Diabetes rate Alarming !
One in Three Children Will Develop Diabetes !!
Here is Global Diabetes epidemic !!!

One in three American children born in 2000 will develop diabetes in his or her lifetime,
according to a new U.S. government report.

K.M. Venkat Narayan, MD, Chief of the Diabetes Epidemiology Section at the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, presented the
findings here on June 14th at the American Diabetes Association 63rd Annual Scientific

The study showed that 33% of boys and 39% of girls born in 2000 will develop diabetes
in their lifetime. Hispanic children face the worse odds of developing the disease:
45% of the boys and 53% of the girls will become diabetic, the model predicted.
Black boys and girls stand a 40 and 45% risk of developing diabetes in their lifetimes,
respectively, while for white boys and girls, the comparable figures are 27% and 31% .....

"We knew that the diabetes rate was increasing, but this finding was dramatic even to us,
" Dr. Narayan said. The projected lifetime risk is about three times higher than the American
Diabetes Association's current estimate, he said...........

"The message to physicians is to stress to their patients that while all of this is frightening,
there is a lot of hope," he said in an interview. "With simple lifestyle changes -- including
healthier diets and physical activity -- patients can decrease their risk of developing diabetes
by more than 50%."

Last year, the Diabetes Prevention Program trial of 3,234 overweight people with pre-diabetes
showed that at 3 years, participants who modified their lifestyles slashed their risk of developing
type 2 diabetes by 58%, compared with those taking placebo.
