Diabetes Epidemic & You by Joseph R. Kraft (Paperback)
DIABETES EPIDEMIC and YOU is not a cliche! It is a mandate for the awakening of the “silent” millions worldwide with “normal” fasting blood sugars and undiagnosed diabetes. If you have a “normal” fasting blood sugar, YOU may be one of the undiagnosed millions. YES, I do mean YOU.
Since Hippocrates’ time, earliest diagnosis provided the greatest opportunity for treatment and cure. This book highlights the earliest identification of type 2 diabetes by utilizing the insulin assay with the oral glucose tolerance.
My cumulative experience of 14,384 oral glucose tolerances with insulin assays established the earliest diagnosis of prediabetes and diabetes when the blood sugars were normal. Prediabetes is type 2 diabetes. The tolerances were separated according to age groups, from 3-13 years to 81-90+ years. Each group was further divided into normal glucose tolerances, impaired glucose tolerances, and diabetes mellitus glucose tolerances. YOU, upon testing by oral glucose tolerance, will be in one of these categories.
