The unfortunate truth is that your healthcare team, and tens of thousands more like them, are part of the type 2 diabetes epidemic.
The U.S. healthcare system is dispensing bad information that’s robbing patients of their chances for full recovery.
Diabetes mellitus type 2 (T2DM) has reached epidemic levels in the USA. The condition affects the health of more than 29-million Americans, and the numbers are rising rapidly. If you don’t have the condition yourself, someone close to you does.
Diabetes is most prevalent among people age 65 and older and overweight people of all ages. Groups most at-risk include:
- Native Americans
- African Americans
- Asian Americans
The purpose of this page is to help you get the information your healthcare team hasn’t given you. Specifically, we want to help you understand that if you’re a type 2 diabetic, or have been diagnosed with prediabetes, in many cases you can reverse your condition.
Please soak that in for a second.
In most cases, if you act at the onset of diabetes, you can reverse your condition (put in remission) and eventually get off of the pills or injections prescribed to help control your blood sugar.
The Trouble with Our Healthcare System
Most diabetics, possibly even you, find themselves in a healthcare system designed to treat symptoms that commonly lead to:
- Heart attack,
- Liver failure,
- Blindness, and
- Blood vessel and nerve damage necessitating limb amputations.
For most patients the system does little to help them reverse the disease so they can return to normal health. Instead, it pays lip service to “lifestyle changes”, while continuing to treat patients with costly pharmaceuticals that most diabetics will continue to use until the day they die.
Of equal concern is the fact than over half of all people with type 2 are NOT EVEN AWARE they have it. The news is EVEN WORSE for people with prediabetes. The CDC estimates that 90 percent of people with this condition are unaware they are at-risk.
By all accounts, diabetes in America has increased a staggering 700 percent in 50 years. For a non-communicable disease, that’s unheard of anywhere else in modern medicine. It’s so pervasive that treatment of the disease is the number one cost in the U.S. healthcare system.
Coming up, I’m going to expose exactly how this terrible disease came to America and who is to blame. The systematic poisoning of Americans by the perpetrators continues. And the costs and numbers of people afflicted will continue to rise until we fight back and take control. That’s why I assembled this information.
Education is the first defense. You must educate yourself and take control if you want to reverse your condition.
The commentary on BloodSugarBasics.com is meant to supplement your knowledge of type 2 diabetes, its cause, and healthy lifestyle changes that can lead to recovery. All diabetic patients should follow the professional medical advice of their healthcare team, including nutrition, physical activity, testing and medication.
