Diabetes is a silent stalker, and if you’re over 40, overweight, and inactive, you’re a prime target. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 25 million people in the United States have diabetes. And one-quarter of them don’t even know they have the disease.
What many people don’t realize is that diabetes significantly raises heart disease risk. In fact, people with diabetes are two to four times more likely to die from heart disease or suffer a stroke than those with normal blood sugar levels.
So, what are doctors doing about this epidemic? They’re wearing out their prescription pads with Rx’s for diabetes and heart medications. Meanwhile, they pay half-hearted lip service to the importance of healthy eating and the right nutritional supplements. That way doctors can quickly turn their examination tables to make money on additional patients. It hardly needs to be pointed out that Big Pharma is making a fortune off the purchase of all those needless drugs.
Folks, if you really want to fight diabetes and heart disease the first most powerful weapon you have is to change your diet. That’s because the food choices you make have a profound effect on your blood glucose levels.
Since February is American Heart Month, I wanted to use this opportunity to get the word out about the importance of diet when it comes to diabetes management and your heart. To do that...
- I’ll be posting healthful recipes twice a week on my Facebook page. If you haven’t already “liked” my Facebook page, I encourage you to do that now.
- I also encourage you to share these recipes on your Facebook page to help to get the word out about diabetes and heart health.
- If at least 1,000 people share at least one of these healthful recipes on Facebook, there will be a special surprise gift at the end of the month. But the real gift is that by simply sharing a recipe, you’ll be helping everyone to lead healthier lives.
Please also share this blog post on your Facebook wall so we can get others to join in the effort, too! Then, keep checking back on my blog since I'll be sharing exciting news about nutritional supplements that can help you keep your blood sugar under control.
