Find our the reason why at http://www.blackamericanhealth.net African Americans are more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes as compared to non-Hispanic whites. Furthermore, they are more at risk to acquire complications from diabetes, such as end-stage renal disease and lower extremity amputations. They are also more likely to have high blood pressure even though they have lower rate of having high cholesterol.

http://goo.gl/QCJ9b0 - How to reverse diabetes! Turns out, the diabetes industry is selling us fake research! Hi! I'm robo-Suzie and today I'll talk to you about Diabetes - African Americans Deadly Foe. Also don't forget to check out the link below, to find out, how this guy reversed his diabetes! Turns out, the diabetes industry is selling us fake research! But back to our topic. Diabetes is having a devastating effect on the African American community. Diabetes is the fifth leading cause of death in African Americans and their death rates are twenty seven percent higher than whites. Over 2.8 million African Americans have diabetes and one third of them don't know they have the disease. In addition, twenty five percent of African Americans between the ages of 65 - 74 have diabetes and one in four African American women, over the age of 55, have been diagnosed with the disease The cause of diabetes is a mystery, but researchers believe that both genetics and environmental factors play roles in who will develop the disease. Heredity. Researchers believe that African Americans and African Immigrants are predisposed to developing diabetes. Research suggests that African Americans and recent African immigrants have inherited a "thrifty gene" from their African ancestors. This gene may have enabled Africans to use food energy more efficiently during cycles of feast and famine. Now, with fewer cycles of feast and famine, this gene may make weight control more difficult for African Americans and African Immigrants. This genetic predisposition, coupled with impaired glucose tolerance, is often associated with the genetic tendency toward high blood pressure. People with impaired glucose tolerance have higher than normal blood glucose levels and are at a higher risk for developing diabetes. What is Diabetes? Diabetes, commonly know as "sugar diabetes", is a condition that occurs when the body is unable to properly produce or use insulin. Insulin is needed by the body to process sugar, starches and other foods into energy. Diabetes is a chronic condition for which there is no known cure; diabetes is a serious disease and should not be ignored. Diabetics often suffer from low glucose levels (sugar) in their blood. Low blood sugar levels can make you disorientated, dizzy, sweaty, hungry, have headaches, have sudden mood swings, have difficulty paying attention, or have tingling sensations around the mouth. Types of Diabetes. Pre-diabetes is a condition that occurs when a person's blood glucose levels is higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. Pre-diabetes can cause damage to the heart and circulatory system, but pre-diabetes can often be controlled by controlling blood glucose levels. By controlling pre-diabetes you can often prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes. Type 1 or juvenile-onset diabetes usually strikes people under the age of 20, but can strike at any age. Five to ten percent of African Americans who are diagnosed with diabetes are diagnosed with this type of the disease. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body produces little or no insulin and this type of diabetes must be treated with daily insulin injections. Type 2 or adult onset diabetes is responsible for ninety to ninety-five percent of diagnosed diabetes cases in African Americans. Type 2 results from a condition where the body fails to properly use insulin. According to the American Diabetes Association, "Type 2 is usually found in people over 45, who have diabetes in their family, who are overweight, who don't exercise and who have cholesterol problems." In the early stages it can often be controlled with lifestyle changes, but in the later stages diabetic pills or insulin injections are often needed. Pregnancy related diabetes or gestational diabetes can occur in pregnant women. Gestational diabetes is often associated with high glucose blood levels or hyperglycemia. Gestational diabetes affects about four percent of all pregnant women. The disease usually goes away after delivery, but women who suffer from gestational diabetes are at a higher risk for developing diabetes later in life. Symptoms of Diabetes. The most common symptoms of diabetes include: excessive urination including frequent trips to the bathroom. increased thirst. increased appetite. blurred vision. unusual weight loss. increased fatigue. irritability. Complications from Diabetes. Diabetes can lead to many disabling and life threatening complications. Strokes, blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, and amputations are common complications that effect African Americans who have diabetes Kidney Disease. "Diabetes is the second leading cause of end stage kidney disease in African Americans, accounting for about thirty percent of the new cases each year," says the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois. Up to twenty-one percent of people who develop diabetes will develop kidney disease.

