free blood-screening diabetes detection
tests to UNL students, faculty and

PJNovember is national Diabetes Month.
Diabetes, leading cause of blindness and
fifth leading cause of death, should be
tested for annually, said Geraldine Stamm,
director of the Nebraska Regional Medical
Program. The highest risk groups are
people who are overweight, blood relatives
of diabetics, persons more than 40 years
old and women who have had babies
weighing nine pounds or more at birth, she
Diabetes is caused by an absence of
insulin, a hormone which normally is
found in the body and which aids in pro
cessing sugar for energy, she said.
Symptoms of diabetes, she said, are
excessive urination, blurred vision, fatigue,
sudden weight loss and poor healing of
Dr. Kenneth Hubble, executive medical
director for the health center, said it is
important to eat a heavy meal before the
test, including orangne juice, bread with
butter and preserves, potatoes and a rich
dessert. Students should not drink coffee
or tea before the test because caffeine
tends to drive down the blood sugar level
and cause inaccurate test results.
Test results will be ready in about two
minutes. Two university medical technolo
gists can process 80 tests- an hour on the
two machines provided by the Nebraska
Regional Medical Program, according to
Celeste Knipmeyer, supervisor of
Community Health Services at the health
"Although the tests won't be as
accurate as a lab blood-sugar test, it will
give an indication if there is a high sugar
percentage in the body," she said.
Persons with test results indicating an
elevated blood-sugar level and possible
diabetes will be sent to the University
Health Center lab for more complete
tests, she said.
