Type 2 diabetes is a contemporary pandemic that affects millions of people. Nearly 400 million individuals suffer with the disease across the globe, with 28 million suffering from it in the United States alone — and the number is growing. What is the root of the problem? Carbohydrate- and sugar-heavy diets, combined with a sedentary lifestyle, have created a situation in which our bodies are unable to keep up. In turn, this leads to insulin resistance and a host of other severe health problems. Unfortunately, the usual therapy for type 1 diabetes does not function in the case of type 2 diabetes, for whatever reason. In reality, there is plenty of data to suggest that taking insulin injections increases your chance of developing cardiovascular illnesses, such as strokes and heart attacks, if you have diabetes type 2.
