What’s Your Type 2 Diabetes Risk?

One in three American adults is at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, a serious disease that can lead to complications like kidney failure, heart disease, stroke, blindness, and amputations. But type 2 diabetes doesn’t have to be permanent—it can be prevented or delayed with healthy lifestyle modifications. The first step is learning your risk.

That’s why this year United States Medical Supply is participating in American Diabetes Association Alert Day®. On March 24, we encourage you to take a simple and anonymous one-minute test to find out if you are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. You’ll answer questions such as, “Do you have a family history of diabetes?” and “Are you physically active?” to learn your diabetes risk in 60 seconds. It’s that simple.

Once you’ve taken the test, share it with friends and family—with 84 million Americans at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, someone you love could be at risk.

This Alert Day, you may also consider giving back to the American Diabetes Association so more people can learn their diabetes risk. You can also learn more about this disease, how to prevent it, and how to fight back to help transform your life at diabetes.org/alertday.

We hope you’ll join us by learning your type 2 diabetes risk this year for Alert Day, and help others do the same.
