According to the CDC, 37.3 million people in the United States alone have diabetes. 8.5 million are undiagnosed with this disease.

Ursula Wilson, a board-certified diabetes educator, wants you to know if you are prediabetic it can easily be turned around with a few lifestyle changes.

“Eating healthy, exercising at least three to four times a week for thirty minutes. Getting that cardio workout in. Watching your carbs, a lot of people don’t realize what carbs are,” Ursula Wilson said.

Wilson also mentioned that diabetes can affect all of your body parts, and may lead to a bigger issue.
