HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY LAB TEST RESULTS?

DESCRIPTION:

Nearly 6 million people don’t realize that diabetes is attacking their bodies.

The Diabetes Maintenance Panel is an effective panel for both diabetics and for those who want to see if they have diabetes.

The four tests in this panel will give you and your doctor a lot of knowledge. The Complete Blood Count (CBC) tests for blood disorders such as infection or anemia; the Fasting Glucose is used to detect both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, to help diagnose diabetes, and to monitor glucose levels in persons with diabetes; the Hemoglobin A1c can detect pre diabetes, diagnose it, or see if diabetes is under control; and finally, the Diabetic Urinalysis will determine if albumin (protein) is found in your blood (if so, it’s possible your kidneys aren’t working properly).

The information gained from the four tests in this panel will give you and your physician the necessary information to help monitor and/or adjust your diabetic medications.

WHY DO I NEED A DIABETES MAINTENANCE PANEL OF LAB TESTS?

Diabetes can be a silent killer if left undetected and is the leading cause of blindness and kidney failure.  It can also increase your chances of having a heart attack, stroke or infection.

Monitoring your diabetes may give you an opportunity to prevent the onset of these side effects or keep your diabetes from advancing.
