You can get screened for diabetes for free over the next few days.

Tuesday and Wednesday, Sasse Surgical Associates will hold free screenings at their offices at Pringle Way in Reno.

You can stop by between 9am and 3pm.

Dr. Kent Sasse says the key is to find the disease - and stop it before it can do any major damage.

"Today we're seeing more and more diabetes across the country and across northern Nevada, so it's important to test for diabetes because many people don't have any symptoms of it."

Dr. Sasse says getting tested early can give those who may develop diabetes enough time to make lifestyle changes like stopping smoking and weight loss to control and possibly eliminate their disease.
