TODAY: YMCA Offers Week of Free Type 2 Diabetes Screening

One in three people in America are at risk for type 2 diabetes. That's more than 79 million people, according to the American Diabetes Association. Diabetes is the gateway to many additional health complications including, heart disease, nerve disease, kidney disease, stroke, blindness and more. Because diabetes is a silent and progressive disease, 50 percent of those at high risk do not realize it.

Type 2 diabetes is preventable if you make a change before it's too late, but there's no turning back once you receive a diagnosis.
