American Diabetes Advocates (ADA) has only one mission, advocacy. We fight for people with diabetes in your local city and in state capitols and in our courts. The number of Americans with diabetes continues to increase, according to CDC's most recent National Diabetes Fact Sheet. 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. American Diabetes Advocates is dedicated to changing the impact of diabetes - how doctors treat diabetes, how diabetics understand their disease, how it is viewed around the world, and how the future of this disease plays out. Most diabetes patients still do not understand or appreciate the degree to which diabetes affects one's health or how many complications are connected with the illness. Compared to the general population, people living with diabetes have death rates from heart disease and stroke that are two to four times higher.  Deaths from heart disease in women with diabetes have increased 23% over the past 30 years, compared to a 27% decrease in women without diabetes.

ADA aims to combat the diabetes epidemic by:

  • Improving access to health cares and eliminates discrimination against people with diabetes.
  • Increasing awareness to prevention, treatment , remission of type 2 diabetes and cure diabetes
  • Helping reduce or eliminate your diabetic medications - permanently - including insulin!
  • Helping return your metabolic levels such as A1C levels to NORMAL within 90 days!
  • Improving your health and the increased quality of your life within 21 days!

The Truth about Type II Diabetes Desease10 Reasons Why You Should Rethink Your Diabetes Treatment

Type 2 diabetes mellitus is characterized by 6 major metabolic abnormalities(1) Pancreas Dysfunction, (2) Insulin Resistance, (3) Small Bowel Hormonal Imbalance, (4) Liver Dysfunction, (5) Gut and (6) Doctors.

United States and Global Diabetes Population

In the US, 9.4% of the population has Type II diabetes.  This represents about 30.3 million people.  An additional 114 million people have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes (29% of the US population).  In 2015, 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 422 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. The IDF expects that number to rise to 592 million by 2035, when one in every 10 people will have the disease.

  • On average. a person is newly diagnosed with diabetes every 17 seconds.
  • Diabetes kills more people each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined.
  • Diabetes kills 1 person every 6 seconds, with cases expected to rise 55%.

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. 

Financial costs of diabetes: The CDC estimates the cost of diabetes iii the U.S. was $194 billion in 2011 and will increase to more than $250 billion in 2014. This is unsustainable, with many predictions that the epidemic will impact one out of three Americans by mid-century. Diabetes treatment, including medications and monitoring supplies, costs each patient about $11,700 annually. If he or she develops one diabetic complication, such as retinopathy, the individual cost rises to an average of $20,700 per year.  The U.S. in the coming decades, diabetes care will place a major burden on the economy.

HOMA-IR Calculator - The Homeostasis Model Assessment (HOMA) estimates steady state beta cell function (%B) and insulin sensitivity (%S), as percentages of a normal reference population. These measures correspond well, but are not necessarily equivalent, to non-steady state estimates of beta cell function and insulin sensitivity derived from stimulatory models such as the hyperinsulinaemic clamp, the hyperglycaemic clamp, the intravenous glucose tolerance test (acute insulin response, minimal model), and the oral glucose tolerance test (0-30 delta I/G).
