Diabetes prevention and knowing your risk

You can now do some 9Health preventive screenings at a Quest Diagnostics Patient Service Center, including one for hemoglobin A1C to access your risk for diabetes.

We talked with 9Health Expert, Dr. Payal Kohli, and the YMCA of Metro Denver about why prevention is vital right now.

The YMCA offers a Diabetes Prevention Program. Once you know your risk of diabetes or are diagnosed with it, you can sign up for the YMCA’s program. Click or tap here for more information.
