What can these cute puppies tell you about prediabetes?
Puppies, Prevention, and Prediabetes
What do puppies, hedgehogs, and baby goats have in common (besides being super cute)? They’re helping people find out their risk for prediabetes, thanks to the National Prediabetes Awareness Campaign’s lighthearted new public service announcements (PSAs).
There’s still a critical need to increase prediabetes awareness—84.1 million US adults have prediabetes, and 90% of them don’t even know it. These new videos offer viewers a “perfect way to spend a minute”: they can learn where they stand by taking a one-minute prediabetes risk test while also doing something everyone loves—watching fun animal videos. Viewers are also encouraged to speak with their doctor about getting a blood sugar test if they’re at risk and to visit DoIHavePrediabetes.org to learn more about prediabetes.

The National Prediabetes Awareness Campaign was developed in partnership with the Ad Council, American Diabetes Association, and American Medical Association.
