The 28th Annual American Diabetes Association Alert Day® will take place on Tuesday, March 22.

It’s a one-day “wake-up call” asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Questions revolve around weight, age, family history and other potential risks for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes.

Access your free Diabetes Risk Test (English or Spanish) via or by calling 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383).
