Sugar Monitoring

Understand what it means to be pre-diabetic and diabetic — our test will report any symptoms you may have that suggests diabetes and whether medication or lifestyle changes can help you achieve a healthy life.

HbA1c Testing

A key benefit of testing HbA1c is to check whether you might be at risk of type 2 diabetes before you are potentially diagnosed. If your results indicate pre-diabetes, you’re then in a position to make the required dietary and lifestyle changes to reduce your risk of becoming diabetic. Once aware, you can track the impact of changes you've made to improve it. If you are pre-diabetic and you’ve adjusted your diet and activity, then this is a great way to track the improvement over time.
Biomarker tested: HbA1c (Glycosylated Haemaglobin)

Glucose Metabolism

Glucose is the key source of energy for the human body. Blood glucose is commonly called blood sugar, which comes from the food you eat.  Blood glucose is primarily used for energy. The sugar that is not needed as a fuel for your body right away gets stored in cells for later use.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of taking a Diabetes test?

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder and can be classified as type 1 or type 2. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. Insulin is required by the body to regulate blood glucose levels. However, if an individual has type 1 diabetes then they are unable to produce enough insulin to control their blood sugar levels. Type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, is a metabolic disorder which results in high blood sugar levels (hyperglycaemia) due to either not using insulin efficiently to control glucose or not being able to produce insulin in sufficient amounts. Leaving your insulin levels, sugar levels and overall diabetes risk unchecked and undiagnosed can be life-threatening, which is why it is important to take a diabetes test once in your life.

I thought a Diabetes test only looked at Glucose, what is HbA1c?

HbA1c is formed from haemoglobin (the protein that gives blood its distinctive red colour) and glucose, when glucose found in the bloodstream is attached to haemoglobin. Unlike a blood glucose test, the HbA1c test shows a longer-term trend associated with blood sugar levels as it takes a look at the average reading of glucose levels over a period of 2-3 months. Knowing your glucose levels over a prolonged time can show you a more accurate representation of your health and what you may need to do to control your sugar levels to avoid risks of developing the disease.
