Nutrientology’s primary focus is on nutrients, food and exercise as medicine, particularly in people with “pre-diabetes” or metabolic syndrome (also known as Syndrome X). We want to help you stop prediabetes and avoid full type 2 diabetes with all its potentially life-changing complications.
Nutrientology’s health information including our discussion of food, nutrients, supplements, exercise, and lifestyle recommendations strive to support healthy blood sugar and fat/cholesterol levels, healthy blood pressure, and body weight control to stop prediabetes so you can obtain peak health and avoid diabetes and its often devastating complications. We want you to live an independent life with strong, functional, mobile feet and legs well into your senior years. Movement is an integral part of health and wellness.
We typically write from a scientific perspective, but try to speak to a broad audience. We strive to present often-times highly technical information in a presentable and understandable way without insulting the intelligence of our readers. We want your feedback.
This is not an alternative medicine site. Proper management of medical conditions is not achieved with nutrient supplementation alone. Prediabetes – metabolic syndrome involves physician management of any medications, proper diet, as well as an overall lifestyle change including regular exercise.
Nutrient supplementation should be used in moderation to augment a proper diet, not to replace it.
The Nutrientology Store contains diet and exercise products as well as evidenced-based supplements to support an active healthier lifestyle. Dietary supplementation is used to fill nutritional deficiencies, support normal physiologic functions and facilitate peak health.
Robert Creighton, DPM is the site’s editor. Dr. Creighton is a podiatrist and foot surgeon practicing in Tampa Bay, Florida with over 23 years in podiatric practice treating thousands of patients afflicted with the physiological, physical, and psychological side effects of diabetes and prediabetes metabolic syndrome. After witnessing the growing numbers of pre-diabetics with foot problems, and diabetics with devastating foot complications, he has set out to make some public health contribution through this blog in an effort to stave off the growing incidence of these diseases and the foot and leg complications that result.
He believes these disorders present a pressing public health concern that need to be addressed in a multidisciplinary way.

- make a contribution to the health of people with pre-diabetes metabolic syndrome in an effort to impact the diabetes and obesity (“diabesity”) epidemics in the U.S.
