29 million Americans have diabetes. One out of four of those people is unaware they have it. Since 2010, that number has risen by more than 3 million people. That's staggering.

Diabetes is what we are talking about. Those numbers are from a study by the Center For Disease Control and Prevention.

Ann Albright Ph.D., R.D. and director of CDC's Division of Diabetes Translation states that this new research is 'alarming and underscores the need for an increased focus on reducing the burden of diabetes in this country.' She goes on to say that this disease is 'costly in both human and economic terms.'

Country superstar Tim McGraw wants us to do something about it.

Take the challenge, get your results and take steps to reduce this problem.
