Diabetes Risk (HbA1c) Test
Your blood sugar acts a critical barometer when it comes to your health, as elevated blood sugar levels are often indicative of prediabetes and diabetes: a serious disease that can ultimately affect the health and function of other parts of the body including your nervous system, eyes, and kidneys.
This HbA1c (hemoglobin A1c) test provides a measure of your average blood sugar level over an extended period (typically 8-12 weeks) and is a useful tool for both detecting and/or monitoring diabetes. Standard glucose tests can only measure sugar levels in the blood at the time the sample is collected.
No special preparation.
