Diabetes experts said the findings show there is no end in sight to the diabetes epidemic.
Newly diagnosed cases of diabetes rose to 9.1 per 1,000 people annually between 2005 to 2007, up from 4.8 per 1,000 from 1995 to 1997, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.
The most common form of diabetes, type 2 diabetes, is closely linked to obesity and has become increasingly common in recent decades as more people become obese. An estimated 90 percent to 95 percent of the new cases are type 2 diabetes as opposed to type 1 diabetes, also called juvenile diabetes.
Two of my sisters, my Brother, an Aunt and a Brother-in-law are all diabetic. Aunt had it the worst, and I think that it contributed to her death, along never following Dr's orders. My own Doctor is on my case now that I've gained back 30 of the 60 that i had lost. I've dropped 6 pounds since the visit last week. I still get no exersize outside of work. I do get some walking in here, but I don't think it's enough to help. I'm going to have to break ot Dads old exersize bike, or get the old treadmill from out of mothballs. Diabetes scares me more then even the heart Disease that runs in the family. Diabetes destroys your organs over time.
Get some exersize and eat right.
