How many of your family members over the age of 45 know their LDL or HDL cholesterol numbers?
How many of you know what your last blood pressure was?
How many of you have had it checked in the last 3 months?
How many of you know that there is a 10mm microfilament that you can use to check for foot neuropathy in 2 seconds (and it's probably less than $20)?
How many of you know that ethnic populations including African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans have an increased risk of type 2 diabetes?
How many of you know that one in five Americans are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes right now?
