Revised 04/2011 DIABETES EPIDEMIC and YOU is not a clich! It is a mandate for the awakening of the "silent" millions worldwide with "normal" fasting blood sugars and undiagnosed diabetes. If you have a "normal" fasting blood sugar, YOU may be one of the undiagnosed millions. YES, I do mean YOU. Since Hippocrates' time, earliest diagnosis provided the greatest opportunity for treatment and cure. This book highlights the earliest identification of type 2 diabetes by utilizing the insulin assay with the oral glucose tolerance. My cumulative experience of 14,384 oral glucose tolerances with insulin assays established the earliest diagnosis of prediabetes and diabetes when the blood sugars were normal. Prediabetes is type 2 diabetes. The tolerances were separated according to age groups, from 313 years to 8190+ years. Each group was further divided into normal glucose tolerances, impaired glucose tolerances, and diabetes mellitus glucose tolerances. YOU, upon testing by oral glucose tolerance, will be in one of these categories. This resource of oral glucose tolerance with insulin assay is unequaled in world medical literature. The importance of early diagnosis is that the clinical pathology of diabetes mainly heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, cataracts, erectile dysfunction, and other metabolic disorders occurs not only in those with advanced diabetes, but also in those with "normal" blood sugars. YES, this could happen to YOU! When early diagnosis is coupled with specific therapy, the DIABETES EPIDEMIC will be arrested and then reversed. Early diagnosis is the goal of this book beginning with YOU.

Diabetes Mellitus is a disease in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin, a hormone that helps the body’s tissues absorb glucose (sugar) so it can be used as a source of energy. The condition may also develop if muscle, fat, and liver cells respond poorly to insulin. In people with diabetes, glucose levels build up in the blood and urine, causing excessive urination, thirst, hunger, and problems with fat and protein metabolism. Diabetes mellitus differs from the less common diabetes insipidus, which is caused by lack of the hormone vasopressin that controls the amount of urine secreted.

A candid, provocative, and moving account of one of America’s fastest-growing health issues If you or someone you love has diabetes, you are not alone — more than twenty million Americans now live with the disease. In Cheating Destiny, the best-selling author James S. Hirsch offers an incisive, sometimes surprising portrait of diabetes in America. Hirsch is intimately familiar with the disease: he has lived with type 1 diabetes for three decades. His brother, Irl, also a diabetic, is one of the country’s leading diabetologists. Most poignantly, his son Garrett was diagnosed at age three. Hirsch draws on his unique expertise to provide an engaging blend of reportage, memoir, history, and advocacy. He offers revealing views of life with diabetes: the urge toward secrecy that many diabetics feel, the everyday psychological and emotional hurdles, and the perseverance — even heroism — required for survival. Hirsch takes a look at the science behind the disease and its treatment, and lays bare the impact on our economy, society, and our families. Anyone who lives with diabetes — or loves a diabetic — will find this book essential reading.

I'm a practicing cardiologist, and I'm passionate about prevention. As a society we have a serious job to do: defeating the obesity-diabetes-artery disease epidemic. I want to see the rates of obesity and diabetes down to the levels they were 50 years ago. To achieve this, we cannot simply rely on doctors and nurses, hospitals and universities. Me and you and all of us in the community need to fight against sugars and prolonged sitting, have a zero-tolerance policy for high blood pressure, high LDL, and smoking, and learn what gives this epidemic strength and what its weak points are. We must band together and fight the enemy in our schools, our workplaces, and our homes, day in and day out.

Diabetes The Real Cause and The Right Cure

Diabetes  The Real Cause and The Right Cure

If you have Type 2 diabetes, this book is a life changer!

If you have Type 2 diabetes, this book is a life changer! Whether you were recently diagnosed or have had Type 2 diabetes for years, this book will open your eyes to new thinking about the real cause and an actual cure based on scientific thinking. If you think that diabetes is your destiny because it is in your family, this book will show you that this thinking is not true. The fact is, you can reverse high blood sugar and diabetes in as little as 8 weeks using the 8 steps in this book. “Health professionals are misleading patients about the true cause of diabetes,” says Dr. John Poothullil. “The problem has become so severe that diabetes is now a national and international epidemic." Diabetes affects more than 23 million people in the US. Most diabetics are treated with medications or insulin injections to “control” their diabetes, yet they still develop many complications from the condition. 1 in every 4 adults over age 65 has diabetes. Diabetes is considered to be the 3rd leading cause of death in the US. Based on more than 20 years of research into the scientific literature on diabetes, Dr. John proves that diabetes cannot be caused by insulin resistance as is commonly thought. Rather, it is caused by the constant consumption of grains – including wheat, barley, rice, oats, corn, and products made with the flour of these grains. When people excessively consume grains, it fills their fat cells and eventually forces a normal body metabolism to go haywire, leaving glucose in the bloodstream. This causes high blood sugar—and when it continues for a long period of time, it results in diabetes. Dr. John's explanation makes far more sense than insulin resistance. It explains why diabetes is spreading in nations as different as China, India, England, and the US --because in all these countries grain is a major portion of the diet. It explains why younger and younger adults, even teenagers, are developing diabetes, given their diets of pizza, sandwiches, snack foods, cakes, muffins, doughnuts and so many products that contain grain flour. It also explains why some pregnant women get gestational diabetes and shed it within days after giving birth. Understanding Dr. John's explanation for the cause of diabetes opens the door to reversing it. The book provides an easy to implement 8 step program that will truly your lower blood sugar for good.

More than a program for living with diabetes, here is a groundbreaking approach to preventing, treating, and even reversing an American epidemic, based on the science of the doctor who invented the low-carb lifestyle and wrote the #1 New York Times bestseller Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution featuring the Atkins Nutritional Approach™— a celebrity-favorite diet perfect for losing weight before your wedding or to bounce back into shape post-baby, or if you just want to look and feel your best. The statistics are staggering. Thirteen million Americans have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes; another 5.2 million don't know that they have it. During the past thirty years the diabetes rate has tripled, and each year about 200,000 people die from complications of the disease. The Centers for Disease Control project that one out of every three children born in the year 2000 will develop the disease. But Type 2 diabetes is largely preventable. Find out how you can avoid becoming a statistic. As a respected physician and pioneer in the field of complementary medicine, Dr. Robert C. Atkins recognized early on that diabetes and obesity are twin epidemics, and that the way to reverse both is to permanently change the way people eat. Yet much of the mainstream medical establishment continues to advocate the treatment of diabetes with insulin and other drugs, while recommending a diet high in carbohydrates including sugar, which raises your blood sugar. What you'll learn from reading Atkins Diabetes Revolution is that rather than correcting your metabolism, such a diet can actually increase your risk of developing diabetes—and heart disease. The Atkins Blood Sugar Control Program (ABSCP) helps you identify the metabolic signposts that indicate trouble long before the onset of Type 2 diabetes so you can stop it in its tracks. If you already have the disease, the ABSCP offers you and your physician a strategy for weight management and blood-sugar control, while minimizing your exposure to drugs. Atkins Diabetes Revolution presents a comprehensive lifestyle program, including diet, exercise, and nutrient supplementation. The book also contains meal plans, recipes, a fitness routine, and case studies. This revolutionary book, a fitting tribute to Dr. Atkins, tackles one of the greatest health challenges you and your family may ever face.
