More than half of Asian Americans with type 2 diabetes, and even more with prediabetes, are undiagnosed; there isn’t enough awareness among patients and providers of this appropriate guideline. To treat, intervene, and even prevent diabetes, we need to first ensure that it is revealed. That means making doctors and patients aware that a body mass index of 23 is a risk factor to consider for screening diabetes in an Asian American patient.
If we can make doctors and patients aware of the need to Screen at 23, we can make that happen. Go to Screenat23.org to download the Screen at 23 package and join the campaign today.
