Most Diseases Start Here…Fix It Now! Dr. Mandell

The most recent studies on gut bacteria and diabetes addresses Type 1 Diabetes. Previous research has already made the connection between a poorly maintained gut lining in the intestinal tract and diabetes.
Type 1 Diabetes is understood to be an autoimmune disease. In autoimmunity, the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks its own cells. This generates cell and tissue damage.Type 2 Diabetes is commonly associated with poor diet and inactivity. However, we are now finding evidence of autoimmunity in Type 2 Diabetes too The Alzheimer’s association states that the number of Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease is growing — and growing fast. An estimated 5.4 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease in 2016.
Of the 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer’s, an estimated 5.2 million people are age 65 and older, and approximately 200,000 individuals are under age 65 (younger-onset Alzheimer’s).
One in nine people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s disease.
By mid-century, someone in the United States will develop the disease every 33 seconds.
These numbers will escalate rapidly in coming years, as the baby boom generation has begun to reach age 65 and beyond, the age range of greatest risk of Alzheimer’s. By 2050, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease may nearly triple, from 5.2 million to a projected 13.8 million, barring the development of medical breakthroughs to prevent or cure the disease.
