In my current job in the health field industry, I have noticed a drastic increase in the number of individuals who have Diabetes. Even more alarming is that children are developing diabetes in greater volumes as well.
Diabetes Mellitus results when the body doesn't produce enough insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels or when cells in the body don't respond appropriately to insulin.
People with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (insulin-dependent diabetes) produce little or no insulin at all. In contrast, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (non-insulin-dependent diabetes), the pancreas continues to manufacture insulin, sometimes even at higher than normal levels. However, the body develops resistance to its effects and the sugar in the blood does not enter the cells as well as it should, resulting in higher blood sugar levels. Type 2 Diabetes usually begins after age 30 and becomes progressively more common with age.
Research indicates that overweight people who have Diabetes suffer from a biological imbalance involving insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps your body use and conserve food energy in several ways: insulin tells your body when to eat, Insulin delivers food energy to wherever the body needs it, Insulin also commands the body to save food energy stored in fat cells for a time when no food is available. Many people produce so much insulin that their bodies are unable to absorb it all. The result of this is an excess of insulin in their bloodstreams. This imbalance leads to a cycle in which they experience overpowering cravings for carbohydrates, such as breads, pastas, and snack foods. The more carbohydrates that are consumed, the greater the amount of insulin the body releases. Fortunately carbohydrate addiction and insulin imbalance can be reversed so that you can lose weight and be healthy the rest of your life-without feeling deprived or struggling to manage your eating patterns.

To help reverse Diabetes naturally you must eliminate or reduce sugar, fructose, corn syrup, white bread, and maple sugar. People who regularly drink sugar-sweetened beverages are at a high risk for both Diabetes and Obesity.
