The youth in America are suffering from obesity and diabetes, it’s worse than what medical experts earlier have thought. Obesity rates in children is climbing as is Type 2 diabetes!
The disease progresses more rapidly in children than in adults and is more difficutl to treat.
A study with 699 children between the ages of 10 – 17 was done during a period of 4 years. Researches were shocked at how poorly the oral drugs performed on these children compared to how they perfom on adults.
Results of the study can be read here: The New England Journal of Medicine.
I somehow feel enraged when reading this! What is happening out there? What part of this do people not understand! What is the (simple) cause, and what (simple) measures can we do to avoid Type 2 diabetes from staying on the increase?
Type 2 diabetes in children is increasing and creeping down in the ages, there are chilrden that are getting Type 2 diabetes, and they are 10 year olds???
The way too high carbohydrate and low fat diets has been going on for too long! And the diabetic children are given the same diet to eat! No wonder it’s impossible to control their blood sugar levels.
Type 2 diabetes is only reversable with low carb eating and increasing the intake of fats (not margarines). Due to the crazy fear of fat, the high carb eating industry has exploded instead, at the same pace, Type 2 diabetes is also exploding!
Let’s make a change!
