You May Have Prediabetesâ€"And Not Even Know It

Well, this is scary: One in three Americans has prediabetes—and without intervention, 70 percent of those people will go on to develop type 2 diabetes.

"Ninety percent of the people with prediabetes don't know they have it, but if they were to go in to their doctor and get their blood tested, they would find out they're at risk," says Sean Duffy, CEO of Omada Health, which offers a research-based online diabetes-prevention program called Prevent Now.

If you're at risk for type 2 diabetes, you can take action to make sure you never get the disease, says Duffy—but knowing you're susceptible isn't always so easy. "There are so few symptoms," he says. "Very few people know about them."

Wondering if you're at risk? Omada Health offers a quick 30-second questionnaire about factors like your age, your family history, and your activity level to help you get a ballpark estimate of your likelihood of being prediabetic. Take the quiz now.
