Risk of Diabetes comes with Early Puberty

Holy Hormones Journal:  

Science has now backed up the concerns that hormone imbalance is being passed down generation to generation. In addition, of course to estrogen mimickers in our environment – in addition to generations of synthetic hormone use.  All of these mimickers have been found in the umbilical cords of pregnant women. Hormone imbalance at an early age before the endocrine system develops its own rhythm – will beget more hormone imbalance which will lead to depression, anxiety, and eventually diabetes.

Early Maturation Can Increase Diabetes Risk for Girls, Study Reports

girls1Researchers reported that young girls who matured earlier than normal were 70 percent more likely to have type 2 diabetes in adulthood.

In a new study, researchers examined the effects of early maturation for young girls. The study, which observed women from eight European countries, found an association between early menstruation and type 2 diabetes risk. The researchers reported that girls who get their period earlier might be at a greater risk of getting type 2 diabetes in adulthood.

“The body is undergoing many changes during puberty,” said Cathy Elks, a research fellow at the MRC epidemiology unit at the University of Cambridge in England. “Our research, as well as previous related studies, suggests that the biological factors implicated in the timing of development may have a role in the development of type 2 diabetes, despite the fact that these processes occur many years before the manifestation of disturbed [blood sugar] control.”

Study was published in Diabetes Care.
