Video: Could You Be At Risk? American Diabetes Association 'Sounds the Alert' on March 25th - ADA's 20th Annual American Diabetes Alert(R) Day
Date:3/24/2008

ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Could you have diabetes? One in five Americans have a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, or may even already have diabetes. Because people can live for years without knowing they have diabetes, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) is issuing an urgent call-to-action for Americans to learn their risk for type 2 diabetes during the 20th Annual American Diabetes Alert Day. Awareness about diabetes can lead to early detection and treatment, which may help prevent type 2 diabetes or devastating complications associated with diabetes such as heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney disease, and amputation.

The Diabetes Risk Test, in English or Spanish, is available by calling the Association toll-free at 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383) or by visiting http://www.diabetes.org/alertnews.
