This Silent Assassin Doubles Your Risk of Heart Attack and Stroke
...but more than half of those at risk don't even know it. How to tell if you are and what you can do about it.
By Frank Shallenberger, MD
As someone who cares about your health, you try to avoid sugar and refined carbs. You try to exercise.
But despite your healthy intentions, you may still be at risk for a heart attack or stroke. You see, there is a silent assassin stalking you.
This silent assassin kills 1 person every 10 seconds. And more than half of them never knew they were at risk. They never saw it coming.
So what is this silent assassin? It's diabetes.
Now I know what you're thinking. "I'm not at risk for diabetes." I hope that's true. I hope you're making the lifestyle choices that will lower your chances.
Maybe you're taking supplements like chromium, vanadium, or gymnema sylvestre to balance your blood sugar. They are very effective. I prescribe them to my patients and see excellent results with them.
But a healthy lifestyle and supplements may still not be enough to protect you. You may have a family history of diabetes ... you may have high blood pressure ... or high cholesterol ... or you may simply not get enough sleep at night.
They are all risk factors for developing diabetes.
You see, most people view diabetes as a disease where the pancreas is worn out. That's true. But there's a hidden cause that leads to the pancreas wearing out in the first place.
I'll explain what this hidden cause is in just a minute. But first I want to share how one of my patients avoided becoming a victim.
Antonio was 43 years old when he first came to see me four years ago. He complained of the two symptoms that I hear the most in my practice: being tired and overweight.
His insulin levels were elevated, and he was showing all the signs and symptoms of pre-diabetes.
He had no idea how to avoid getting the disease. But when he came to me, I showed him exactly what steps he needed to take to reverse the trend.
Antonio followed my suggestions closely and brought his insulin levels back to normal in just 3 short months.
Four Years Later, Antonio's Insulin Levels Still Look Great
Today, four years later, Antonio's insulin levels are normal. His cholesterol and triglyceride readings are at optimal levels too. And so is his weight.
But even more importantly, Antonio feels good. He has the energy of someone ten years younger.
So what did Antonio do? He fixed the hidden cause that was putting him at risk for type 2 diabetes in the first place.
So what is the hidden cause? It's low energy.
Now I'm not talking about feeling tired and rundown. It seems everyone feels that way these days.
When I say "low energy," I'm talking about low energy in your cells.
Having poor energy production not only puts you at risk for type 2 diabetes. Poor energy production also leads to many other serious problems, like obesity, heart disease, lung disease and even weak bones.
How Reduced Energy Production Can Ruin Your Health
As you may know, each and every one of your cells contains little "power plants" called mitochondria. And when these mitochondria produce energy efficiently, your cells burn fat well.
Burning fat is critical to our overall health. Our cells were designed to produce a whopping 80% of our resting energy from fat. They get the other 20% of our resting energy from glucose.

The problem with diabetics (and people who are on the road to diabetes) is they begin to lose their fat-burning capability. And losing your fat-burning capability results in two problems. First, you start to gain weight. And second and more importantly, your energy production drops dramatically.
But it gets worse. As your ability to burn fat and your energy production drops, your cells turn to the easy fix: glucose.
When your energy production drops, you can't get as much of your energy from fat. So your cells turn to the easy fix: glucose.
That's where insulin gets involved. Insulin stimulates the cells to produce more energy from glucose.
But here's the problem: As your pancreas pumps more insulin into your body, your body develops a tolerance to it. So the insulin is less and less effective. The less effective the insulin is, the more it takes to do the job. So your pancreas pumps even more.
Doctors call this condition "insulin resistance." Other terms are metabolic syndrome, syndrome X, and pre-diabetes.
Now you can start to see the viscous cycle that starts to develop. First, cells fail to produce energy well from fat. And then, they don't produce energy well from glucose. This means that they aren't producing energy well from anything!
After a few years, you find it harder to lose weight. You have less energy. And your blood sugar skyrockets.
Plus the pancreas gets tired from producing so much insulin and wears out. Eventually, this condition turns into diabetes.
But just remember this — it all started with decreased energy production.
How to Cure the Illness by Fixing the Root Cause
The good news is that when you reverse the problem, you can not only control type 2 diabetes, but eliminate it altogether! That's because you're not just "balancing your blood sugar" or "supporting your pancreas" — you're getting down to the root cause by improving your energy production.
And you can find out how to do this in my ground-breaking book, The Type 2 Diabetes Breakthrough.
