Diabetes kills more Americans each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined. In the next 24 hours, over 130 people will develop kidney failure because of diabetes.

That’s nearly 50,000 friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members every year.

Recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes by 2050 unless we take steps to stop diabetes.

1 in 11 Americans has it.
1 in 4 adults who has it doesn’t know it.
1 in 3 adults is at risk of developing it.

Find out if you’re at risk for Type 2 Diabetes by taking a simple test below.

    I registered for chance to win the tickets without taking the test, because I am a Type I Diabetic. 🙂 So I don’t think I need to see if I’m at risk for Type 2. My kids beg me to buy tickets to the concert every time we hear it advertised on the station. Thanks!!!

  • Patrice A Fauss says:

    I’d like to have the opportunity to win tickets to the concert.
    Several Family members have type 1 diabetes, so I would like to see what the odds are for me.

  • Debbie Montavy says:

    The diabetic assessment was helpful information and i am VERY excited to have a chance to win tickets to see Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant. Their Christian music is sooo inspirational.

    Thanks so much for this free test glad to say my score is a 1 out of 10! I’m entering the contest for my wife, she has always wanted to see this Christmas show but each year we have to pick between it and getting something for our kids. We always choose our kids. She will be so happy if we win.

  • Patrick Smith says:

    Thanks for the free test and for the opportunity to give my wife a present she will truly enjoy

  • Lisa Nelson says:

    Considering my family history with diabetes, I was afraid my score would be higher than it is. It’s good to know there are other factors we can control to help prevent the disease.

  • Whipple says:

    Nice idea, pairing important information with an incentive.

    Thanks so much!!

  • Amy M says:

    I thought my risk would be higher than my husband’s since my mom was diabetic. My risk was a 4 and my husband’s was a 7. Thank you for this test the past couple of years. I think my risk was a little higher last year and just by losing weight I lowered my risk.

  • Ann says:

    My son has had Type 1 diabetes for 10 years; got it when he was 9 years old. He has not ‘owned’ the fact that he has diabetes, eats/drinks lots of sugar and runs A1C’s of 12. He is not taking his insulin, much. Please pray for him. His name is William, and I love him so.

  • Marnie says:

    Amy”s Christmas music held us through the holidays of several really tough years. Thank you for extending this opportunity. Bless you!

    My husband was warned in the mid- 80’s at a church health fair that his sugars were dangerously high and that he should see a doctor asap. He did not take it seriously, nor would he go to the doctor because he felt “fine” and it must have been the pancakes and maple syrup he had for breakfast, before the test. About 5 years later he ended up in the emergency room with what was first thought to be a heart attack. It was not, but he was warned again to get on the recommended diet plan, get lots of exercise and cut the “work anxiety” where he could, because he was dangerously strattling the border. Needless to say, he still “felt fine” but he started using Equal in his many cups of daily coffee. Several years later, he had a stroke, followed by quadruple bypass in 10 months, eye surgery and many other complications. He was 57. Now he believes!!!! God has preserved him to nearly 76, but the toll on his quality of life has been immense, and I have been in the care-taking arena for 19 years while still raising young children, Diabetes is nothing to mess with or ignore!!!!!
