RediClinic, BIOSAFE Labs and Glycemion to Provide Free Diabetes Risk Assessments to Richmond, Va. School Children
Date:4/29/2008

RICHMOND, Va., April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- RediClinic LLC announced today that it is teaming up with BIOSAFE Laboratories, Inc. and Glycemion, Inc. to provide free diabetes screenings to school age children in the greater Richmond, Va. area to help identify diabetic and pre-diabetic children and adolescents. Beginning May 1, 2008 and continuing through May 31, 2008, the diabetes screenings will be available free of charge at any of the nine RediClinic facilities located in Wal-Mart Supercenters in the Richmond area. No appointments are necessary.

Parents are encouraged to bring their children in for the free screening if they recognize any of the seven most common symptoms of diabetes in their children: frequent urination, excessive thirst, extreme hunger, sudden weight loss, increased fatigue, blurred vision or if the child is overweight.

"Diabetes is a debilitating and life-shortening disease whose most serious complications can often be effectively treated with early detection. We hope that making this test available to school age children will result in earlier diagnosis of undiagnosed diabetes and pre-diabetes, and help to mitigate complications later in life. Awareness at an early age is key," said Carolyn Galloway, MD, chief medical officer of RediClinic LLC.

The BIOSAFE Diabetes Risk Assessment is a two-part process comprised of an immediate fasting glucose reading and a mail-in laboratory analysis for hemoglobin A1c, a blood glucose marker for the previous 90-day period. Samples for both tests are collected through a simple finger-stick collection kit. Taken in combination, these two results are a reliable indicator of diabetes or a pre-diabetes condition.

For best results, a child should fast for 12 hours before having the screening administered. The instant glucose results will be available a few minutes after the test is administered. If the glucose result is elevated, the blood sample will be sent to a lab for further ana
