Diabetes Awareness Month

Type II diabetes is the most common lifestyle-related chronic disease. To combat this, November is Diabetes Awareness Month.

Despite unprecedented awareness and education campaigns, diabetes rates continue to increase, as do the cluster of other conditions that accompany it, like high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, gout, and Alzheimer’s. Nearly 50% of adults are on a clear path to a diagnosis. If that data point isn’t sobering enough, the CDC reports that between 2002 and 2018, there was around a 5% increase in diagnoses of people under 20 (ie: not counted in the adult data). Of course the increase didn’t stop in 2018, that’s just when the study stopped.

More recently, underlying diabetes has been a major factor in the severity of COVID-19.

Evidence is mounting: Not only does having diabetes make it more difficult for a body to fight off the virus, but the virus itself can trigger full blown diabetes in those who were only prediabetic before. Diabetes is its own pandemic and it’s making us more vulnerable to every other illness.

Doctors will give treatments, but they don’t give any hope for improvement.

They give the generic advice of “eat healthier, exercise more, and lose some weight”. If that worked, or even if medications were effective in treating or preventing it, then the number of diabetic diagnoses should be decreasing, right?

That is clearly not the case. Instead, we’re being blamed. They say that despite all of our doctors’ attempts to get us to do better, we just won’t listen. The increase in diabetes couldn’t possibly indicate a failure of the medical establishment to understand the disease, right? It must mean that everyone prioritizes convenience over quality of life.

It is abundantly clear that blaming the victims isn’t helping anything.

Most people will do almost anything to avoid being sick. Especially if their doctor has suggested it. Unfortunately, nutrition advice to combat this disease is completely untethered from the biological facts surrounding it because your doctor doesn’t trust you to change your lifestyle or diet. The outcome of all of this mistrust is that diabetes awareness campaigns haven’t led to any decreases in diagnoses of (or complications from) diabetes.

Here at Reframe Wellness, we believe in people.

We know there is a better way. In fact, our success rate helping individual diabetic and pre-diabetic clients reverse their diagnoses by reframing their nutrition, is 100%. Simple nutritional changes, and not the ones you think. They aren’t rocket science, but you won’t learn them from your doctor either.

If your doctor prescribes a medication to regulate your diabetes rather than giving you real, actionable, biologically-based nutrition and lifestyle guidance and you’re looking for an alternative, you’ve come to the right place. Have you received a pre-diabetic diagnoses and know that this is not a disease you want? You’ve come to the right place. Family history of diabetes? Looking for a preventive lifestyle, to avoid that fate? We’re here for you.

We are getting ready to launch a Reframe Wellness diabetes-specific course to help anyone caught in this confusing cycle. In this course, we’ll connect the dots from the hard science to what’s actually happening in your body. Then, most importantly, show you how you can change it. As we always say, you can’t make the right lifestyle changes if you don’t understand what’s actually happening.

Don’t take our word for it. See what our clients have to say…

“If I had known that I could reverse my diabetes I would have done this two and a half years ago!” – J.W.

“There are key things that I have applied to my life going through this Reframe course that helped me consistently lower my blood sugar levels, discontinue my medications, increase my energy level, and feel healthy. When to eat, what to eat, and what not to eat are just a few things included in the Reframe program. If you’re searching for the right way to improve your health, get involved with this system.” – D.P.

In conclusion…

With diabetes impacting nearly 50% of our population and listed on the CDC as the 7th most common cause of death each year, this is relevant to all of us. “Healthy” eating is a national obsession, yet nobody’s getting healthier. Everyone agrees that lifestyle changes can make a difference in diabetes. So why don’t the changes they tell us to make work? We can do better by Reframing everything we think we know about diabetes.
