Numbers of Diagnosed Diabetics Jump

We simply can’t escape the sad diabetes news. Now, we’re discovering that the number of diagnosed diabetics jumped a whopping  41 % between 1997 and 2003, according to investigators from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

While it’s unclear whether the huge increase has to do with changing diagnostic criteria or increased detection, the upswing in obesity certainly plays a role.

The incidence of diabetes rose from 4.9 to 6.9 per 1000 people aged 18 to 79, pointed out Dr. Linda S. Geiss, who is quoted In Diabetes Today, which got its story from Reuters Health.

But, as members of the medical community repeatedly harp, research shows that you can delay or even prevent diabetes by exercising more and losing weight. And one way to trim your tummy is to break away from your dependence on sweets and refined carbs.For help to get out from under your quickie-carbs habit and shed unwanted pounds, join my free online KickSugar support group.

  1. “But, as members of the medical community repeatedly harp, research shows that you can delay or even prevent diabetes by exercising more and losing weight. …”
    That’s right, Connie–they keep harping–but on the wrong things–it’s the high-fructose corn syrup, white sugar, refined carbohydrates, trans-fats, MSG, and all those other industrial “food additives” that are causing metabolic and hormone breakdowns in people, thus leading to SUGARSHOCK, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, to name a few.
    What’s it going to take?

  2. Did I dream this, or did I hear that statistics are indicating that 1 out of 2 babies born this decade will eventually develop some form of diabetes?
    If anybody needs convincing to end the ravages of refined sugar, I think this would settle it right there.
    Not only are we hurting ourselves but we are hurting those we love the most. Diabetes is not what I had in mind to leave my kids as a heritage.

  3. I think this is the thing that scared me the most was the thought of getting diabetes!
    Guess you could say I was scared “straight” into omitting the foods that are addictive to me — sweets and refined carbs.
    What a difference I feel already just by taking these foods out of my diet! I feel so much more in control and no inside shakes and weakness for a couple of weeks now! Yahoo!
    I’m really glad to hear they are slowly “learning up the schools” in the U.S. — that’s slang for educating and teaching the school system. They’re starting this in the BC Canadian schools too! Hallejuah!!!
    Hope this trend continues all over the world!!
