Do you have anyone in your family who has been affected by this far-reaching disease?  We have quite a few diabetic family members and it’s the topic of many a get-together.  Here are some surprising facts about diabetes:

  • Every 17 seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes.
  • Nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes.
  • Two out of three people with diabetes die of heart disease or stroke.
  • Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure.
  • About 60-70% of people with diabetes have mild to severe forms of nerve damage that could result in pain in the feet or hands, slowed digestion, sexual dysfunction, and other nerve problems.
During November, National Diabetes Month, take a stand against Type II diabetes.  Encourage your family to learn about diabetes and how to prevent it.  Bob Greene, Oprah’s personal trainer and health/wellnes expert, is sharing nutrition and fitness tips.  Do you know the benefits of lean protein (high quality protein, not attached to saturated fat or cholesterol)?  Lean protein makes you feel fuller and keeps you energized during exercise.  It can help diabetics balance their sugar levels and control hunger.
One of the sources of lean protein recommended by Bob Greene is Crystal Farms® Better’n Eggs ® and AllWhites®.  They are fat-free, cholesterol-free, and low-calorie.  Made from real eggs, both have half the calories of shell eggs!  Crystal Farms® Better’n Eggs® and AllWhites® can be used in any recipe as a substitute for eggs.  They don’t contain any added flavorings and won’t affect the flavor of your favorite dish, including raw food – they are pasteurized!
