American Diabetes Association Alert Day 2015

Take it. Share It. Step Out.

The American Diabetes Association Alert Day® is on Tuesday, March 24. Alert Day is a call to action, asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. 

More than a quarter of people with diabetes—8 million—don’t know they have it. 

The Diabetes Risk Test asks people to answer simple questions about their weight, age, family history and other potential risk factors for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. Preventive tips are provided for everyone who takes the test, including encouraging those at high risk to talk with their health care provider, eat more healthfully and get active.

You can be part of the movement to Stop Diabetes®! To get information about diabetes,
take the free Diabetes Risk Test (available in English or Spanish), and join or start a Step
Out team, visit diabetes.org/alert or call 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383).
