Diabetes Alert Day

Today, March 23 is Diabetes Alert Day, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) joins together with the global diabetes community to raise awareness about how type 2 diabetes can be managed or prevented through routine screenings, medical care, program support, and lifestyle changes.



People with type 2 diabetes are impacted at significantly higher rates if diagnosed with COVID-19, it is important, now more than ever, to educate ourselves about the disease and empower those living with it.


Additionally, 33% of adults in the United States are at risk for kidney disease—and having diabetes increases that risk.



Take the type 2 diabetes risk test provided by the American Diabetes Association and the kidney disease risk assessment provided by the National Kidney Foundation.
