Nutrient Supplements Are Even More Important For Diabetics

Every time the 14th of November rolls around, World Diabetes Day does as well, giving us yet another sad reminder of just how many lives that the disease is affecting worldwide. In the United States alone, there are nearly 27 million diabetics with an estimated 7 million more currently undiagnosed. 

That total of over 34 million Americans equals right around 13% of the total population. In other words, for each of your ten friends and family members, at least one of them is diabetic (on average). 

The really shocking part of this growth in those with diabetes, though, is how much the number just continues to grow year over year. At the start of the new millennium, when the calendar flipped to 2000, just over 9% of the population either had diabetes or was considered “undiagnosed.” That number has steadily grown year over year to get to 13% of the population. 

To put those percentages into a more recognizable format, the number of Americans officially diagnosed with diabetes in the year 2000 was just a tiny bit over 12 million. As mentioned before, that number now stands at 27 million diagnosed diabetic as of 2020.



Diabetes: Traversing & Crippling the Globe for Centuries

World Diabetes Day rolls around every November 14th. Although this national holiday became official in 1991, the history of diabetes runs deep:

  • “An ailment suspected to be diabetes was recognized by the Egyptians in manuscripts dating to approximately 1550 B.C. ~
  • “On 11 January 1922, Leonard Thompson, a 14-year-old boy with diabetes… was given the first injection of insulin.”`
  • “In 1959, two distinct types of diabetes were identified when Solomon Berson and Rosalyn Sussman Yalow developed radioimmunoassay methods to measure insulin in the blood.
