Prediabetes
Assessment


This simple test lets you know if you’re at risk of diabetes. It only takes a moment. Find out if you are at risk and take the first step towards taking control.

 

There are no obvious symptoms for prediabetes, so you may be completely unaware of its development. If you are prediabetic, your blood glucose is raised above normal levels and you are more likely to become diabetic in the future. You may not suspect you are at risk of prediabetes, but there are factors that can indicate an increased risk. Finding out that you are prediabetic gives you the opportunity to take control of your blood glucose levels before it progresses to diabetes. Take the test and find out your risk.
