American health officials state that Type 2 diabetes and Americans are getting heavier every year.
Obesity, “pre-diabetes”, metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance are related conditions, if treated with diet, fitness and education could prevent full-blown Type 2 diabetes.
Those with pre-diabetes have 1 times greater likelihood of dying from cardiovascular disease and those with diabetes have a two to four times greater risk of dying because of heart disease. In fact, those with diabetes are at the same risk level as someone who has already suffered a heart attack.
Diabetes is and epidemic in the USA, with 18 million Americans having been diagnosed with diabetes and 41 million others having been diagnosed with a condition far more prevalent than diabetes itself — pre-diabetes.
