Diabetes Nation: America at Risk - Listening Tour

  • 1 Comments
  • by: ColoradoMountainGuy

This information was forwarded to me and thought it might be of interest. I understand the statistics, especially for childhood diabetes, are staggering and projected to get worse. This seems like an interesting opportunity to see what Colorado is doing to fight diabetes and what more can be done. Information after the jump:

The press release I received:

One in three Americans will develop diabetes if current health trends continue, according to the Centers for Disease Control. And those who have the disease will lose an average of 10 to 15 years of life.

Statistics like those prompted a nationwide town-hall-variety series of meetings. Diabetes Nation: America at Risk plans a meeting in Aurora this month. The four-hour forum is planned from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Oct. 30 at the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes on the University of Colorado Denver’s Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora.

Physician speakers, and representatives from metro area government agencies, the healthcare industry and advocacy groups will gather to talk about local programs aimed at treating and stemming the diabetes epidemic, and ways to enhance those programs.

Representatives hope what they learn in each community about diabetes treatment will be part of a national solution to the health problems posed by the disease. Findings from the nationwide meetings will be presented during a National Conference on Diabetes.

Senior citizens and minorities, among the portions of the population hardest hit by the disease, are encouraged to attend to learn more about diabetes and add their thoughts to the discussion.

The afternoon event is a joint effort of the University of Colorado-Denver, Taking Control of Your Diabetes and the National Minority Quality Forum.

Organizers will provide transportation to those who need it.  Refreshements will be provided.

The meeting is planned in Room 2104 of the Barbara Davis Center, 1775 Aurora Ct., Aurora, 80045.

RSVPs are strongly encouraged.

To RSVP or learn more about the event, call 800-288-5558 or e-mail Diabetes.Nation@bm.com

One thought on “Diabetes Nation: America at Risk – Listening Tour

  1. ….the grain rich USDA recommended diet.  The problem is “hidden in plain sight.”

    Type II diabetes is not due to insulin insufficiency, it is due to cellular insulin desensitization from years of insulin overloads.  How does this happen?

    Eating carbs.  And hearthealthynofathighfiberwholegrains are just as bad as sugar.  Starch IS sugar, linked end to end.

    So, after getting Type II diabetes (and making Big Pharma very, very happy)the officially recommended diet is………more carbs.

    Said diabetics when switching to a low/no carb diet almost always find that they can drop their meds within a couple of weeks. The calories you used to eat as carbs is now eaten as fats, which our system is primed to use.

    Carbohydrates, because of what they do to insulin levels are the root cause of Metabolic Syndrome: Diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and other disorders.  

    A three minute video explanation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v

    Here’s a lecture transcript from a diabetes doctor, “Insulin and its Metabolic Effects.”  Long, but it says everything.
