Free Diabetes Clinic In Gooding
Gooding, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - Locals took advantage of a free clinic in Gooding this morning.
The head to toe clinic provided an opportunity for people with diabetes to get checked out.
Held at North Canyon Medical Center in Gooding, the screenings included eye dilation as well as foot neuropathy.
Many don't realize why these screenings are so crucial.
"A lot of people think that they'll only have problems if they eat lots of sugar and they'll be very obvious to them but many of the problems from diabetes can occur without the patient knowing at all," said optometrist Ray Goodman.
The free screenings were available by appointment only.
