Diabetes awareness

The Diabetic Awareness Support Group hosted a health day of screening, testing and advising Mitchell’s Plain residents about the disease in which the body’s ability to produce or respond to the hormone insulin is impaired, resulting in the abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates and elevated levels of glucose in the blood. World Diabetes Day is on November 14. The group meets on a Wednesdays at Northwood community hall, in Woodlands. For more information, call Bernie Galant at 076 547 2827.
