Since the beginning of 2008 the Test-Point line includes the Diabetes test. Diabetes is a very common disease; in the Netherlands alone almost 1 million people have diabetes, and it is increasing steadily. The largest problem of diabetes is that only 50% of the diabetics are aware of it. Often it remains unnoticed because it comes into existence by degrees. Unpleasant causes of diabetes are, amongst others, low energy, kidney problems, demention, diseases to heart and vasculars, problems with your eyes, skin and feet.
Although there is no cure for diabetes now, good treatments are available when it is diagnosed in an early stage. In case the following characteristics relate to you, you find yourself in a high risk group:
- Aged > 45
- Insufficient physical exercise
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol levels
- A relative with diabetes
Yearly testing on diabetes is recommended.
