Today is Diabetes Alert Day…

Did you know today is Diabetes Alert Day?

The American Diabetes Association Alert Day is a one day “wake-up call:” asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test (CLICK HERE) to find out if they are at risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes.

For every Diabetes Risk Test taken, Boars Head (manufacturer of premium deli products) will donate $5 to the American Diabetes Association, starting March 27 and lasting through April 27, 2012, up to $50,000.

The Diabetes Risk Test asks users to answer simple questions, including those 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 high at risk to contact their heath care provider.
