Not even James Bond is immune to diabetes! (Reverse your risk before you end up like him)

by , 23 February 2015

You'd think James Bond could survive anything.

Bomb blasts… Gunshot wounds… Even deadly neurotoxins.

But it appears not even James Bond is immune to Type 2 Diabetes.

86 year old Roger Moore, who's starred in seven 007 movies, was diagnosed with the disease after his wife rushed him to hospital at the end of 2013.

Just last year, he admitted to feeling quite down about having to give up his beloved Martinis. But if he didn't, they could be the death of him!

So, if you think you're invincible just like James Bond, let this be a warning to you: Have your blood sugar checked or you could end up just like him!

If James Bond can suffer from Type 2 Diabetes, you can too...


After his diagnosis in 2013, Roger Moore went on a talk show and admitted to having the disease. He said he would miss the Martinis - that became famous only once Sean Connery started drinking them when he became Bond.

But the scary part for Mr Moore was that, after a series of tests, doctors told him that he’d been unknowingly suffering from the condition for some time. And that his lifestyle and his "taste" for Champagne hadn't helped in the slightest.

That's not uncommon though. According to sciencedaily.com, “nine in ten people with pre-diabetes don't know they have the condition”.

While being James Bond is a fantasty of many men, being able to drive and crash luxury cars, use high tech weapons and catch the bad guys, having the same disease as him is far from being "cool". 

As you can see, it's essential to take stock of your health and make sure your blood sugar isn't on a rollercoaster ride, leading you down the dangerous path of type 2 duabetes. 

So what do you need to do?

Recognise the signs of prediabetes; the precursor of type 2 diabetes


Essentially, if you have pre-diabetes, it means your blood sugar is abnormally high, but not high enough to be considered type 2 diabetes.

But, and here’s the big problem, often, pre-diabetes comes with very few symptoms. One of them is a skin condition called acanthosis nigricans, where areas like your neck, armpits, elbows, knees and knuckles start to darken, says the Mayo Clinic.

Other early warning signs, says Yahoo Health, include:

  • Feeling tired and sluggish after eating;
  • Craving carbs;
  • Being overweight – and unable to lose extra kilos;
  • Having a body shape that looks more like an apple than a pear;
  • And high blood pressure.

If you have these symptoms, get your blood sugar levels checked for diabetes. And start prevention action NOW!

65% of pre-diabetes develop full blown type 2 diabetes!

Don’t be one of them…

Here are tips you can use to keep type 2 diabetes out of your future


Here are three tips Dr Oz suggests you use to reverse pre-diabetes so your risk of developing type 2 diabetes decreases:

#1: Eat less beef:

“Simple, but it’s true – more beef on your plate equals more diabetes risk,” says Dr Oz. In fact, eating less beef can reduce your risk some 14%. The reason? Beef contains saturated fat – a “Food Felon that blunts your body’s ability to absorb blood sugar.”

#2: Avoid sweetener

Here’s a scary stat: “For every extra 150 calories’ worth of sweetener – the amount in a 12-ounce soda – consumed daily, diabetes prevalence jumped by 1%.” So avoid them and stick to limited amounts of natural sugar like those you find in fruit and spice.

#3: Go for a walk

Taking a 15 minute walk soon after you eat keeps blood sugar levels low and steady for the next three hours, explains Dr Oz. So make it a family ritual to take your dogs to the park after dinner. 

Being pre-diabetic doesn’t have to mean you WILL get diabetes. Take action today and avoid joining James Bond in giving up his beloved Martinis and ice-cream and suffering from this debilitating condition.
