23% of teens have either pre-diabetes or diabetes according to @AmerAcadPeds

Is Your Teen Overweight?

More and more doctors are referring teenagers to see a Registered Dietitian with their parent(s) for weight management. Most teens I speak with tell me they don’t even want to go, but do so reluctantly. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, 23% of teens have either pre-diabetes or diabetes. 

Are you an overweight teen? Are you a concerned parent? Participate in physical activities and learn all you can about healthy cooking and eating right. Start your healthier diet and lifestyle today to prevent obesity-related diseases like diabetes.
