The Diabetes Epidemic – 438 Million May Suffer From Diabetes By 2030

Yes folks, it’s true.  Diabetes certainly is an epidemic!  It’s estimated that as many as 438 million people may suffer from diabetes by the year 2030.  If you want to get an idea of how many people that actually is, then consider this – it’s more than the populations of the US and the UK combined!

The sad truth is that diabetes is almost 100% preventable. The leading cause of Type 2 diabetes is lifestyle.  This means that Type 2 diabetes is a disease that you do not have to ever get.  It’s one of the very few (if only) diseases that you can actually choose not to get.  If you eat right, exercise, and control the stress in your life, chances are you will never get Type 2 diabetes.

If you are like me and you choose to ignore your doctor’s advice, consume copious amounts of sugar and foods loaded with high fructose corn syrup and other nasty ingredients, then you will end up just like me- diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at age 40.  DO NOT let this happen to you!  No matter what age you are, you must start eating right and exercising NOW.  I can’t stress how important this is.

Take a look at this infographic below.  These statistics should shock you.

 

About Christopher Mollo

I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes at 39-years old. My grandmother was a diabetic and my father is also diabetic, so it obviously runs in the family. I started this blog to share my personal journey and my battle with diabetes. I hope to provide some valuable tips and insights for others suffering from diabetes. I'm here to tell you that diabetes doesn't have to slow you down, and it doesn't have to shorten or reduce the quality of your life. Please join me so we can all share our stories together!
