NIDDK Health Information News
One in four Americans with diabetes doesn’t know they have it. Left undiagnosed or untreated, diabetes can cause serious health problems, including heart disease and stroke, nerve damage, and kidney disease. Are you at increased risk?
This March 28 is American Diabetes Association Alert Day®, a one-day wake-up call to share the seriousness of type 2 diabetes. Evaluate your risk for developing type 2 diabetes and learn how you can help prevent it with information from the NIDDK and the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP).


Am I at Risk?
Take the Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test to determine if you are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Once you have taken the test, discuss your results with your doctor at your next visit.


Do I Have a Family History of Diabetes?
Find out if you have a family history of diabetes. Take NDEP’s family health history quiz and find out what you can do to prevent type 2 diabetes in your family.


What Can I Do to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes? 

If you are at increased risk, you can make a plan to help prevent developing the disease with NDEP’s GAME PLAN To Prevent Type 2 Diabetes.


NDEP invites you to share information about diabetes risk and prevention with your community and loved ones. More information on type 2 diabetes prevention, diagnosis, and treatment is available on NDEP’s Diabetes Alert Day landing page.
NDEP is a joint program of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
