Apple Discount Drugs Giving Risk Tests On Diabetes Alert Day

Posted: Updated:

FRUITLAND, Md. - Diabetes Alert Day is March 26th and educators want you change your lifestyle to start lowering your risk for diabetes.

"Most of the times they can make subtle lifestyle changes, that would help them avoid diabetes," said John Motsko, Apple Discount Drugs Pharmacist/Certified Diabetes Educator. "You may get it eventually, like I may get it eventually, but it's not because I'm not trying."

According to the  American Diabetes Association, seven million people currently live with the disease and don't know they have it. Pharmacists at Apple Discount Drugs will administer risk tests that kick starts the process to lower the risk.

"Because I'm a male, because of my age,  because my parents I have a score of five right there. I can't change those things, but what I can change if how active I am."

Also, Motsko says that the pharmacy will also administer a blood glucose test and hand out diabetes logbooks tomorrow.
