Do You Know Your Risk for Diabetes?
Did you know that more than 80% of people with prediabetes don’t know they have it?* March 22 is American Diabetes Association Alert Day®—a movement that challenges everyone to consider their risk of Type 2 diabetes. The Texas Associate of Counties offers Omada to help you build healthy habits and reduce your risk for diabetes, one small change at a time.
Know your risk for diabetes:
Are you 45 years or older?
Your risk for diabetes increases as you age, but there are steps you can take to prevent it.
Is Type 2 diabetes in your family?
Family history matters. If your parents, brother, or sister have diabetes, you may be at risk.
Physically active less than three times a week?
There's good news. You can prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes by making simple lifestyle changes, like moving more.
Good news: your health benefits from TAC can help.
