The Canadian Diabetes Association is encouraging people to take a two-minute online test to determine their risk for type 2 diabetes.

The test is part of the association's Make Time campaign,

The test consists of 10 questions, looking for information about your health history, height, weight, and general exercise and eating habits.

Almost 15,000 Islanders deal with diabetes every day. If left untreated, it can cause heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness and amputation.

The two-minute online test is available at www.take2minutes.ca.

The association warns the test is not a substitute to traditional medical advice.
