Release of Living in Reverse diabetes book
Living in Reverse covers how targeting the centers of chronic disease (obesity and type 2 diabetes) can serve as a focal point for creating more sustainable lives, more sustainable communities and a sustainable health care system
Fifty percent of Americans are either prediabetic or diabetic. Prediabetes and the early stages of type 2 diabetes (T2D) are asymptomatic. As a result, diabetes progresses unnoticed for those who don't get tested. This lack of awareness played a major role in the development of the diabetes epidemic. The diabetes epidemic is not limited to itself. It has a central role in all the major chronic diseases: obesity, heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's.
Diabetes creates an environment that drives these diseases. Obesity and type 2 diabetes are the diseases most dependent on food and therefore the most reversible. If you reverse diabetes, you increase the chances of preventing or reversing heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer's. The implications for people's lives and our communities are enormous. Diabetes reversal can literally function as a central process for creating sustainable lives, sustainable communities, and a sustainable healthcare system. Living in reverse explains the process of diabetes reversal and how targeting diabetes can help create more sustainable communities.
