American Diabetes Alert Day: Are You at Risk?

Today is American Diabetes Association® Alert Day®, a one-day “wake-up call” that asks the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Nearly 26 million adults and children in the U.S. today have diabetes – and seven million of these don’t even know it. This very serious disease can result in disabling and deadly complications if not diagnosed early. Find out if you are at risk by taking the free Diabetes Risk Test today at, on Facebook, or by calling 1-800-DIABETES (342-2383).
