CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) – Chairwoman of the American Diabetes Association Grete McBath, joins John Thomas on Tuesday's 3 New First Edition to talk about screening yourself for diabetes.
McBath asks that you go to diabetes.org and do the online test to see if you may need to take it further and go to the Dr. for a thorough screening for diabetes.
Diabetes Alert month is over, but the Stop Diabetes campaign will be starting soon. Another event coming up is the Camp Sand Castle which helps kids with diabetes interact with other kids with the same affliction.
McBath adds that Corpus Christi has a lot of health fairs to help diabetics to keep track of their diabetes, and to help others be screened for diabetes.
