Diabetes the Silent Killer - The Iceberg Effect!
What sank the "Unsinkable Ship" the Titanic was not the tip of the iceberg, but the lurking 90% percent of the iceberg hidden under the surface. In the movie you see the captain steer the ship clear of the block of ice on top of the water, but underneath not known to the captain, crew or passengers, the razor sharp ice was splitting the steel bottom of the vessel like a stick of melted butter. Only after it was too late that the damage was known to all. Only a handful survived!
If you do not do something quickly, Diabetes is going to get you the same way the ice berg sank the unsinkable Titanic. The scary part of Diabetes is you can not see it. It doesn't neccessarily hang on you out in the open. Yes, you have excess weight on you, but the damage is being done down under. Sure you may realize it, but it may be too late. So instead of a gigantic ice cube slicing through you, you get a free trip to the surgeon's room only to come out, one limb less than your trip in. Sounds morbid, doesn't it? But, this is reality. If you do not see the iceberg coming you're going to slowly drown.
Diabetes is a silent killer. The way things are going; survivors are going to be only the ones looking of a lifeboat now. Do not be fooled. You are not exempt from this happening to you. You are not an unsinkable ship! Your lifeboat only comes in the form of exercise and eating right. You think health care is scary now, wait a few years and see the life boats coming in with the wounded, frozen and emotionally drained. But, there is hope for you; here is what you do;
? Realize you're not protected from diabetes, take preventive measures.
? Just start being active; get moving, increase your circulation.
? Control your complex carbohydrate intake, especially at night.
? Cut out or down on the soft drinks.
? Join a support group or get a workout partner to walk with.
? Get your blood checked often for diabetes.
? Check your body-fat levels: 30 percent of more equals obesity.
? By the sugar busters book, read it and start doing it.
Diabetes is such a sneaky dangerous disease. Today, you may be ok, tomorrow you may fall prey to the iceberg. With diabetes it's not what you see that can sink you!
