When to Take Diabetic Profile
Diabetes results due to lower insulin level. Insulin is a hormone produced by pancreas to control blood sugar levels in the body. The problem can even result when the body does not respond to the insulin level. If you have a sedentary lifestyle or have a family member who is diabetic, we recommend you to take Diabetic Profile in Bandra using our services at Batra's Diagnostic Centre. Also people with body mass index higher than 23 should take Diabetic Profile in Khar, according to the American Diabetes Association. This will help you in early detection and prevent further problem. People like women who have had gestational diabetes and persons diagnosed with pre diabetes need to take tests regularly.
Understanding Different Test Types
There are many types of tests that are performed at our lab using quality lab equipments and devices. The Diabetic Profile include tests like Glycosylated Haemoglobin Test (HbA1C) which does not require fasting and gives a measurement of blood sugar level for the past 2-3 months. The following chart will give you a rough estimate of diabetic indicators:
- Higher than 6.5% indicates that the person has diabetes
