Test regularly for diabetes and help to keep the disease at bay.
Since 1996 the amount of people diagnosed with diabetes has more than doubled, from 1.4 million to 2.9 million. Our lifestyles have made us more susceptible to the disease which can be caused by old age, unhealthy eating and obesity. If diabetes is left undiagnosed or not treated properly it can lead to other health complications in your eyes, heart, kidneys nerves and feet, so it’s really important to screen for the disease regularly so that if you do develop it you can catch it early.
The most common symptoms of diabetes are frequent urination and feeling thirsty all the time. If you have these symptoms and feel concerned a Diabetes Screening Test will be able to give you a good indication of whether diabetes is the problem or, if the test is negative, suggest that the symptoms come from potential bladder, urinary or kidney infections.
This pack contains 3 individually wrapped test strips to allow you to do exactly that. Whilst doctors would usually take a blood sample to test for diabetes, this home kit is much less invasive as it simply tests for glucose levels in urine. It also only takes up to 90 seconds to get the results, and is 99% accurate.
Glucose in urine, known as glucosuria, is usually an indicator of the onset of diabetes, but can also be a result of a problem with the kidneys, or could even be as a result of pregnancy. If you get a positive glucose reading go and have a chat with your GP so that they can undertake further tests and, if you do have diabetes, give you the appropriate treatment and advice to keep it under control.
