Calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI)
BMI is a number calculated from a person’s weight and height. BMI provides a fairly reliable indicator of body fatness for most people and is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
Take the Prediabetes Risk Test
Prediabetes means your blood glucose (sugar) is higher than normal, but not yet diabetes. Diabetes is a serious disease that can cause heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, or loss of feet or legs. Type 2 diabetes can be delayed or prevented in people with prediabetes through lifestyle changes. Take the prediabetes survey to learn if you are at risk for prediabetes.
