Diabetes – The Silent Killer



“The Silent Killer”

. . . Over 300 Million cases globally!
Over 17 million Americans have diabetes with another million being diagnosed every year! If you find those numbers alarming, you’re in good company.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the fast growing numbers of people diagnosed with diabetes is attributed to obesity and lack of exercise especially among people in their 30s. But, what is even scarier is that experts say that is probably not an accurate estimate and in fact the numbers could be much higher.

Diabetes is a very insidious disease. Medical experts call diabetes the “stealth” disease because some people can have the disease for years, sometimes decades, before the condition becomes obvious.

In fact, the numbers listed above could very well be a miscalculation. Why is that? It is very common for diabetes to flourish undetected for as much as 12 years before diagnosis.

The onset of symptoms can be very gradual. Sadly, some people are not diagnosed in time and suffer from the effects such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Amputations
  • Kidney disease
  • Loss of sight and blindness

According to research, over 290,000 of those people are the result of consequences of diabetes statistically each year in the USA!

Based on this information, doesn’t it stand to reason that we need to start an all out war against this killer? You are absolutely correct AND the first battle of that war begins with YOU!

The medical community is in no shape to do it for you. Just turn to your local news and you can see what a shamble our health care system is in.

We lose more and more qualified medical professionals every day because of the “business” of health care. You need to be in control of your health and that of your loved ones.

The first step is education. You need to get the answers to learn this and more:

  • Diabetes is A Global Epidemic

Your WEIGHT ( 300 pounds ) multiply by 14. = ( 4,200 calories ) That will get you your TOTAL MAINTENANCE CALORIES.

Your MAINTENANCE CALORIE multiply by .25
4,200 calories x .25 = 1,050


Your MAINTENANCE CALORIE 4,200 subtract 1,050 = 3,150 calories.
