Having diabetes increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, eye disease and kidney disease. Regular checks can reduce the risk of any of these complications.

We are therefore excited that a new service at the practice will allow patients with diabetes to test their kidney function from home

This test looks at the urinary albumin:creatinine ratio (ACR). The ACR test checks the kidney function by looking for particles of protein in the urine called albumin. If there is albumin in the urine, this means there is an increased risk of kidney disease and heart disease. If this is picked up at an early stage, there is medication that will reduce the risk of any complications

To help perform this test, we are working with a company called Healthy.io, who provide a urine ACR kit and app that allows people to do the test at home. The test is easy to do and only requires a smartphone and a kit that will be sent out to patients.

Healthy.io will be contacting patients in the next few weeks to send out the kit. To find out more about kidney disease or the test, see here: http://bit.ly/testACR

The NHS is now offering COVID-19 vaccinations to all children aged 5-11, in line with the latest advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). As well as protecting children against serious COVID infection and long covid, this will reduce the risk of children passing on the infection to others.

We will be contacting parents of our patients in this age group over the next few weeks to offer them appointments at special vaccination clinics. Please wait to hear from us and do not contact the practice. Alternatively if you prefer, you can book an appointment at selected vaccination centres and community pharmacies by visiting www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or by calling 119, free of charge.

For further information on COVID-19 vaccinations for 5-11s please visit www.leedsccg.nhs.uk/health/coronavirus/covid-19-vaccine/
