Do you know your risk for type 2 diabetes?
As the saying goes, knowledge is power. This couldn’t be more true than when it comes to knowing your risk for type 2 diabetes and understanding what you can do to lower that risk.
Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they almost always have prediabetes – blood sugar levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.1 Because there are no clear symptoms of prediabetes, it’s possible to have it without realizing.1 In fact, of the estimated 84 million American adults who have prediabetes, nearly 90% don’t know it.2
As we move into the new year, you can learn more about your health by taking Higi’s Diabetes Risk Test, powered by the American Diabetes Association. All you need to do is visit a Higi Health Station, take the risk test and enter your email address in order to receive your risk results and recommended next steps. The best part? Taking the risk test takes less than two minutes of your time.
