Today the ADA launched a new online calculator called "My Health Advisor." This tool can show one's risk for diabetes, heart disease, or stroke.

Here is a quote from Medical News Today:

"Unlike other online health calculators, My Health Advisor uses the powerful and unique health simulation program, Archimedes. Archimedes pulls together large amounts of clinical research data to make highly accurate predictions about a person's health risks. The software creates a virtual reality in which all relevant factors that can impact a person's health in the real world match the factors in the simulated world. To further ensure accurate assessments, the results have been compared directly with real-life clinical trial results and have a nearly perfect correlation with the outcomes of actual patients."

Here is the link to this new tool. Go check it out!
