Diabetes Awareness

 #LIONSFIGHTDIABETES

Diabetes is the signature cause of Lions and Leos around the world. This year, in partnership with the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) we’re on a mission to make our mark by screening 1 million people for type 2 diabetes. Help us reach our goal by taking the online risk assessment.

Online Risk Assessment

Finding out if you’re at risk for type 2 diabetes is simple. You can complete the Test2Prevent in roughly 10 minutes and a few clicks—then encourage others to take the assessment.

 


Diabetes Facts

Diabetes can lead to serious diseases affecting the heart and blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, nerves and teeth. In most high-income countries, diabetes is a leading cause of cardiovascular disease, blindness, kidney failure, and lower limb amputation. It is expected to affect 629 million adults by 2045.
