| 11/22/2014 | Reply

What is Diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes is a serious condition that can lead to health issues such as heart attack; stroke; blindness; kidney failure; or loss of toes, feet, or legs. Despite the fact that we’re all told diabetes is a permanent, lifelong condition that has no cure, utilizing a raw vegan diet has been proven time and time again to achieve surprising results – results even better than the standard carb gram counting diet recommended for decades by the American Diabetes Association.

I’ve Been Diagnosed With Prediabetes, What Should I Do?

According to researchers, there are more than 29 million Americans currently living with diabetes. Another 86 million Americans are living with prediabetes (defined as elevated blood sugar levels that aren’t high enough to be considered diabetic).

Unfortunately, millions of us are totally unaware of this pending health crisis.  Click here to review symptoms of diabetes, and if you have two or more, please see your doctor immediately. Without weight loss or moderate physical activity, many people with prediabetes will see the disease advance quickly and develop adult onset type 2 diabetes within 3 years.

For African American women the situation has reached crisis levels. Non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus is a serious metabolic disorder that affects an estimated 16 million Americans. Among black women, prediabetes has reached epidemic proportions, with 1 in 4 black women 55 years and older having actual diabetes.

It is only within the last decade that diabetes research has begun to examine racial differences in the etiology, treatment, and long-term complications of diabetes. Researchers are now focusing more on African American women within the context of diabetes research in the general population. Particular emphasis is being placed on risk factors, complications, and treatment approaches that involve both food and medicines. Diabetes prevention and public health issues related to black women are finally being openly discussed amongst health-care professionals.

Though medication such as Metformin is usually prescribed in the early stages of diagnosis, you cannot depend on pills to manage your prediabetes condition or your health. Take charge of your life and body by changing your diet; stop eating and drinking the foods and beverages that brought you to the stage you are now.

If you are ready to see proof that prediabetes can be controlled and diabetes reversed with a plant-based vegan diet, watch this video. These results fly in the face of conventional thought on the matter, but there is no doubt about the fabulous results researchers are achieving with lowering blood sugar levels to normal ranges very quickly.. providing millions with hope, and raising serious questions about the belief that this crippling disease has no cure.
