Stressed thirty year olds show rise in type 2 diabetes, researchers suggested this week at the American Medical Association's diabetes briefing in New York. Lee S. Sanders, DPM, president of health care and education for the American Diabetes Association stated that "Type 2 diabetes traditionally has occurred much later in adults - at middle age… now we're seeing it in children - and in those over 30." According to Mr. Sanders, new research shows an alarming increase of type 2 diabetes in those over age 30. He warned that this new data should be taken seriously because diabetes carries an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. "Too many people don't make that connection - that heart attacks, strokes, eventually blindness and even kidney failure - can result from diabetes."
