Free diabetic foot, glucose screenings offered in Lowcountry

BLUFFTON, S.C. (WSAV) - Free diabetic foot and glucose screenings are being offered in the Lowcountry on Wednesday afternoon.

According to the City of Hardeeville, the screenings will be held at Coastal Carolina Hospital’s Center for Hyperbarics and Wound Healing on August 15 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Screenings will be free in an effort to “educate members of our community about serious complications associated with diabetes.”

Nerve damage can often occur in the legs and feet for those with diabetes. Experts say preventative care can help reduce the risk of amputation.

Appointments are required for the screening. There are two ways to make yours: call 1-844-366-9804 or visit hiltonheadregional.com.

The center is located on 75 Baylor Drive in Bluffton. For more information on Hilton Head Regional Healthcare visit here.
