Whereas Diabetes is a chronic disease in the United States with 18.8 million people diagnosed with the disease, 7 million people with undiagnosed Diabetes, and 78 million people with Prediabetes;
And, whereas the total cost for Diabetes in the United States was estimated to be $218 Billion in 2007;
And, whereas in many cases Type 2 Diabetes can be controlled and managed once diagnosed;
And, whereas those who have Prediabetes do not have to get Diabetes – the condition can be reversed;
I am declaring war on Diabetes. A take no prisoners approach to eradicating Diabetes in the US and the World. To remove it from the list of ‘chronic’ diseases through education, encouragement, the creation of programs, and detecting and treating Prediabetes early. To accomplish this I will use any tool that works to elevate public awareness and to treat the entire person so they thrive in their lives.
Join me in the battle.
