Blood glucose screening - Lions Club Ploiesti together with IP Naresh Aggarwal

During 09-11 March 2018, Lions District 124 Romania has received visit of International President Naresh Aggarwal together with his wife Navita.

With this occasion, Lions Club Ploiesti organized in partnership with Prahova Diabetes Association and Sanitary College THOMA SOCOLESCU from Ploiesti a free blood glucose test campaign, a campaign which took place at the Commercial Market Ploiesti, between 11.30 and 13.30, on March 10, 2018.

The event was a successful and applauded by the present people, who had the opportunity to check their blood glucose levels and blood pressure.

We managed to offer, I say, a bit of hope, health and optimism to no less than 197 persons from Ploiesti.

The age of participants was between 29 and 87 years. From them, 70 persons were identified with blood glucose over the limits: blood glucose over 120- 68 persons and blood glucose less than 80- 2 persons.

Also, we cannot ignore the presence of people aged between 35 and 55 years, whose number was not large, but prove the increasing interest to early embrace the dictum Is easier to prevent than to treat.

Despite the economic crisis and the inherent daily issues, we found that the people are interested in their health and try, if possible, to live a balanced life.


Lions Clubs International is the largest humanitarian service organization in the world, made up of people with a recognized moral and social position, able to improve the fate of the poor, united by friendship and animated by the desire to serve.
