By 2020 over 60% of all adults in America will be at risk for or suffer from, type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes or obesity, which are related to many of the leading causes of preventable death. That is the “diabesity epidemic.”
Until now, it has been popular opinion that the problem can be controlled with diet and exercise, but today’s science illustrates that the real problem for most people is metabolic
dysfunction—which is a medical condition, not a behavioral issue.
The Diabesity Institute (DI) is the only non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization focused on the science of the metabolic system and its fundamental role in type 2 diabetes and obesity.
