Exploring Prediabetes and Your Health – 5 Eyewitness News

In Minnesota, approximately 1.5 million people have pre-diabetes, but only one in four are aware of it. This means that a significant number of individuals are at risk for developing diabetes without even realizing it. The good news is that being diagnosed with pre-diabetes gives people the chance to take proactive steps to reduce their risk of progressing to full-blown diabetes.

To learn more about this issue, we had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Archelle Georgiou, a health expert from KSTP. Dr. Georgiou emphasized the importance of early detection and management of pre-diabetes in preventing the onset of diabetes. By raising awareness about this condition and empowering individuals to take control of their health, we can work towards reducing the overall prevalence of diabetes in Minnesota.
