It seems much harder than it is.
As far as hormonal and metabolic disorders go, Diabetes Mellitus is not an extremely difficult disease state to conquer. It does however require extensive time and energy to be dedicated in order to achieve maximal results. There are medical professionals everywhere that are willing and able to put in the hard work it takes to achieve these goals.
What about everybody else?
In addition to diabetes being one of the leading causes of death in the U.S., uncontrolled diabetes leads directly to the progression of the other #1 leading cause of death which is heart disease. Diabetes specifically affects medically underserved and socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, at an extremely disproportionate rate. Simply put, management is very difficult and very expensive. There are opportunities that we all have and can utilize to support and protect our communities and even some of our own close friends and family members.
Within the U.S. Healthcare Industrial Complex, there are a LOT of little fires everywhere and several ongoing issues that need to be addressed. This large disparity is one of the first and greatest that we can resolve with the support of our own communities. In order to see the change, we will BE the change and this is one of the efforts we have organized to do so.
