Are You at Risk for Diabetes?
In Arizona, 1 in 3 adults have prediabetes, and 1 in 9 people have diabetes. One-third of those who have diabetes are unaware that they have the disease.
Anyone can get diabetes, but some people are at a higher risk. Risk factors include:
- Family history
- Being overweight
- Lack of physical activity
To find out if you are at risk, take this confidential online assessment.
You can also stop by the onsite Premise Health Care Center Open House on either November 2 or 9 between 11:00 am – 1:00 pm to complete the prediabetes assessment. The Open House will be at 301 W. Jefferson St., 2nd Floor. Click here to learn more about the onsite Premise Health Care Center.
After completing the assessment either online or at the Open House, you have the option of entering a drawing for a Wellness Swag Bag. You must complete the assessment by November 9 to enter the drawing, and you can only enter one time. Five winners will be selected; you need not be present to win.
If you discover you are at risk for prediabetes it is important that you quickly follow up with your health care provider. You can also schedule an appointment at the Premise Health Clinic.
If you are enrolled in either the County-sponsored Cigna HMO or UnitedHealthcare PPO medical plan, a Diabetes Management Program is available to you and your dependents. By successfully completing the program requirements, you will receive covered prescription diabetes medications and supplies at no cost. Read the program overview and these frequently asked questions.
Managing your weight, moving more, and eating healthier are important components in preventing and managing diabetes. If you are enrolled in any of the three County-sponsored medical plans, you can work with a health coach to make lifestyle changes by calling StayWell at 1.800.947.9541.
