Go beyond one-size-fits-all diabetes and dysglycemia
Instead, use personalized treatment strategies other practitioners don’t even know exist
Diabetes, prediabetes, and dysglycemia affect more than 100 million people in the US and are the 7th leading cause of death.
What’s more, blood sugar imbalances are often a primary factor in many other chronic health disorders, such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s, stroke, and autoimmunity.
As a practitioner, it’s paramount that you master dysglycemia, however many fail to realize that managing blood sugar disorders is often much more complex than simply recommending a low-carb diet and exercise.
In the fifth Kharrazian Institute course, Diabetes and Dysglycemia: Clinical Strategies and Treatment Applications, you will learn what the latest research tells us about blood sugar disorders, and why outdated models of treatment are failing so many patients.
Dysglycemia is linked to many other chronic health disorders
Blood sugar imbalances create their own list of troubling symptoms and also promote myriad health disorders.
In the standard health care model, dysglycemia and diabetes are managed with medications. The alternative model uses a low-carb diet.
However, both fail to address a number of more complex issues that can be related to dysglycemia. These can be related to the brain, liver, endocrine system, and other physiological pathways. Instead, patients continue to suffer from stubborn and mysterious symptoms they can’t seem to overcome.
In the Kharrazian Institute diabetes and dysglycemia course, you’ll learn new clinical protocols based on the latest research to address stubborn dysglycemia symptoms that have more complex underlying mechanisms than simple strategies can address.
Do you have patients with diabetes and dysglycemia who are not responding to standard dietary protocols?
Chronic health disorders such as dysglycemia and diabetes do not always respond to a cookie-cutter diet and protocol approach. Symptoms can be stubborn and patients non-responsive for what seem like mysterious reasons.
That’s because multiple systems interact with the body’s blood sugar-handling system, and a breakdown in any one those systems can make it difficult to manage dysglycemia.
Also, the more regularly you practice functional medicine, the more complex your patient cases will become, and these patients are less likely to respond to boilerplate approaches.
Our understanding of dysglycemia, diabetes, and other blood sugar imbalance disorders has evolved significantly during the last 10 years. Standard treatment models in both conventional and alternative medicine are outdated in many cases.
Learn what the newer research — and Dr. Kharrazian’s 20+ years of clinical trial and error and his exhaustive review of the research — tell us about managing blood sugar disorders today.
Treat the stubborn blood sugar disorder issues that other practitioners miss — and improve outcomes for chronic health disorders in general
Two of the biggest challenges patients with chronic health disorders face are symptoms that are mysterious and stubborn. It’s frustrating for practitioners too — you follow all the protocols, go to the best seminars, read the latest studies, articles, and books, and yet some of your patients still don’t improve like they should.
The truth is, science and our understanding of chronic health disorders is continually evolving as researchers make new discoveries.
The information available today radically changes our understanding of diabetes and dysglycemia compared to 10 years ago. However, how many practitioners are actually integrating this new knowledge into their practice?
Because blood sugar disorders play an integral role in so many chronic health disorders, Dr. Kharrazian has been staying current on all the latest research and integrating new findings into his clinical protocols.
Through trial and error in an ongoing quest to help some of the sickest patients with the most complex cases — the ones no one else can help — he has developed a sequence of steps for identifying and managing the different underlying mechanisms of diabetes and dysglycemia.
When you learn the latest research — and how to implement those findings clinically — former mysteries turn into deeper knowledge and understanding of how the body works, and how to address break downs in function.
As a result, your patients are happier, they refer their friends and acquaintances to you, and your job satisfaction goes up.
That’s because you are armed with the knowledge and insight to tackle more complex cases.
Introducing the most advanced diabetes and dysglycemia course offered anywhere on the planet
The Kharrazian Institute diabetes and dysglycemia course is the result of Dr. Kharrazian’s ongoing clinical developments, exhaustive literature reviews, and published research during his last 20+ years of practice.
In his fifth course for Kharrazian Institute, his goal is to help you fully grasp the pathophysiology of dysglycemia and diabetes in ways that go beyond standard approaches.
He will take you on the same step-by-step journey of managing blood sugar disorders he uses with his own patients. This includes far more than measuring fasting glucose and HbA1c and prescribing a low-carb diet.
You must also consider complex inter-relationships between the blood sugar handling system and the brain, the liver, adipocytes, the immune system, the endocrine system, and more.
You will learn the nuances of blood sugar disorders and how to couple a deep grasp of dysglycemia with a thorough patient evaluation to customize a treatment application unique to each patient using diet, nutrition, and lifestyle strategies.
The Kharrazian Institute diabetes and dysglycemia course is the first to integrate blood sugar handling physiology with the latest findings in neurology, immunology, and endocrinology
During this weekend course you’ll not only learn the newest diabetes and dysglycemia research, you’ll also leave with protocols you can implement in your practice right away.
