Prevent Diabetes: The Not-So-Silent Killer
It’s no secret that the number of adults with diabetes in the US has been climbing steadily upward year after year. According to a study I read, about 16 million people in the US are estimated to have diabetes – and half of them don’t even know yet! As a matter of fact, I just recently found out that a good friend of mine was diagnosed as diabetic (get your yearly physicals, people!). There are things your can do to prevent diabetes.
Diabetes can go undetected for a period of time, but that doesn’t mean it’s not doing damage.
For years, we’ve been told that a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet is the best way to eat healthy. Unfortunately, that’s not necessarily the case. Carbohydrates, sweet or not, are all sugars; and excess blood sugar often leads to excess weight and ultimately to diabetes.
Despite what the experts suggest, Americans have been eating more carbs, more fats, more of everything, and exercising far too little. Sadly, even kids aren’t immune from morbid obesity nowadays. The research is staggering.
The good news is that diabetes, while on the rise, is entirely avoidable if you live a healthy lifestyle.
You can prevent diabetes. I’ve got so much information on healthy living that I couldn’t possibly share it all with you here and now. So, if you’re interested, just contact me and I’ll be more than happy to email you everything I know.
Keep in mind, I’m not a doctor, and I don’t provide medical advice, but what I will share with you saved my life, and I pass information along so it can save others! I was given a death sentence that prompted me to research and what I found was this: We are not victims lying in wait for deadly disease and the Grim Reaper. There are things we can do to help prevent diabetes.
There are answers to all of your questions. Even if you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes or another illness, you DON’T have to take NO for an answer. I’ll supply you with some interesting reads, studies, and reports that can help inform you on the subject and lead you to the right questions to ask.
Do you think it’s possible to reverse diabetes, or stop it entirely, before you’re diagnosed? Please follow my blog and let me know your thoughts! Feel free to email your questions and anything you’d like to share: firstname.lastname@example.org
