Diabetes is called a "silent killer"because people can have it for years and not know they have it. Nearly 24 million people in the US are diabetic and 57 have pre-diabetes. The number of people developing diabetes continues to grow.
The good news is that once diagnosed, diabetes is a disease that can be successfully managed. However, if it is ignored, over time it can destroy the organs of the body.
Don't put it off, it takes less than a minute to take the risk test!
