The American Diabetes Association estimates that the total national cost of diagnosed diabetes is over $174 billion per year. Further studies suggest that when additional costs for gestational diabetes, prediabetes, and undiagnosed diabetes are included, the total diabetes-related costs in the U.S. could be more than $218 billion.
The American Diabetes Association Alert Day is a one-day event where Americans can take charge of their health by taking the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
The Diabetes Risk Test asks simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risks for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. Based on the answers to the questions, the test shows users whether they are at low, moderate or high risk for type 2 diabetes. Contact your doctor to discuss if you are high risk.
