As you know, as part of your annual diabetes review, urine testing is really important to look for signs of early kidney damage. We do this through a test test called albumin:creatinine ratio (ACR) test, which looks for small amounts of protein in the urine.
We know that people struggle to do the test, and many would prefer to avoid the clinic and test at home wherever possible. That’s why we are offering a new, NHS funded service to allow for people to do this test at home with a kit and a smartphone.
If you meet the criteria for the new service, you will receive a text message (or a letter!) about this testing process, which is run by Healthy.io
If you receive a text message it is not a scam, you do not need to pay for this service.
If you would prefer to opt out of the process you can say at any time. Their customer support service is available if you have any questions on 020 7183 7939
We look forward to hearing your feedback about this service.
