Lutheran Social Services
A young woman who was experiencing severe headaches went to a surrounding area's ER. After a CT scan was done, she was sent away with pain medications. Her mom was still concerned about her condition and brought her to the Health for Friends clinic run by Lutheran Social Services. They checked her blood pressure and blood sugar and found that they were both at dangerously high levels. The pain medications could have masked symptoms and if her high blood pressure and blood sugar had gone untreated, she would have very likely had a stroke.
