The Diabetes Risk NOBODY is Talking About
There are millions of folks living with diabetes right now – and mainstream doctors do a TERRIBLE job educating them about the disease.
Most diabetics I talk to know that they have to watch their blood sugar… they even know about the risk of amputations.
But a new survey revealed that almost 50% of people with diabetes aren’t aware of some of the scariest, deadliest complications.
And these are complications that could wreck… or even end… your life.
Here’s the unfortunate reality: Having diabetes increases your risk of dementia by two- to three-fold.
Dementia! That’s the brain-robbing disease that slowly but surely steals your speech, your ability to reason, your memories, your independence… all the things that make you you.
In an ironic catch-22, having dementia then makes it more difficult for you to properly manage your diabetes, leading to even more complications!
And if that’s not enough, another study revealed an even deadlier connection.
If you’re under 50 and you have diabetes, you have a…
- 7 times higher risk of dying from sudden cardiac arrest
- 8 times higher risk of dying from any kind of heart disease
Unlike a heart attack, which occurs when blood flow to the heart is cut off, a sudden cardiac arrest occurs when there’s an electrical malfunction that causes the heart to stop beating.
It occurs without warning, and less that 10% live to tell about it.
As these two recent studies highlighted, diabetes is a major risk factor for dementia and heart disease… but the good news is that diabetes is 100% preventable!
Simple diet and environment fixes – eating more whole, organic foods, being more active, staying at a healthy weight, sand pending time in the sun – are PROVEN ways to make sure you NEVER have to give diabetes a second thought.
And there are natural supplements like berberine and chromium that can work wonders when it comes to helping you manage your blood sugar.
To a brighter day,

When it comes to surviving cancer, the earlier you discover cancer, the better the prognosis. That’s why cancer screening tests are so important.

Dementia is spreading like an epidemic in America. Some people will tell you that it’s caused by your faulty genetics.
