Amcal Diabetes Check

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.

You can book your test here.
