties

Photobiomodulation is a painless, side-effect free, inexpensive, easy therapy that helps heal and reverse the damage caused by diabetes. Regardless whether a person has prediabetes, full blown diabetes, or had diabetes – Red light therapy will help the body heal from the damage that diabetes causes. I highly recommend this therapy!

I hope you found this to be helpful. If you have any additional questions or would like to try PBMT please reach out! We would love to help you!

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
