Get your FREE A1C test to screen for Diabetes and Prediabetes
In support of National Diabetes Month, the Southwest Utah Public Health Department is offering FREE A1C testing to screen for diabetes and prediabetes during the month of November. To qualify for the free screening you must be a resident of either Washington, Iron, Kanab, Garfield, or Beaver County. You do not need to make an appointment, but be sure to check your local public health clinic hours of operation. Clinic hours vary by location.
The A1C test involves a simple finger prick and you will know your results within a few minutes. The results will place you in either the range of normal, prediabetic, or diabetic.
It is estimated that one-fourth of people with diabetes are unaware they have it, and 90% of people with preidabetes are unaware of their condition. Left untreated, these health conditions can lead to very serious health problems down the road. That is why it is so important to be screened for diabetes and prediabetes.
