the number one killer in America

The estimates are between 700,000 and 900,000 per year that lose their lives to heart disease. Those figures are for America alone, and are for one year . The Articles mention that most of these folks are obese. Is also mentioned that the problem is worsening every year.

I was obese for probably around 20 years myself. I can’t figure out why I did that and let that stand. The reason I changed it was fear of going back in the Intensive Care Unit again.

I think those figures come out to anywhere between 2000 and 2500 people every single day dying from heart disease.

Some thoughts – Type 1 diabetes

Leave a comment

Looking at the category tables for money assigned to disease, for research, Type 1 and Type 2 are lumped together. In those tables the NIH estimates that from 5 to 10% of diabetes is Type 1.

My gut tells me that most folks think Type 1 diabetes is a done deal, don’t need research, it can be controlled, let’s move on.

For those that feel that way, there is no taking into account the lifestyle Type 1 diabetes dictates. It’s pretty damn rough. It’s a 24/7 issue for the parents, the patient and the siblings.

There is no cure, just treatment, and it’s expensive, time consuming, stressful and painful.

In my opinion, we can’t stop here, not even close to here. I’ve been near the trenches for a few days and I was absolutely shocked at what I saw.

Here’s a link to those tables . . .
