Diabetes is a public health problem of epidemic proportions. More than 12% of U.S. adults have diabetes. Uncontrolled, diabetes can lead to complications from head to toe, including stroke, loss of vision, heart disease, kidney failure, and various problems due to nerve damage and circulatory problems, such as erectile dysfunction or lower-extremity amputation.
An even greater number of people have prediabetes. With prediabetes, blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Recent research has shown that some long-term damage to the body, especially the heart and circulatory system, may already be occurring during prediabetes. Fortunately, type 2 diabetes can be prevented, and complications can often be avoided or treated with a significant change in lifestyle.
The road to diabetes does not have to be a one-way street - there is hope! People who eat plant-based meals are less likely to ever develop diabetes and, for those who have diabetes, plant-based meals can help improve blood sugar levels and prevent complications! We'll cover all this and more during class!
