Diabetes is the seventh most prevalent cause of death in America. Type 1 and 2 diabetes present with excessively high blood sugar, but the cause, development, and progression are different.
Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes is often diagnosed when you’re a child and isn’t associated with obesity. When diagnosed, people with type 1 diabetes often have higher ketone levels and the disease cannot be controlled without insulin. This type of diabetes is an autoimmune disease, causing the body’s immune system to attack your insulin-producing beta cells. The cause of this mistaken attack is unknown, and there is no cure. … Read more “What is Diabetes? Type I and Type II…know the facts”
Sadly, there’s no magic pill, potion, or ritual that can protect you from having a heart attack. But there are things you can do to lower your risk of heart attack. Taking control of your health by engaging in preventative healthcare is the best way to optimize your physical condition and significantly reduce the risk of having a heart attack. Even if you’ve already had a heart attack, it’s not too late to make the necessary changes to stave off a second heart attack and potentially save your life. Remember, 48% of premature deaths in America are preventable – and
It’s not possible for everyone, though, and there’s no guarantees. And, of course, if you’re born with Type I diabetes, you can’t – it’s part of you and it’s beyond your control.

The changes necessary to reverse and prevent diabetes (Type II) are basically the same, so why would you wait until you develop this life-threatening, complex health problem before you initiate those changes? Because:
In 15 years’ time, we will be able to add 30 healthy years to our lifespan
A future 60-year old?
Fresh from attending three conferences for insiders on longevity and speaking to some of the movement’s leaders, it is stunning to realize what tools we have available now and what is just around the corner.
Here is a limited selection of what is already here and what we can expect.

Type 2 Diabetes is a serious condition that impacts millions of Americans. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) of the 30 million Americans with diabetes, 90-95% of the 30 million Americans with diabetes have Type 2.

The healthcare system in the US is broken. Despite having some of the best doctors, surgeons, and treatments in the world, vast groups of society suffer from easily preventable diseases and rely on emergency care, which often leads to high costs and personal bankruptcy. We have a significant debate on who is responsible for paying for healthcare, the role of insurance and more. That debate will rage on for a while. But in the meantime, we should try to fix as much as we can with resources available today.
The US healthcare system doesn’t work when it comes to getting
Preventative healthcare is so important to our long term wellbeing. Did you know that 60 percent of Americans have chronic diseases? And many of those are preventable.

There are also barriers to preventative healthcare.
Healthcare professionals who specialize in preventative care aren’t always easy to find
The best doctors, the best treatments, and the best healthcare facilities in the world, and yet the modern healthcare system in US is still broken. Because of the issues within the healthcare system, many people don’t receive the right care at the right time. One of the biggest problems with modern healthcare is that there simply isn’t enough focus on preventative healthcare. You’ve heard the old adage, prevention is better than cure, right? Nowhere is this more accurate than medicine, but today, our healthcare system is geared toward reactive sickcare and we’re pre-disposed to think that way, too – we
