Details
Who should take the test?

This test is recommended for individuals who are either currently managing diabetes or those who have a risk of developing diabetes. Managing diabetes effectively requires a comprehensive understanding of how your body processes glucose. Our Comprehensive Diabetes Test is designed to provide a detailed picture of your blood sugar health, encompassing four critical markers: Insulin, Glucose, HbA1c, and Estimated Average Glucose (EAG).

By evaluating these key indicators, you can gain insights into how well your current treatment or lifestyle modifications are working and make informed decisions to optimize your health. It is particularly valuable for individuals who want to proactively manage their diabetes or those who need to assess the effectiveness of their current diabetes management strategies.

How does it work?

Once your order has been processed, you will be sent a blood sample collection kit. You collect your sample from the comfort of your own home and send it right back to our CLIA-certified partner laboratory. We analyze your sample and inform you that your results have been uploaded to your confidential account on our secure website.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

Following the completion of the analysis, you will receive a lab report that includes explanations for the analyzed markers and details on potential symptoms linked to imbalances. Additionally, we strongly advise that you discuss the results you receive from us with your healthcare provider or practitioner.

Moreover, additional information can be found on our website, particularly within various test categories, “health conditions,” and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to reach out to us by sending an email to contact@verisana.com.

How is my privacy protected?

Samples for our tests are collected in the privacy of your own home. Both we and our partner laboratories (which may be contracted by us to conduct some or all analyses of your test) take customer privacy very seriously.

You will be the sole person with access to this information, and we guarantee that we will not disclose your information to any unauthorized third parties. Additionally, all samples will be disposed of after analysis. Both our Verisana portal for registering kits and receiving results as well as our CLIA-certified partner laboratories are fully HIPAA-compliant.

Test measures
For the Comprehensive Diabetes Test we analyze:
  • Insulin
  • Glucose
  • HbA1c
  • EAG
Insulin

Insulin, a vital pancreatic hormone, regulates blood glucose levels by aiding glucose absorption for energy or storage. Measuring insulin levels within the reference range of 2.6-24.9 uIU/mL holds significance in diabetes management.

For Type 1 diabetes, low or undetectable insulin levels, alongside high blood glucose, indicate the need for insulin therapy. In Type 2 diabetes, assessing insulin levels helps gauge insulin production and usage efficiency, with elevated levels suggesting insulin resistance when paired with high blood glucose and HbA1c.

Interpreting insulin alongside HbA1c and glucose provides a comprehensive view of glucose control. Elevated insulin can also signal insulin resistance, a risk factor in prediabetes. Understanding insulin’s role alongside other markers is crucial for effective diabetes diagnosis and management.

Glucose

Glucose, a fundamental sugar, serves as the primary energy source for the body’s cells, making its blood level a vital indicator of metabolic health, especially in diabetes assessment. Blood glucose levels are influenced by diet, physical activity, and the body’s insulin response. Elevated blood glucose, known as hyperglycemia, can signal diabetes or prediabetes, leading to long-term health complications and short-term symptoms like increased thirst and fatigue. Conversely, low blood glucose, or hypoglycemia, is a concern for individuals with diabetes, potentially causing symptoms such as dizziness and confusion.

When evaluating diabetes or diabetes risk, glucose levels should be considered alongside Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), insulin levels, and Estimated Average Glucose (EAG) to provide a comprehensive understanding of an individual’s glycemic status and overall health.

HbA1c

Hemoglobin (Hb), a crucial protein in red blood cells, transports oxygen throughout the body. When glucose binds permanently to hemoglobin, it forms glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), and the rate of this formation is linked to blood glucose concentrations.

HbA1c levels reflect blood glucose levels over the past six to eight weeks, providing a more stable view of glycemic control. Elevated HbA1c levels signal an increased risk of future diabetes (prediabetes), while high levels indicate poor blood glucose control, often without noticeable symptoms. Persistent high blood sugar can lead to fatigue, excessive thirst, frequent urination, and delayed wound healing. Lowering HbA1c levels can be achieved through dietary changes, physical activity, or medications, best discussed with a healthcare provider for a personalized treatment plan.

Additionally, recent research suggests a potential association between low HbA1c values and increased all-cause mortality risk in individuals without diabetes, though the clinical implications are not fully understood.

EAG

Estimated Average Glucose (EAG) offers a practical perspective on blood sugar control by converting Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) percentages into average blood glucose levels, presented in units familiar to daily glucose monitoring (mg/dL or mmol/L). This bridging metric provides insights into long-term glucose management, reflecting the average blood glucose levels over the previous two to three months.

EAG serves as a crucial tool for individuals managing diabetes or at risk. Normal EAG levels align with effective glucose regulation, indicating a low risk of diabetes-related complications. Elevated EAG levels suggest potential prediabetes or diabetes, prompting a review of management strategies. Low EAG levels, while less common, may indicate an increased hypoglycemia risk, especially with insulin or specific medications, necessitating careful management.

EAG’s multi-month perspective offers a more comprehensive understanding of glucose control, guiding treatment decisions and lifestyle adjustments. Regularly monitoring EAG is vital for optimal health and preventing long-term complications associated with poor blood sugar control.

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

What exactly is the Comprehensive Diabetes Test, and why is it important?

The Comprehensive Diabetes Test is a valuable monitoring tool that assesses your blood sugar health using four critical markers: Insulin, Glucose, HbA1c, and Estimated Average Glucose (EAG). It is essential for understanding how well your body processes glucose and managing diabetes effectively.

How is this test different from regular blood glucose monitoring?

This test goes beyond traditional glucose monitoring by providing a more comprehensive view of your blood sugar control over an extended period. It evaluates multiple markers to give you a holistic understanding of your diabetes management.

Who should consider taking the Comprehensive Diabetes Test?

Individuals managing diabetes, those at risk of diabetes, and anyone looking to optimize their diabetes management plan can benefit from this test.

What should I do if my test results indicate high or low levels in any of the markers?

If your results show abnormal levels, it's crucial to consult with your healthcare provider. They can help you develop a personalized treatment plan, which may include dietary modifications, physical activity, medication adjustments, or lifestyle changes.

I am not getting enough blood from my finger, what can I do?

In order to draw more blood from your finger, begin by warming your hand under running warm water for a few moments and gently rotate your arm to enhance blood circulation. When it's time to prick your finger, aim for the side of the finger rather than the tip. It's often easier to use the middle or ring finger of your non-dominant hand. To prevent any involuntary withdrawal during the piercing, place your finger firmly on a stable surface. Finally, apply a gentle squeeze and massage towards the fingertip to encourage blood flow.
