March 1, 2007 (Salt Lake City, UT) -- PCE Health & Fitness is joining forces with the American Diabetes Association (ADA) to increase awareness of diabetes! The 19th annual Diabetes Alert Day, on March 27, is a one-day awareness effort to educate people of their risk for diabetes. The ADA is asking people to find out if they are at risk for diabetes, by taking a short diabetes risk assessment.

Through the ADA's website, (link to www.diabetes.org), one lucky person will win the LifeSpan TR2000 treadmill recently featured on ABC's The View and autographed by the shows hosts! The TR2000's decline feature lets you walk down hill, which has been proven to help the body's ability to process sugar in the blood -- a critical factor in managing diabetes.

Diabetes is a silent disease and goes undetected in many Americans. 20.8 million Americans have diabetes and nearly 1/3 of them don't know it! Your risk increases as you get older, so take the American Diabetes Association Risk Test (link to ADA risk test) to see if you're at risk for developing diabetes.

Other risk factors for diabetes include:
•High blood pressure (above 130/80)
•Family history of diabetes
•Diabetes during pregnancy or following the birth of a baby weighing more than nine pounds

The American Diabetes Association is the nation's leading nonprofit health organization providing diabetes research, information and advocacy. PCE is proud to support this effort and hope you'll join us by encouraging your customers to take the risk assessment.
