The workers’ average age was 42. Here’s how employers can address the growing challenge. There’s no question that diabetes is wreaking havoc in the workplace. The number of people with diabetes is expected to more than triple in the coming decades, and a full-time employee with the condition misses an estimated 5.5 additional workdays per year.

That link may occur as a result of the complex ways that type 2 diabetes affects the ability of the brain and other body tissues to use sugar (glucose) and respond to insulin. Diabetes may also increase the risk of developing mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a condition in which people experience more thinking (cognitive) and memory problems. Comedians may trip and stumble for easy laughs, but there’s nothing funny about falling, which is a major health risk for older adults. Having diabetes increases that risk because the condition can cause physical impairments that may make you less steady on your feet. Anxiety—feelings of worry, fear, or being on edge—is how your mind and body react to stress.

People with diabetes are 20% more likely than those without diabetes to have anxiety at some point in their life. Managing a long-term condition like diabetes is a major source of anxiety for some.

  • Diabetes is a growing health concern worldwide. In the U.S. alone, statistics show that around 1.5 million people are diagnosed with diabetes every year. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death among Americans.

  • Some viewers have asked what they should do if they have been unable to lose weight after delivery. Here is Dr. Seely’s response:
     “Many women have difficulty losing their pregnancy weight. There can be a number of reasons for this. One common reason is that although the women are eating very healthy food, the portions sizes may be too large. Seeing a dietician or nutritionist can be very helpful in this situation.

    Another reason is that some women develop underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) about 6 months after delivery. Many of these women recover but some have long lasting underactive thyroid which slows metabolism and decreases the ability to lose weight. Women who are not losing their pregnancy weight over the year after delivery despite eating healthy and engaging in physical activity should see their care provider for advice.”

  • I’ve tried 4 different statins and within hours of taking I get sudden pains that are like a dagger in my back. New Cardiologist tried Lipitor 10 mg and I cut them in 1/2. Middle of the night I flew out of bed with the dagger phenomenon! I’ve known many guys that warned me they reacted negatively on statins!

  • My grandmother has severe arthritis and high cholesterol, her Dr put her on lipitor. Her joint pain got really bad and she felt really bad. I read about cbd oil and bought superior hemp oil 1500mg and had her take 5 drops at night. The first morning she said slept great but still felt joint pain. The second day she felt less joint pain and on the third day she was able to take a walk and get some sun (vitamin D). We have since worked on her diet, got her off the lipitor and she has continued to take the cbd oil and her cholesterol has gone down.

  • I’ve been on 5 different statins over the course of 7 years starting at age 19 and w/ each one I experienced high CPK levels and also muscle, bone and joint pain. I have since taken the stance of refusing a statin starting at age 26 with the follow up remark of “once a statin is developed that DOESN’T have muscle, bone and joint pain as side effects, I will agree to start on it. Until then, I will pass.”

  • what about stomach distress? had a stroke and my doc team all sweare i need statins to prevent stroke again had my gall bladder out years ago and fear these statins as my body needs are harmed by statins a round robin presentingi’m stuck in I have severe diarrhea since starting statins over a month year ago these docs don’t seem to answer here nor will mine state what number we are striving to reach while on statins where’s the research proof?CRP what that proves huh? its a magix trick these statins are!
