Accelerated aging of vital organs, as well as higher risk for heart disease and stroke, these are all things diabetics can experience.
“Are you seeing a big spike in your client base, or your customers?” Bruce asks Dr. J. “We’ve heard about this…for the past few years about how (diabetes is) becoming an epidemic.”
Dr. J. says there has been a slow, steady increase in the number of people diagnosed with diabetes.
“The numbers certainly are huge and (are) getting larger all the time,” says Dr. J. “Unless something really changes (the youth in the generation right now) are headed for diabetes, which will come at an earlier age and will come at a much higher frequency.”
The main culprit behind the increase, according to Dr. J., is all of the time spent sitting and staring at a screen.
“That sedentary lifestyle is killing us, slowly, but surely,” says Dr. J.
Dr. J. says type 2 diabetes is now being diagnosed many years before it used to be.
“Typically where diabetes used to (be diagnosed) in (peoples) 50s or 60s, now (people) are being (diagnosed in their) 30s or 40s,” says Dr. J.
There are also youth under the age of 20 being diagnosed. This was “almost unheard of thirty, or forty years ago,” adds Dr. J.
