Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels is essential to your health. Persistently elevated blood sugar levels may increase your risk of heart disease, kidney damage, and stroke. 

This package measures your fasting glucose and HbA1c levels. It also includes a collection of screenings commonly ordered at an annual health visit to help evaluate your overall health by measuring a variety of components including cholesterol and lipids, calcium, electrolytes, as well as liver and kidney function.

Management & Prevention

If you have been diagnosed with prediabetes or diabetes by your doctor, it is crucial to carefully monitor blood cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, and weight as a first step in controlling the disease. People with diabetes are at increased risk of serious health complications, including premature death, vision loss, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, and amputation of toes, feet, or legs.2,3

Placeholder
Silent Symptoms

There are no symptoms for people with prediabetes, and diabetes may be severe before there are any warning signs. Likewise, people have no way of knowing they have high cholesterol, kidney or liver disease, or high blood pressure without being tested.3
