Take the first step

Knowing your risk for diabetes can make a huge difference.

Diabetes Risk Test

If your score is 5 or higher, you may be at risk for pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. TLC-MD provides lifestyle resources to help you maintain your health. After completing the test, pre-register to a class.

Prediabetes Screening

Question 1

How old are you?

You are at a higher risk for type 2 diabetes the older you are.

Question 2

Are you a man or a woman?

Men are more likely than women to have undiagnosed diabetes; one reason may be that they are less likely to see their doctor regularly.

Question 3

If you are a woman, have you ever been diagnosed with gestational diabetes?

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that develops during pregnancy. It goes away after pregnancy, but women who have gestational diabetes have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Question 3

Do you have a mother, father, sister, or brother with diabetes?

A family history of diabetes could contribute to your risk for type 2 diabetes.

Question 4

Have you ever been diagnosed with high blood pressure?

Having high blood pressure contributes to your overall risk for type 2 diabetes.

Question 5

Are you physically active?

Being inactive can increase your risk for type 2 diabetes.

Question 6

What race or ethnicity best describes you?

People of certain racial and ethnic groups are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than others.

Question 7

What are your height and weight?

The combination of your weight and height lets us know your Body Mass Index or BMI. People with higher BMIs are at a higher risk.
