You can help prevent type 2 diabetes

To help prevent type 2 diabetes, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Medical Association have created a toolkit that health care teams can use as a guide to screen, test and act today by referring patients to in-person or online diabetes prevention programs.

The AMA and CDC urge you to:

Screen Test Act
patients for prediabetes using the CDC Prediabetes Screening Test (or the American Diabetes Association Diabetes Risk Test)
patients for prediabetes using one of three blood tests
to help prevent diabetes by referring patients with prediabetes to a diabetes prevention program

See how a practice like yours is screening,
testing and acting today to prevent diabetes.
