									With obesity levels being at an all time high, the epidemic of type 2 diabetes is growing at an
alarming rate, and will only get worse. Between 2001 and 2002, the diagnosis of diabetes went
from 5.5 percent of Americans to an alarming 6.5 percent. In just one year! Overall, twelve
million Americans have been diagnosed and another 5 million Americans have diabetes and
don’t know it. And yet another 12 millions are on their way to type 2 diabetes because of
impaired glucose levels.

Diabetes Epidemic
Not knowing is the worst because risks of untreated diabetes puts us at a terrible risk of
complications including but not limited to blindness, amputations and ultimately death. The
stickler is, that type 2 diabetes is almost completely preventable. Doctor’s say eat less, eat better
and exercise. The numbers show just how many Americans are currently overweight.

Statistically, people are now living longer, and it has been on the rise for years. But this will not
continue if type 2 diabetes is not put under control. We are a gluttonous society and ultimately it
is affecting how we live and how long we live. And unfortunately, the diabetes epidemic is not
just a US problem. It is spreading worldwide with epidemic reports in Asia, the Middle East and
the Caribbean.

between the ages of 40 and 59.
