About the Book

The American diet is typically high in sugar consumption and extremely acidic. This lifestyle leads to insulin resistance, inflammation, diabetes, high blood pressure, risk for heart attack or stroke, and possibly dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. In The New Threat of Type 3 Diabetes, authors Alan D. Raguso and Maria Lizotte offer an understanding of diabetes, discussing why people’s health declines and why they get sick. Based on their personal and professional experiences with diabetes, they discuss concepts of body chemistry, look at inflammation as a health risk, and share how it’s a result of improper food intake, heredity, and environmental conditions, along with economics, poor pH balance, lack of moderate exercise, and the modern technological world. Raguso and Lizotte tell how type 3 diabetes is a newly accepted category, connecting a lifetime of damage caused by excessive blood sugar levels. With illustrations and graphics included, The New Threat of Type 3 Diabetes reviews the basic definitions of medical terms, the possible connections to prediabetes, type 2 and type 3 diabetes, and the steps that can be taken to prevent or reverse these diseases. Raguso and Lizotte suggest ways to make simple changes to live more healthily, better, and longer.
