According to the American Diabetes Association, about 34 million people in the United States — both adults and children — are living with diabetes, and an additional 1.5 million people are diagnosed every year. Adding to the problem, approximately 88 million Americans have prediabetes, a condition that often develops into Type 2 diabetes if specific life changes aren’t made to stop the progression of the disease.

Establishing a healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise and a healthy diet is one of the most important components in controlling diabetes and stopping prediabetes from turning into Type 2 diabetes. If you have diabetes, the key to optimal health without complications is keeping your blood glucose level within your target range, and that starts with healthy eating habits.
