Be on the alert, take the Diabetes Risk TestBy
The ADA Alert Day® — held on the fourth Tuesday of every March — is a one-day “wake-up call” asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
The Diabetes Risk Test asks users to answer simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risk factors for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. Preventative tips are provided for everyone who takes the test, including encouraging those at high risk to talk with their health care provider.
By taking the test, you can also help further the work of the ADA. Boar’s Head® – a leading provider of premium delicatessen products – will donate $5 for every test taken to the American Diabetes Association starting March 26 through April 9, 2013, up to $50,000.
Although Alert Day is a one-day event, the Diabetes Risk Test is available year-round.
