March 27, 2018 – Today is the American Diabetes Association Alert Day! Every year the American Diabetes Association issues a “wake-up call” to help people learn about the seriousness of diabetes, and to encourage everyone to take the Type 2 Diabetes Risk Test. One in three Americans is at risk for getting type 2 diabetes, which can lead to serious health problems like kidney disease, blindness, and amputations. You can spread the word by using #DiabetesAlertDay on social media to today.
