Your Simple Guide to Insulin Potentiation Therapy, ,

When you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, finding a progressive, effective treatment plan that works for your unique condition is your top priority. According to the team at Linchitz Medical Wellness, serving patients on Long Island and in New York City, one option you should consider is insulin potentiation therapy. Here, they explain how this form of treatment has been used to successfully treat a variety of cancers. 

Understanding Insulin Potentiation Therapy

What Is It?

Insulin potentiation therapy, or IPT, is celebrated for being both safe and innovative in the field of cancer treatment. IPT attacks insulin receptors in cancer cells. Since cancer cells require more insulin than normal ones, this unique treatment option takes advantage of this need and uses insulin as a combative drug to destroy the cancer cells. When used in tandem with chemotherapy, this double attack can help you move towards remission. 

What Are the Side Effects?

Insulin Potentiation TherapyUnlike chemotherapy, IPT has minimal side effects. While chemotherapy can make patients nauseous and cause liver damage or radical hair loss, IPT’s main side effect is low blood sugar. Although this can lead to dry mouth, excessive hunger, sweating, or fatigue, these issues can be managed more easily than the side effects that result from chemo.

What Cancers Respond to IPT?

Insulin potentiation therapy is an excellent option for a wide range of cancers, including breast and pancreatic cancers. Better still, this treatment can also be effective in fighting late-stage cancer.
