Type 2 Diabetes – Part 1

Diabetes is the most common disorder of the endocrine system. It is as result of problems with the pancreatic hormone insulin. Insulin controls the amount of glucose (sugar, which comes from any carbohydrate food source: simple or complex) in the blood and the rate at which glucose is absorbed into the cells. Cells need glucose to produce energy for our everyday needs. In diabetes, too much glucose ends up in the bloodstream instead of being utilized by the cells, leading to an abnormal amount of glucose in the blood.

The statistics for those who currently have diabetes are staggering. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), diabetes is the number 7 cause of death in the U.S. among adults. It's been estimated that almost 24 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with it. Unfortunately there are about 6 million who don't even know they're diabetic. Then there's the 57 million who have prediabetes.

The U.S. government's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a new report estimating that 40% of Americans will develop diabetes during their lifetime. For certain minority groups the number is even higher: half of Hispanics and black women are predicted to develop type 2 diabetes.

Diabetics Need More Nutrients

We all want to be healthy and fit. We all want and deserve optimal health. Diabetics in general need more nutrients due to all the cellular damage which occurs inside the body. This is called oxidative stress from high levels of free radicals that damage arteries throughout the body. Diabetics should understand that there is more of a need for antioxidant support to reduce this oxidative stress.

  • 7 million people are undiagnosed.
  • Diabetes kills slowly.
  • Why is it 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 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.

Nutrition for Our Kids

Have you heard about the Senate Bill 464, called the Healthy Eating and Physical Activity act? It talks about improving both nutrition and physical activity for the parents and day care providers of school-age children. Even though this may be aimed more at pre-schools, why hasn't this been more broadly advertised, especially when diabetes and heart disease are currently epidemic with both parents and children now? These diseases are directly related to how we eat and live, and can be totally prevented with the right nutrition education.

According to a new study published online at from Primary Health Care Research & Development, many patients when first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes felt "in the dark" as to what to do next in regard to their eating habits. The research indicated that while waiting for a referral to attend a diabetes education program, patients had no idea about what to eat. Even exercise, which would be so easy to suggest is neglected.
