Diabetes Alert Day – Is someone you love at risk for Type 2 Diabetes?

Diabetes Alert Day serves as a wake-up call to raise awareness about the risks and symptoms associated with diabetes in the US population. The focus is on understanding your risk for type 2 diabetes.

Did you know that approximately 37.3 million Americans (about 11.3% of the U.S. population) have diabetes? Additionally, 8.5 million Americans, or about 1 in 5 people, are unaware they have diabetes. Moreover, around 96 million people aged 18 or older have prediabetes, a condition where blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Unfortunately, more than 8 in 10 adults living with prediabetes don’t even realize they have it.

80% of people with prediabetes do not know they have it.

If you or someone you love is 35 years or older, it’s essential to get tested for diabetes and prediabetes. You can take a quick and simple Diabetes Risk Test online using the link included to assess your risk. Remember, the sooner you know your risk, the sooner you can take steps to prevent or manage diabetes. Let’s all take control of our health! 🌟🩸🌱
