Take The First Step: Are You At Risk For Pre-Diabetes

Find out your risk for pre-diabetes. Answer these seven questions. For each “Yes” answer, add the number of points listed.

  1. Are you a woman who has had a baby weighing more than 9 pounds at birth? (if yes add 1 point)
  2. Do you have a parent with diabetes? (if yes add 1 point)
  3. Do you have a brother or sister with diabetes? (if yes add 1 point)
  4. Find your height on the chart below. Do you weigh as much as or more than the weight listed for your height? (if yes add 5 points)
  5. Are you younger than 65 years of age and get little or no physical activity in a typical day? (if yes add 5 points)
  6. Are you between 45 and 65 years of age? (if yes add 5 points)
  7. Are you 65 years of age or older? (if yes add 9 points)

Assess Your Risk By Adding Up Your Score

If you scored a 9 or higher, then you may be at risk for prediabetes or diabetes, and may qualify for the program. This does NOT mean you have diabetes. You will need a blood test to confirm if you have diabetes.
