Diabetes to Double by 2030

Diabetes rates will double worldwide by 2030, to 366 million people with the disease, even if the obesity rate remains stable, said an international team of researchers. But, if more people become overweight, the rate will rise even more. What is not mentioned here is that more people are also becoming pre-diabetic, which is characterized by obesity, especially around the abdomen, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and high blood sugars. This puts even more people at an increased risk of diabetes. But if you fall into this category don't give up and think there is nothing you can do. As I have been saying for years, diabetes can be prevented and even reversed with diet and exercise.
