Are you concerned you may have diabetes? Popular Lloyds Pharmacy are offering free diabetes testing checks at participating pharmacies across the UK. To see if your local store offers this service, follow the “store locator” link and enter your postcode.
The test is available to anyone over the age of 16 years, excluding pregnant women for health reasons. After booking an appointment on the website and attending, a member of the pharmacy team will ask you a number of health-related questions, including details about your: age, weight, type and length of activity, your heating habits, family instances of diabetes, and others.
At this point, the diabetes test will be administered. This involves taking a very small blood sample, which can then be used to measure your blood glucose level. In addition, a member of the team will also take your blood pressure as a routine check. If it is deemed you require a further appointment, this can also be arranged and may involve additional tests and measurements.
