WEST DES MOINES, Iowa  — In honor of National Diabetes Month, Hy-Vee will provide free Hemoglobin A1C screenings throughout its eight-state region during the month of November.

The free Hemoglobin A1C screenings will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis at the Hy-Vee Healthy You Mobiles in 160 Hy-Vee store parking lots. Hy-Vee 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 following organizations helped make the screenings possible: Fat Rabbit, Glucerna, Cabot, Good Idea, Novo Nordisk, Quaker and Think.
