Find your diabetes risk score with a simple test

  • Diabetes is a group of diseases that affect how your body reacts to blood glucose, also known as blood sugar.
  • Glucose is crucial because it is what gives energy and helps build cells and tissues. It also fuels the brain.
  • If you have diabetes, no matter the type, it means that your blood sugar is too high.
  • According to Mayo Clinic,Chronic diabetes conditions include type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Potentially reversible diabetes conditions include prediabetes — when your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes — and gestational diabetes, which occurs during pregnancy but may resolve after the baby is delivered.”
  • Could you have diabetes without knowing it? It is possible, as 1 in every 3 adults is pre-diabetic and has not yet been diagnosed.
  • The American Diabetes Association recently released a test that helps calculate your risk for diabetes.
  • The test asks a few questions about weight, family history, age, and other risk factors for type 2 diabetes. The results will provide you with a score indicating a low risk or high risk for diabetes.
