A report in a pediatric journal published yesterday shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to any of us. It shows 20 percent of adolescents in the U.S. and about 25 percent of Americans between the ages of 19 and 34 are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and other illnesses because their sugar levels run consistently higher than they should. Classified as pre-diabetes these folks are considered at risk of trouble down the road. Who knew that spending inordinate amounts of time in front of screens and away from physical activity and a diet consisting of a lot of fast food could be a problem? The newly released study says the results prove there’s a need for more prevention services. I hear plenty of messages encouraging all of us to get off the couch and get active in one way or another. It appears, if the study is right, that a lot of us aren’t paying attention. That’s the way I see it.
