Diabetes Alert Day: What you need to know

Are You at Risk for Diabetes?

The American Diabetes Association and the Meriter Diabetes Care Team want to remind you that Diabetes is a serious disease that strikes nearly 26 million children and adults in the United States, and a quarter of them—7 million—do not even know they have it. An additional 79 million, or one in three American adults, have pre-diabetes, which puts them at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Recent estimates project that as many as one in three American adults will have diabetes in 2050 unless we take the steps to Stop Diabetes®.

In honor of Diabetes Alert Day, we challenge you to determine your risk by taking this quick assessment from the American Diabetes Association. Click here for the Diabetes Risk Test.
