Get the facts about diabetes in the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet
Nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new estimates. Further, an estimated 79 million U.S. adults have prediabetes, a condition in which blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be considered diabetes. Prediabetes raises a person’s risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Diabetes affects 8.3 percent of all Americans, and 11.3 percent of adults aged 20 years and older, according to the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet. About 27 percent of those with diabetes – 7 million Americans – do not know they have the disease. Prediabetes affects 35 percent of adults aged 20 years and older.
Other data from the fact sheet:
• About 215,000 Americans younger than age 20 years have diabetes. Most diabetes among children and adolescents is type 1, which develops when the body can no longer make insulin, a hormone that controls the amount of blood glucose.
• An estimated 1.9 million Americans were diagnosed with diabetes in 2010.
• Racial and ethnic minorities continue to have higher rates of diabetes after adjusting for population age differences. For adults, diabetes rates were 16.1 percent for American Indians/Alaska Natives, 12.6 percent for blacks, 11.8 percent for Hispanics, 8.4 percent for Asian-Americans, and 7.1 percent for non-Hispanic whites.

It’s hard to believe another 365 days has almost come and gone. Whether you are making plans to lose weight, change your eating habits to be healthier, be a better person, start exercising more, stop smoking, or learn to live and enjoy life, you must understand that making resolutions are the hardest part. The key to a successful resolution begins with a lifestyle change and it must start with you believing you can.
We live in a time where we allow others to influence our decisions. It’s time for you to decide what your own expectations for your life are. You know how your friends and family seem to always want to give their input. The truth of the matter is that you have to decide how you want to proceed with your new lifestyle change. You must start out believing and seeing your outcome before embarking on your plan to lose those unwanted pounds, stop smoking or stop your food addiction.
When you’re planning ways to lose weight, which is usually the main resolution for change, a problem that seems to arise is that you didn’t plan for how to keep those unwanted pounds away. One of the key components of losing weight is to understand your food selection. You must know that it has to be nutritious and fresh in a healthy way. A balanced eating program or plan is the only way you’re going to be able to maintain a healthy body weight based on the body mass index and you will be able to maintain it because of your lifestyle change.
There is no quick fix or magic bullet to losing weight like juicing, calorie restriction, protein diet, or fruit diet. It must be done in a way that is slow and enjoyable to you and your surroundings. Just think about the resolutions you embarked upon in January 2010 and how many of those you were successful with. With a healthy lifestyle change, you won’t have to worry about unwanted weight becoming a problem. This year, set your goals at having optimal health and living a pain free longer life. It must start with you believing in yourself and understanding that it’s a day to day journey in which you are the only one that controls the outcome.
You might ask why it is so important to have a healthy lifestyle. One reason is that you could be a candidate for diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, or other illnesses by not changing your lifestyle with nutritional foods. Changing the way you view food will enable you to put a lot of health related issues away. You must understand this decision is not an easy one, but it must be yours and yours alone. We have a new healthcare bill that has just passed that’s related to health care and you must do some preventive health care.
There are three components to having a successful lifestyle change. The first component is about believing in yourself. Know that you’re going to have some ups and downs with your plan. If you fall, just get back on your journey to greatness. There are going to be forks in the road that consist of the negative people around you. If possible, eliminate them.
The second one is taking your food selection seriously. Understand that fast food is not good for your consumption. Food selection is the most important part of the plan. The key is the fresher and more unprocessed your food selection is the healthier your food consumption will be. That’s why I stress that fried foods, sodas, sugary fruit drinks, and processed food that won’t spoil are not to be part of your dietary consumption.
The third one is the importance of exercising, meditation, relaxation and understanding your own emotions. Your overall mindset, believing and seeing your outcome before it is reality – this is the key to your success.
As you embark on your lifestyle changes or your New Year’s resolutions for 2011, think about what changes you want to make and how to make them a reality as well as how to make them simple, enjoyable and less stressful upon your life. The rule is understand who you are and who you want to be while staying focused and maintaining the changes you have planned for 2011. Remember that changes do come with unforeseen obstacles, but you must plan and remain focused in order to understand your new outcome. Diabetes Reversed and Cured.
Whatever your goals or dreams are, you must remain focused and consistent on your path. Have a happy, and safe, New Year.
