March 11: Diabetes Risk Questionnaire Available Online


An online questionnaire is now available to help New Brunswickers identify their risk of having pre-diabetes or Type 2 diabetes. Developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada, the CANRISK Diabetes Questionnaire is mainly for adults between 45 to 74, but may also be used for younger groups in high-risk populations. It asks a series of questions about important risk factors for diabetes. Answers are confidential. The online tool also offers information about the disease as well as helpful links.
