Getting checked

More than 60 people were at the Health Services Authority this morning to get their eyes and blood tested.

It’s all a part of world diabetes day, the HSA offered free cholesteral, blood sugar level and glaucoma screenings.
Reading materials also were provided with information for diabetes and how to have a balanced, nutritious diet.

“Because a lot of diabetics have issues with their eyes, so we are just assisting the diabetic association and trying to detect problems with eyes that needs to follow up with a doctor.” Said Reginald Nixon from the Lions Club of Grand Cayman.

“So most people are understanding that the complications in the long term is really what matters and that is what we really want them to get to drive home to people and people are getting the message so we are happy for that.” Said Tamara Riley, Community dietitian for the HSA.

Tomorrow night there will be a public forum with education on diabetes and eyecare at the HSA in the hibiscus conference room from 5:30pm to 7pm
