Diabetes Risk Assessment

Take the first step by learning about your risk.

Every 30 seconds, a new case of diabetes is diagnosed in the U.S. Ninety-five percent are a type 2 diagnosis, the most frequent diagnosis among adults.

Recognizing early warning signs and risk factors that lead to type 2 diabetes is critical to preventing diabetes before it starts. We can help you learn more about your individual risk factors so you can take charge of your health and reduce your risk.

Knowing your individual risk factors can help you delay or avoid developing type 2 diabetes.

Call (405) 271-2824 to request a paper health assessment be mailed to you.

If you are at risk, the first step is to see your doctor to find out if additional testing is needed.

Diabetes Symptoms and Warning Signs

People with undiagnosed diabetes may experience some combination of the following:

  • Frequent urination
  • Excessive thirst
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Extreme hunger
  • Sudden changes in vision
  • Tingling or numbness in hands or feet
  • Frequent fatigue
  • Very dry skin
  • More frequent infections, wounds and/or sores that may be slow to heal

In the abrupt onset of type 1 diabetes, these symptoms may be accompanied by stomach pains, nausea or vomiting.

If you think you or a loved one might have diabetes, every day counts -- and sometimes every minute. Don't delay in visiting a clinic for testing. In the event of abrupt onset of symptoms for a child or young adult, call 9-1-1 or go straight to your nearest emergency room.
