Medical diagnosis

Kelly Clarkson says a diagnosis about her health motivated her to make some new choices. During a recent segment on her daytime talk show, Kevin James, her guest, remarked on Clarkson’s current vibrant appearance.

The singer and talk show host has previously shared her experiences of walking in New York City, where she currently resides and her show is filmed, attributing it to her weight loss journey and enhanced well-being. Clarkson candidly revealed, “I was informed that I was prediabetic,” expressing her lack of surprise at the diagnosis. She acknowledged being slightly overweight and recalled being told, “You’re prediabetic, you’re right on the borderline.” “I was like ‘But I’m not there yet,’” Clarkson joked.

The singer and talk show presenter mentioned that it took approximately two years before she felt “prepared to take action,” yet she began heeding her doctors’ advice, modifying her diet, and engaging in more physical activity. According to the CDC, “prediabetes is a significant health condition characterized by elevated blood sugar levels, although not yet at the threshold for type 2 diabetes diagnosis.”

Clarkson humorously remarked, “There’s a significant distinction between being fit and losing weight — and I fall into the latter category.”
