Are You at Risk for Diabetes?
Diabetes comes in three major forms: type 1, type 2 and gestational – and one in four people with diabetes have no idea they even have it. To help you your risk for developing diabetes, we have provided a list of questions below:
- Do you have a family member with diabetes?
- Are you over age 40?
- Are you a woman who has had gestational diabetes or given birth to a baby over 9 lbs?
- Are you overweight?
- Are you under age 65 and get little or no exercise?
If you've answered yes to two or more of these questions, we recommend talking to your healthcare provider.
