The number of people with diabetes in Britain is expected to rise by 700,000 by the end of the decade, according to a new analysis by Diabetes UK. Diabetes is a condition that can result in higher than normal levels of glucose (sugar) in your blood and if uncontrolled can lead to serious health problems over time. We offer free diabetes screenings in our pharmacies which can indicate the likelihood that you have diabetes or may develop it in the future. The process involves a blood glucose test which measures the amount of glucose that is in your blood at that time.
If you have diabetes it is much better to know so that you can start treating the condition straight away. If you are interested in a diabetes screening speak to one of our Pharmacy colleagues today. Our pharmacies are open seven days a week, including bank holidays, and all are open until late.

All prices and product information in blog articles were correct at the time and date of publication and are subject to change. The blood glucose test, carried out at Asda by trained pharmacy colleagues, measures the amount of glucose in your blood at the time of the test.
Our latest research shows that more than one in 10 (13%) people don’t know what diabetes is. Some 40% of people in the UK incorrectly believe eating sugary foods, a virus or fasting for long periods of time causes diabetes – of which all are myths.

We’ve been offering customers blood glucose screening since 2007 and test more than 1,000 shoppers every month. Find your nearest Asda Pharmacist: Visit our Store Locator to find your nearest Asda Pharmacy.

Two different student groups at Roseman University’s South Jordan, Utah campus recently hosted community events to raise money and awareness for local and national causes. To see photos from the event, check out the Roseman University Dental Clinic Facebook page.
Students from Roseman University College of Pharmacy in South Jordan partnered with University of Utah pharmacy students to present a 5K & Health Fair focused on diabetes education and awareness. The event took place April 12 at Sugarhouse Park, with over 300 participants in the 5K run and 1 mile walk. Roseman University’s College of Nursing had a booth where students provided healthy, diabetes-friendly recipes and offered information and activities to teach kids and adults about how diabetes affects your body.

Half of the estimated $10,000 raised will go towards international diabetes outreach and research in Armenia, the other half will be used locally around the state of Utah by student pharmacists at the University of Utah and Roseman University Colleges of Pharmacy to continue to promote diabetes prevention, as well as appropriate measures for management of diabetes, including purchasing diabetic testing supplies, providing materials for diabetes education, and purchase other supplies for some of the co-morbidities associated with diabetes. For news and general university information please call 702-968-1633 (Henderson, Nev.), 801-878-1035 (South Jordan, Utah). While this test does not diagnose diabetes, a positive screening result highlights the possibility the patient may be at risk and offers the opportunity for them to seek the correct medical advice. There is also confusion about the causes, even among people who suffer themselves, or know someone has been diagnosed with it. This event raised more than $4,000 to support the work of the national Oral Cancer Foundation and its efforts to promote life-saving research, patient support and awareness initiatives. Students aimed to promote healthy lifestyle changes for people to manage and prevent diabetes. It began with a pre-run ZUMBA warm up, and once runners were finished they could visit several booths where pharmacy students provided free health screenings for blood glucose, cholesterol, asthma, and blood pressure. Full details about the risk factors associated with diabetes can be found on the Diabetes UK website. Students also organized face painting, sack races, and other fun activities for kids, and the Red Cross was in attendance for a blood drive. Eric Vogel shared his experience as a cancer survivor with emphasis on the importance of early diagnosis and treatment.
