Are You at Risk for Type 2 Diabetes?
One in three American adults is at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, which is why AIHFS is participating in American Diabetes Association Alert Day® On March 28 we encourage you to take a quick (and anonymous) one-minute Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test to find out if you’re at risk.
An estimated 86 million American adults have prediabetes, which means they have blood glucose (sugar) that’s higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Prediabetes is reversible, and knowing your risk is the first step.
Please make sure to mark your calendar for American Diabetes Association Alert Day on March 28 and take the Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test. To schedule an appointment with your Primary Care Provider with AIHFS, please call (313) 846-6030.
