Dr. Go states that the ideal way to treat patients with diabetes is to think critically about Western Medicine and Eastern Medicine and utilize the best both approaches. In the West, drugs that control diabetes at every step of glucose production and metabolism are utilized. Eastern medicine – with its more holistic approach to health and disease – incorporates herbal therapy and appropriate nutrition is central to diabetic management.
