Type 2 Diabetes in Women A Present Day Health Threat

How Type 2 Diabetes in Women A Present Day Health Threat

The newest group to be fearing the threat of type 2 diabetes is young women in their late twenties and early thirties and according to the ‘Diabetes Defense’, “this condition is growing at a scary rate” although it is a most preventable disease.

What may be surprising about this situation, is that, a person may not be obese or have any noticeable symptoms of the disease. Very “healthy-looking” and the emphasis is on healthy looking, young women have been caught by the element that is responsible for the onset of diabetes — the consumption of too much sugar.

There is much research that shows that fat without carbs and carbs without fat usually do not cause health problems. The problems evolve with the addition of too much sugar. So Carbs and too much sugar and Fats and too much sugar can be dangerous to one’s health. But, why is this? For most people, there is much care taken to limit the amount of sugar used in the morning teas or coffee. So, how is it that there is too much sugar in the body.

It has been proved to come from the processed foods on the shelves of food stores. It is alarming, the amount of sugar found in most processed foods. Here’s what has happened over time. Dr. Lustig, one of the most vocal researchers on this subject has called sugar a toxic poison. This doctor argues that because of the way our bodies break down glucose and fructose, sugar acts like a poison would.

When there is excess fructose in the body, the liver has no choice but to turn the energy into liver fat which which causes a number of diseases among which is diabetes. But one of the problems is the number of things that contain sugar for which there is very little knowledge. For example most processed foods contain sugars; even foods that we do not suspect. Another problem is the labeling that measures sugar in grams instead of in teaspoons. For general information, four grams of sugar equals on teaspoon.

Without knowing it, who would have imagined that in a can of Coke there are 10 teaspoons of sugar and a Healthy Choice microwave chicken dinner would contain five and a half teaspoons of sugar. I was amazed by this fact.

In a study published in the journal of the American Heart Association, the author identified a link between drinking more than one can of Pop or soft drink a day and a heightened risk of developing heart disease and diabetes.
