On Behalf of Alliance Against Diabetes, I would like to express our gratitude to SNHD for their educational campaign called "Verano sin Sodas", "Summer With Out Sodas". Sugary beverages are a health hazard to all people, however, in diabetics they may be lethal. 

Let me explain what can happen to diabetics, during the summer months, if they indulge in “cold refreshing sodas”.
Last Tuesday afternoon, a 31-year-old Hispanic male, works in outdoor construction, came to our clinic requesting a prescription for Metformin. He was sipping from a very large big gulp, and his wife immediately told us that he was also drinking cokes all day. This young man was not one of our patients, so he was informed that we do not give metformin without a blood test for kidney and liver functions as well as homocysteine levels. During the intake interview the young man was nervous and incoherent. His blood pressure was an astonishing low 75/35 mmHg and his blood glucose over 600 mg/dL. Consequently, we informed him that he was extremely dehydrated and needed immediate treatment, and therefore he should go to a hospital. 

This young man was in lethal danger, he could lose consciousness, and his brain could swell due to the severe dehydration translated into low blood volume, hypovolemia. 
Hyperglycemia causes osmotic diuresis since the body is trying to rid itself of the excess blood glucose. Thus, when diabetics consume sugary drinks, blood glucose goes up and so does urine excretion. Furthermore, many sodas contain caffeine and salt, which increases osmotic diuresis and consequently dehydration and hypovolemia, thus the cause of the extremely low blood pressure. Our construction worker was nervous and incoherent; it is possible that he was developing cerebral edema. 
Many people believe that during hot weather, outdoor workers should hydrate with drinks such as Gatorade because “it contains electrolytes”. However, diabetics should stay away from these drinks, since they contain substantial amounts of sugar plus too much sodium and too little potassium. Given that normally, humans conserve sodium and excrete potassium, and modern diets are very high in sodium and very low in potassium, Gatorade is not recommended. In extreme dehydration, such as the one that we described above, many diabetics develop hypernatremia (high sodium) and hypokalemia (low potassium), these conditions may contribute to organ damage, especially kidney damage.  
I am attaching a download from the Gatorade web-page.

Scientific Congress 2020 Diabetes Melitus

Space exploration began first in Russia and then in the United States in the 1950s. Surprisingly, very soon, on July 20, 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the surface of the moon, and then, they returned, safe and sound, to the earth. It is much more difficult to reach the moon than to decipher the different pathways of glucose in the human body.

Today, in the United States, there are more than 19 million people suffering from diabetic neuropathy or other polyneuropathies neuropathies. In addition, millions suffer from kidney failure and are on dialysis. However, most diabetics die of heart disease, which are the most common complications of diabetes.

Between 2013 and 2014, the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), showed that 55% of all adults in California have diabetes or prediabetes, this figure is almost incredible since the population of the state of California is one of the healthiest in the United States. In other states, such as Texas, Louisiana, etc., and of course in all the big cities around the world, diabetes and prediabetes are much more widespread than in the state of California.

However, the epidemic of diabetes can be reversed, as it is also possible to reverse or prevent the development of all the pathological effects of diabetes: neuropathies, nephropathies, retinopathies, and cardiovascular diseases. Currently, no diabetic needs to contemplate dialysis, amputations, blindness, heart attacks or strokes as a natural result of diabetes.

It has been reported that there are more than 10 million scientific articles in the medical literature that have been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals in the scientific literature, and to these 10 million articles, over 8,000 are added every day, which amounts to about half a million per year.

Of this enormous volume of scientific articles, less than 5% are presented in medical schools, medical seminars, or used for medical recommendations. The rest of the scientific knowledge is published, but few people read it, and then it is forgotten. Today, in the new but forgotten treasures of the medical literature, we can find cures for almost all the afflictions of humanity. 

Over the last 20 years, "Alliance Against Diabetes" has been dedicated to the study of diabetes and the complications of diabetes. For 15 years, we have worked with some of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the quest to find a viable solution to diabetes. Unfortunately, we have realized that, for many different reasons, the solution will never come from the pharmaceutical companies. The solution lies in the enormous volume of scientific literature, constantly published around the world.

Since millions of people suffer from horrible diseases resulting from diabetes, and knowing that these sufferings can be eliminated or prevented from developing, we feel the moral obligation to share what we have learned in 20 years, applying scientific literature to clinical practice. 

We work with low-income people without health insurance. However, we have reversed hundreds of cases of neuropathies, prevented dialysis, improved vision and improved functioning of the heart in diabetics, reversed hypertension, reversed hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia.

Alliance Against Diabetes is organizing a seminar to share its successes and diabetes-related knowledge with interested healthcare professionals. The seminar will be held in English on February X, X and XX, 2020, at the organization's premises: 

If you are a medical professional, if you want to improve the lives and health of your patients, take advantage of this seminar!