Five Signs That Could be Symptoms of Diabetes
 
01:46
The numbers are surely attention getting: nearly 7 million Americans have undiagnosed diabetes. What gets less notice are the early warning signs. "If they're not going to their doctor, if they're not seeing their physician they're not having those lab works, they're not reporting their signs they could just be going along with their normal daily activities," says Melanie Aracri, a certified diabetes educator for Lee Memorial Health System. All too often patients show up at a hospital in a health crisis and find out they have highly elevated blood sugar. New studies find 1 in 10 heart attack patients may have undetected diabetes. We've broken down 5 warnings signs that should get your attention. "The three classic signs of high blood sugar, we call them the three "P"s: polyphagia, polydipsia, and polyuria. Those are increased thirst, increased hunger, and increased urination," says Aracri. It's easy to minimize increased thirst, especially when it's hot. And frequent urination seems to naturally follow. But experts say it could be our body's way of flushing extra glucose. "The kidney has to work really hard to get that blood sugar out, that blood glucose out when it's high," says Aracri. Wounds that don't heal could be another warning sign. "The body's not able to fight that infection because of that extra glucose in the system," says Aracri. Frequent yeast or urinary tract infections may also be a red flag many people fail to consider. The earlier diabetes is picked up, the easier it is to avoid complications. "it's a learning how to adapt your eating pattern, your meal plan to your lifelong activities and daily habits," says Aracri.

Heart Disease  What Black Women Should Do
 
01:36
Please visit us at http://www.blackamericanhealth.net to get more ideas about heart disease in African American women. Heart Disease- What Black Women Should Do What is heart disease and what Black Women should do about it? Well, learn all the necessary things here. Do you know that heart disease & stroke is the No. 1 killer in women? Moreover, stroke disproportionately affects African-Americans. Importantly, African-American women are less likely than Caucasian women to be aware that heart disease is the leading cause of death. Diabetes, smoking, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, physical inactivity, obesity and a family history of heart disease are all greatly prevalent among African-Americans and are major risk factors for heart disease and stroke. What’s more, African-American women have almost two times the risk of stroke than Caucasians, and more likely to die at an earlier age when compared to women of other ethnicities. Why African Women has bee the target of having heart disease. Researchers have found that there may be a gene that makes African-Americans much more sensitive to the effects of salt, which in turn increases the risk for developing high blood pressure. In people who have this gene, as little as one extra gram (half a teaspoon) of salt could raise blood pressure by as much as five millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). The African-American population also tends to have higher rates of obesity and diabetes, which puts them at higher risk for high blood pressure and heart disease. But for many African-American women, particularly those who consider themselves perfectly healthy, perception may not always equal reality.

What Causes Diabetes?
 
03:44
Download Diabetes Management Book: http://bit.ly/2g0NDAH Hello, I'm Ty Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com, researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I'm going to answer the question, what causes diabetes. But before we get into that, make sure you download my free diabetes management book which also includes a diabetes grocery shopping guide (foods to eat and avoid). Let me start off by saying I am NOT a doctor, I have no medical training whatsoever, I didn’t even stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. I am just a guy with diabetes who wants to help educate others. That being said, I have been asked to answer what causes diabetes in 3 and a half minutes. So let’s get started. When talking about diabetes, there really is a myriad of different types of diabetes and I hope to get into all of them at some point, but today we are going to focus on Type 2 Diabetes because that is the most common. People with Type 2 diabetes have a malfunction in their bodies that doesn’t allow them to use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to keep everything in check, but, over time it isn't able to keep up and make enough insulin. OK, we know what it is, but the question is what causes it. That is not an easy question to answer. But many scientists think genetic susceptibility and environmental factors are the most likely triggers of type 2 diabetes. Having certain genes or combinations of genes may increase or decrease a person’s risk for developing the disease. The role of genes is suggested by the high rate of type 2 diabetes in families and identical twins and wide variations in diabetes prevalence by ethnicity. The known genes appear to affect insulin production rather than insulin resistance. Researchers are constantly looking at other ways genes can interact with one another and with environmental factors to cause diabetes. Physical inactivity and obesity are strongly associated with the development of type 2 diabetes. People who are genetically susceptible to type 2 diabetes are more vulnerable when these risk factors are present. An imbalance between caloric intake and physical activity can lead to obesity, which causes insulin resistance and is common in people with type 2 diabetes. Central obesity, in which a person has excess abdominal fat, is a major risk factor not only for insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes but also for heart and blood vessel disease, also called cardiovascular disease. The American Diabetes Association says that people who develop type 2 diabetes are more likely to have the following characteristics: -age 45 or older -overweight or obese --physically inactive parent or sibling with diabetes -family background that is African American, Alaska Native, -American Indian, Asian American, Hispanic/Latino, or Pacific -Islander American -history of giving birth to a baby weighing more than 9 pounds -history of gestational diabetes -high blood pressure—140/90 or above—or being treated for high blood pressure There literally are thousands of studies with hundreds of factors that cause diabetes. The list in front of you isn’t exhaustive, but if you have Type 2 diabetes you probably fall under one or more of these categories. The good news is, diabetes is not fatal. With proper diet, exercise and often medication you can live a rather normal happy life. I hope this answered your question what causes diabetes. Don’t forget to get your diabetes management book. Let me know if you have any other diabetes related questions.

