Here is an Excerpt:
DIABETES – are you at risk? If you’re overweight, sedentary or experiencing troubling symptoms, the answer could be YES.
The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 23.6 million Americans, or about 8% of the population, have diabetes. Approximately 24% of diabetes cases, about 5.7 million Americans, are undiagnosed. An additional 86 million people are estimated to have pre-diabetes, a condition where blood glucose levels are abnormally high—but not yet high enough to be considered diabetes. Over 50% of those with diabetes are age 60 and older, about 12.2 million seniors. Diabetes is the fifth deadliest disease in the U.S. and the leading cause of kidney failure, adult onset blindness, and non-traumatic lower limb amputations. It is also a significant cause of heart disease and stroke—adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates 2 to 4 times higher and risk of stroke that is 2 to 4 times greater than nondiabetic adults. Overall, heart disease and stroke account for about 65% of deaths in people with diabetes.
However the news is not all bad.
In fact, the latest research findings are revolutionizing diabetic treatments and optimizing outcomes.
