The general rate of glycemia in adults is up to 6 mmol per liter. Increasing blood glucose indicates a problem. And, perhaps, is diabetes. Participants can discover their weight, body mass index, and ask questions and advice from an endocrinologist. Each year, such events cover up to 300 residents.
