Diabetes PanelMillions of Americans have diabetes and millions more are either undiagnosed or have prediabetes. Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that can have a significant impact on one’s health, quality of life, and life expectancy. Early detection and monitoring are an important part of helping to prevent the advancement of this disease and complications.
This comprehensive panel assesses your overall metabolic health and blood sugar levels. It can provide important information as to whether you may be prediabetic or have diabetes. And this panel can also be useful in monitoring how well your treatment program is going.
The Diabetes Panel Includes:
CBC (Complete Blood Count)
A CBC gives important information about the kinds and numbers of cells in the blood, especially red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. This panel looks for many illnesses, including anemia, infections, and leukemia, in your blood.
CMP (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel)
CMP is a blood test that measures your sugar (glucose) level, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function. This panel includes ALT/(SPGT), alkaline phosphatase, AST/SGOT, bilirubin total, bun, calcium, carbon dioxide total, chloride, creatinine, globulin, glucose, potassium, protein total, sodium. AG ratio, bun/creatinine ratio.
This test detects blood sugar imbalances, such as high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Measuring glucose can screen for prediabetes and diabetes and is also important for monitoring persons with diabetes.
The hemoglobin A1C test provides a measurement of a person’s average blood glucose levels over the past 2-3 months. This serves as a helpful indicator of how well blood sugar is being controlled.
