Test measures
For the HbA1c & Cholesterol Test we analyze:
  • Cholesterol
  • HbA1c
Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that is vital for the normal functioning of the body. In the blood, cholesterol is transported in the form of lipoprotein complexes (HDL and LDL). Total cholesterol is a measure of the total amount in the blood, including all the different cholesterol components.

HbA1c

Hemoglobin (Hb) is a protein inside red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to all body parts. Glucose (sugar) can attach itself permanently to hemoglobin forming glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c). The rate of this formation is proportional to the blood glucose concentrations. HbA1c levels are reflective of blood glucose levels over the past six to eight weeks and do not reflect daily ups and downs of blood glucose.

Symptoms
You should check your long-term blood sugar and cholesterol levels frequently if you:
  • Have a family history of high cholesterol or diabetes
  • Have sugar cravings
  • Experience increased thirst
  • Suffer from headaches

Any Questions?

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

What does a high HbA1c level mean?

Slightly increased HbA1c levels indicate increased a risk of developing diabetes in the future (prediabetes). High HbA1c levels indicate a very poor control of blood glucose. The problem with high blood sugar levels is, that often there are no symptoms at all. Your sugar can be high for a while, and you may not even know it. When your blood sugar stays high for longer periods of time though, you may feel tired and might have less energy. You might also feel very thirsty and drink a lot, leading to you peeing more than normal and waking a lot in the middle of the night. Another long-term symptom is that cuts or sores take a long time to heal or do not heal well at all.

What does a high cholesterol level mean?

Increased cholesterol levels may have a negative impact on health. High cholesterol has no symptoms per se. It does, however, rise the risk of vessel conclusion and heart disease. Therefore, cholesterol levels can be used to assess your risk of cardiovascular disease.

How can I reduce my HbA1c level?

Ways to lower your HbA1c levels may consist of dietary modifications, physical activity, or medications. The best way is to talk your results over with your doctor or nutritionist to receive a personal treatment plan.

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

Prepare the blood draw well: Hold your hand a little longer under warm water and circle your arm to stimulate blood circulation. Prick the finger on the side, not directly on top of the fingertip. The middle or ring finger of the non-dominant hand is usually best. When piercing, place your finger on a firm surface to avoid unconscious pulling back. A light squeeze and massage towards the fingertip helps stimulate blood flow.
