This is my goal and the goal of RestoredLifeNow.com: To help 1,000,000 people defeat diabetes! That sounds like a lot of people. Well, it is. This can be accomplished if we band together. I cannot make this happen by myself. Together we can transform a million lives for the better.
The problem is huge!
In the United States nearly half of all adults 20 and older are either a pre-diabetic or diabetic. That is over 115 million adults. Only about 10% of the 86+ million US adults with pre-diabetes know they have it. Pre-diabetes is not pre-dangerous. Pre-diabetics can suffer the same complications as diabetes. This problem is not limited to the U.S. It is truly a worldwide epidemic.
In 2012 the World Health Organization reported 347 million diabetics. A 2013 report from the International Diabetes Foundation estimates that there 382 million people around the world with diabetes. That does not include the pre-diabetics.
Most, 90-95% of diabetes is Type 2—the kind produced largely from lifestyle choices. The good news is that healthy choices will benefit both Type 1 and 2. Type 2 diabetics can, in most cases, obtain complete victory over this devastating disease. May doctors believe that Type1 one diabetics can eliminate the complications and greatly reduce their need for insulin.
What can you do to help transforms a million lives?
- Make healthy changes in our own lives. Even if you do not have the common risk factors. Your lives (life style) can encourage, instruct and inspire others.
- Encourage our friends, neighbors, loved ones and coworkers to go for screening. Especially if they are even a little over weight, carrying a little too much in the midsection or have a family history of diabetic problems.
- Learn all we can for ourselves. The more we know the more we can guide people toward solutions.
- Let them know that there is hope and help!!!!
- Share all the free resources available on the web. There are many blogs, podcasts, sites and videos that can help people beyond our own capacity and knowledge.
This is why I am developing these free resources. This blog, podcast, and community exist to help you and your loved ones defeat diabetes. Let’s build this community together and defeat diabetes one life at a time.
Be sure to sing up for our newsletter, “Restoration Nation”, to stay informed and connected. Oh, and don’t forget to share our podcast and website.
