RAK Diabetes Centre extends free lifestyle and diabetes screening and awareness campaign for a month and a half

In the spirit of Ramadan and in order to help people deal with the abrupt changes in their diet and sleep pattern as they fast, Dubai’s RAK Diabetes Centre has initiated a month-and-a-half-long free lifestyle and diabetes screening and awareness campaign for UAE residents.

The camp, which offers a comprehensive diabetes check, cholesterol check and diet consultation aims to help people make a smooth transition to a health-friendly Ramadan diet, and then later return to regular meals with the least possible discomfort.

Starting on May 17, RAK Diabetes Centre in Jumeirah will offer screenings until June 30 for blood sugar levels, blood pressure and BMI among other indicators besides lifestyle wellness check-ups and consultations. The walk-in camp will be open from Saturday to Thursday, 9am to 5pm, while patients can fix a prior appointment for a dietician consultation.
