One Third Of Americans Are Headed For Diabetes, And They Don't Even Know It

One Third Of Americans Are Headed For Diabetes, And They Don't Even Know It

One third of Americans may be on their way to developing full-blown type 2 diabetes, and most of them don't even know it. A recent report from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that more than 84 million Americans, or roughly one-third of the population, have prediabetes, a condition marked by higher-than-normal blood sugar. Of that group, 90 percent aren't aware they have the condition. The primary risk factors for type 2 diabetes are genetics and lifestyle — excess weight, obesity and lack of exercise contribute to this alarming medical trend. "People with prediabetes who don't change their lifestyle are at a much higher risk of developing heart disease and stroke and can develop type 2 diabetes within five years if left untreated," said William T. Cefalu, MD, chief scientific, medical & mission officer of the American Diabetes Association. The health risks go beyond heart disease and stroke. As diabetes worsens over time, blindness, kidney disease and lower-limb amputation are also major health risks. Diabetes was the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States in 2015, according to the CDC. This population of diabetes "ticking time bombs" is particularly alarming, because in many cases type 2 diabetes can be avoided, simply by leading a healthy lifestyle. Type 2 diabetes is often progressive, and within 10 years of diagnosis, 50 percent of individuals need to use insulin to control their blood glucose levels, according to the ADA. More than 30 million Americans — 9.4 percent of the U.S. population — are already battling diabetes, according to the CDC's National Diabetes Statistics Report, which used data through 2015. The CDC found that of those cases, 7.2 million were undiagnosed. "The country needs to take this seriously, ratc Continue reading >>

It’s Horrible, Deadly — And Insanely Easy To Fix. But America’s Troubles With Food Insecurity Means Millions Are Closer To The Scurvy Zone Than We Admit.

It’s Horrible, Deadly — And Insanely Easy To Fix. But America’s Troubles With Food Insecurity Means Millions Are Closer To The Scurvy Zone Than We Admit.

It’s horrible, deadly — and insanely easy to fix. But America’s troubles with food insecurity means millions are closer to the scurvy zone than we admit. By Leigh Cowart Right now, there’s about a cup of orange juice in my gut, sloshing around and mingling with my stomach acid as it delivers all the vitamin C that I require for the day. I’ve got some major bruises on my knees, and so once the essential nutrient hits my body’s internal transport system, the orange juice that I just drank will play an important role in wound healing, preventing future capillaries from bleeding too easily, and with any luck helping me perform enough sweet, sweet collagen synthesis to make it look like I sleep regularly. Vitamin C may be the most important water-soluble antioxidant in human plasma, and is required for all plants and animals. But while most other animals can synthesize their own supply, humans — along with other primates, guinea pigs, capybaras, some fish, and some bats — have to get theirs elsewhere. Hence the orange juice. The problem is that not everyone gets enough. And when vitamin C goes missing from a diet for long enough, the results can be explicitly unpleasant: scurvy. We act like scurvy is long left behind, a throwback disease, forgotten and dust-covered and banished to antiquity. But this scourge of sailors is, in fact, not something that humanity has outgrown. It still happens, and probably more than you realize. Scurvy, the most extreme result of prolonged lack of vitamin C, is, in a word, unpleasant. In three, it’s “fatal if untreated.” The disease kicks off with the universal symptoms of “ugh”: low-grade inflammation, fatigue, bleeding gums, and swollen joints. Vitamin C is absolutely necessary for healthy collagen, which matters gre Continue reading >>

