Do you know what day March 27, 2018 is?  It is an important date!  It is Diabetes Alert Day!

You may be asking yourself, “Why is this important to me?”

One in three Americans are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, a serious disease that can lead to complications such as kidney disease, blindness, and amputations.  But the good news is that diabetes does not have to be permanent, it can be prevented or delayed with healthy lifestyle modifications.

You can take the diabetic risk test to determine if you are at risk and should consult with your physician.
