We talked with Dr. Chip Mainous about one of his latest articles regarding pre-diabetes prevention. Dr. Mainous is a professor and Vice-Chair for Research in the Department of Community Health and Family Medicine.

According to the CDC, prediabetes affects approximately one in three American adults, but 84% don’t know that they have it?
