As the world celebrates World Diabetes Day today, Health Minister Joe Cassar this morning encouraged the Maltese to test for the condition, which one may be able to prevent by leading a healthy lifestyle.

Blood glucose can be monitored at any of the health centres in Malta and Gozo. This, the minister said, is a simple test which can be done in a few seconds and should be included in one’s annual doctor check-up.
