Know someone in chronic pain? Know someone who has an addiction? Know someone who is diabetic? Addiction, chronic pain, and diabetes have one thing in common – metabolic syndrome, which is a cluster of conditions including increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat, chronic inflammation, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels. Dr. Gurpreet Padda, MD is an interventional pain specialist, and in his treatment has often found co-occurring addiction and diabetes. His practice is dedicated to working with, reducing, and in many cases curing all three – identifying and fixing pain paths, reworking patient nutrition and increasing movement and exercise. He has clear recommendations on how to fix your diet and exercise regimen, which have met with great success.
