The CDC projects a huge jump in kids and teens with diabetes over the next 40 years. This isn’t news and it isn’t a surprise; it is confirmation of what has been known for the past couple of years. 20 years ago, type 2 diabetes was very rare among children. With childhood obesity on the rise, type 2 diabetes is projected to increase by almost 50%. Unless we (all of us) act now, this is a National healthcare and economic disaster in the making. Weight loss hypnosis with Slender For Life™is a perfect solution for children and their families. Hypnosis for weight loss works.
CDC Projects Huge Diabetes Jump
in Kids, Teens
WebMD Health News, November 21, 2012: The number of children and teens with type 1 and type 2 diabetes is expected to spike dramatically in the next 40 years, creating what one expert calls a potential catastrophe for the nation’s health care system.
Rates of type 2 diabetes could increase four times over the next 40 years, and rates of type 1 diabetes may triple, the new CDC report says. The CDC’s numbers assume that the rate of diabetes will increase over time.
Even if the rates stay as they are now, the number of children and teens with type 2 diabetes is projected to climb by almost 50% over the same period, and the number with type 1 diabetes will rise by 23%.
“Diabetes is clearly increasing at an unacceptable rate, and while we are doing a whole lot better in terms of treating it, we simply can’t keep up,” says American Diabetes Association Chief Scientific and Medical Officer Robert E. Ratner, MD. “The simple fact is we are losing the battle by not preventing this disease.”
Just two decades ago, type 2 diabetes was almost never seen in children, but it has become more common with higher rates of childhood obesity, Ratner says.
Here at the Seattle weight loss hypnosis and Bainbridge Island weight loss hypnosis offices of Slender For Life™ I know that childhood obesity for the most part can be prevented and that it is reversible. I also know that weight loss for children has to be a family affair.
