Did you know that there are 34.2 million people in the U.S. that have been diagnosed with Diabetes and 88 million adults that have been diagnosed with Pre-diabetes? And if that's not bad enough . . . studies estimate there's another 7 million more of us that don't even know we have it yet?
And with those numbers . . . sadly in 2019, just last year . . . 270,000 people died from diabetes!
So my question is this . . . are we willing to just live with diabetes? Or are we ready to take a stand and eliminate this deadly disease?
Today we're going to talk about how diabetes works and how to help eliminate it naturally . . . because believe it or not . . . there are answers to this debilitating disease!
So first . . . as we all know from previous Health Tips . . . "Insulin" is a very important and life sustaining hormone in the body. And if we are healthy . . . this 'insulin" that is produced by the pancreas, regulates the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood.
Now, this "insulin" allows the body to use sugar (glucose) from carbohydrates in the food we eat to be used as cell energy. When the cells have enough, the liver and muscle tissues store the extra glucose in the form of glycogen. This glycogen is then broken down into sugar again and released when you need energy between meals, during exercise or while you sleep.
So what is this illness all about? Well . . . Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose (or blood sugar) levels are too high or too low.
Type I diabetes is a chronic disease in which cells in the pancreas that make the hormone "Insulin' are 'destroyed" and the body is "unable" to make enough "insulin". In this case . . . getting insulin from another source is necessary for survival to move glucose from the bloodstream into the body's cells. Now, type I diabetes develops very quickly and symptoms are obvious.
For people with type II diabetes, the pancreas "is" making the hormone "insulin" correctly, but the body's cells have stopped responding well to this hormone. The body then struggles to move glucose from the blood into the cells despite adequate levels of this hormone. Therefore, the body stops making adequate insulin for the body to function correctly and unfortunately . . . will get to the point of not making insulin at all. Now, type II diabetes can develop over many years. And as I stated above, many of us don't even know we have it until a chronic condition occurs.
Even though conventional medicine and its science says there's no cure and that we can only "manage" this disease . . . I believe it's time we start thinking "outside of the box" as they say.
If you've been following my Health Tips . . . then you know there's a solution to this problem also. We just need to know where to look.
Tomorrow we'll continue this topic with a reason and natural solution for this debilitating disease.
