More than 500 diabetes patients are 'dying prematurely' every week, charity claims.

"More than 500 diabetes patients are dying early every week, figures reveal.

Many are falling victim to strokes, heart attacks and kidney disease, which can be prevented with proper treatment.

An analysis by the charity Diabetes UK found that men and women aged between 35 and 64 with Type 2 diabetes are twice as likely to die early as those without the condition.

Patients with Type 1 diabetes, which is less common and not linked to obesity, are three to four times as likely to die prematurely." Link to this article here.

For decades Diabetes UK have heavily promoted a diet of slow death to diabetics. A diet including highly processed carbohydrates. Carbs turn to sugar once digested. Diabetics are the most allergic to sugar people on the planet. There is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate (medical fact). 

Why could this terrible situation have come about you may be asking yourself. The last time I checked out the Diabetes UK sponsors, they included these companies.

Abbott Bayer Boehringer Ingelheim Bristol Myers Squibb Bupa Bunzl Everyclick First Capital Connect Flora pro.activ Kodak Lilly Lloyds Pharmacy Menarini Merck Serono Morphy Richards Merck Sharp & Dohme Limited Novartis Novo Nordisk Nursing Times PAL Technologies Ltd Pfizer Rowlands Pharmacies Sanofi-aventis SplendaTakeda Tesco Diets.

It is almost always the case, the more carbs/sugar a diabetic consumes, the more pharmaceutical drugs they require to combat highly dangerous blood sugar numbers. This approach to controlling diabetes does not work for most diabetics. DUK publishes grim data on a regular basis, they know it does not work. Clearly, if the charity promoted a low carb diet to all diabetics, the sponsors would suffer a huge loss in revenue. It is highly likely DUK would lose sponsorship money.  

It is my opinion, and that of many others, including a rising number of medical professionals, DUK is promoting a diet of slow death to diabetics. The article title "More than 500 diabetes patients are 'dying prematurely' every week, charity claims" I have no reason to doubt that very grim statistic, it is my opinion one of the root causes is DUK. They should hang their heads in shame. I believe a class action Lawsuit is long overdue for DUK and it cannot come soon enough.

I had a friend who was type 1 diabetic.
For years he was on insulin. He managed to decrease the amount of insulin he needed by going on a low carb diet. Sadly he only found this route a few years before he passed away.

Interesting post once again.

I am pre-diabetic so I really watch what I eat. Hubby was also pre-diabetic but became diabetic due to a steroid medication he was taking for his COPD. Doctor took him off and he seems to be doing well now.

My doctor told me to cut the carbs and sugar almost completely out of my diet. After I did that my A1c went from 11.1 to 8.1 in 6 months.

Important information Jan, unfortunately the Health Departments of the world don't seem to concerned with promoting health via health eating.

How I wish that big business didn't influence so many decisions. And that their impact on our lives was as altruisitic as they pretend.

Such a sad fact...so many deaths. I had no idea it was so high. I have a close friend who is diabetic. She suffers so many ailments due to her condition. It is really worrying.
Oh thank you so much for sharing this important information. I have certainly learned a lot today!

here in india some people get bitten by stray dogs and end up with rabies. people want to do away with these stray dogs but animal rights activists will not allow it. it seems the animal rights activists are supported by companies that manufacture anti rabies vaccine.
