Blood sugar screening
Daviess Community Hospital will be providing free finger stick blood sugar screening for pre-diabetes and diabetes in the hospital lobby on July 18, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. The public is invited.
According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes kills more people each year than breast cancer and AIDS combined. Every 17 seconds, someone is diagnosed with diabetes and recent estimates project that as many as 1 in 3 American adults will have diabetes by the year 2050 unless management measures are put in place during the pre-diabetes stage.
Prediabetes or blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes almost always occurs before a person develops Type 2 diabetes. There are 79 million people in the United States who have prediabetes. Recent research has shown that some long-term damage to the body, especially the heart and circulatory system, may already be occurring during prediabetes so screening is important.
For more information, contact the hospital’s Diabetes Center at 254-8866.
Stafford family reunion set
