Today, March 22, is the American Diabetes Association Diabetes Alert Day.  Did you know that it is estimated that 89 million people have pre-diabetes and 90 % do not know that they have it.  If not treated, pre-diabetes will progress into diabetes.  The good news is that their are many things you can do to prevent the progression.  The first is to determine if you are at risk for pre-diabetes or diabetes.  This website offers you a self-assessment to find out if you are at risk, then armed with this knowledge you can monitor your blood sugar and make some small life style changes to reduce the risk.  Remember knowledge is power.
