Thousands, if not millions.
The unpleasant consequences of long-term Type2Diabts are well-known by almost everyone.
On the other hand, the most severe and even more harmful consequences of managing Type2Diabts with meds or injection are not yet known by many of them.
The dark side of it was well-researched & explained in the famous ACCORD TRIAL research paper and published on Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) on April 7th, 2015.
They found those who use meds or injections to manage Type2Diabts are:
-22% more susceptible to pass out faster,
-36% more vulnerable to heart issues,
-gain more mass in the body, and
-more fluid retention in the body,
then those who do not use those meds or injections.
And the rising care cost is astronomical, if not exponential over time.
Moreover, when it comes to dealing with Type2Diabts, the vast majority of them are either misinformed or not informed.
And that is not for the lack of research and information that is available. It's actually the opposite.
There can be too much information or contradicting opinions, which makes it extremely difficult to follow on a daily basis.
So then what happened?
You start, You stop. Then you enter an endless cycle of guilt, resentment, restrictions on eating, so and so, and you end up living with Type2Diabts, and the subsequent consequences follow.
In the end, you give up - either by choice or by force.
And that's the most costly outcome of all.
