MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 30 million Americans are living with diabetes.

Another roughly 84 million adults have pre-diabetes. That includes about 35 percent of the population in Minnesota.

As part of an effort to raise awareness around diabetes prevention, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota is launching a campaign called “Reverse It.”

The campaign includes a seven-question quiz to determine if you have pre-diabetes, which you can take by clicking here.

    BADLY. I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on June 26th, 2016. I started the ADA diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. Finally i began to panic and called my doctor, he told me to get used to it. He said I would be on metformin my whole life and eventually insulin. At that point i knew something wasn’t right and began to do a lot of research. Then I found Lisa’s diabetes story (google ” HOW EVER I FREED MYSELF FROM THE DIABETES ” ) I read that article from end to end because everything the writer was saying made absolute sense. I started the diet that day and the next morning my blood sugar was down to 100 and now i have a fasting blood sugar between Mid 70’s and the 80’s. My doctor took me off the metformin after just three week of being on this lifestyle change. I have lost over 30 pounds and 6+ inches around my waist in a month. The truth is we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods

    52% of adults in the USA have diabetes or pre-diabetes. This is the biggest epidemic in the history of the world. Do you still think that you should mindlessly trust your health care professionals and authorities? This epidemic has been building for a couple of decades, and they still do not have any answers. It is time for smart people to look and think outside of the box.
