Diabetes Test

The Diabetes Test is an essential assessment for those who have diabetes, have a family history of the condition, or have symptoms suggestive of blood sugar issues. Regular monitoring of HbA1C and fasting Glucose levels is also recommended for those with risk factors for diabetes, such as obesity, hypertension, or a sedentary lifestyle.

For the most accurate results, this test must be conducted in the morning after at least 8 hours of fasting. It’s important not to eat or drink anything other than water during the fasting period, as this could affect the Glucose measurement.

An HbA1C level within the normal range suggests good blood sugar control, while elevated levels may indicate diabetes or a risk of developing diabetes. The fasting Glucose test helps to detect diabetes and can also be used to monitor glucose levels in those already diagnosed with the condition.

Understanding and managing your blood sugar levels is a critical aspect of maintaining overall health, especially as it relates to the prevention of diabetes-related complications.

What’s Checked

The Diabetes Panel checks for:

  • HbA1C (Glycated Haemoglobin): This test gives an average blood glucose level over the last two to three months, offering a longer-term view of blood sugar control.
  • Glucose (Fasting): Measures the amount of sugar in the blood after an overnight fast, providing a snapshot of your current blood sugar level.

Who Should Consider This Test?

  • Individuals with risk factors for diabetes such as obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, or a family history of the disease.
  • Those experiencing symptoms like increased thirst, frequent urination, or unexplained weight loss.
  • Patients with pre-diabetes or diabetes for monitoring and managing their condition.
