Today, March 27th, is the 19th annual American Diabetes Alert Day, and the American Diabetes Association is urging people who are overweight, physically inactive and over age 45 to take a test to help them determine their level of risks.
The test is available online at diabetes.org. The Risk Test includes questions about weight, age, lifestyle and family history. People who score 10 points or more on the test are at high risk for Type 2 Diabetes and are encouraged to see their doctor. You can also take the test by calling 1-800-342-2383.
