    Glucose tests are simple enough to do at home, but the AIC test is something a diabetic ordinarily must have done at a lab. It's great that Walgreens is doing them free, and the AIC test is an important indication of overall glucose control. This is a good way for someone who suspects they might have diabetes, or whose family has the disease, to get a quick test and see if they should see a doctor about their concerns. Thanks for sharing the word with your readers!
