Approximately 280 Australians develop Diabetes every day! You don’t have to be old. You don’t have to be overweight.
Poorly managed Diabetes can lead to heart disease, kidney failure, stroke, amputation and blindness.
The risk of NOT knowing is NOT worth it.
At Capital Chemist O’Connor we can help you to check your risk of having Diabetes or if you are already diagnosed we can check if your management can be improved.
A HBA1C test gives you an average blood glucose reading of the last 10 to 12 weeks. All Diabetics should get this done every 3-6 months. It gives you a more accurate idea of how well your diabetes is being managed and can also be used to screen people for possibly having Diabetes that is not yet diagnosed.
We are running in store HBA1C testing for the week of 18th-22nd of July 2016, it takes about 15 minutes and we give you the results on the day. Fee for service, conditions apply.
If you can’t make it in for that week then we have take home finger prick tests available, they are easy to use and we are happy to help you complete it in the pharmacy at any time. Bring in the results and one of our Pharmacists will go over them with you!
AUSDRISK is a quick tick-box style assessment that we recommend for people who are at risk, or showing symptoms of diabetes.
