As the number of people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes continues to rise, it is important to know your risk factors and keep your health checks up-to-date. In Australia it is estimated that over one million people are diabetic but are undiagnosed.
There are several indicators that can be used to see if you are at risk of type 2 diabetes.
Blood glucose testing is just one of these indicators. Nourish Health offers a Blood Glucose Testing Service in store as a way of screening to see if you should perhaps make an appointment with your GP for further investigation*.
Blood glucose testing is quick and simple and can also be carried out if you have diabetes and simply forgot your glucometer.
*Test results are not for diagnostic or treatment purposes and are not conclusive as to the absence or presence of any health condition and are solely a screening guide. Recipients are encouraged to report test results to their doctor.
