Diabetes Detection Technique
4Do-It-Yourself Test Strips Involved in Approach
By Nancy Whitford
A new technique for the
early detection of diabetes,
which may 'have nation-wide
significance, has been devel
oped by the University
Health Service.
The new approach to dia
betic case finding consists of
mailing "do-it-yourself" test
strips to persons who are then
asked to return the results.
Significance lies in the fact
that the method is both cheap
and effective.

who tested positive have been
identified as "probably dia
betic." "The significance of these
figures lies in the fact that
2 to Vh persons per 1,000 on
the University campus have
been found to have diabetes
without being previously
aware of it," said Dr. Ken
neth Rose, director of re
search for the University
Health service.
"This means that there are
probably 200-250 persons in
the city of Lincoln who may
also have diabetes without
realizing it," he said.
1.7 Cents Each
Cost of the tests is approxi
mately 1.7 cents each, while
similar testing done in a doc
tors office would cost about
$2. However, once a year dur

The importance of early de

One example of this is the fact
that when the body fails to
burn sugar, it burns fat in

substances believed to cause
hardening of the arteries.

Persons who have family
histories of diabetes should
be especially careful to have
frequent test checks, Dr. Rose
