These tools are especially worthwhile for relatives of people with Type 2 diabetes, who may have a higher genetic risk of developing diabetes. It’s also a good idea for everyone to recheck their risk from time to time, especially if something changes, such as a person’s level of physical activity or weight. Risk also inevitably goes up with age. So whatever your risk is today, it can change in the future.
