Diabetes Check

Sample: Whole Blood (Venous Blood / or less painful  easy to use Finger Prick Test)

Blood Biochemistry test for HbA1c and Random  Glucose.

About the Test:

The amount of glucose or sugar circulating in the blood is measured by random glucose test and the haemoglobin HbA1c test measures the amount of blood sugar (glucose) attached to your haemoglobin.

It is an important blood test that provide indication of how well your diabetes is controlled over past three months.

Test For: 


  • HBA1C is an average blood sugar level over a period of the past 3 months.
  • HbA1c is also known as glycated haemoglobin. Glycated haemoglobin is the result of your body’s glucose (sugar) attaching to your haemoglobin. When your body can’t properly utilise the sugar, more of it binds to your haemoglobin and concentrates in your blood. If your HbA1c is high, that means you have too much sugar in your blood. As a result, you’re more at risk for diabetic complications, such as kidney problems, heart attacks, nerve damage, eye problems, and foot complications. Blood cells’ cell membranes change as a result of glycated haemoglobin’s rise in highly reactive free radicals. Blood flow is slowed as a result of blood cell aggregation and increased blood viscosity. Glycated haemoglobin also harms cells by causing inflammation, which results in the formation of atherosclerotic plaque (atheroma).
  • You can minimise your risk of life-threatening complications by being aware of your HbA1c level and what you can do to lower it. This requires routine HbA1c monitoring. That is an important check that is included in your annual health check, so this test must be performed for you at least once a year. But it will only be done every three to six months if your HbA1c is high or requires a bit of extra attention. It’s crucial not to skip these tests.
