A person can have diabetes for up to 12 years, and not know it. In fact most people over 40 are at least at moderate risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Left untreated, diabetes can lead to heart disease, stroke and other health issues.

Early detection of Type 2 diabetes, through risk assessment and blood glucose screening, can prevent serious health issues for your employees.
