It's estimated more than 20 million children and adults in this country have diabetes, but about eight million of those don't even know it yet.
If you've wondered about your children or yourself, you can get free testing for diabetes all this week and you don't need an appointment, but you do need to stop eating for a few hours before the test. Two hours is okay, but four hours without food is much better.
The Texas Tech School of Nursing is providing free blood sugar testing at the Larry Combest Community Health and Wellness Center from from 8:00 to 5:00 every day this week. That center is located at 301 40th street.
