TODAY IS AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION ALERT DAY®

1966903_10152032890619033_316741511_nAmerican Diabetes Association Alert Day® is a one-day “wake-up call” asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

Today, Tuesday, March 25, 2014, is Alert Day.

The Diabetes Risk Test asks users to answer simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risk factors for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes. Preventive tips are provided for everyone who takes the test, including encouraging those at high risk to talk with their health care provider.

For every test taken, Boar’s Head Brand® – a leading provider of premium delicatessen products – will donate $5 to the American Diabetes Association starting March 25 through April 25, 2014, up to $50,000.

American Diabetes Association Alert Day is also nationally supported by Walgreens.

For more information on  American Diabetes Association Alert Day® or the Diabetes Risk Test, read the American Medical ID blog post dated Feb. 27, 2014 or visit American Diabetes Association.

The Medical IDs are usually worn as a bracelet or a necklace. Traditional IDs are etched with basic, key health information about the person, and some IDs now include compact USB drives that can carry a person’s full medical record for use in an emergency.
