This tool helps in identifying the diabetes risk of an individual through answers to some simple questions. It is based on the test published by American Diabetes Association (ADA). The paper version of the test is available at: ADA Paper Test .


This tool calculates your diabetes risk score using your age, gender, height, weight, family history, blood pressure history and physical activity levels as inputs. To use the tool, enter the requested values and hit the "Calculate Button". Your diabetes risk score will then be calculated and shown.

For example, if you enter gender of Male, age of 55, no family history of diabetes, no high blood pressure, physically active, weight 170 lbs., height 5' 7", your risk score will be shown as 4.


A value of 5 or more indicates high risk of having Type II diabetes. This means that you should get yourself checked by a doctor and modify your lifestyle to bring down your risk level.

Also note that the type II diabetes is more common in the following ethnic groups: African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, American Indians and Pacific Islanders.
