What’s Your Why

Joyce Aponte, wife of Kaptain Jack, explains why. "One day we had the opportunity to take the screener.  He did.  When we looked at it we realized that both our family s have a history of diabetes. I looked at him and said, We don't need to loose anyone else to diabetes."

What’s Your Why for Living Well?

There are many reasons to learn more about your health. To know where you stand. To be in control. To feel better. And it all starts with knowing if you’re at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. There’s an easy way to find out – by taking the quick and easy 1-minute, online prediabetes risk test:

Why learn your risk? An estimated 84 million American adults – or 1 in 3 – have prediabetes. Prediabetes means your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough yet for a diabetes diagnosis. According to Pfeiffer, there are an estimated 500,000 diabetic truck drivers in the United States, one out of every seven.  As a group, truck drivers have a 50% higher rate of diabetes than the national average.

CDC-Truckers Diet and Exercise Options

You might be at risk of prediabetes if you:

  • Have a parent, brother, or sister with type 2 diabetes
  • Are 45 years or older
  • Are overweight
  • Are physically active 3 times or less a week
  • Had gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy) or gave birth to a baby that weighed more than 9 pounds

The good news is that prediabetes can often be reversed with lifestyle changes such as eating healthier, increasing physical activity, and learning how to manage stress. If your results show you’re at high risk for prediabetes, schedule an appointment with your doctor to learn how to lower your chances of getting type 2 diabetes.

You have important reasons to stay healthy – so you can continue to do the things you love with the people you love. So what’s your why? Learn more about preventing type 2 diabetes and the benefits of the lifestyle change program from OMADA
