Managing diabetes just got a whole lot easier.

Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels is essential to your health. Persistently elevated blood sugar levels may increase your risk of heart disease, kidney damage, and stroke. 

This package measures your fasting glucose and HbA1c levels. It also includes a collection of screenings commonly ordered at an annual health visit to help evaluate your overall health by measuring a variety of components including cholesterol and lipids, calcium, electrolytes, as well as liver and kidney function. 

If you have been previously diagnosed with diabetes, this screening can be used to monitor aspects of your condition under the supervision of your healthcare provider.

Why Consider This Test

Screening Recommendations

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends that you should be tested if you are:1 Older than 45 years or are overweight, younger than 45 years, and have one or more additional risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, family history of diabetes, African-American, Asian-American, Latino/Hispanic-American, Native American or of Pacific Islander descent and history of gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy) or delivering a baby more than 9 pounds.

Management & Prevention

If you have been diagnosed with prediabetes or diabetes by your doctor, it is crucial to carefully monitor blood cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, and weight as a first step in controlling the disease. People with diabetes are at increased risk of serious health complications, including premature death, vision loss, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, and amputation of toes, feet, or legs.2,3

Silent Symptoms

There are no symptoms for people with prediabetes, and diabetes may be severe before there are any warning signs. Likewise, people have no way of knowing they have high cholesterol, kidney or liver disease, or high blood pressure without being tested.3
