Are You At Risk?

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) launched its first risk test in 1993. The risk test was adapted by a published study and validated using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A person with a high score on the online risk test (five or higher) is at significant risk for having prediabetes. However, only a blood test can determine an official diagnosis.

Learn More About Diabetes

Learn about the types of diabetes, eating well and helpful tips on managing your blood sugar levels.

Prediabetes
Prediabetes:
Prediabetes is a warning sign that you are at risk for getting type 2 diabetes. It means that your blood sugar is higher than it should be, but not high enough to be diabetes.
Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 Diabetes:
Type 1 diabetes can occur at any age, but it usually starts in children or young adults. That's why it used to be called juvenile diabetes.
Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 Diabetes:
Type 2 diabetes happens when your body can't use insulin the right way. Over time, the pancreas can't make enough insulin.
Gestational Diabetes
Gestational Diabetes
Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar that first occurs during pregnancy. But with treatment, most women can control their blood sugar and have healthy babies.
