Diabetes Awareness Week runs from tomorrow until November 19, with the theme this year being diabetes and pregnancy.

Diabetes Marlborough will conduct free type-2 diabetes testing for adults at the Blenheim library tomorrow and Wednesday from 9.30am to 3pm.

The symptoms of type-2 diabetes can often be subtle, but include feeling tired, thirsty, urinary frequency, recurring infections that are hard to heal, poor eyesight or blurred vision and often feeling hungry.

If you have any these symptoms, a quick test can ease your mind, or give you the motivation to get the medical attention you need.
