Take the Diabetes Risk Test—and forward the link to a friend.
Here’s a tragic fact: 86 million adults in the United States have prediabetes, and 90 percent of them don’t know they have the condition. This is an alarming statistic that could have a devastating effect on our individual and collective well-being. If not addressed, 15 to 30 percent of those with pre-diabetes will develop Type II diabetes within five years.
Can you help us reverse the trend?
Awareness and diagnosis are the keys to catching this horrible condition. Once people learn their blood sugar levels they are much more likely to make lifestyle changes to avoid a full-blown onset of the disease.
BioIQ is an advocate of knowing your numbers. Based on our experience implementing health screening programs for thousands of organizations and millions of people, we know that diabetes screenings are often a wake-up call for triggering lifestyle changes and getting treatment. It all began ten years ago, when a close friend and mentor to BioIQ’s founders died suddenly due to complications resulting from an undiagnosed diabetic condition. This preventable medical tragedy became the turning point that launched the company.
Since that fateful day, BioIQ’s mission has been to connect people and populations with solutions to measure their risk for diabetes, heart disease and cancer. We help people detect critical diseases through regular screening—often before symptoms occur.
Today we encourage everyone to take the risk test, a free service from the American Diabetes Association and its partner organizations. It’s not a blood test—just a simple questionnaire. But it can reveal the need for further testing, and has the potential to save many lives.
Find out where you stand—and forward this link to people you love, especially if you think they exhibit the risk factors that you’re about to learn about. Help spread awareness and share the risk test, which will help you learn if you’re at risk for diabetes—and hopefully help many of those 86 million people start living a healthier life.
