Take the Prediabetes Risk Test
You’re likely to have prediabetes and are at high risk for type 2 diabetes. However, only your doctor can tell for sure if you do have type 2 diabetes or prediabetes (a condition that precedes type 2 diabetes in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal). Talk to your doctor to see if additional testing is needed.
Type 2 diabetes is more common in African Americans, Hispanic/Latinos, American Indians, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
Higher body weights increase diabetes risk for everyone. Asian Americans are at increased diabetes risk at lower body weights than the rest of the general public (about 15 pounds lower).
LOWER YOUR RISK
Here’s the good news: it is possible with small steps to reverse prediabetes – and these measures can help you live a longer and healthier life. If you are at high risk, the best thing to do is contact your doctor to see if additional testing is needed.
You are at probable LOW RISK for type 2 diabetes, and therefore, do not have a need to participate in the Diabetes Prevention Program.
