According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 24 million Americans have DM, and about 6 millions of them are not aware that they are diabetics. By the time when they are diagnosed with DM for abnormal blood glucose tests, they have likely had other ongoing pathological changes inside their bodies such as cataracts, retinopathy, arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis, hypertension, coronary heart disease and stroke, arthritis and fibromyalgia (fibromyositis), cancer(s), even neurodegenerative changes such as Alzheimer’s disease, just to name a few.
DM only represents a stage of a disease, daily repeated hyperglycemia, when about 50% of the pancreatic beta cells are destroyed by inflammation, which is a result of excessive consumption of carbohydrates. The pathological changes are progressive and accumulative, unless the individual mindfully reduces the consumption of carbohydrates. Thus, simply waiting for a diagnosis with DM has no value in preventive medicine, is passive and unacceptable.
For preventing and managing DM, I need your help by doing the followings. Please view my videos and understand why DM is not necessarily a genetic disease. Visit your group(s) frequently or join them at Talk Medical, The Diabetic Challenge, and Onco'Zone. Also follow my weekly blogs at “What’s New, Doc?” Lastly, please forward my message to your family members and friends on your network.
Let us join together in removing DM and many other diseases from our life! Thank you.
DM and preDM stages might help us to give grip over,pancreatic birth to its malfunctioning is to be established. the conditions in which hormones produced and testing why and when functioning stop at cellular level.I am ready to join the war against the disease.
With my literature review, DM is just a milestone during the course of the reducing pancreatic beta-cell masses by the repeated assaults of inflammation, which is promoted by repeated postprandial hyperglycemia. Everyone who consumes carbohydrates high in glycemic indices and glycemic loads are susceptible. Without serial blood glucose monitoring for two hours or longer for the period between preprandial and postprandial, conducted at least semiannually or annually, the individual is a sitting on a timed bomb. By the time when he is diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, 40-60% of his pancreatic beta-cell masses are damaged or died. This is the most important reason that I am urging everyone to have the serial blood glucose tests.
