Understand your risk of prediabetes and diabetes with this blood test.
Why would you benefit from a diabetes check?
For your body to be able to carry out any of its normal functions, the cells within it need energy. Much of your body’s energy is supplied by the sugar, glucose, which is acquired from your diet. When it’s not regulated properly, it leads to diabetes — with type 1 and type 2 diabetes being the most common types.
An HbA1c test can help indicate your risk of developing pre-diabetes and type 2
diabetes — if you don’t have any condition that might affect your results. Or, if you have diabetes, an HbA1c test is a useful way to check how well you’re controlling your blood sugar levels.
