The following conditions are premorbid conditions. Because of the huge population of American’s experiencing one or more unhealthy conditions, along with an underactive immune system, their risk of infection and death is greatly increased. These conditions are directly related to the Standard American Diet (SAD) and a poor quality life style.
These unhealthy conditions are reversible with a change of diet and corrective lifestyle. With premorbid conditions, we are at a greater risk of other diseases.

TYPE 2 DIABETES
Effective therapy can prevent or delay diabetic complications. However, about 28 percent of Americans with diabetes are undiagnosed, and another 86 million American adults have blood glucose levels that greatly increase their risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the next several years.
