The WORST Age to Get Diabetes [BEAT the Odds]
Getting type 2 diabetes is bad enough.
But WHEN you get it could be even worse.
You see, having type 2 diabetes already predisposes you to an increased risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and early death.
But if you’re diagnosed with type 2 diabetes before a certain age, you could face a 5-fold increased risk of dying from heart disease—or any cause.
In an enormous study that compared more than 600,000 diabetics to more than 1.2 million non-diabetics for nearly 6 years, researchers made a shocking discovery.
People diagnosed with type 2 diabetes before 40 had a 5-fold increase in:
- All-cause mortality
- Cardiovascular mortality
- Hospitalization for heart failure
- Coronary heart disease
For each additional decade they had under their belt when they were diagnosed, the risk was reduced (although it was still significant compared to non-diabetics).
In other words, while being diagnosed with diabetes at ANY age increases your risk of developing heart disease and having an early death, the younger you’re given the bad news, the sooner your potential demise could be.
The numbers are alarming but not surprising.
The younger you are when you develop diabetes, the earlier the damage begins to your heart, brain, and every other part of your body that’s affected by excess blood sugar.
Your body is a remarkable machine, but it can only take so much neglect before it conks out.
You’re probably already on top of your blood sugar levels—but there’s a good chance the younger loved ones in your life don’t have this on their radar yet.
Encourage them to have their blood sugar tested regularly and make the necessary lifestyle changes to keep their glucose levels in a healthy range. The sooner, the better. Because as I explained in a recent report, prediabetes can progress to full-blown type 2 in the blink of an eye.
Send them to me if they need advice on how to do it.
And if your own diabetes isn’t under control, there’s no time like now to change that. You can start with spending as much time outdoors as possible, going barefoot more often, and eating foods provided by the land in their season.
Then focus on weight loss and lifestyle changes such as eating a higher protein, lower carb “caveman” style diet that emphasizes meat and vegetables and reduces (or eliminates) processed food. And commit to regular exercise.
The sooner you turn things around, the lower your heart risks will likely be.
P.S. Recent research revealed EXACTLY how much weight you need to lose to put your type 2 diabetes into remission. I’ve got all the details right here.
