What does the test do?

Are you at risk for diabetes? The HbA1c blood test can help you find out. The HbA1c blood test is a simple and convenient way to screen for diabetes. This test measures your average blood sugar levels over the past three months, giving you an accurate picture of your blood sugar control.  It only requires a small sample of blood and can be done at your doctor’s office or a lab. With early detection and management, you can prevent or delay the onset of diabetes and its complications.

Pre-diabetes

Pre-Diabetes is a condition where your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. If you have pre-diabetes, you’re at increased risk for developing diabetes, but it’s not too late to make changes to prevent it. Lifestyle modifications like eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and losing weight can all help reduce your risk of developing the condition. Early signs include increased thirst, frequent urination, blurry vision, fatigue, and slow healing of cuts and bruises.

Why get tested?

According to Diabetes UK, as of 2021, there are an estimated 4.9 million people living with diabetes in the UK. It is a multi-system disease, left untreated it has the potential to do harm to your body over time.  Early detection helps to improve blood sugar levels, reducing the complications of the disease.
