"Researchers also found the excess risk for death, regardless of cause, for people diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at age 80 or older significantly decreased and was the same as those of similar age without diabetes.

Type 2 Diabetes is almost exclusively a lifestyle dependent disease.
It is also very tightly connected to the development of Alzheimer's...
Caught early enough, it can be reversed.
It's prevalence is growing at an alarming rate...
When it all comes down to it, anyone who develops this very nasty condition has done so as a result of way too much refined carbs...

You don't need a PhD in nutrition to make a decision to cut down on the refined carbs and have preventative blood tests annually to keep an eye on how things are going.
When is the last time you had your bloods done?
If you are getting them done, drop me an email and I will suggest some valuable tests that your doc may happen to overlook.
Better still do our Ageing Monitor questionnaire and get a report on your overall situation.
When combined with your bloods, you will have a very powerful understanding of your cellular health.
