Diabetes Rates are Continuing to Increase

In the early 1990's waiting rooms were filled with people suffering from the long-term complications of diabetes. Some would be blind, some would have amputations and others would be on kidney dialysis.

Although the rates are steadily increasing there is progress being made. Improvements continue to increase in diagnosis, drug treatment, blood sugar control and overall diabetes management.

"I am optimistic, but I do think the problem is going to get worse before it gets better," says Ann Albright, director of the CDC's diabetes division. Trying to prevent this spread of diabetes is the key but it will take time and effort.

Statins Increase Diabetes Risk Substantially in Older Women

September 18, 2017 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

The link between statins and diabetes has been well-established for years now, but most studies have focused on the general population, without recognizing gender differences and the biological changes the body undergoes as we age.  Recent studies have begun to zero in on individual population cohorts, and we are beginning to understand that statins are particularly dangerous for certain people.

The Alarming Rate in the Increase of Prediabetes

March 03, 2016 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

The number of Americans with diabetes has increased four times over the past 30 years. In an effort to bring those numbers down, the Centers for Disease Control wants to bring awareness to prediabetes, a condition that affects 86 million people across the country, and is a precursor to type 2 diabetes. One of the reasons the CDC is bringing attention to prediabetes is that only 10% of people with the condition know they have it.

May 14, 2015 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

Diabetes and Unnecessary Medications for Elderly

August 26, 2014 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

Elderly Americans are among the most heavily-medicated demographic in the world.  Many of these medicines are necessary, contributing both to longer life and sustained quality of life. There is no denying the miracles of modern medicine, and how much worse off we would all be without it.  But, whenever there's profit to be made, there will be motivation for some physicians and drug companies to market medications that are not necessary.  At best, these medicines are placebos.  At worst, some of these medications even make things much worse.
