Ōtaki MP Nathan Guy receives a free diabetes risk check from Nurse Lorna Bingham at Parliament. Mr Guy is a local patron of Diabetes NZ, which supports and educates people living with diabetes.
Diabetes Awareness week runs from 16 to 22 November with theme ‘Stay Sweet As’.
“It was great to have a quick finger prick blood test and measure my blood pressure,” says Mr Guy.
“These tests helped remind me of the importance of a balanced diet and 30 minutes of exercise a day to help reduce the risk of diabetes.”no
