Diabetes Testing Information
While modern medicine has come far, diabetes can be a life-threatening condition without the proper testing and treatment. Our online diabetes tests analyze your levels of glucose, hemoglobin A1c, and cholesterol to help diagnose, treat and monitor abnormal blood sugar levels with ease.
Note that many of the diabetes tests and panels in this category require that you fast for 8 hours prior (i.e. nothing to eat or drink except water). Results are available within 24 to 72 hours post-collection through our secure online portal.
Control and Prevent Diabetes
Diabetes is a chronic condition defined by the body’s inability to create or use insulin in response to a rise in sugar levels.1 While no one knows how to prevent Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 is a slow-developing condition that can be prevented with healthy lifestyle changes.1 And both types can be controlled with the proper treatment. You can take the first step and take back control of your health by getting tested with a reliable diabetes testing provider.
Signs You Need Diabetes Testing
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 34.2 million Americans have diabetes and even more have prediabetes.2 If you should be experiencing the following diabetes symptoms, blood sugar testing is recommended:
- Abnormal hunger or thirst
- Weight loss
- Blurred vision
- Increased infection
- Frequent urination.3
Early detection is crucial when it comes to effective diabetes treatment and prevention. If you or a loved one is at risk, getting tested for diabetes as soon as possible can open the door to treatment.
