United States and Global Diabetes Population
The number of Americans with diabetes continues to increase, according to CDC's most recent National Diabetes Fact Sheet. Every 17 seconds someone in the United State is diagnosed with diabetes. So does the number of Americans with prediabetes, a condition that increases their risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, foot complications or Neuropathy, eye complications, skin complications, depression and gingivitis disease or tooth and bone loss.In the US, 9.3% of the population has Type II diabetes.  This represents about 29.1 million people.  An additional 114 million people have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes (29% of the US population).  In 2012, 1.9 million new cases of diabetes were diagnosed in people aged 20 years and older. Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of the death in the United States. States with the largest increases over the 16-year period were Oklahoma, up 226 percent; Kentucky, up 158 percent; Georgia, up 145 percent; Alabama, up 140 percent, Washington, up 135 percent, and West Virginia, up 131 percent, according to the study published in CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

It is estimated that 382 million people in the world have diabetes, making it the 5th leading cause of death worldwide. Among countries with the largest incidence of diabetes, China is the leader, and the South Pacific island country of Nauru is 30% diabetic.
  • On average. a person is newly diagnosed with diabetes every 17 seconds.
  • Diabetes kills more people each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined.
While drugs can be used to treat the symptoms of diabetes, there is an all-natural protocol to better treat the disease for improved overall health.  If you think you might be at risk for this disease, or have already been diagnosed with diabetes, American Diabetes Advocates can help.

Medical Warning: Dangerous Diabetes Drugs Don't Work, they ONLY treat the SYMPTOMS...
According to a recent study the latest "magic bullet" drug therapy for diabetes and heart disease does not come close to working as advertised. In fact, researchers found that the combination of the high blood pressure drug Diovan (valsartan) and the anti-diabetes drug Starlix (nateglinide) failed to reduce the risk of heart attack at all and Diovan was only slightly successful in slowing the development of type II diabetes. Lead researcher Robert M Califf from Duke University School of Medicine stated: "This is a sobering confirmation of the need to continue to focus on lifestyle improvements."

In the study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers found that when compared to a placebo, valsartan and nateglinide failed to statistically reduce the incidence of either extended cardiovascular risk or core cardiovascular risk. The cumulative incidence of diabetes was 33.1% in the valsartan group, as compared with 36.8% in the placebo group.
