About the Negative Consequences of Diabetes
Before considering the bad news about Diabetes 2, the reader should understand
that diabetes 2 and all its complications is an optional disease process. Each
person who has or is heading for diabetes 2 has choices. The only logical
conclusion is that wrong food and too little exercise will lead you down a path
of misery and progressive deterioration.
Diabetes 2 is really a name for an evolving complex of metabolic
derangement's that contribute to chronic and disabling illnesses. While elevated
levels of sugar in the body seem to be the leading edge changes in fat metabolism, liver and kidney function and then
circulation impairment add to a cascade of dysfunction. 75% of the early deaths
in diabetics are caused by coronary artery disease.
According to the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse (a service of
the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, U.S.
Public Health Service.): "Diabetes is widely recognized as one of the leading
causes of death and disability contributing to the deaths in the USA. Its toll increases every year. Diabetes is
associated with long-term complications that affect every part of the body.
The main horrors are Liver Disease (NAFDL and NASH), blindness, heart disease,
strokes, kidney failure, amputations, and nerve damage. Uncontrolled diabetes
can complicate pregnancy, and birth defects are more common in babies born to
women with diabetes. The American Diabetes Association (Association) released
new research on March 22, 2018 estimating the total costs of diagnosed diabetes
in the USA have risen to $327 billion in 2017 from $245 billion in 2012. Each
year the cost goes up. "This estimate highlights the substantial burden that
diabetes imposes on society. Additional components of societal burden omitted
from our study include intangibles from pain and suffering, resources from care
provided by non-paid caregivers, and the burden associated with undiagnosed
A collection of metabolic problems is found in patients with type 2 Diabetes.
This metabolic syndrome involves insulin resistance, gout, hypertension, android
(visceral) obesity, hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia,
hyperapobetalipoproteinemia and low concentrations of the protective blood fat,
HDL. These metabolic problems are all risk factors for liver disease,
atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease and strokes.
The disturbing fact is that most diabetics will go on to develop one or more
chronic microvascular and neuropathic complications. These problems include
retinopathy, neuropathy, nephropathy (also called the "triopathies") and
Sustained high blood sugar is known to result in changes in cellular
metabolism and causes cumulative long-term changes in macromolecules, generally
described as advanced glycation end-products (AGEs). Potential pathogenic
mechanisms include the accumulation of fructose and sorbitol and the
modification of proteins by glycation.
Nathan (Harvard Medical School, Diabetes Clinic) stated that: Diabetes 2 may
be the most rapidly growing chronic disease in the world. Its long-term
complications, including retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, and accelerated
macrovascular disease cause major morbidity and mortality... pathogenic
mechanisms include the accumulation of sorbitol and other biochemical changes in
tissues with aldose reductase, and the modification of proteins by glycation.
