Am I at risk for Prediabetes or Type 2 Diabetes?


You are at increased risk for developing prediabetes and type 2 diabetes if you:

  •  Are 45 years of age or older;​

  •  Are overweight;

  •  Have a family history of type 2 diabetes;

  •  Are physically active fewer than three times per week:

  •  Ever had diabetes while pregnant (gestational diabetes) or gave birth to a baby that weighed more than 9 pounds.

If you think you may be at risk, a health care provider can do a blood test to see if you have diabetes or prediabetes.
