  • Lake Regional Pharmacy in Osage Beach will provide free blood pressure and glucose tests 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 18. Walk-ins are welcome.
     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.
     “Blood pressure and glucose logs can tell you and your physician a lot about your overall health,” said Whitney Thomas, PharmD, Lake Regional Pharmacy. “High blood pressure and blood sugar levels can lead to other health conditions, such as heart disease or diabetes.” 
    Fasting 12 hours in advance is encouraged for a true glucose reading. Free, healthy snack options will be available to participants following the test.
     Call 573-302-2700 for more information. Lake Regional Pharmacy, with three convenient locations, offers patient education each month. To learn more, visit lakeregional.com/events.
