What is a Diabetes Screening Package?
Diabetes screening tests are done to find out whether or not a person has pre-diabetes or diabetes. Our Diabetes screening package consists of critical clinical tests aimed to measure your blood sugar levels like the Fasting Plasma Glucose test (FPG) and additionally to measure your Hemoglobin A1c levels (HbA1c). The FPG test measures your blood sugar level at the time you take the test, whereas, the HbA1C results give you a picture of your average blood sugar control for the past 2-3 months and is being used increasingly by physicians as a screening test. Why is Diabetes Screening Package important to me?
The Diabetes screening package may prove to be of value for patients who fall in high risk category for diabetes because of family history and/or are already suffering but are not currently diagnosed.
