rapid diabetes test

Did you know that diabetes affects millions of Brazilians and that at least half of them don’t know they have the disease? Diabetes can be silent, but when well monitored and treated, it allows a normal life if the patient has, at least, the correct diagnosis. This chronic condition is characterized by insufficient production or malabsorption of insulin by the body and, according to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), affects 15.7 million people in Brazil.

Are you one of them?

In the month that marks the alert for the diagnosis of the disease, GLIC , a pioneering application in digital health for the treatment of diabetes, created a quiz that will help you find out if you have a predisposition to the disease. With just a few quick answers, you’ll know if you’re in a high-risk group for developing type 2 diabetes in the next 10 years, and you’ll receive guidance and information about the disease.
