Are You at Risk for Type 2 Diabetes?

The questions in this assessment ask about risk factors. These are conditions that may put you at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) says that the more risk factors you have, the more likely you are to develop diabetes. This tool can tell you only about your likelihood to develop type 2 diabetes. It cannot tell you definitely whether or not you will develop diabetes.


This assessment is not intended to replace the evaluation of a health care professional.
