The CDC has released a new estimate stating that one hundred and five million Americans are affected by diabetes or pre-diabetes with over 1.9 million cases found each year; this is over 1/3 of the country. Over $174 billion is spent on diabetes diagnosis and treatment every year.

Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the US. It is a systemic disease that can cause blindness, heart disease, stroke, erectile dysfunction, kidney disease and nerve damage.

If you are over 45, overweight, and have a family history of diabetes extra care needs to be taken to prevent the development of the disease. It's suggested that everyone get regular exercise and maintain a healthy diet. Diabetes is a serious risk and only you make the effort necessary to prevent it.

If you are concerned about your risk of developing diabetes please see your Doctor as soon as possible for a proper examination and health assessment.

The results of the surgery were astonishing, and after an amazingly short healing process, I had none of the incontinence or impotence that, unfortunately, is too often side effects of old-fashioned surgery...

I am pleased and proud to add my comments to the patients list of success stories. I had been affected by BPH (growing prostate) for 10 years.
