There are over 1.2 million people in Australia living with diabetes, which is why it’s important that you monitor your blood glucose levels if you are at risk.
Our Diabetes Monitoring (Blood Glucose Screening) can assist those recently diagnosed with the condition or those with higher risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
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 Pharmacist will take a small amount of blood from your fingertip, and apply it to the testing strip. They will then discuss your results with you, and provide a copy of the result and support information. The process should take around 1 minute.
