Held March 28, 2017, American Diabetes Association Alert Day is a day to sound the alarm about the prevalence of type 2 diabetes in American adults by asking America to take the American Diabetes Association Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test.
The free, anonymous risk test is available online or via a one-sided handout, and only takes a minute to complete. With questions such as “Do you have a family history of diabetes” and “Are you physically active,” participants can learn if they’re at risk for type 2 diabetes in 60 seconds. Nine out of 10 Americans most at risk for Type 2 diabetes don’t know it. Take 60 seconds to find out if you’re one of them. Knowing your risk is the first step toward a healthier life.
If you’ve been newly diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes you can receive your FREE information packets from the American Diabetes Association that includes 5 info packets on how to live well with diabetes, tasty and healthy recipes for you and your family, a monthly e-newsletter with tips, stories and resources, 6 free issues of Diabetes Forecast magazine, access to an online community and more.
