More than 34 million people in the United States have diabetes, and 1 in 5 of them don’t know they have it.
More than 88 million US adults—over a third—have prediabetes, and more than 84% of them don’t know they have it.

Little things you do regularly, without thinking, may be seriously raising your risk.https://www.eatthis.com/health/
