It's time for a diabetes wake-up call.
Millions of Americans have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, but with the disease on the rise, even among children, it's very possible that millions more are afraid to find out.
To raise awareness, American Diabetes Association Alert Day is observed on the fourth Tuesday in March, every year. It is a one-day "wake-up call" from the American Diabetes Association, asking Americans to take the Diabetes Risk Test to determine if they are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
But why are we limiting increased awareness to just one day? Knowledge is power, all year round.
Sign the pledge to assess your risk for diabetes and take steps to prevent the onset of the disease.
Pledge to spread the word, take precaution, and learn about the importance of detecting if you are at risk of prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. Help raise awareness to family and loved one who may be at risk too, then sign the pledge to check yourself before type 2 takes over!
I pledge to...
- Take The Diabetes Risk Test, and share it with family and loved ones who might be at risk.
- Visit my doctor and learn about the risks of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes.
- Eat a healthy, diabetes-friendly diet, and to exercise at least 30 minutes a day.
- Raise awareness about the risks of type 2 diabetes, and how to prevent or manage a type 2 diagnosis.
Let's stop the promotion of unhealthy eating habits leading to a diabetes diagnosis in our kids!
