At Risk For Type 2 Diabetes?

Posted on March 13th, 2018

One in three American adults is at risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes, which is why Gwinnett, Newton, and Rockdale County Health Departments are partnering with Diabetes “You Can Win” Foundation to participate in American Diabetes Association Alert Day®.

On March 27th from 10AM – 2PM, there will be two events hosted locally for Diabetes Alert Day. We encourage you to come to either the Norcross Health & Human Services building located at 5030 Georgia Belle Court in Norcross or the Centerville Community Center at 3025 Bethany Rd in Snellville to take a Risk Test and an A1C test to find out if you’re at risk. 

An estimated 86 million American adults have prediabetes, which means they have blood glucose (sugar) that’s higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Prediabetes is reversible, and knowing your risk is the first step.

Please mark your calendar for American Diabetes Association Alert Day on March 27th and take the Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test.
