Do You Have Prediabetes? Take This Quick Quiz to Find Out

The prediabetes quiz is part of a new government-sponsored campaign designed to help spread awareness about diabetes and reiterate the fact that "no one is excused." The quick test includes seven simple questions about your age, family history and other factors that can influence risk.
