29.1 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, which is the 7th leading cause of death in the United States. Type 2 Diabetes can be prevented when discovered early and lifestyle changes are made, which is why it is recommended that all adults age 45 and over get screened for diabetes.
Diabetes is a chronic disease that has no cure and can cause many serious complications such as eye disease, kidney failure, and nerve damage that can lead to amputation. Having diabetes also significantly increases your risk of stroke and heart disease. Most people with type 2 diabetes live with it for years without realizing that they have it.
Our diabetes screenings are designed to help you identify diabetes early, so you can begin to make healthy changes that reduce your risk for serious health complications. Learn more about risk factors, warning signs, diabetes screenings and what to expect at a screening.
