Did you know that you can get your blood sugar level checked at Amcal by a trained pharmacist?
If you are unsure whether you could be at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, ask your Amcal pharmacist for a Diabetes Risk Assessment.
You may be at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes if any/all of the following apply - you:
- Have a family history of diabetes
- Are over 40 years old
- Are physically inactive and/or have poor nutrition
- Are a smoker
- Have high blood pressure
Amcal’s Diabetes Risk Assessment can assess your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and covers:
- On-the-spot finger prick blood test (HbA1c)* (additional + fees may apply)
- A HbA1c test measures the amount of glucose (sugar) attached to your red blood cells. The test provides a measure of whether there has been too much sugar in your blood over the previous 3 months.
