Dates for November testing programme
By Anne Bowles THIS MONTH we have World Diabetes Day and the Diabetic Support Group will be doing random glucose testing. Do consider having this quick test – it could save your life! You don’t have to be overweight to be diabetic – anybody can have this condition from birth to old age!
By burying your head in the sand you could also ignore the consequences! Amputation, kidney failure, blindness, neuropathy and impotence are just some of the consequences of ignorance about diabetes.This month you can find us in the following places:
outside La Cala de Mijas Town Hall from 11 am to 2 pm
at the Costa Women Fair at Avanto La Cala de Mijas from 4 pm to 7 pm
Age Care Charity Shop Calahonda from 10.30 to 2 pm
outside Mijas Tourist Office from 11
November 12 18
am to 2 pm
We are supported by the La Cala de Mijas Lions and diabetes is one of the Lions International initiatives around the world.
Please email Anne Bowles on annedia firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or telephone our helpline on 607 879 450…..especially if you need urgent help.
We also hold monthly educational meetings and are willing to come along to your club meetings or golf course to tell you more about this condition.
Remember it’s not that you don’t know if you are diabetic…… it's what you DON’T KNOW your don’t know! ie the consequences! THE COSTA del Sol Freethinkers next meeting is on November 17 at Cafe Manila, Paseo Marítimo, Res de España 77, Los Boliches from 18.30 to 20.00
New Zealand's new prime minister has described capitalism a blatant failure, saying that levels of homelessness and low wages are evidence that the market has failed her country's poor.
And a former Greek finance minister and economics professor claims that capitalism is ending because it has made itself obsolete.
Usually about 15-20 attend our meetings, mainly expats from the UK and other European countries, including Poland, the Netherlands and Denmark, but Spaniards have sometimes attended, and also an Australian, an Argentinian, an Egyptian-Canadian and two Iranians. At this meeting the language used will be English, but if anyone is interested in meetings in Spanish, either in Málaga or elsewhere, let me know.
