We now offer annual diabetes screening for patients who have had high blood sugar readings in the past, as well as patients who have had Gestational Diabetes (temporary Diabetes during pregnancy). Some patients will go on to develop Type 2 Diabetes, and it’s best to pick this up early to reduce the risk of problems later on.
A simple blood test is all that is required. We aim to call people in every year to offer this test. If you think you should have this, but haven’t heard from us, please let us know.
You can book a blood test by calling reception on 0131 657 5444. When calling, please mention ‘Diabetes Screening’. The results will be available a week after the test.
