Two-Minute Online Diabetes and Prediabetes Risk Test

In the U.S., 24 million people have diabetes, mostly type 2.  That’s one in 10 adults.  The number for those over 60 is two in 10. 

Fifty-seven million have prediabetes; that’s one of every three adults.  Most of them are unaware of it.

The American Diabetes Association offers an online diabetes and prediabetes risk assesment.  The Centers for Disease Control says one of every three people born in 2000 will develop diabetes.   A few risk factors are age over 45, family history of diabetes, sedentary lifestyle, and overweight or obese.  Why not recommend the test to someone you know who may be at risk?

  1. Dear blog author. I often read your blog on an iPad, and I personally don’t like that experience since WordPress has introduced the iPad theme (see for details). Unfortunately I can not opt-out to see your blog in its full splendor. Could I kindly ask you to consider whether you really like the way it looks on the iPad, and maybe turn off the iPad theme? This would certainly make my browsing experience much more pleasurable. Thanks a lot!
