Insolutions Physiological Insulin Resensitization Therapy (PIRT)
A treatment program that aims to improve insulin sensitivity in individuals with diabetes. Insulin resistance is a hallmark of type 2 diabetes, which means that the body’s cells become less responsive to insulin, making it harder for the hormone to regulate blood sugar levels. PIRT is designed to enhance the body’s natural sensitivity to insulin by improving cellular metabolism and reducing inflammation.
The PIRT program typically includes a combination of dietary and lifestyle changes, along with supplements and medications, to support insulin sensitivity. This may include a low-carbohydrate diet, exercise, stress management techniques, and supplements such as magnesium, vitamin D, and omega-3 fatty acids. Additionally, PIRT may involve the use of certain medications, such as metformin or GLP-1 receptor agonists, which can help improve insulin sensitivity and regulate blood sugar levels.
What is the Goal of PIRT?
The goal of PIRT is to reduce the need for insulin and other diabetes medications over time by improving the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar naturally. By addressing the underlying causes of insulin resistance, PIRT may also help reduce the risk of complications associated with diabetes, such as cardiovascular disease, neuropathy, and kidney damage. However, it is important to note that PIRT is not a cure for diabetes and should be used in conjunction with ongoing medical care and monitoring.
