Yes, You Can Prevent Diabetes


By Mary Schroeder, Extension educator and registered dietitian

November is American Diabetes Month, the perfect time to find out if you are at risk for type 2 diabetes.

About 1 in 10 people in the United States have diabetes, and more than 1 out of 3 adults have prediabetes. The 84 million Americans with prediabetes have blood glucose (sugar) levels that are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Unfortunately, 9 out of 10 adults who have prediabetes don't even know it.
