Global Diabetes Cases Expected To Soar From 529 Million To 1.3 Billion By 2050


More than half a billion people are living with diabetes worldwide, affecting men, women, and children of all ages in every country. The number is projected to more than double to 1.3 billion people in the next 30 years, with every country seeing an increase, according to The Lancet.


Diabetic disorders are divided into two types: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body’s immune system destroys specific cells in the pancreas, the organ that produces the vital hormone insulin. In type 2 diabetes the body does not make, or does not use, insulin very well. This results in high levels of glucose building up in the blood, which over time can result in widespread problems including damage to the cardiovascular system, eyes, kidneys, nervous system, limbs, and feet.

Common symptoms of diabetes include tiredness, extreme thirst, an increased need to urinate, cuts and bruises that are slow to heal, and an increased susceptibility to infections. Many people do not always notice these symptoms, and even ignore them. Patients sometimes live with them for years before being diagnosed. This can be very dangerous to their health.

Conventional medicine is confined to treating the symptoms of type 2 diabetes by lowering the elevated blood levels of glucose. However, cardiovascular disease and other diabetic complications can still occur in patients whose glucose levels are successfully controlled. This shows that, while clearly necessary, addressing glucose levels alone is an incomplete treatment for diabetic disorders.

Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine approach provides a breakthrough in our understanding of the causes, prevention, and treatment of type 2 diabetes. As we now know, its primary cause is a long-term deficiency of essential nutrients in the cells of the pancreas, the liver, the blood vessel walls, and other organs. An optimum intake of the correct nutrients can therefore not only help prevent type 2 diabetes, it can also correct diabetic disorders and their complications.
