Diabetes - A National Epidemic


Are you a diabetic? If so, you are definitely not alone. There are approximately 16 million people in the United States who have diabetes. Public health experts believe diabetes will be the next great lifestyle disease epidemic to afflict the United States. A study by doctors from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently startled people with the finding that the prevalence of diagnosed cases of diabetes had increased 33% over the past eight years.

While an estimated 11 million have been diagnosed, 5 million people are not aware that they have the disease. Each day approximately 2,200 people are diagnosed with diabetes. About 798,000 people will be diagnosed this year. Do you have a friend or family member with diabetes? If you have not been diagnosed as a diabetic, are you perhaps one of the millions that are undiagnosed? The following are some warning signs to look for:

Frequent urination
Unusual thirst
Extreme hunger
Extreme fatigue
Irritability
Frequent infections
Blurred vision
Cuts / bruises that are slow to heal
Tingling / numbness in the hands and feet
Recurring skin, gum or bladder infections

There are two primary reasons for Diabetes, 1) A prolonged diet high in carbohydrates and 2) Improper and under nourishment. Today, most people with diabetes are only treating the symptoms and not getting to the root of the problem. Furthermore, most medications given to diabetics are compounding problems instead of getting to the source. The best way to manage Diabetes is to get to the root causes.

Diabetics can help protect themselves by changing their daily routine. Although doctors have stated that there is no cure for diabetes, the following is recommended:

Exercise
Reducing sugar consumption
Improved nutrition
Nutritional supplementation

A company named Sportron International has developed a " Diabetic Pack " that is nutritionally supporting today's crisis with dramatic results. World renown nutritionist, Dr. W. Alan Tomlinson recently said, "Sportron's Diabetic Pack is the most advanced nutritional support available and has been scientifically developed to intervene and assist in cases of abnormal sugar metabolism."

The bottom line is that Diabetes has become a national epidemic. In an effort to assist Diabetics, there is a Weekly Diabetic Support Call with Live Q & A session Thursdays 8:30 EST 212-990-8000 passcode 9902# . This is not a sales call, it is a support call. provide a weekly environment where people can build relationships, feel cared about, share their ideas and ask questions... sort of a "radio talk show format"... very relaxed, impromptu and therefore always different each week.
