Message for Diabetes Patients
If you have diabetes, you will know that as part of your diabetes annual review, urine testing is really important to look for early signs of kidney damage. We do this through a test called the albumin:creatinine ratio (ACR) test, which looks for small amounts of protein in the urine.
We know people struggle to do the test, and many would prefer to test at home wherever possible. That’s why we are offering a new, NHS funded service to allow people to do this test at home with a kit and a smartphone.
If you do not have a smartphone, then maybe a relative can help you, or you can drop the sample into the practice for testing.
If you meet the criteria for the new service, you will receive a text message or a letter about this testing process, which is run by Healthy.io. Your results will be sent automatically to the practice and we will contact you if your result means you need a follow-up. If you want to find out more, please click here: https://lp.healthy.io/minuteful_info/.
This text is not a scam; you do not need to pay for the service, and if you would rather opt out of the process you can say at any time. If you want to speak to their customer support team, you can call them on 020 7183 7939.
We hope you enjoy the convenience of this new service.
