Why complications of type II diabetes killed DJ Frankie Knuckles and how you can avoid the same fate

by , 02 April 2014

Diagnosed in 2000 with type II diabetes, DJ Frankie Knuckles succumbed to his disease this week at the age of 59. This devastating news is felt by all who knew the “Godfather of House” whether personally or through his music. If you suffer from type II diabetes, use this time to reflect on your own health…

Type II diabetes is a deadly disease and the complications can be fatal

Having lived with diabetes for 14 years, complications claimed the life of world famous DJ, Frankie Knuckles. But he’s always battled with them…
In 2008, he lost his foot after he’d broken it while trying to snowboard in Switzerland. His foot just wouldn’t heal, and a while later he was diagnosed with diabetes. Doctors said they couldn’t save it and they amputated it. This is one of the most apparent signs of diabetes; your wounds fail to heal…
Imagine if you could throw away your needles, get off of insulin and never worry about blindness, amputation, or worse.

The Health Sciences Institute announces the "Medical Breakthrough of the Century"--From insulin dependent to NON DIABETIC in 6 weeks!?

So ask yourself... What's the first thing you'll eat when you're DIABETES-FREE?

Here are two of the more severe complications of diabetes to watch out for
1.     Heart failure: Ten years ago, 68% of people with diabetes died because of heart related issues, says WebMD. While death certificates noted that 16% of diabetics died due to stroke.
If you have type II diabetes, you’re four times at risk of developing heart disease! This because your arteries become hard because of the sugar that constantly flows around your blood stream. Controlling your diabetes can prevent further damage to your blood vessels and lower your risk of heart disease.
2.     Eye disease: High blood glucose wrecks havoc on your eyes. Not only does it cause cataracts and glaucoma to form it can also leave you blind! Studies show that 90% of cases of diabetes related blindness are preventable!
We hope Knuckles’ devastating story shows just how important it is to control your diabetes. If you don’t, it could be fatal!
