Are You at Risk of Prediabetes?
Take this simple quiz developed by the CDC to find out.
More than 1 in 3 Americans have a condition called prediabetes, which means their blood sugar levels are too high, but not yet high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes.
It is estimated that 63% of Vermont adults have prediabetes and do not know it. If left untreated, prediabetes could develop into diabetes within five years. Knowing you're at risk of diabetes gives you a chance to take control of your health and take steps to prevent diabetes and other serious health problems.
