Diabetes Management Panel*.

$41.83

A diabetes management panel is comprised of two common tests, a glucose screen and a hemoglobin A1c test. These two lab tests can be combined to help detect or monitor a diabetic condition.

FIND A LAB

Glucose* (Diabetes Screen).

$12.83

This test is performed to identify the glucose level in your blood to detect if you have low blood glucose (hypoglycemia) or high blood glucose (hyperglycemia), and can determine your risk for diabetes or a pre‐diabetic condition.


FIND A LAB

Hemoglobin A1c.

$29

The A1c test evaluates the average amount of glucose in the blood over the last 2 to 3 months by measuring the percentage of glycated (glycosylated) hemoglobin.

Still Have Questions?

What is diabetes?

+

Diabetes is a leading cause of death worldwide, particularly in developed countries. It is estimated that nearly one‐third of all people with diabetes in the U.S. are not even aware they have the disease. Diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to properly process glucose, a form of sugar found in your bloodstream, into energy.

What is a hemoglobin A1c screen used for?

+

A hemoglobin A1c test helps identify those at an increased risk of developing diabetes, as well as monitor a diabetic patient to help in treatment decisions. The A1c test evaluates the average amount of glucose in the blood over the last 2 to 3 months by measuring the percentage of glycated (glycosylated) hemoglobin.

What is hemoglobin?

+

Hemoglobin is an oxygen-transporting protein found inside red blood cells. There are several types of normal hemoglobin, but the predominant form – about 95%-98% – is hemoglobin A. As glucose circulates in the blood, some of it spontaneously binds to hemoglobin A. Hemoglobin A1c, also called glycated hemoglobin, is hemoglobin with glucose attached. The higher the level of glucose in the blood, the more glycated hemoglobin is formed.
