Pre-diabetes awareness not happening (USA)

Most people are not aware if they are pre-diabetic and most who know they are are not doing anything about it, U.S. health officials found. Study leader Linda Geiss of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta said survey data indicates almost 30 percent of U.S. adults age 20 and older had pre-diabetes, a metabolic syndrome - but only 7.3 percent were aware of their pre-diabetes status. - UPI
