American Diabetes Association Alert Day reminds us to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out about our risks for developing type 2 diabetes.

This is important. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Every 17 seconds, someone is diagnosed with diabetes.
  • Diabetes kills more people each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined.
  • Recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes in 2050.

Get the facts about diabetes here and encourage your friends and family to take the Diabetes Risk Test here.
