Learn How To Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

Updated on January 23, 2016

With Support Reversing Type 2 Diabetes Is Possible


Every year there is a Diabetes World Summit. Tell friends and family so everyone can get on board, work together and improve your total health as a family and community. The rest of this article will provide statistics and facts about North Carolina Pre-diabetes and diabetes.

The trend in North Carolina

North Carolina Is My Home

North Carolina may have blue skies, beautiful beaches and majestic mountains, but the people living in this state need help with education about proper nutrition, cleaning up the environment and health care. People have given away their personal power when they believe a pill will be the answer to disease, while they continue the trend of negative lifestyle and eating habits.

The graph depicts the increasing trend for obesity, which is directly correlated to Type 2 Diabetes.

The majority (90%-95%) of all people diagnosed with diabetes have type 2 diabetes, formerly known as non-insulin dependent or adult-onset diabetes. Diabetes can lead to serious and costly health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure. Overweight/obesity and being older are risk factors for diabetes, which may also lead to arthritis and cancer. The chart below indicates trends in North Carolina.

Obesity at Epidemic Levels

Total Prevalence of Diabetes

  • Total: 25.8 million children and adults in the United States—8.3% of the population—have diabetes.
  • Diagnosed: 18.8 million people
  • Undiagnosed: 7.0 million people
  • Prediabetes: 79 million people*
  • New Cases: 1.9 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in people aged 20 years and older in 2010.

Comparison Graph Of Disease Trends in NC

The numbers speak for themselves. With projections turning up the heat from the hundreds of thousands of heart disease going up past 2.5 million; persons suffering from arthritis projected to have a reduction in cases. Obesity related cancer more than doubling up to 362,984. That probably does not include cancer cases related to other causes.

A One-Hour PowerPoint Presentation

Getting Started To Learn About Diabetes

On April 21, 2014 I gave a live presentation for the public to learn about type 2 diabetes to realize the seriousness of this health issue. You may watch the PowerPoint, which was archived for those who missed the program.

Taking Care Of Your Teeth Is Directly Related To Heart Health and Diabetes

The Body Is A Complete System


IS THERE A CONNECTION BETWEEN STROKES AND DIABETES? Strokes run rampant in southern USA more than anywhere else in the country. Statistics show that people have a 15% higher stroke risk and the mortality is 30% - 40% higher. That's some pretty frightening information. But why? What is going on in that part of the country that puts southerners at such high risk for cardiovascular disease?

THE DATA IS IN ON SOME CAUSAL LINKS TO DIABETES AND THE ENVIRONMENT, MORE IS ALWAYS NEEDED: Researchers can investigate what links the region together to cause health problems. Although education is important, we can look at poverty, contaminated soils, water and atmosphere, rates of smoking, the over-abundance of pesticides, fungicides and insecticides in the agricultural regions and the poor food choices when providing for the family meals. One other criteria would be the amount of exercise people get these days and perhaps due to climate change a reduction in time people spend outside and the increase in insomnia rates. North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana are at risk.

OILS AND FATS HAVE DIFFERENT HEALTHY AND NON-HEALTHY PROPERTIES: Everyone can learn how to select healthy fats and oils, stop reusing old oils for deep frying and increase their greens. Consider the down home cooking Southern Recipes filled with heavy cream and bacon grease. Rich, high seasoned, fried chicken, fried fish, fried corn, fried okra, cajun cooking, sweet potato pie fried in hydrogenated oils, that could be sitting in pots for weeks to months create dangerous chemicals.

Remove Empty Calories and Sugary Drinks From The Diet

WE CAN PREVENT DIABETES WITH OUR CHOICES | Researchers followed 91,249 women who did not have diabetes or any other chronic disease in 1991. In the following eight years 51,603 women gained significant weight and 741 went on to develop type II diabetes.

Those who drank at least one sugar-sweetened drink a day were nearly twice as likely to develop diabetes than someone who didn't consume any of the drinks.

      They say there is no minimum daily requirement for refined sugar. Still I was startled by that sweet tea graphic. Got to remember to avoid sweet tea!

      Avoiding corn fructose is also a good idea.

      Hi Lady Guinevere -So happy to hear you have awareness of your body's response. Sounds like you have lots of information on controlling your insulin levels and will do well. It's easy to believe that pills and drugs will take care of diabetes. But, the seriousness of this condition and downward spiral requires responsible action for everything we put in our mouths and our lifestyle choices. It's also not up to us to control other people, especially our loved ones. Only they can have that light bulb turn on in their heads and start to take action to improve. It's hard choices. Blessings, Debby

      I am borderline and I know when I feel too much sugar in my bloodstream.

      My mother is type 2 diabetes and she doesn't curb anytning because she thinks her shots are a cure all or something like that. She drinks diet sodas, which is worse for you than taking in the regular sodas. She also drinks lots of cow's milk, which is way bad for you as well. I cannot convince her of anything. She gets really mean if I say a thing about her health.
