SPECIAL FEBRUARY ONLY PROMOTION
We will be offering free hemoglobin A1C tests to Livingston County residents on Tuesdays and Thursdays in February from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on a walk-in basis.
This special promotion in Heart Health month targets the link between Diabetes, diagnosed or undiagnosed, and heart disease.
Currently in the United States, about 98 million adults—that’s 1 in 3—have prediabetes, and over 8 in 10 of them don’t know they have it. Additionally, more than 37 million people have diabetes. Prediabetes can lead to type 2 diabetes and other long-term health risks, like heart attack and stroke.
The A1C test—also known as the hemoglobin A1C or HbA1c test—is a simple blood test that measures your average blood sugar levels over the past 3 months. It’s one of the commonly used tests to diagnose prediabetes and diabetes, and is also the main test to help you and your health care team manage your diabetes.
Get a baseline A1C test if you’re an adult over age 45—or if you’re under 45, are overweight, and have one or more risk factors for prediabetes or type 2 diabetes.
No appointments are necessary for this promotion.
