Learn How to Prevent Diabetes in 2 Minutes

Do you have diabetes or pre-diabetes (your blood sugar is higher than normal but not yet abnormal enough to be diagnosed as having diabetes)? Are you sure?

By 2020 it’s estimated that 1/3 of Americans will either be diabetic or pre-diabetic. 366 million people in the world have it now and diabetes is killing someone in the world every 7 seconds.

According to the American Diabetes Association, these are the symptoms of diabetes:

Type 1 Diabetes

  • Frequent urination
  • Unusual thirst
  • Extreme hunger
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Extreme fatigue and Irritability

Type 2 Diabetes*

  • Any of the type 1 symptoms
  • Frequent infections
  • Blurred vision
  • Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
  • Tingling/numbness in the hands/feet
  • Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections

*Often people with type 2 diabetes have no symptoms

For many people, diabetes is preventable. I’ve created this educational music video to help you learn how. It’s 2 minutes long with lots of easy to remember information. Don’t let diabetes take control of you.
