Yeah, it might sound crazy, but according Dennis Thompson of HealthDay News, the diabetes epidemic in this country is so out of control that doctors are beginning to see patients with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. They’re calling it “Double Diabetes.” Here’s more:
An estimated 20.8 million Americans -- or 7 percent of the population -- are now believed to be diabetic. Of those, 6.2 million people have the disease but don't know it. And that doesn't include the 41million people with pre-diabetes, a condition in which blood-glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes…
…Generally, double-diabetes sufferers will often look as though they have the more common type 2 version because they're overweight. But subsequent blood tests reveal they also have type 1 disease.
