Dr. Oz: Free Health Tests
Dr. Oz wants everyone to know that taking care of your health can be easy and simple tests could actually save your life. One of these tests measures your blood sugar, and can give you important health information in under a minute.
Dr. Oz went on viewer ambushes today, visiting the Circus and a San Francisco Trolley earlier. Next he went to a party, where he surprised Michelle, who is a big fan of the doctor.
Dr Oz: Blood Sugar Party
It sounds like Michelle throws a pretty boring party, because the guests were watching The Dr. Oz Show when the doctor himself arrived. That is no way to get a party going, though it is undeniably informative.
Dr. Oz subjected the partygoers to Blood Sugar Tests using a simple machine. He said that a typical resting Blood Sugar level should be under 100, and most of the people at the party came in between 85 to 100.
Dr Oz: Dangerously High Blood Sugar
Then it was party hostess Michelle’s turn. She admitted she has a family history of diabetes, and her number was out of control, reading 462. How is she standing still, or even standing up?
Dr. Oz sent her to the doctor, where she was immediately given a prescription. It’s been a short time since Dr. Oz surprised her, and she appeared in the audience with an update. She has lost four pounds and her Blood Sugar is down to 133, so she is on her way to better health.
Michelle said she is also taking supplements and working on changing her diet to maintain better control of her Blood Sugar levels.
