Diabetes Risk Test

What is your personal risk for developing diabetes? Did you know the average American has a 1 and 3 chance of developing type 2 diabetes if they were born after 2000? Diabetes is becoming more and more prevalent as Americans’ lifestyles become more and more unhealthy. Although wellness is the new buzz word in health care, the sad fact is that the majority of Americans tend to choose prescription medication over changing their lifestyle and letting their body heal naturally. There are many studies that show lifestyle factors, including diet, exercise, and quality of life are stronger predictor of developing chronic diseases such as diabetes than family genetics. Although family genetics is definitely still an important factor. Interestingly diet choices, BMI, and waist circumference seem to be more important than the amount of exercise performed. Just as with family risk factors exercise is still important.

Do you want a quick predictor if you are at risk for developing diabetes? If you answer the questions honestly you can have a decent idea if you should be consulting with a healthcare provider about making those important lifestyle changes to lower your risk.
