Columbia has a long way to go when it comes to diabetes treatment in men. That's the conclusion of a new study by Men's Health magazine.

They studied 100 major cities across the country. Columbia finished 92nd overall, earning a grade of "F."

Men's Health used a number of factors to reach its conclusion. Researchers looked at the number of diabetes cases in each city.

They also studied risk factor information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Those risk factors included obesity, high blood pressure, and physical activity.
