New Survey Shows Majority of Americans Need to Take Proper Steps to Manage Diabetes Risk
Date:11/24/2008

tes and should be tested -- based on American Diabetes Association (ADA) guidelines. According to the ADA, people 45 years and older, and those who are younger than 45, are overweight and have one additional risk factor, such as high blood pressure or a history of heart disease, are considered at risk and should be tested.

Additional survey results show that minority populations, who often have a higher risk of diabetes, are among those groups in most need of support to meet the National Diabetes Goal. Findings show:

-- 42 percent of at risk Hispanics do not meet any element of the National Diabetes Goal while 44 percent of at risk African Americans did not meet any element.

-- 56 percent of Hispanics should be tested and 59 percent of African Americans are at risk for diabetes and should talk to their doctor about being tested.

-- Only 6 out of 10 at risk Hispanics recall being tested. And only 3 out of 10 at risk Hispanics claim to know their number.

"It is important for Americans, particularly the Hispanic and African American communities in our country, to get tested for diabetes," said Stewart Perry, Chair of the Board for the American Diabetes Association, another leading National Diabetes Goal Champion. "We also encourage people older than 45, and those who are younger than 45 but overweight or have additional risk factors to get tested. It's a simple step that can have profound positive benefits."

The National Diabetes Goal is supported by many of the nation's leading advocacy and business organizations, including the American Diabetes Association, American Association of Diabetes Educators, American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, American Optometric Association, Entertainment Industry Foundation, Food Marketing Institute, National Association of Chain Drug Stores, National Business Coalition on Health, and Revolution Health.
