Hy-Vee offers free A1C screenings this month

By Sandra Levy - 11/07/2018
As National Diabetes Awareness Month kicks off, Hy-Vee is offering free Hemoglobin A1C screenings throughout its eight-state region during the month of November.

The free Hemoglobin A1C screenings will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis at the Hy-Vee Healthy You Mobiles in 168 Hy-Vee store parking lots.

Hy-Vee registered dietitians will conduct a simple blood test, and review the results with individuals immediately following the test.

Hemoglobin A1C is a blood test that individuals with diabetes use to manage their blood glucose levels, and provides information about an individual’s average levels of blood glucose over a two- to three-month period.

Hy-Vee credited the following organization for making the screenings possible: Cabot, Chobani, Dexcom, McKesson, Novo Nordisk, Omax Health, OneTouch, Smart Chicken, Sola and Stemilt.
