7 in 10 Don't Realize Their Type 2 Risk

Many people who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes aren't aware of it, according to a survey conducted by the American Diabetes Association. Researchers called almost 1,500 people, ages 40 and older, and asked them about health factors related to type 2 diabetes risk, such as blood pressure, cholesterol, and physical activity. Seven out of 10 people who had type 2 diabetes risk factors did not realize they were at risk.
