As obesity levels reach historically high levels, the type 2 diabetes crisis is growing at an unprecedented rate and will only get worse.
Between 2001 and 2002, the diagnosis rate of diabetes rose from 5.5% of Americans to an alarming 6.5%. Just one year!
In total, 12 million Americans have been diagnosed, and approximately 5 million Americans have or do not know diabetes. There are still 12 million people experiencing type 2 diabetes due to lack of glucose.
It gets worse with
out learning, and the possibility of untreated diabetes puts us at serious risk of injury, including blindness, amputation and eventual death, although it is not limited to these.
Type 2 diabetes is almost completely preventable. Doctors claim that they eat less, eat healthier, and exercise healthier. The statistics accurately indicate how many Americans are currently overweight.
Statistically speaking, people live longer, and they continue to grow. However, if type 2 diabetes is not controlled, this will not happen.
In the final analysis, we are a culture that affects how we operate and when we operate.
And, sadly, the epidemic of diabetes is not just a concern of the United States. As the disease news spread, it spread to Asia, the Middle East and the Caribbean.
By 2025, the number of diabetes patients worldwide is expected to grow to 380 million. Diabetes in developed countries between the ages of 40 and 59 also affects most young and middle-aged populations.
