Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus is the most common type of diabetes, accounting for more than 98% of all cases. Diabetes is intolerance to glucose: a person with diabetes is unable to utilise the glucose present in the blood and so its level remains high, in turn causing several problems. This failure to utilise glucose results from inadequate secretion of the hormone insulin, in turn resulting from failure of beta cells of the pancreas to secrete enough quantities of the hormone in response to a carb rich meal. It can also be due to inefficient action of insulin due to less responsive receptors. Ever increasing evidence suggests that beta cell failure and receptor resistance result from recurrent and prolonged increase in insulin secretion caused by high carbohydrate meals. High carb-high insulin production-insulin resistance-higher insulin production-exhaustion-failure.
At present, the drugs used for treating type 2 diabetes act by reducing receptor resistance and by increasing secretion of insulin from the beta cells. While the former is logical, the latter approach further exhausts the beta cells and worsens the disease. If this fails, then the patients are started on insulin injection itself.
But at Spandana Metabolics, we offer an easy way out. The unique diet that we recommend not only brings back the blood glucose levels to normal, but also re-establishes insulin sensitivity and thus results in reversal of type 2 diabetes. No disease – no drugs – no disease-related complications-no drug related adverse effects.

Obesity/overweight is probably the most common disease in the so called Westernised world today, affecting as many as 30-60% of people, adults and children alike. Obesity is not just excess weight – it is a big and unnecessary load on the heart, lungs, joints, muscles, spine and every other system of our body, leading to a vicious spiral of problems.
Several theories have been put forward to explain the obesity epidemic – from our genes to our food, lifestyle, pollution and global warming. Among all these, our food remains THE most important, easily modifiable cause for this disease.
We at Spandana offer complete evaluation for obesity and its related problems and provide dietary and lifestyle modification strategies to overcome them.
Dyslipidemias, such as increase in the blood levels of cholesterol and/or triglycerides, are not only increasing in incidence, but also affecting the young more often. With frequently changing guidelines, more and more people, and in some cases even children, are being prescribed lipid lowering drugs, despite there being several reports of significant side effects. The dietary modifications that are being routinely suggested for the management of these lipid abnormalities seem to be doing more harm than good.
We at Spandana offer a rational, effective dietary modification that is based on the state of science, helping you to bring your lpids under control without any drugs.
Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome is now an increasingly common cause for infertility. Associated with obesity, hirustism etc., and with increased risks of development of diabetes and other metabolic syndrome related disorders, PCOS needs comprehensive evaluation and management. However, most women with PCOS are only treated with hormones to normalise the menstrual cycles.
We at Spandana offer a complete diet and life style programme that helps in reversing the metabolic abnormalities that are at the core of abnormal ovulation, obviating any need for drugs.
Acne or pimples are very common among adolescents and even in some adults. Emerging evidence points to dietary factors as the most important causes for the development of acne. Acne may also herald the metabolic abnormalities which in turn can cause long term problems.
We at Spandana provide a unique method of evaluation and management of acne that not only stops and prevents acne, but also helps in maintaining the overall health.