Topics you’ll master include:
In order to optimize your patients’ care …
You must approach diabetes and dysglycemia from the standpoint that the same protocol will not work for everyone.
Instead, you must learn to identify the underlying mechanisms.
This course will teach you the most complete diabetes and dysglycemia strategies and how to implement them right away
The comprehensive Diabetes and Dysglycemia Clinical Strategies and Treatment Applications Course is based on more than 20 years of Dr. Kharrazian’s experience working with patients throughout the U.S. and Europe, breakthrough scientific research, and the innovation of his own clinical strategies.
You’ll learn the physiological, neurological, and endocrine mechanisms underlying blood sugar disorders, diagnostic strategies, and how to address them based on each patient’s unique health profile.
He will present evidence-based models incorporating diet, nutrition, and lifestyle protocols. Clinical applications of neurological based mechanisms, adrenal and endocrine disorders, microbiome influences, inflammation, hepatic mechanisms, and other factors will also be highlighted.
Dr. Kharrazian will share with you the same clinical strategies and treatment applications he personally uses for successful evaluation and management of diabetes and dysglycemia.
By the end of course, you’ll have an effective clinical model from the minute a patient walks into your office with chronic and stubborn dysglycemia disorders that are trapping them in other irresolvable chronic health and autoimmune disorders. You’ll learn correct diagnosis, assessment, treatment plans, and follow-up to manage the many diabetic and dysglycemic patients seeking treatment today.
Some of the topics you’ll learn in the Kharrazian Institute diabetes and dysglycemia course
As research of diabetes and dysglycemia advances, so does our collective knowledge of these blood sugar disorders.
However, integrating new research into a clinical practice can be challenging, especially when it pertains to the brain, the microbiome, and the endocrine system.
Thankfully, the Kharrazian Institute gives you clear clinical strategies you can implement right away.

Here is why you need to sign up for the Kharrazian Institute diabetes and dysglycemia course
Diabetes and dysglycemia are among the most common health disorders in both conventional and alternative medicine today. Practitioners in both models are failing countless numbers of patients who do not fit the basic treatment plans. Yet the demand for effective blood sugar care is huge and continues to grow.
Tragically, many patients suffer for years with unmanaged or poorly managed blood sugar disorders, which can result in devastating consequences, such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Most diabetes and dysglycemia patients visit multiple doctors before finding the care they need. Dr. Kharrazian will teach you how to be the practitioner they stick with.
Be the change the world of medicine so desperately needs, and a much-needed alternative to the disregard many dysglycemia patients endure.

Testimonials about the Kharrazian Institute courses
The very first course I attended with Dr. Kharrazian was his Functional Endocrinology course back in 2003 and boy did that ever rock my world. His Kharrazian Institute Neuroinflammation course just did the same thing… but on a MUCH larger scale. It’s a total game changer. Paradigm shifting. I’m 20+ years in practice and I’ve noticed patients are getting so much harder to treat, with much more complex and chronic issues, and now I have a much better understanding why and what to do about it! Dr. K — thank you for putting this revolutionary information together!
I’ve practiced 23 years and one of my biggest pet peeves was “shooting blind.” By this I mean, “It’s been determined by years of clinical use that such and such a remedy is good for the treatment of X.” I always felt inadequate, exposed, and unsure of the variables. I can’t express in words the degree of appreciation I have for your dedication to determining mechanisms, researching studies, and most importantly breaking down this disparate information into readily accessible and mostly easy to understand, maps of malfunctioning physiology. I have found it invaluable. As you repeatedly stressed at your Functional Neurology Seminars program in the past, it’s sloppy clinical work to proceed with treatment until a clear picture of where the dominos fell first is figured out, so the appropriate treatment is arrived at. A million thanks to a fabulous contributor.
This seminar was more eye opening about why some of these chronic failures we’ve all had as practitioners need more of a neuro-metabolic approach and to give yourself and the patient time and give realistic expectations so we both don’t get burned out or disappointed. That was huge for me. Thanks Dr. Kharrazian.
This has been a freaking gorgeous course. Looking forward to the digestive health course in September.
What a blessing to have been able to follow that neuroinflammation course. Full of scientific data but lots of clinical applications that are very helpful for practitioners. I’m very happy to be able to follow that course since nothing is available like this in France. This should be taught in med school. Thank you Dr. Datis Kharrazian!
What a brilliant lecture and very clinical. Hammering home the points and reviewing while we went along really prepared me for the exam. So practical and I will be attending the next two in the series. Very well done. Really can’t say enough good things today. Thanks to everyone involved to pull it off and make livestream possible for me here in Canada.
Dr. Kharrazian has literally given me hope and if I could use one word to describe my weekend it would be “PROFOUND”. I am truly grateful for you!!!
Thanks for the excellent, clinically translatable course; with much appreciation for the lucid organization and abundant supportive documents.
