Diabetes


Your Health Is in Your Hands

Participants in the Diabetes Prevention Program reduced their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58 percent through healthy lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise.

Diabetes is a health condition that starts in the pancreas, but its effects can quickly spread from head to toe. According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 24 million Americans have diabetes. But the scarier statistic is that almost 6 million people have the disease and don’t even know it. Diabetes increases your risk for heart disease, kidney failure, vision loss, nerve damage and more. The good news: You can keep the disease under control—and stave off its side effects—with healthy lifestyle habits. Take our diabetes assessment to find out whether you’re at risk and to make a prevention plan today.
Disclaimer: This assessment is intended to give you a general idea of your diabetes risk and is not intended for diagnosing or prescribing. No matter what your results, please share them with your physician, and be sure to consult your physician before undertaking any form of medical treatment or adopting any exercise program or dietary guidelines.
