Thesis: 25.8 million people suffer from type 2 diabetes due to low levels of physical activity and high levels of calorie consumptionThis article provides research about the growing epidemic of type 2 diabetes, addresses how it can be prevented, and discusses possible interventions to reduce the burden of diabetes. According to the article, “over 90% of diabetic cases are diagnosed as type 2” (Pratley). The prevalence of diabetes is increasing due to overeating (specifically high levels of sugar consumption) and low levels of physical activity. If excessive calorie consumption occurs, diabetes will then develop into obesity: “85% of type 2 diabetes patients are overweight or obese” (Pratley). Both obesity and diabetes have grown into epidemic proportions and are best treated if preventive measures are taken. Unlike type 1, type 2 can be preventable by reducing calorie intake and increasing physical activity. These simple lifestyle adjustments are both safe and cost effective. Although it may be challenging, proper nutrition and exercise will help to promote health and reduce the risk of diabetes and diabetes related disorders. Overall, the article did a good job in emphasizing the long-term effects of diabetes, while addressing the challenges faced with early prevention. The information in this article is credible since the source is a medical doctor. The article was well organized into different sections making the information clear and easily
