?Could you have diabetes and not know it?? That?s the teaser question posed in the ?Diabetes Risk Test? on the World Wide Web. Created by the American Diabetes Association, this 7-question quiz is designed to help individuals get a quick handle on their chances of having diabetes. As the opening information notes, diabetes is more common in African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders. ?If you are a member of one of these ethnic groups, you need to pay special attention to this test.?
The test is easy to take. To do so, go to www.diabetes.org, and click on ?Basic Diabetes Information.? When that page appears, look for ?Click here to take a Diabetes Risk Test.?
