NDEP Survey Finds that Most People See Diabetes Risk Factors for Others, Not Themselves
Mar 12, 2010
Research has shown that type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed, so recognizing the risk factors for diabetes is critically important. In its second Survey of the Public’s Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices Related to Diabetes in 2008, the NDEP learned that while many people are aware of diabetes risk factors such as being overweight and physically inactive, people do not recognize their personal risk for type 2 diabetes.
NDEP encourages everyone to know their risk for type 2 diabetes and to take the risk test.
