Diabetes: A Personal Quest for a Cure Guest: Scott Summers, PhD, Professor and Chair of the Department of Nutrition & Integrative Physiology, University of Utah More than a third of American adults are walking around with a condition that amounts to a ticking time bomb. They have blood sugar levels higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. As a result, they’re at higher risk for heart disease, stroke and the various problems that come with full-blown diabetes.

It’s possible to be fit and active and still be surprised with a diabetes diagnosis in middle age.
