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 theType 2 Diabetes Risk Testto 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.
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’sDiabetes Alert Daylanding page.

and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and the Centers for Disease
