The American Diabetes Association (ADA) reports that the prevalence of diabetes among non-Hispanic Blacks is 11.7%, compared to just 7.5% among non-Hispanic whites. With a frequency of 9.2%, Asian Americans are somewhat more impacted by diabetes than white Americans.
Helpful three-part strategy for a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet that treats and avoids Prediabetes/Diabetes II (also cures/prevents high blood pressure and high cholesterol). Very comprehensive description of insulin resistance and its treatment.
I’m pleased the book gave solid facts and information on why a low-carb, high-fat diet is not sustainable.
Diet works if you adhere to it, as simple as that. It is simple to sustain this diet long-term.
Which race has the greatest diabetes prevalence?
- Among the five racial groups recorded by the U.S. Census, Pacific Islanders and American Indians have the highest prevalence of diabetes.
- African-Americans and Asian-Americans have a higher incidence of diabetes than whites.
Which race has the highest incidence of diabetes?
That is correct. According to the American Diabetes Association, African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, and certain Pacific Islanders and Asian Americans are at a greater risk for type 2 diabetes than Caucasians (ADA).
This is the finest diabetic book that I have ever read. The excellent ones all recommend a high-carbohydrate, low-fat, plant-based diet, but this one explains why we should follow this diet. I have been a whole-food, plant-based eater for around five years, but I ate too many nuts, nut butters, and seeds despite the fact that they are entire foods.
As soon as I read the explanation in this book, I saw why too much fat was harmful. My insulin consumption went from 30 units per day to 12 units per day, and it seems to be moving even lower, and my blood sugar management has improved to the point that it is almost predictable, while on a high-fat diet, my blood sugar was like a random walk.
I adore this book! BTW, except when I’m fasting, I’m never hungry. Intermittent fasting is not required, but it does help you lose weight and activate your cellular defenses. Eating according to the advice in this book will help mend your metabolic disease, and you will lose weight. Good luck!!!!
