Tomorrow, March 26, 2013, is American Diabetes Association® Alert Day®. The ADA explains that their Alert Day® is a chance for Americans to take the Diabetes Risk Test, which is designed to help people find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. In particular, the American Diabetes Association is encouraging those over 45 and people who are sedentary and/or overweight to take the test. Why? Because people in these categories are at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes, but, “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 its complications such as heart disease, blindness, kidney disease, stroke, amputation and death.”
