America’s ever-expanding waistline has a new belt to try on-- the diabetes belt. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has identified 15 states and 644 counties that led the country in above average rates of diabetes. Fox’s WTVT in Florida has a map of the region...
" Our state is one of 15 that the government scientists are calling "the diabetes belt"--it stretched from Pennsylvania down to Florida and over to Texas. More than 600 counties in those states have a diabetes rate higher than the national average.”
The national average is around 8.5 percent-- those states are all above the 11 percent mark. CNN notes-- the study found four major factors that really set the region apart.
“• ... substantially more non-Hispanic African Americans... about 23.8% for the diabetes belt, while the rest of the country was at 8.6%.
• Prevalence of obesity was greater ... 32.9% vs. 26.1%.
• Sedentary lifestyle was greater ...30.6% vs. 24.8%....
• And the proportion of people with a college degree was smaller in the diabetes belt.”
Scientific American says this study is important because it breaks down the issue not just by state -- but by county -- and that reveals what might otherwise get lost in the larger picture.
“... states such as Colorado can have low levels of diabetes overall (7.1 percent), the average can be misleading because super-low counties (such as Pitkin County's 4.5 percent) can cover up those with sky-high rates (such as Crowley County's 14.1 percent).”
The study hypothesizes why this particular southeast region might have such increased levels -- citing the four main factors and the fact that the area used to be mainly agricultural. But TriCities**** says that the study isn’t revealing anything new.
“So we've got high diabetes rates because we eat a lot of food -- a habit that got started when everyone worked out on the farm -- and don't get much exercise. Sometimes its nice to have a reporter from the L.A. Times and a team of scientists ... tell you something that we already knew...”
The purpose of the study is to point out exactly where more preventative measures should be taken against type 2 diabetes. The LA Times discusses some of the region’s previously established belts -- the stroke belt and the obesity belt -- and says they all have a lot in common
“Much of its is simple demographics: Ethnicity and age are key factors in a person's risk of developing diabetes.... The overlap among the stroke, obesity and diabetes belts is not exact, however, and the difference could point to other factors at work in this trio of health threats.”
The entire report--including the names of the 644 counties -- will be published in American Journal of Preventive Medicine in April.
