Diabetes is a scourge of modern day living. Why are we not winning ?
This is a simple disease – type 2 that is perfectly PREVENTABLE and perfectly treatable and yet we are losing this battle left right and centre.
Dialysis, amputations, blindness abound and really should not.
WE have the tools but we do not have political will or the will of the people.
We live in an age where as humans we choose easy street time and time again. Easy street in eating, easy street in not exercising, easy street in unhealthy choices.
One hundred years ago we were skinny and ate half of what we do currently and guess what we had a almost nil type 2 problem. Fast forward to 2016 and the numbers are staggering (like a drunkard) – out of control.
For a disease that is preventable and treatable.
A sugar above 10 has an effect much like coke on the floor – everything becomes one sticky stuck together mess – that’s a poorly controlled diabetic’s body.
Keep your sugar below 10 and voila – no problems in fact, keep your sugar at target and you live longer than a non-diabetic !
Easy peasy lemon squeezy – but we are not doing it ?
I urge you to look after your body – the only one you have – check your sugar regularly -pick up diabetes early and treat it. Better still eat healthily and exercise and skip it. It is possible. It is really possible – however if you would rather just be fat and still – have some diabetes.
