3–9 points >> You are probably at low risk for having diabetes now. But don't just forget about it—especially if you are Hispanic/Latino, African American, American Indian, Asian American, or Pacific Islander. You may be at higher risk in the future.

10 or more points >> You are at greater risk for having diabetes. Only your health care provider can determine if you have diabetes. At your next office visit, find out for sure.

* Body mass index (BMI) is a formula for determining obesity. BMI equals a person's weight in pounds divided by height in inches squared; this number is then multiplied by 703. BMI = (pounds/inches2) x 703.
