Do I Have Prediabetes?

November 22, 2019

More than 1 in 3 Americans have prediabetes, but only 10% know it. Use this quick screening tool to assess your risk.

Prediabetes is a health condition where your blood sugar (also called blood glucose) is higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. People with prediabetes also have an increased risk for stroke and heart disease.

Fortunately, with certain lifestyle changes related to food and exercise, people with prediabetes can often prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.

Take the Test

This screening test from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) will help you understand your personal risk for prediabetes, in 10 simple questions.

Share your results with your healthcare provider to learn what next steps you can take together, such as doing an A1C blood test.
