#US Lifespan Decreases Due to #Health Issues

lifespanThe average US life span has decreased by a month in the last year. To what do we owe this sobering trend? The analysis of the reports points to suicide and violence but the big picture tells a different story. Stroke, kidney disease, heart attack, and diabetes makeup 50% of the conditions that led to the decreased life span. So what now? Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Dr. Chen have a solution with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Early diagnosis means a better prognosis. My solution is early diabetes diagnosis to significantly reduce the risk of diabetes complications. This is why my doctors and I founded the nonprofit, Dip a Stick for Diabetes and see if high blood sugar is in your home. Please donate to help the nonprofit makes needle-free glucose detection kits available.
