“We have to amputate your legs. Today.”That’s what the doctor told me as I lay in a hospital bed.
The blinding, florescent lights buzzed overhead, and my nostrils filled with that bleach hospital smell, overpowering me in the cramped, chilly room.
My wife squeezed my hand, tears streaming down her cheeks.
“No,” she cried. “He can’t live the rest of his life in a wheelchair.”
“Without the amputation,” the doctor told me, “you’ll be dead within a year.”
I couldn’t believe it. My passion had always been hiking, and my wife and I had dreamed of one day hiking the Appalachian Trail.
But 4 years ago, the doctors wanted to put me under anesthesia, and cut off my legs… leaving nothing but worthlessstumps.
All because I was one of 115 million Americans with
prediabetes or diabetes…
…the disease that ran rampant through my body, thrashing the blood vessels in my limbs, until it practically cut off the circulation to my legs.
The doctor made it clear that if he didn’t amputate, my legs would rot like spoiled meat.
So what happened? And why am I telling you this?
I’ll answer the second question first.
My name is David Andrews, and I’m telling you this because…
“I don’t want you to go through the same horrifying experience that I did.”
Now, when all this happened, I didn’t know all that much about this debilitating and potentially deadly disease.
But now, I’ve done my homework. And in my research, I’ve uncovered some eye-opening — even shocking — facts. But I’ve also found hope for folks like me, folks who have diabetes.
Now, a lot of folks act like I did when I got diagnosed with diabetes. We let the statistics go in one ear, and out the other. But this is important. Because every single person represented in these statistics is someone like you and me. A mother, a father, a sister, a brother, a son or daughter. Grandparents. Friends. Neighbors. Coworkers. Loved ones. You. Me.
We don’t think we’re going to become a statistic. But that’s what this horrible disease does to folks like us.
Like the stat I was being faced with that day at the hospital: did you know that every day, over 200 people with diabetes have a limb amputated? That’s over 70,000 per year.
Even more distressing, 1 in 4 didn’t know they had diabetes until it was too late.
But worst of all, amputation isn’t even the most dangerous part of uncontrolled blood sugar… You may or may not know…
…diabetes also leads to Alzheimer’s, dementia, heart failure, and cancer;
When you have excess glucose, your blood becomes a nutrition-packed smoothie for cancer tumors, helping them grow at deadly speeds.
That’s why the Harvard Medical School Cancer Center has warned that up to 80% of all cancer is at least partially caused by imbalanced blood glucose and insulin.
But it doesn’t end there…
A study published in the medical journal Neurology found that diabetes “almost doubled the risk of dementia.”
Your glucose-packed blood constantly rushes through your brain, adding to the buildup that causes Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia. When I read that, I had trouble not imagining it happening inside my own brain.
As I kept reading about my disease, it only got worse:
One study showed that if you’ve got diabetes, your risk of heart attack is 11 times higher than the average person. At my age, I already had to worry about heart attacks. It was terrifying to learn that my risk was so much higher than I thought.
Another found that diabetes increases your risk of having a stroke by 150%. And during a stroke, diabetes makes it even harder for blood to get to your brain.
For most people, a stroke has about a 17% chance of being fatal…
But if you’re diabetic, a stroke is almost a 100% death sentence.
I knew Type 2 Diabetes was bad, but it wasn’t until I found these stats that I realized just how deadly of a situation I was in.
So if high blood sugar and Type 2 Diabetes are so deadly…
“Why do most doctors prescribe treatments that only manage the symptoms… while ignoring the real cause of the disease?”
Especially when new research has revealed the real cause of diabetes, and provided a simple solution to “jumpstart” your body’s blood glucose regulation system!
(The short answer is that in the last few years, 11 pharmaceutical giants have been caught bribinghospitals and doctors to prescribe their medicine, regardless of the best treatment. But I’ll share those details with you in just a second.)
First, I want to tell you the story of my own diabetes battle, and show you the new scientific discoveries you can use to restore your healthy blood sugar and even reverse your Type 2 Diabetes.
It’s all thanks to a rogue diabetes researcher named Dr. Roy Taylor, who solved a decades-old medical mystery
