      Understanding Diabetes

      This week on Action 4 Sunrise, we are focusing on the dangerous epidemic of obesity all week long.

      Research shows that if you are obese, you have a higher chance of becoming a diabetic.

      Ray Saldaa from the RGV Diabetes Association and Dr. Juan M. Garcia spoke about the disease and how you can stay ahead of it by seeking preventative treatment.

      A few statistics about diabetes: It is the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S., 17 million Americans are affected and the cost to treat it per year in the U.S. is estimated to be around $218 billion.
