Women With High-Risk Pregnancies Are More Likely to Develop Heart Disease

NPR reports that a woman with a high risk pregnancy is more likely to develop heart disease. This disheartening news does not only apply to pregnant women who are diabetic. Mothers who gave birth to premature and small babies were also found to be at risk. 
To make matters worse, doctors are generally not aware of this increased risk and fail to properly caution their patients. This is unfortunate because both heart disease and diabetes are conditions that can be addressed. Lowering your risk during pregnancy and reducing the long-term danger of heart disease are just two reasons to confront diabetes with a comprehensive and holistic approach to healing. 

Recent research shows life expectancy has declined in the U.S. for the first time in two decades and type 2 diabetes is a factor in this frightening decline. Most of my paternal relatives, my dad included, have, or have died from, diabetes. My personal experience with diabetes and subsequent review of the literature made it very clear to me that virtually every case of type 2 diabetes is reversible — and the cure has nothing to do with giving insulin or taking drugs to control your blood sugar.

In fact, giving insulin to someone with type 2 diabetes is one of the worst things that can be done. The truth of the matter is that type 2 diabetes is a preventable condition that arises from faulty leptin signaling and insulin resistance, both of which are directly diet- and exercise-related. It is NOT a blood sugar disorder. 

To reverse diabetes, you need to recover your body's insulin and leptin sensitivities, and the only way to accomplish that is through proper diet and exercise, as detailed in my free nutrition plan. The nourishing diet of whole foods it outlines also has the potential to be extremely beneficial to your heart health.
