Talk to your doctor about screening or take the test and know your score!
If you are between 35 and 70 years old and are either overweight or obese, talk to your health care provider about being screened for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes [USPSTF citation
]. You can also complete the CDC Prediabetes Screening Test (citation
). This screener is used to assess risk for prediabetes, but it is not diagnostic. Answer these seven simple questions. For each "Yes" answer, add the number of points listed. All "No" answers are 0 points.
