Open Saturday — Evening — KATZ Clothiers Quitting Business Free Test for Diabetes Here Oct. 10 to 15 The Cerro Gordo County Medical society and the Public Health Nursing association here are joining with the American Diabetes association in sponsoring an observance of Diabetes Protection week here Oct. 10 to 15. Dr. L. W. Swanson, president of the local medical society and member of the American diabetes association, stated the necessary materials and equipment has been provided the nursing service which will make free urine analysis of specimens brought to the nursing association offices all next week. The nursing association offices Nos. 212 and 213 on the 2nd floor of the J. C. Penney company building, are open from 8:30 to 12 and from 1 to 5 each week day except Saturday when they are open until noon. When the analysis is made one of 2 cards provided by the medical society will be given the person undergoing the test. One is given'where the tests show no sugar content and therefore no indication of the presence of diabetes. The other card is provided for those where tests show presence of sugar. This, Dr. Swanson pointed out, does not necessarily mean diabetes, but it does mean that further tests should be made by the family physician. These will include a fasting test and a test shortly after giving the subject a quantity of sugar and also blood tests. Those taking specimens to the nursing office should make certain that the bottles are clean, it was pointed out. Otherwise the analysis cannot be conclusive.
