Today is American Diabetes Association Alert Day

Source: American Diabetes Association Website
The American Diabetes Association Alert DaySM is a one-day "wake-up" call asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

This year, beginning on Diabetes Alert Day on March 22 through April 22, we are rallying one million people to "Join the Million Challenge" by taking the Diabetes Risk Test.

The Diabetes Risk Test asks users to answer simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risks for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. The Diabetes Risk Test shows users whether they are at low, moderate or high risk for type 2 diabetes. If an individual is at high risk, he or she is encouraged to talk with their health care provider.

Now is your chance to be a part of the movement to Stop Diabetes®. Take the Diabetes Risk Test for free (in English or Spanish) in one of three ways:

• Take the Diabetes Risk Test in English or Spanish
• Call 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383)
• Text JOIN to 69866 (Standard data and message rates apply)
