Diabetes testing

Diabetes Testing at Gordons Bay Lions Club
A while ago, on a Saturday morning, we tested Jane for diabetes. As her blood sugar level was high, we advised her to visit her doctor. Later, Jane told us that she had been on the verge of type 2 diabetes. With her doctor’s help, she now manages to keep her blood sugar level stable.

We regularly test shoppers at the Gordon’s Bay Spar. You are welcome to drop by for a quick test. And a chat, if you like! Contact us for the next screening on a Saturday morning.
