What's your diabetes risk?

So, I realize that I was supposed to write about the different treatments for diabetes today, but that post is taking a little longer to write than anticipated, because there's SO MUCH COOL stuff to talk about!

So, in the interim, I want you all to go to this link, and take this 30 second quiz the ADA has set up to assess your risk for Type 2 diabetes (the most common form). Remember, Type 2 diabetes can often have a "silent" onset, so you might not even know you have it or that you are exhibiting any symptoms! This little test can help you know if you should start a conversation with your doctor about diabetes risk (even though they should be asking you about this anyway!).

Also, don't forget about World Diabetes Day, coming up on the 14th! And, if you haven't already, or even if you have, check out this video to help provided insulin to a child in need! Each time it's viewed, Roche will donate money to give insulin to children in need!

Happy Saturday!
