Obesity is an epidemic in the United States and many other countries. The obese pay a terrible price for their condition in the form of pre-diabetes or diabetes. Gretchen Scalpi, RD, CDE believes that a diagnosis of pre-diabetes does not automatically mean a life sentence of diabetes.
Two out of three American adults are within a weight range that can be classified as overweight or obese. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that 35.7 percent of adults in the United States were obese in 2009. Given the current trend it is expected that the number of people who will develop diabetes or pre-diabetes is going to continue to grow.
