Diabetes health test measures the effect of raised blood sugar levels over the preceding weeks and months, to evaluate diabetes risk and control. Early detection helps prevent future complications such as heart disease.
The diabetes health status test evaluates pre-diabetes and diabetes by measuring the effect of raised blood sugar levels over the preceding weeks and months. It's a key tool to understand blood sugar control and reduce risks through lifestyle changes or medication. Detecting signs of pre-diabetes early allows for preventive measures to reduce the risk of diabetes and related complications such as heart disease, kidney damage, and nerve damage.
We're unable to offer blood tests for those under the age of 18 unless it is part of a routine GP appointment and the clinician believes it suitable.

Diabetes is a chronic medical condition characterised by high blood sugar levels due to insufficient insulin production or the body's inability to utilise it effectively.
Pre-diabetes is a condition indicating that you are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes in your lifetime. It occurs when blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet, exercise, and weight loss can prevent or delay the onset of diabetes. Early detection and management of pre-diabetes can improve health outcomes and reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes increases the risk of several serious health problems, including heart disease, stroke, nerve damage, kidney damage, eye damage, and foot damage. Proper diabetes management is crucial to reduce the risk of these significant complications.
The diabetes health status test measures different parameters which assess the effect of raised blood sugar levels over the preceding weeks and months in your body.
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, it is recommended that you get an HbA1c blood test at least twice a year. If you have pre-diabetes or are at risk of developing diabetes. In that case, it is recommended that you get the test annually. If you are over 50 years it is recommended that you get this test done 1-2 yearly. When over 60, getting tested on an annual basis would be recommended.
High blood sugar levels can damage your blood vessels and organs over time, leading to various complications, including cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, nerve damage, and blindness.
Managing diabetes or pre-diabetes involves maintaining healthy blood sugar levels through regular physical activity, healthy eating habits, and medication as prescribed by your healthcare provider. Regular monitoring of your blood sugar levels can be important as well as attending routine check-ups with your healthcare provider.
