WEST DES MOINES, Iowa- Hy-vee has announced that in honor of National Diabetes Month, they will provide free diabetes screenings throughout the month of November.

The free Hemoglobin A1C screenings are offered on a first-come, first-served basis at the Hy-Vee Healthy You Mobiles in 160 Hy-Vee store parking lots.

Hy-Vee says their registered dietitians will conduct a simple blood test, and review the results with individuals immediately following the test.

Hemoglobin A1C is a blood test that individuals living with diabetes use to manage their blood glucose levels, and provides information about an individual’s average levels of blood glucose over a two- to three-month period.

The Hy-Vee on 53rd Street in Davenport is providing a screening on Friday, Nov. 1 from 8 a.m. to noon. Another Hy-Vee in Davenport on Locust Street is providing a screening Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
