  • Lake Regional Pharmacy in Camdenton will provide free blood pressure and glucose tests 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 16. Appointments are not necessary.
     A Lake Regional pharmacist will explain the results, including how they compare to recommended guidelines. Patients also will receive a blood pressure and glucose log following the tests. Or, pharmacists will update participant’s current log.
     “Many people don’t realize they have high blood pressure or blood sugar spikes,” said Whitney Thomas, PharmD, Lake Regional Pharmacy. “Both can lead to other health conditions, such as heart disease or diabetes. It’s important to know your normal levels and monitor them often.” 
    Fasting 12 hours in advance is encouraged for a true reading. Free, healthy snack options will be available to participants following the test.