Brittany Wagner Is New To Wisconsin And She Just Won Ms. America

Brittany Wagner Is New To Wisconsin And She Just Won Ms. America

Brittany Wagner is new to Wisconsin and she just won Ms. America Lainey Seyler , Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Published 12:36 p.m. CT March 29, 2018 | Updated 9:20 p.m. CT March 29, 2018 Brittany Wagner was crowned Ms. America March 10. CONNECT TWEET LINKEDIN 2 COMMENTEMAILMORE Wisconsin is not known to be a "pageant state." Nevertheless, Brittany Wagner who lives in Hazelhurst, Wisconsin, population 1,273 as of the 2010 census won Ms. America on March 10. The Ms. America pageant participants must be at least 26 years old and can be married, single, divorced or widowed. (Miss America must be single and between ages of 17 and 25.) Contestantscompete in categories like evening gown, fitness (athletic wear), on-stage questions, a platform speech and a panel-style interview with the judges. Wagner has been doing pageants since she was 11; she's now 29, and this is her first national pageant win. She grew up in California, one of the "pageant states." In fact, she just moved to Wisconsinfrom the Los Angeles area. She was named Ms. Wisconsin inNovember Although pageants aren't as popular in Wisconsin as in California, Wagner said, "People are very inviting if I want to show up as Ms. Wisconsin." It's easy to think of pageants as based too much on looks and that they perpetuates thisidea that women should live up to a certain ideal. And yes, maybe they do. Brittany Wagner walks across the stage just after she was crowned Ms. America. But for Wagner and many contestants, it's more than a beauty competition. "The competition is fun and great," she said. "Everyone has a different reason as to why they are there. I'm looking forward to working in the community." Everyone who participates in the Ms. Americapageant has to do at least three community service events prior to the compet Continue reading >>

Diabetes, Cost Of Care Top Health Concerns For U.s. Latinos

Diabetes, Cost Of Care Top Health Concerns For U.s. Latinos

Latino immigrants in the U.S. say the quality and affordability of health care is better in the U.S. than in the countries they came from, according to the latest survey by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health. But many report having health care problems. About a third of immigrant respondents (31 percent) said they'd had a serious problem with being able to pay for health insurance in the past 12 months. And more than 1 in 4 had a serious problem affording doctor and hospital bills and prescription medicines. But the health issue that Latinos said is most concerning for them and their families — whether they were born in the U.S. or immigrated here — is diabetes. Last year, in another poll, Latinos said cancer was the biggest problem facing the country. Hispanic populations have a high prevalence of Type 2 diabetes. About 10 percent of Latino adults have been diagnosed with it or have "prediabetes," a stage of the disease that often goes undetected. One important factor: Latinos may be genetically predisposed to the disease — a risk that can be aggravated by environment and diet. The Diabetes 'Plague' Take the example of East Los Angeles, an area heavily populated by Mexican-Americans. Like many of her friends and family members, Rebecca Martinez-Rocha says she struggles with her weight. At one point, she weighed more than 320 pounds. "I don't think I realized it at the time, whether it was denial or I stopped getting on a scale," she says, "but I was morbidly obese." And, as it turns out, Martinez-Rocha was prediabetic, a diagnosis she received at a local health clinic. "I wasn't aware of the fact that I was ill; I figured that I was relatively young, in my 20s and early 30s," she says. "It was kind of one of those 'aha Continue reading >>

The Latest: Official Says Book Led To Reopening Till Probe

The Latest: Official Says Book Led To Reopening Till Probe

The Latest: Official says book led to reopening Till probe The Latest: Official says book led to reopening Till probe BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) The Latest on the renewed investigation into the killing of Emmett Till (all times local): A federal official says the renewed investigation of the killing of Emmett Till was prompted by a book published last year that includes a key figure's acknowledgement that she lied about the case. A federal official familiar with the matter told The Associated Press that information published in the 2017 book led federal investigators to re-examine the case. The official wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to AP on condition of anonymity. The renewed investigation was first revealed in a recent federal report, which didn't specify what new information investigators were acting on. The 2017 book "The Blood of Emmett Till" by Timothy B. Tyson quotes a white woman, Carolyn Donham, as saying during a 2008 interview that she wasn't truthful when she testified that Till grabbed her, whistled and made sexual advances at a Mississippi store in 1955. Associated Press writer Mike Balsamo contributed The author of a book that included new revelations about the killing of Emmett Till says he shared all of his research materials with the FBI last year. Timothy Tyson said at a news conference Thursday that he was contacted by the FBI several weeks after his book came out in January 2017. He says he assumes his book helped prompt the renewed investigation of the black teen's brutal slaying. The Duke University scholar says he shared materials including recordings of 2008 interviews with a white woman, Carolyn Donham, acknowledging that she wasn't truthful when she testified that Till made sexual advances at a Mississippi store in 195 Continue reading >>

