A recent study published in Diabetes Care documented that over the last few years the number of diabetics in the US with optimal blood sugar levels has decreased.

Part of the problem may be due to the problems with obesity and the prevalence of sugar in our diet. This needs to be addressed to keep diabetics healthy and functioning to the best of their ability.
