Free Diabetes Solutions Day Clinics at Rite Aid

It’s finally November, which means Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. Most people will be able to bask in the goodness of these holidays but, for some, Granny’s Turkey, Dressing, veggies and smorgasbord of desserts will create extra poundage and usher in possible health problems.

As a part of their annual focus on Diabetes Management, the good folks at Rite Aid are holding “Free Diabetes Solutions Day Clinics” around the city from November 2nd-4th. The Free Diabetes clinic will offer blood glucose, cholesterol and blood pressure screenings plus information on diabetes care.  

There are few health conditions more widespread than diabetes, which touches one out of every two Americans either directly or indirectly. Yet diabetes is equally hidden in America, where 5.7 million people don't even know they have it and another 57 million live with pre-diabetes. Diabetes costs our country $174 billion annually. According to a recent study in the American Journal of Public Health, avoiding diabetes can save the average American $34,483 a year and, more importantly, result in more than three extra years of life.