This is another part of the lecture where the speaker (an engineer) discusses why the American Diabetes Association (ADA) fired him. Despite the engineer's success with improving the health of diabetics in the support group, doctors complained that they were losing money because people were buying less diabetic drugs. Note: African-Americans and other ethnic groups are manipulated by these groups via church health fairs and by asking them to do volunteer work. Racial profiling exists in many walks of life -- schools, work, police, doctors, hospitals, medical industry, shopping, etc. The best thing to do is to arm yourself with knowledge.

TREATING HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE IN AFRICAN AMERICANS
 
01:40
Get more details at http://www.blackamericanhealth.net. Treating High Blood Pressure in African-Americans Treating High Blood Pressure in African-Americans is very important since hypertension is a major clinical and public health problem for them. It is because African Americans have high prevalence and premature onset of elevated blood pressure. Furthermore, the common occurrence of pressure-related target-organ injury and the high prevalence of risk-augmenting co-morbidities such as diabetes mellitus and chronic kidney disease in African Americans markedly increase the possibility of pressure-related morbidity and mortality in this group at any given BP level. These issues result in the long-term exposure of large proportions of African Americans to higher than optimal BP and disproportionate development of associated consequences. Recently, high blood pressure is being classified as a blood pressure more than 140/90 in people under 60, and greater than 150/90 in people over 60. To prevent high blood pressure, African Americans should be encouraged to make lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthier diet, quitting smoking and having more exercise. Treatment with medication is advised to lower blood pressure to less than 140/90 in people younger than 60, and less than 150/90 in people older than 60. Treating high blood pressure in African Americans involves lifestyle changes and possibly drug therapy. Diuretics are often recommended as the first line of therapy for most people who have high blood pressure. But, your doctor may start a medicine other than a diuretic as the first line of therapy if you have certain medical problems. Just for instance, ACE inhibitors are a common choice for a people with diabetes. If one drug doesn't work or is ineffective, additional medications or alternative medications might be suggested. When your blood pressure is more than 20/10 points higher than it should be, then your doctor might consider you having two drugs or placing you on a combination drug.

Why black Americans are getting less sleep
 
05:35
How the sleep gap reflects inequality and contributes to it. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO A good night’s rest is critical for your health, and a lot can go wrong when you don’t get enough it. Sleep deprivation can contribute to obesity, diabetes, inflammation, heart disease, and more. The minimum recommended amount for adults is 7 hours (this too can vary from person to person). But, a third of Americans are sleep deprived — and on average, Black Americans are clocking in the least amount of z’s. Black Americans already face steep disparities in health, and not getting enough good sleep can compound on those issues. By examining the sleep gap, and addressing the root causes, we may be able to tackle other inequalities in the US too.

The Truth About Physical Activity in the Black Community - AACORN/SDBA
 
01:01:25
The benefits of physical activity for preventing and treating chronic diseases, including diabetes, are well established. Self-report instruments suggest that African Americans engage in less leisure-time physical activity (LTPA) than other population subgroups; however, objectively measured physical activity suggests that African Americans may be more active, overall. During this webinar we will discuss differences in physical activity patterns obtained from self-report and objective measures of physical activity, and the impact of these assessments on public health recommendations and campaigns. We will also describe specific benefits of LTPA and efforts to address disparities in LTPA in African American populations.

They experience symptoms of an enlarged prostate, impotence or erectile dysfunction, headaches, fatigue, addictions, and depression -- all of which can be symptoms of a serious health problem Research shows men are more likely to engage in unhealthy behavior; don't seek medical attention; are less likely to have health insurance; and more likely to work in dangerous occupations.
