Determining Your Risk for Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes Risk

Are You At Risk for Type 2 Diabetes?​

Our 8 Weeks to Wellness Program May Be Able to Help


Why do some people develop type 2 diabetes and others do not?
There are certain factors that increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, including:

  • Weight – Being overweight is a primary risk factor for type 2 diabetes.
  • Fat distribution – If your body stores fat primarily in your abdomen, your risk of type 2 diabetes is greater than if your body stores fat elsewhere, such as your hips and thighs.
  • Inactivity – The less active you are, the greater your risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • Family history – The risk of type 2 diabetes increases if your parent or sibling has type 2 diabetes.
  • Age – The risk of type 2 diabetes increases as you get older, especially after age 45.
  • Prediabetes – Prediabetes is a condition in which your blood sugar level is higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. Left untreated, prediabetes often progresses to type 2 diabetes.
