Syphilis elimination was in our sights a decade ago, yet today we find ourselves at a critical crossroads for syphilis prevention. Reported cases and rates for primary and secondary syphilis are the highest they have been in more than 20 years. Syphilis incidence is particularly severe among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM). It’s also rising among women, which has triggered a surge in congenital syphilis. Rates have increased in every region, a majority of age groups, and across almost every race/ethnicity. CDC has also seen an increase in reports of ocular syphilis in recent years. These data are a clear reminder that syphilis can strike many communities at anytime and anywhere.

What #Prediabetes is Trying to Tell You?

Did you know that people can have prediabetes for years without any clear symptoms? It often goes unnoticed until serious health problems show up, like type 2 diabetes or heart disease. But if you find out you have prediabetes early, you could make lifestyle changes (https://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/prevention/lifestyle-program/experience/index.html) proven to help safeguard your health.

Knowing your risk is the first step. If you have any of these risk factors for prediabetes, don’t wait—talk to your doctor about getting your blood sugar tested:
• Being overweight
• Being 45 years or older
• Having a parent or sibling with type 2 diabetes
• Being physically active less than 3 times a week
• Ever having gestational diabetes (diabetes while pregnant) or giving birth to a baby who weighed more than 9 pounds
• Being African American, Hispanic/Latino American, American Indian, Pacific Islander, or Asian American

Want to find out your risk right now? Take the 1-minute quiz at https://doihaveprediabetes.org/ and be sure to share the results with your doctor.
