No smidgens

It’s been estimated that when most folks are diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes that they've ALREADY lost close to 50% of their beta cells (the cells in the pancreas that make insulin).

It’s been estimated that a creatinine (a blood test for kidney function) of 2 (a normal level is about 1.0) means that an individual has ALREADY lost close to 50% of his/her functioning nephrons (the units in the kidney that filter blood).

The above fifty percents confirm that there's no such thing as a “touch of diabetes or a smidgen of renal failure.”
