Today is Diabetes ALERT Day!!! Know Your Risks!

Posted on March 22, 2016 at 1:20 PM

What is the American Diabetes Association "Alert Day" and why is so important?

American Diabetes Association "Alert Day" is meant to bring awareness of course or "SOUND THE ALARM" so people can take action and get the medical care they need to live well.

Diabetes is a very serious disease. Nearly 30 million people (adults and kids) in the United States live with it every day.  More than a quarter of them don’t even know they have it and simply aren’t getting the medical care they need.

Did you know that an additional 86 million people have prediabetes?  That means they are high risk for developing type 2 diabetes.  People with prediabetes have blood glucose (sugar) higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

It's so very important to know and understand your risks so you can take the necessary steps to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.  Please me and the Watch Me FLEX Fitness family, to help bring awareness to the seriousness of Diabetes! It starts with YOU! Today, you can take a quick easy, annonymous online risk test at the following site Diabetes.ORG/TAKEAMINUTE   

Please remember to share this information with your colleagues, friends and family!

In Good Health,

Liz

Diabetes is reversible. I am talking about the most common form of diabetes which is type 2.

I have reversed it in so many cases myself and there are documented cases of thousands of people who have reversed diabetes with the help of experts.

Glucose is the sugar which is used by every cell of the body to produce energy. This is carried by a hormone insulin to most of the cells. When sugar levels are high, the cells do not allow sugar inside and that is when we say Insulin has become ineffective. i.e. Insulin sensitivity has come down and the condition is known as Diabetes when excess sugar starts to circulate in the blood.

Even the fat cells no longer store sugar. So any activity which burns energy will make your insulin sensitive and push glucose inside the cells reducing your sugar levels in the blood. When the intake of sugar is reduced, a similar result is observed.

It takes a long time for the body to reverse diabetes and the body needs a lot of nutrients, as in a diabetic State the body is depleted of many nutrients.

Diabetics are prone to infection and other chronic diseases like kidney failure, heart disease etc.

Therefore it is important that you reverse the diabetes with a controlled and customized diet and not by yo yo dieting like reducing food intake. I definitely think that every parent needs to check out the site www.DiabetesReversalTactics.info if you?re serious about reversing your type 2 diabetes.

Good luck!
