  • Lake Regional Pharmacy in Lake Ozark will provide free blood pressure and glucose tests 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 21. Appointments are not necessary.
     
    A Lake Regional pharmacist will explain the test 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 the 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. Following your screening, you will be given a log to keep track of future blood pressure and glucose tests.”
     
    Fasting 12 hours in advance is encouraged for a true glucose reading. Free, healthy snack options will be available to participants following the test.
