Diabetes Monitoring (Blood Glucose Screening)
Diabetes Monitoring (Blood Glucose Screening) can assist those recently diagnosed with diabetes, or those with higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
With 1.2 million people in Australia living with diabetes, it’s important to monitor your blood glucose levels if you are at risk.
This test will not confirm if you have diabetes; a high blood glucose reading only indicates there may be an issue. We recommend you speak with your GP for more specific testing.
Health Check Procedure
Your Blooms The Chemist team member will take a small amount of blood from your fingertip and apply it to the testing strip. They'll discuss your results with you and give you a copy of the results and further information. This Health Check should take around 1 minute.
Are you a My HealthRewards member? You can earn Rewards points for every Health Check*. Just let your team member know when taking the test.
