The National Kidney Foundation’s KidneyMobile is in Greenville today. The Bond County Health Department hosted the KidneyMobile last summer and provided services to 63 county residents. Of those 63, 50 were referred to their doctor with potential kidney issues.
Mark Ayers, Public Health Administrator at the Bond County Health Department, told WGEL some of the services available through the KidneyMobile include, “blood pressure, blood sugar, a body mass index, waist circumference, urinalysis, blood draws, if necessary, and each person is able to talk with a doctor or a nurse practitioner about their results. So, it’s a personalized service and I would highly encourage family members to get that person that you have a concern about to us.”
The KidneyMobile will be at the Bond County Health Department from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Fasting is not required for testing. No appointment is necessary, but you must be 18 or older to participate.
