Diabetes Test

Get a clear picture of how your body produces, manages, and stores insulin, and how it's affecting your health. Our test will help you identify high or low blood sugar levels and provide you with useful information about understanding how other factors, such as illness or stress, affect your blood sugar levels.

Glucose Monitoring

Testing your blood glucose levels is one of the best ways to understand your diabetes predisposition and understand how different foods, medications, and activities affect your glucose levels.

Hemoglobin A1C (hbA1c)

The term HbA1C refers to glycated haemoglobin. Briefly, it develops when haemoglobin, a protein within red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body, joins with glucose in the blood, becoming ‘glycated’. By measuring HbA1C, you will be able to get an overall picture of what your average blood sugars have been over a period of weeks/months. If you are pre-diabetic or diabetic and you’ve adjusted your diet and physical activity, then this is a great way to track the improvement over time.
Biomarker tested: HbA1c (Glycosylated Haemaglobin)

Glucose Metabolism

Glucose is the main type of sugar in the blood. In fact, it is key to keeping the mechanisms of the body in top working order. When your glucose levels are optimal, it often goes unnoticed. But when they stray from recommended boundaries, you will notice the unhealthy effects it has on normal functioning. Whilst glucose is important, it is best in moderation. This is because levels that are unhealthy or out of control may have permanent and serious effects.

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.
