America could be in serious trouble if we continue on the path we’re on now!
The number of diabetics in this country has DOUBLED in the past two decades according to a new study being published this week!
The research conducted also found a direct correlation between the spike in diabetes cases and the increase of obesity in the US. No surprise there…
In 20 years, the percentage of Americans with diabetes jumped from 5.5% to 9.3%.
Those are some staggering figures!
There might actually be a silver lining to these numbers though - technology has made it easier to detect symptoms of diabetes, earlier!
In 1988, about 16% of individuals who met the criteria for diabetes were not diagnosed by their doctor! That dropped down to 11% in 2010!
More than 20 million people now suffer from diabetes in the United States. But at the rate we’re going, experts expect that by 2034, we could see more than 44 million diabetics nationwide!
The time is now to get healthy, America!
