Diabetes risk check
»!« Lack of physical exercise
are important risk factors
»!« Healthy nutrition and
regular physical exercise
can prevent these risks
Risk factors as overweight, lack of physical exercise, high blood pressure, smoking, disturbed values of blood fat and heredity are involded in the development of type 2 diabetes. The more risk factors are present, the higher is the probability to develop type 2 diabetes.
This Diabetes Risk Check is therefore not siutable for persons already suffered from diabetes, but all persons from their surroundings, who present risk factors or who are interested in performing this check. If there already typical signs of diabetes exist, this check is also not suitable. Such signs are strong thirst, frequent urinate, tiredness, no appetite, weariness or unfounded loss of body weight.
If you have observed these symptomes you should contact your practitioner or a diabetes specialist immediately.
This Diabetes Risk Check was developed and published by Dr. Jaana Lindström and Prof. Jaako Tuomilehto.
