Diabetes and obesity: Diabesity with Sharon Weinstein President, Core Wellness
October was Obesity awareness month; in November, we promoted World Diabetes day, which is celebrated worldwide in more than 160 countries.
Obesity and diabetes lead to DIABESITY, a term coined by former Surgeon General, Dr. Everett Koop. Despite significant changes in treatment standards for diabetes, metabolic control is still a concern. U.S. patients routinely take five or more prescription medicines daily. Lack of medical control and an influx in the incidence of diabetes warrants an intensive look at Diabesity. Diabesity is the causal connection between obesity and type 2 diabetes, and it is on the rise! Diabesity is truly a pandemic in this country and beyond.
