84 million Americans Unaware of Their High Blood Sugar Levels

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Sept. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "More than one-fourth of all Americans

may have dangerously high blood sugar levels and do not know it," says international health pioneer, Dr. Patricia Bragg, CEO of Bragg Live Food Products. (www.Bragg.com) "This often leads to type 2 diabetes, but there are simple things everyone can do right now to get healthy again!"

Dr. Bragg is the author of 10 'self-health' books, including the best-selling the Bragg Healthy Lifestyle, (www.Bragg.com), which provides a blueprint for healthy eating and exercise. Her company was founded by her father, Dr. Paul C. Bragg, the originator of health food stores in America in 1912.  

"I am deeply concerned by the article just released by the Harvard University Medical School Journal that includes a US Center for Disease Control (CDC) finding that more than 84 million Americans may unknowingly have higher-than-normal blood sugar levels," Dr. Bragg says. "This is a potentially deadly precursor to type 2 diabetes." 

An estimated 30 million Americans already have type 2 diabetes and that number is expected to double in the next 25 years, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). 

"The health results will be catastrophic unless we act now," says Dr. Bragg. "Most of us can lower our blood sugar with diet and exercise changes.  By 'diet' I don't mean eating less, I mean eating real, natural and organic foods, not sugary, fried 'fat foods'."  The ADA report also pointed out that natural products such as apple cider vinegar can also help reduce blood sugar. The Bragg Company has produced organic, raw, apple cider vinegar with the "mother" for decades.

The author of the study cited by the ADA, Carol Johnston, associate director of the nutrition program at Arizona State University, told the Washington Post that vinegar helps regulate glucose levels.  "There is substantial evidence that consuming vinegar can help keep blood sugar under control," the Post reported.

Type 2 diabetes increases the risk of heart, stroke, kidney and vision failure, amputation of toes, feel or legs and even early death, according to the Harvard report.

"We can do much to prevent it," says Dr. Bragg. "We just must remember we are captains of our own health!"
