Diabetes Blood Tests
Glucose & HbA1c Test
- Monitor the effect of diabetes medications
- Identify blood sugar levels
- Accurate & fast results
Most tissues in the body rely on glucose for energy production. The pancreas controls the movement of glucose into most of the body’s cells and maintains healthy blood glucose levels by secreting the hormone insulin.
Diabetes is a condition in which the body is unable to regulate and maintain a normal balance between insulin and glucose. This can result from the pancreas’ inability to produce insulin or due to the body becoming insulin resistant.
The risks of developing diabetes, and the severity of diabetic symptoms, can be greatly reduced by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Ongoing treatment involves daily glucose monitoring and control, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly. Normalising blood glucose levels can also minimise or prevent vascular and kidney damage.
Our Diabetic Profile 1 testing includes Glucose & HbA1c.
