The Diabetes Risk Test: Are You At Risk?
Calculate Your Chances for Type 2 or Pre-Diabetes
If someone you know has diabetes—particularly a family member—you're probably wondering whether you could develop it, too. The American Diabetes Association has revised its Diabetes Risk Test according to a new, more accurate statistical model. The updated test includes some new risk factors, and projects risk for pre-diabetes as well as diabetes. You can take the test below or at www.diabetes.org/risk-test.jsp. Then talk to your doctor if the results suggest you have or may develop diabetes.
