Obesity Crisis

By: Dr. Amid Habib

The United States and probably the entire world is facing an unprecedented health crisis due to a tremendous increase in the incidents of obesity, diabetes, hyperlipidemia and related complications. 2/3 of adults and 1/3 of children in this country are overweight, diabetes has increased 10 fold over the past 40 years and as of 2008, there are 24 million children and adults in this country who are diabetics and another 54 million who are in a pre-diabetic state, and most of them are not aware of it, and I will predict by the year 2020, we will have 30 million people in this country who are diabetics and another 70 million people who are in a pre-diabetic state.

The health consequences of diabetes and the pre-diabetic state, and its complications include cardiovascular disease (heart disease and stroke), blindness (retinopathy), nerve damage (neuropathy), and kidney damage (nephropathy) chronic fatigue, depression and increased risk of various forms of cancer. It is important to mention that heart disease constitutes 40% of all deaths and diabetic men have twice, and women four times, the risk of developing heart disease than non-diabetics. Two-thirds of patients with Type 2 diabetes will die from heart disease and nearly half of patients admitted to the hospital with heart failure are diabetic.

The estimated cost of taking care of diabetes and its complications in this country is in the range of $200 billion dollars per year and remembering that a decrease of hemoglobin A1c level by 1% will decrease diabetic complications by 32%. The TreolifeVM and TreolifeEFA formulas dropping hemoglobin A1c levels by an average of 1% can decrease the cost of medical expenses in this country by billions of dollars per year.

I have used the system myself and recommended it for my patients, dropping their hemoglobin A1c levels, improving their diabetic control and their dyslipidemia.
