One of the fastest growing diseases is one you can prevent
According to the Centers for
Disease Control, thereís virtually an epidemic of diabetes in the U.S.
and many cases are undiagnosed or in a pre-diabetes stage. But you can
do something about it because not only is diabetes controllable, itís
also preventable. Diabetes is a chronic disease in which blood sugar
levels are too high because of an imbalance in insulin, a hormone
produced by the pancreas.
