What this test measures
Your HbA1c indicates your estimated average blood sugar levels over the last two to three months, while glucose levels indicate blood sugar at the time of testing. Together they can help screen for diabetes and prediabetes.
Who should get tested
Diabetes symptoms vary based on blood sugar levels. Consider getting tested if you’re experiencing:
- Increased thirst
- Blurred vision
- Frequent urination
Collection method – Finger prick sample
Our kits require just a few drops of blood from the fingertip, a clinically-validated method that is just as accurate (and typically less painful) than conventional blood collection. Afraid of needles? The needle on our lancet stays hidden until collection is complete.
