Are You at Risk for Developing Type 2 Diabetes?

Diabetes is a serious disease that strikes nearly 30 million children and adults in the U.S., and more than a quarter of them - eight million - don't even know they have it. An additional 86 million have prediabetes, which puts them at high risk for developing Type 2 diabetes.

Unfortunately, diagnosis often comes seven to 10 years after the onset of the disease, after disabling and even deadly complications have had time to develop. Therefore, early diagnosis is critical to successful treatment and delaying or preventing some of these complications such as heart disease, blindness, kidney disease, stroke, amputation and death.
