Diabetes: costs for your health care are more than double than those who do not have diabetes. The cost of treating the complications of diabetes alone averages $10,000 per year. The risk of death for people with diabetes is about twice that of people without diabetes of similar age.
Most diseases have complications. For example, those with diabetes often have high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Those with osteoporosis often suffer fractures.
These diseases are preventable and treatable naturally. These diseases not only cost a lot of money, they cost you quality of life. Your insurance rates will be higher, you may not qualify for long term care or coverage, and you will be paying more money towards your disease than towards things you may enjoy, like vacations, home repairs, and family.
It is never too late to turn your health around. You just need to know how.
