Diabetes Alert Day 2013
American Diabetes Association Alert Day®, observed annually on the fourth Tuesday
in March, is a one-day wake-up call to inform the American public about the seriousness
of diabetes, particularly when diabetes is left undiagnosed or untreated. Diabetes
Alert Day 2013 will be observed on Tuesday, March 26.
If you have a family history of diabetes, you could be at risk. In support of Diabetes
Alert Day, NDEP is encouraging you to take the diabetes risk test and learn about
your family’s history of diabetes.
Use these tools to learn more about your risk for type 2 diabetes and steps you
can take to prevent or delay the disease.
