Diabetes Screening Panel FAQ

What is the Diabetes Screening panel?

The Diabetes Screening panel measures the blood levels of Glucose & Hemoglobin A1c.

Why is the Diabetes Screening panel important?

Blood Glucose, also known as blood sugar, varies during the day. The blood glucose test as a screening test for diabetes and a level less than 140 is considered safe. Elevated blood glucose levels are suggestive of diabetes. The HbA1c is a good screening test for diabetes. It measures the average blood glucose over the past 120 days so that you can see how well your blood sugar has been controlled over the past few months. If your level is between 5.7 and 6.4, you are at an increased risk for diabetes. A level >6.4 would suggest that you have diabetes. If you already have diabetes, you should routinely monitor your Hemoglobin A1c to make sure that it is below 7.0 to ensure that you have adequate blood sugar control.

Diabetes Screening Test Panel - More Information

The Diabetes Screening Panel checks blood markers that, when abnormal, are highly suggestive of the presence of diabetes. While the glucose test will identify abnormal blood glucose levels at a specific point in time, the hemoglobin A1c test will check the average blood glucose levels over the past several months.

Many people start to worry that they might have diabetes when they have symptoms such as frequent thirst or urination (especially at night) or if a close relative gets diagnosed with it. While getting equipment to check one's blood glucose at home is a good starting point, there are instances when a single reading won't paint a more complete picture as to whether one might be at risk. In those situations, getting a blood glucose test and a hemoglobin A1c test through s panel like the Diabetes Screening Panel will give one a better indication as to how stable the blood glucose levels have been over a period of time.
