We’ve been told, Diabetes is an incurable disease whereby, a person has to rely on medications to control it for the rest of his or her life. This is just another lie being told by the “Big Pharma” so that they can get people on a drug permanently. It is like being put on a monthly payment plan by the pharmaceutical industry every time they get another patient on a lifelong regiment of medications. The patient pays monthly for the rest of their life without any cure in site. Why do people continue to trust those who benefit fr Continue reading >>

    In 2015 there were 1.59 million deaths worldwide attributed to diabetes. Diabetes is now within the top ten killers of humanity which was unheard of even as early as 2000. Why the dramatic increase in diabetics? I don't think peoples life-style changed a lot between 2000 and 2015. What can be the possible reason for such a huge increase. According to stats, in 2016 Saudi Arabia's 17.6% population has diabetes which is soon going to be 20%. Can anybody suggest possible reasons for these huge numbers. One would think that the advancement in knowledge and awareness should have brought down the numbers. But they are increasing in huge numbers worldwide. I wonder why?

    People are following the sedentary lifestyle and adopting fast food. I think these two are the basic region of growing number of diabetics. Another important risk factor is Stress, which I think everyone will be agree.

    Yes, Kumar, I agree completely.
    People seem to be up to their nose in stress. Demands of the industry, office and even the schools are pushing the kids to the limits. How can we have a stress free life? Where is the time for cooking? They just grab whatever food is available nearby! How can we really extract ourselves from this mess? I asked this question to someone and his reply was: can you hold, I am busy right now!

Diabetes As A Development Issue

Non-communicable diseases such as diabetes are often associated with industrialised countries, and communicable diseases with developing countries. In the past this division was partly justified, but as a result of globalisation and urbanisation the prevalence of this disease is rising rapidly also in low- and middle-income countries. It not only causes further health problems, it also has a high economic impact that has the power to undermine the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Diabetes needs to be managed well in any country, but conditions in poor countries are particularly challenging. [ By David Whiting ] Diabetes is a chronic, non-communicable disease. There are two main types: type 1 is diagnosed primarily in the young and is characterised by the absence of insulin; type 2 is usually diagnosed in adults and is characterised by a relative insufficiency of insulin. Both forms of diabetes lead to serious complications if not managed properly – including damage to sight and nerves, kidney disease, amputations and increased risk of cardiovascular disease, such as strokes, for example. The causes of type 1 are largely unknown, although there is some evidence of a link to in Continue reading >>

‘diabetes Belt’ Encircles Southern U.s.

Nearly 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, according to the latest Centers for Disease Control estimate, and that number could expand to one-third of the U.S. population by 2050 if obesity and other trends continue. The NewsHour has been covering this story, reporting on efforts to improve diabetes treatment among low-income and uninsured patients and fight childhood obesity in Mississippi. This week, a new study highlights the importance of that effort in Mississippi and other southern states. A claw-shaped “diabetes belt” stretches across the southeastern United States and up through Appalachia, according to a Centers for Disease Control study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine. More than 11 percent of people in those areas have diabetes, compared to 8.5 percent of people outside the diabetes belt. The new analysis will allow public health officials to better target diabetes interventions and outreach to areas with the greatest need, said Lawrence Barker, the lead author of the report and associate director for science in the division of diabetes translation at the CDC. Researchers from the CDC used county-by-county estimates of diabete Continue reading >>
