Diabetes: An Epidemic
Diabetes is a significant health concern worldwide, and the number of adults living with diabetes continues to rise. According to the Center for Disease Control’s Division of Diabetes Translation, the number of Americans diagnosed with diabetes rose from about 500,000 people in 1958 to 30,200,000 by the year 2015. Nearly a quarter of those who have diabetes don’t know that they have it.
This condition is a growing epidemic with devastating physical, emotional, and financial tolls on the people it affects. In the United States, diabetes kills more people each year than AIDS and breast cancer combined.
Many people don’t know about these alarming statistics and don’t realize the pressing need to address this issue from the root of the symptoms- poor lifestyle habits. While it’s true that there’s no cure for diabetes, there are measures that can be taken to reduce and improve symptoms, most significantly for people who have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, or prediabetes.
My goal for this email series is to help people explore the facts about diabetes so that they can make more well-informed choices when it comes to their health and wellness.

Diabetes and the Body
During this email series, I’ll be explaining how diabetes affects the body, and offering research-based recommendations about you can keep yourself as healthy and happy as possible despite your diagnosis.
From my professional and personal experience, I know that it can be difficult for people to wrap their heads around medical terms and conditions due to fear and general misunderstanding. My hope is that by providing a basic overview of the chemical imbalances that cause diabetes and offering a source of additional support via email correspondence, I’ll be able to help others on their journey toward better health.
With rates of diabetes running as high as they are, it’s quite likely that someone you love will develop it, or already has. The best thing you can do is to educate yourself about the risks and ways to reduce them.
