Think you're at risk of diabetes? Here's what you can do now.

Of the more than 30 million Americans who have diabetes, about 7 million don't even know it yet.1 If you think you might be at risk of diabetes, either because someone in your family has type 2 diabetes, you're carrying too much weight or you've been told you have "prediabetes," it's best to find out now, while you can take steps to prevent the disease from developing. In fact, research has shown that up to three in five people at risk of diabetes may be able to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes by losing weight, eating better and increasing physical activity.2 That means there are steps you...

Type 1 Diabetes

Previously known as "juvenile diabetes," because it primarily affects children, we now know that type 1 diabetes can affect people at any age. In type 1 diabetes, a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone necessary for the body to get energy from food.
