Diabetes is a "Silent Killer" - November is American Diabetes Month

Written by 

Diabetes is literally a "silent killer," yet you have the power to prevent it! Here are the facts:

  • 7 million people are undiagnosed.
  • Diabetes kills slowly.
  • Why is diabetes termed the "silent killer?" You may simply not know you have diabetes because it doesn't have any obvious symptoms initially.
  • Diabetes causes blood sugar to be too high and over time it damages many parts of your body similarly to how sugar slowly erodes your tooth enamel and causes cavities.
  • Specifically, the cells in the body can't turn the blood sugar into energy, the sugar builds up and then it:
    • Directly damages your heart, kidneys, eyes, liver, pancreas, and your nerves.
    • Results in blindness, kidney disease, gum disease, neuropathy, amputations, stroke, erectile dysfunction, heart attack, cancer, coma and just plain death, and not without inflicting a lot of pain and discomfort along the way

The good news is type 2 diabetes really is preventable and reversible. Here are a few simple ways to get started:

  • Lose weight. CMWM is here to help you lose weight quickly and safely.
  • Cut calories and decrease portion sizes, including what you may be drinking (alcohol, juices, sodas etc.).
  • Lower the amount of processed foods, particularly simple carbs and sugar, and increase your fruit and vegetable intake.
  • Increase physical activity. Work up slowly to at least 30 minutes of moderately intensive physical activity every day.

In the words of the Buddha: No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
