Diabetes Increases Your Risk for other Disease or Death.
Via the CDC Diabetes (DM) increases your risk for other complications: Heart-Disease and Stroke: 2-4x risk of death, Over 70% of people with DM have High BP, Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness.
Diabetes continues to be the leading cause of end-stage Kidney-disease, 70% of diabetics suffer from neurological symptoms, over 60% of all lower limb amputations occur with diabetics. Modern drugs and surgery offer no cure for diabetics. At best, current drugs allow diabetics to maintain a reasonably functional lifestyle, but these drugs will never treat the cause of the disease. Because of this diabetics strain our health care system to a cost of $130 billion per year.
As carbohydrate intake goes up and fat intake goes down, the number of deaths from diabetics plummets from 20.4 to 2.9 per 100,000 people. So what does that tell you....eating a plant-based, whole grain diet is the key.
