FARNSFIELD DIABETES & HELTH UPDATE.Diabetes is in the news, as it affects an increasing number of people. It’s one of the Lions 5 global causes where we are taking action. In the UK, it’s estimated that 1 million people are unaware that they have type 2 diabetes.
We held a FREE screening session using Silver Star's mobile screening unit in the Car Park at the Farnsfield Cricket Club on 5 October from 09.30 to 16.30. Qualified medical personnel did a simple blood test which indicated whether or not you should consult your doctor for further tests.
48 people were tested for potential diabetes problems and given lifestyle advice based on their BMI results and questionnaire. The anonymised results are below.
