In 2012 I was diagnosed pre-diabetic following my first blood-work panel in 3 years. The words came as a shock, and my doctor was very adamant that my then current status and family history put me at higher risk for diabetes. He shared some averages and numbers and discussed placing me on medication to help regulate glucose. As scary as the conversation was, the cause of it was quite obvious; the more and more I looked at my diet in retrospect, I was not eating healthy. More importantly I was not drinking healthy.
How do you stay hydrated?
