According to the new CDC estimates, 40% of adults will develop diabetes in their lifetimes. That’s two out of every five Americans! Are you kidding me? This is not an infection, people. It is not contagious. This is a behavioral/dietary issue and we have lost the battle. What we are doing is not working. Please don’t be fooled about the quality metrics forcing doctors to get these people’s glycohemoglobins under 8 either. That may help some but the real issue is how to get these patients to eat better (lower carb) and exercise more and we are no where close to doing that.
