We need a solution.

According to Medical News Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that ten percent of the U.S population has diabetes. They also estimated that eighty-eight million have prediabetes.

Researchers from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health stated in their studies that people with diabetes in the U.S. have become significantly less successful at controlling their blood sugar. The study’s senior author, Dr. Elizabeth Selvin said: “These are concerning findings. There has been a real decline in glycemic control from a decade ago, and overall, only a small proportion of people with diabetes are simultaneously meeting the key goals of glycemic control, blood pressure control, and control of high cholesterol.”

Experts recommend that individuals that are at risk of diabetes maintain their weight and become more physically active. Doing this can help delay or prevent diabetes entirely. It is also necessary that people with diabetes continually check their blood sugar levels to make certain that it is within an acceptable level.
