Stop Diabesity In Its Tracks!

Today’s post is going to be a re-blog of a valuable blog if you are concerned about the correlation of diet and health. It turns out that a person can get type two diabetes even if they are not overweight. Some people just can’t handle carbs as well as others, and it may not lead to putting on weight while it will still have the other blood chemistry changes that eventually lead to diabetes. This blog is worth exploring further.

Valerie's Voice: For the Health of It

Diabesity is the combination of diabetes and obesity and it just may very well be the largest health epidemic in human history. The epidemic is expected to plague 366 million people in 2030 (2. Wild S, Roglic G, Green A, Sicree R, King H. Global prevalence of diabetes: estimates for the year 2000 and projections for 2030. Diabetes Care. 2004 May;27(5):1047-53.)

Right now:

  • Nearly 60% of the population has a genetic predisposition for the development of diabetes and/or obesity. The predisposition is accelerated with poor diet and leads to chronic illnesses.
  • 2 out 3 patients are overweight or obese.
  • 1 out 3 adult patients have pre diabetes.
  • 1 out 10 adult patients will have diabetes.
