Diabetes alert

According to Reuter’s Health diabetes’ risk can be id’d easily.

“Identifying who is at risk of diabetes and a number of other health concerns may be as simple as measuring waist size, according to a new report.

U.S. researchers found that people who had relatively large waists and an excess of fats in their blood were more likely to also have diabetes or appear to be at risk of diabetes or other conditions, such as high cholesterol.

Consequently, a simple tape measure may be all the tools a doctor needs to identify people who need extra medical attention to ward off future health problems, study author Dr. Henry S. Kahn of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta told Reuters Health.”
