About the Prediabetes Risk Test

 

More than 84 million (1 in 3) American adults have prediabetes, a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough yet to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. What’s more, nearly 90% percent of those people don’t know they have it. Having prediabetes greatly increases the chance of developing type 2 diabetes and other serious health conditions. It’s critical for Americans to learn their prediabetes risk, be screened regularly and take the steps necessary to delay or prevent type 2 diabetes.


The American Diabetes Association (ADA) launched its first risk test in 1993. The risk test was adapted by a published study and validated using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). To simplify the test, only health traits that people would know about themselves were included, such as age, height, and weight, but not blood sugar or cholesterol levels.

Acerca de la prueba de riesgo de prediabetes

 

Más de 84 millones de adultos en los EE. UU. (1 de cada 3) tienen prediabetes, una afección en la que los niveles de azúcar en la sangre son más altos que lo normal, pero no tan altos para que se diagnostique diabetes tipo 2. Además, casi el 90 % de esas personas no saben que tienen prediabetes. Tenerla aumenta enormemente la probabilidad de presentar diabetes tipo 2 y otras afecciones graves. Es esencial que las personas en los EE. UU. se informen sobre cuál es su riesgo de prediabetes, se hagan pruebas regularmente y tomen las medidas necesarias para retrasar o prevenir la diabetes tipo 2.

La prueba de riesgo se adaptó mediante un estudio publicado y se validó con datos de los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC). Para simplificar la prueba, solo se incluyeron características de salud que las personas sabrían sobre sí mismas, como la edad, la estatura y el peso, pero no se incluyeron el nivel de azúcar en la sangre ni el colesterol.
