Are You at Risk for Diabetes?
Last Updated December 14, 2022
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 100 million Americans have diabetes or prediabetes, a condition where a person already has elevated blood sugar and is at risk to develop diabetes.
Diabetes can cause serious health complications, including heart disease, blindness, kidney failure and lower-extremity amputations. It was the seventh-leading cause of death in the U.S. in 2017.
You can prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes by:
- Eating a healthy diet and managing your weight,
- Controlling your blood pressure and cholesterol,
- Staying active, and
- Quitting tobacco.
