– Dark spot appears on skin

– Numbness or reduced ability to feel pain or temperature changes

3. Who Is Diabetes Screening Test Panel (Advanced) Ideal For?

The test panel is suitable for the following subjects:

– Those with a history of blood sugar disorders (HbA1c index ≥ 5,7% – equivalent to 39 mmol/mol), fasting blood glucose disorders, impaired glucose tolerance in previous tests, or other signs of clinical insulin resistance. 

– Patients with a history of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

– Women who have had polycystic ovary syndrome or gestational diabetes.

4. What Tests Does Diabetes Test Panel (Advanced) Perform? 

The test panel at Diag includes:

– Hb1Ac

– Glucose fasting

– eFGR

– Creatinine* 

– Urinalysis

– Microalbumin/Creatinine ratio

5. What Does Diabetes Test Panel’s (Advanced) Index Mean?

The index implication is: 

– Glucose fasting – A blood test that measures a patient’s blood sugar level after about 08 to 12 hours without eating, with the meaning of the results being: 

In the reference level: No diabetes.

Higher than the reference level between 100 and 125 mg/dL: Sign of pre-diabetes.

Higher than the reference level of 126 mg/dL or more: Sign of diabetes.

– HbA1c – A blood test to check the amount of glucose attached to the hemoglobin molecule in the body’s red blood cells for 3 months, with the meaning of the results being:

In the reference level: No diabetes.

Higher than the reference level between 5.7% and 6.4%: Sign of pre-diabetes.

Higher than the reference level from above 6.5%: Sign of diabetes. 

– Urinalysis: Evaluates the overall health situation by analyzing 10 parameters in urine to find out the causes of disease.
– eGFR: This parameter is calculated based on the level of creatinine in the blood. It shows how well the kidneys are filtering.
– Creatinine*: This test measures the level of creatinine in the blood and can provide information about how well the kidneys are working in filtering waste from the blood.
– Microalbumin/Creatinine ratio: This ratio is one of the first signs of kidney disease.
