Diabetes which is characterized by high blood sugar levels has become more prominent in recent days. In the United States alone there are more than 100 million diabetic or prediabetic patients and this number is worrying. Diabetes is a deadly disease and can give rise to many disorders including cardiovascular disorders, strokes, kidney failure to name a few.
According to the reports by US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention more than one-third of the American population suffer from a diabetic and pre-diabetic condition. In 2015 more than 30.3 million Americans have become the victim of the diabetic or prediabetic condition and this number was far greater than the one reported in 2014. Hence diabetes has been described as the 7th leading cause and is one of the growing health issues.
Also, more than 84.1 million people have reported high blood sugar levels which are the prediabetes condition but these individuals are not completely diabetic. The diabetic and prediabetic condition is one of the raising concern according to the American Diabetes Associations.
The researchers said that there is a need to take prompt measure to reduce the risk of disease and its impact on the health care system. If this trend continues to increase then diabetes will become the top cause of death in America. The people in the age group of 18 to 44 are 4% more likely to suffer from the diabetic condition and the people in the age group of 45 to 64 and above are 17% more likely to suffer from this condition.
The risk of diabetes also varies based on the ethnic groups and the risk of the disease is high among American Indians followed by blacks, Hispanics, and Asians. Many of these individuals suffering from the diabetic or prediabetic condition are unaware about this. Hence proper nutrition of must to stay away from the disease. The vegetables like broccoli which are rich in sulforaphane should be included in the diet to keep yourself healthy.
