According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), diabetes was the sixth leading cause of death listed on US death certificates in the year 2002. We need to pay attention to these figures! These figures relate to 2002. Now that Type 2 diabetes is at epidemic levels, the figures are sure to be much higher.
It’s no secret diabetes of any kind can be dangerous and even fatal if it’s not properly addressed. Unfortunately, most cases of Type 2 diabetes are actually caused by having an unhealthy lifestyle in the first place. As hard as it can be for us to admit, many times Type 2 diabetes can be prevented or reversed just by making a few major lifestyle modifications. Just because you are genetically predisposed to this disease, it does not mean you have to allow it to come to fruition.
