Top 1 Indicator you may be at high risk for diabetes today:
Diabetes is the leading cause of , blindness, contributor to stroke, cardiac dysfunction, and kidney disease/failure in the USA. Recent scientific studies support the fact that it is also a lifestyle metabolic disease today: deadly and sneaky: and linked with many factors to include familial. Well; blood follows vein; and epigenetics strongly indicate that the gene of diabetes could run in your bloodline therefore, it is important to educate yourself by staying aware with scientific research that promotes awareness. Though your loaded gentic gun predisposes you to metabolic diseases such as diabetes; you are at no time compelled to pull the trigger.
In a recent publication “BMI and mortality: the limits of epidemiological evidence”
The US National Library of Medicine; National Institute of Medicine recorded 239 studies conducted in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and North America: On these 4 continents, over 10. 6 million participants in varying population groups were studied to establish whether there is a link between obesity and BMI to increase in the rates of morbidity.
“ Of 10 625 411 participants in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Europe, and North America from 239 prospective studies; 3 951 455 people in 189 studies between age 35–49, and 70–89, of dual sex, non-smokers without chronic diseases, having a relative BMI 22·5–<25·0 kg/m to establish validity of how high range and grade of BMI increase mortality rates are approximated with log-linearly.
All-cause mortality incidence were minimal in participants with BMI levels 20·0–<25·0 kg/m2 and increased significantly at 25•0 kg/m2 and above increased risk of mortality and as BMI increase above 25·0 kg/m2; mortality rates increase with log-linearly. The study also revealed that the BMI consistent with increased mortality rates among North Americans was significantly higher in the younger population and greater in older men than older women.
‘The association of both overweight and obesity with higher all-cause mortality rates were broadly consistent in all four continents. This finding supports strategies to combat the entire spectrum of excess adiposity in many populations”. Berrigan, et al (2016)
So if you have a continuous history of a body mass index (BMI) 25•0 kg/m2 or (23.0 kg/m2 for Asian-Americans; It is time to take immediate health modifying actions.
