During the month of November, traditionally associated with eating scrumptious carbs and pies, Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake is offering a free screening for diabetes. In recognition of November as National Diabetes Awareness month, your neighborhood healthcare providers are offering this screening along with helpful information about the disease.
Here’s the Facts
Earlier this summer, the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) released a statement that 1 in 4 people do not know they suffer from diabetes. Nationally, this disease that affects blood sugar is on the rise with 29 million people diagnosed with diabetes, up from 26 million only four years ago.
Perhaps even more alarming is the stunning 86 million Americans that have prediabetes that are expected to escalate into Type 2 diabetes in the next few years if weight loss and moderate exercise habits are not adopted.
Free Diabetes Screening
On Saturday, November 15 from 8:00 a.m. to noon, Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake is offering a free diabetes screening including glucose finger stick, blood pressure and weight measurement to determine your risk for diabetes. In addition, diabetes education will be offered including fitness and nutrition suggestions for diabetes management. No fasting required.
