Are there other diseases related to diabetes? Yes. Diabetes brothers and sisters would be Heart disease aka Cardiovascular Disease, Heart Attacks, Stroke, Arthritis, Gout, Psoriasis and more.
According to the The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases those with diabetes are twice as likely to have heart disease or stroke than a non diabetic.
What they don’t tell you about diseases related to diabetes is their causes may be similar to what caused your type 2 diabetes. This should underscore our need to look at what we were doing wrong in our pre-diabetes lifestyles.
To me, just looking at the rash of juvenile type 2 diabetes today can give us some of our solutions. Our children are less active due to video games, computers and television than in previous decades. They eat more junk food and have sodas available to them at school and home. They usually drink very little water. What water they drink is polluted with chlorine and fluoride.
Their foods are not whole foods. They are not eating a lot of raw fruits and vegetables. They eat a lot of fried and processed foods. The snacks they do eat are saturated with table salt, preservatives and too much sugar. Our children and grandchildren consume much more sugar than any prior generation.
In addition to contracting type 2 diabetes, 30 years too early, they may get other diseases related to diabetes too soon, as well. A 70 year old is not too surprised to get all these problems due to their age. To me, it is a crying shame to see children suffering with diseases meant for older people who are more ready to die.
