Simply put, diabetes is a defect in the body’s ability to convert glucose (sugar) into energy. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) calls diabetes a “serious and growing public health concern.” In our view, diabetes is the single greatest health issue facing the United States today.
According to the American Diabetes Association, 25.8 million Americans have diabetes, and 79 million more have pre-diabetes, a condition that sets the stage for a diagnosis. And the CDC predicts that the rate of diabetes will triple (yes, triple) by 2050. This scourge is a major cause of heart disease, the #1 killer in America. Perhaps most alarming is that diabetes (particularly Type 2 diabetes) is, in truth, a disease of choice and completely reversible with diet and lifestyle changes.
Heart disease, stroke, and cancer, the top three killers in America, have an important health condition in common. It's not diabetes, but a significant pre-cursor to diabetes. In today's important LivingFuelTV HealthAlert, we explain this condition and discuss an important health marker that can measure your susceptibility to type 2 diabetes. We'll also present in simple terms the key differences in type 1, type 2, and type 3 diabetes. With the booming impact of diabetes on global health, this episode contains 'must know' information.
Statistics show that heart disease and cancer are the leading causes of death in the United States. However, did you know that the epidemic of diabetes and its devastating effects on the body may greatly contribute to these conditions? It really all starts with sugar intake and the veritable explosion of sugar consumption in the United States. How can you defend yourself and your family? This is the topic of today's important episode of LivingFuelTV with KC Craichy. Today, learn the little-discussed link between sugar, diabetes and the scourge of chronic dis-eases that face our country.
Despite messages we receive from conventional medicine, even Diabetic Living magazine (complete with enticing cover photos of cakes, cookies and other sweet treats), diabetes is a gravely serious diagnosis and should be treated as an emergency. It's a death sentence, but a sentence that you can reverse in the case of Type 2 diabetes, and manage in the case of Type 1 diabetes. How? By using information, education, and a steely resolve to not "live with" diabetes. You'll often hear diabetics refer to "my diabetes" as if they own it. Let's think and live differently!
Today on LivingFuelTV with KC Craichy, learn the important distinctions between pre-diabetes, Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, and the newly-coined Type 3 diabetes. Also, you'll learn steps you can take today to help your body reverse diabetes or prevent you from becoming a diabetic statistic in the first place.
