At least 1 in 3 American adults have pre-diabetes, putting them at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Nearly 90% of people with prediabetes don’t even know they have it.
Prediabetes can be reversed through weight loss, diet changes and increased physical activity. The first step is evaluating your risk so that you can take action as soon as possible.
No matter how busy life may be, you owe it to yourself to take a one-minute risk assessment test.
