Episode 23:13 The Hidden Cause Of Diabetes

Millions of Americans have Type 2 Diabetes.

35 million Americans to be (somewhat) exact.

Another 96 million Americans are heading towards Type 2 Diabetes.

They have a condition known as “Prediabetes.”

The cost of Type 2 Diabetes on our country is staggering with $1 out of every $4 in US health care costs being spent on caring for people with diabetes.

That comes out to over $237 billion each year.

On top of that, another $90 billion is spent on reduced productivity.

That’s a lot of money!

A lot of money being spent on a condition that is lifestyle related… AND reversible.


Yes, Type 2 Diabetes is reversible.

However, before Type 2 Diabetes can be reversed (or prevented) the CAUSE must be identified.

Certainly diet plays an important role… as does a lack of exercise.

But what else?

Are there any other factors that play significant roles in the development of Type 2 Diabetes?

The answer is a resounding “Yes!”

On this episode we look at one of these factors.

A factor that does NOT get talked about enough.

A factor that, although often hidden, may very well be THE primary cause of Type 2 Diabetes for many individuals.

A factor that should no longer go unnoticed.

Give this episode a good listen as we talk about this factor… this hidden cause of Type 2 Diabetes.
