Diabetes is a MAJOR epidemic in the US. At this rate, it will actually bankrupt our health care system regardless of what plan you are in favor of. Here is the crazy thing! 6 Million people are walking around with type 2 diabetes and have no idea. It is preventable and curable!
Here is an easy formula that will help you monitor your risk level:
Measure your waist (at your belly button). If it is more than half of your height then you have too much belly fat and are at risk of Type II diabetes.
Please get yourself tested. If you know you have diabetes, then you can start doing something about it. It is that simple.
I cruised over to Walgreen’s last week after watching the Oprah that sparked this blog. Happy to say I am okay—-that’s actually my finger right after the Blood Glucose Test.