Diabetes Emerges As Japan’s Hidden Scourge

Diabetes Emerges As Japan’s Hidden Scourge

Reading a review of British writer Bee Wilson’s “First Bite: How We Learn to Eat” in the London Review of Books, I stumbled on an astonishing figure: 4 million people in the U.K. have diabetes. An unhealthy diet and increasingly sedentary lifestyle have taken their toll, causing a 65 percent surge in cases in the past decade alone. Treating this epidemic is costing the National Health Service an estimated £1 million (roughly ¥155 million) an hour. Obesity is the main culprit, and one major dietary factor is the high-sugar content in many processed foods. It was astounding to learn that tomato ketchup (22.8 percent) has a higher sugar content than Coca-Cola (10.6 percent), and that we consume far more glucose-fructose syrup and other sugary ingredients than most people are probably aware of. Globalization in eating habits has spread a craving for what dieticians call “SFS”: sugar, fat, salt. Sweet-salty food with an undercurrent of fat is a global crowd-pleaser and the mainstay at fast-food restaurants, but is not good for our health. Coffee itself isn’t bad for you, but all those flavored lattes are oozing sugar and calories. Given the longevity enjoyed by Japanese, often attributed to their healthy diet, I never really thought about the incidence of diabetes here. America, after all, is the homeland of spandex for a good reason, but obesity in Japan seems relatively rare. Yet as of 2015, Japan has 7.2 million people diagnosed with diabetes. The average cost per patient is more than ¥400,000 a year, mostly covered by national health insurance. About 7.6 percent of adults between the ages of 20 and 79 are diabetic and it is estimated that Japan may have more than 3 million undiagnosed cases. Part of the reason for the sharp increase of diabetes in Japan is Continue reading >>

Diabetic Driver Who Fatally Hit Girl Had Previous Accident

Diabetic Driver Who Fatally Hit Girl Had Previous Accident

Yahoo!-ABC News Network | 2018 ABC News Internet Ventures. All rights reserved. Diabetic Driver Who Fatally Hit Girl Had Previous Accident WATCH Diabetic Driver Who Fatally Hit Girl Had Previous Crash Oregon investigators have reopened a case looking into the death of an 11-year-old girl who was killed by a diabetic driver with a previous history of losing consciousness at the wheel, police said. "We reopened the case last week when it came to our attention that this was not the first time the driver got into a car crash because of a diabetic episode," Sgt. Bob Ray of the Washington County Sheriff's Department told ABC News. "We also learned the driver had run out of his diabetes supplies some time before the accident." Kylie Hornych was killed in April when David Herman, a school teacher in Washington County, Ore., had a diabetic episode while driving, lost consciousness, and drove his car into the front of Hornych's home, where she was standing, authorities said. "Kylie was just coming back from her neighbor's house when this driver in a Prius came down the wrong side of the road, hit a Jeep, and then crashed into the house," Hornych's grandmother, Carolyn Duffy, 64, of Portland, Ore., told ABC News. "She was taken to the hospital, but by the time I got there she had died of a neck injury," Duffy said. "Our family is having a really hard time, especially Kylie's mom and younger sister," Duffy added. "They were all so close. We just tell each other we love each other every day." Police questioned Herman and decided not to press charges because there was no evidence of criminal activity. "Officers asked Mr. Herman if he was ever in a car accident involving his diabetes, and Mr. Herman said this had been the first time," Ray said. But an investigation conducted by ABC a Continue reading >>
