Laboratory Testing Service

confidential, quantitative diagnostic test performed at home for determining the total amount of hemoglobin A1c in blood. Eliminates the inconvenience and high expense of arterial blood draws and laboratory analysis recommended for proper Diabetes screening and management.   Comparing the results of an initial HbA1c test to the results of subsequent tests can determine the progress made in properly managing diabetes. High blood serum Hemoglobin A1c readings have been confirmed and validated as a significant marker for Type I and II Diabetes.

Diabetes is a complicated, chronic disease that impairs the body's ability to produce or properly use insulin, which, in turn, causes the blood sugar level to increase. This build-up of sugar, without treatment, can cause blindness, heart attack, loss of feet or legs to amputation, kidney dysfunction, and even death. There is no cure for diabetes, but there are a number of medically recommended procedures to control and manage the disease. One important procedure is having a quarterly total hemoglobin A1c measurement and blood analysis coupled with standard daily glucose monitoring. One of the most important steps one can take is to comply their physician's request for a Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) measurement every three months. Test results are critical in allowing physicians to better direct patient treatment.

Approximately 15 to 16 million people in the United States are known to have diabetes. In addition, an estimated 8 million American adults have undiagnosed diabetes. That estimate does not include people who have borderline diabetes or pre-diabetes. Diabetes affects both men and women. Most forms of diabetes fall within two major categories: Type 1 is insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) or "juvenile onset." Fortunately, only about 5 - 10% of alI diabetic patients are affected with Type 1 (insulin-dependent). Type 2 is non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) or "adult onset." It usually occurs in patients over 35-40 years of age but can occur in children. Type 2 patients tend to be obese, and although not dependent on insulin for survival, may require it for hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) that is resistant to other treatment. Gestational diabetes develops in 2-5 % of all pregnancies. Although it usually disappears when pregnancy is over, it occasionally persists in women with previously undetected diabetes. Sometimes insulin is required. Most all women with gestational diabetes will have a recurrence in subsequent pregnancies. With each successive pregnancy, the diabetes has a tendency to begin sooner, become more severe, and develop into a permanent condition.

INTENDED USE:

The Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) Laboratory blood test is a laboratory procedure that measures the total amount of hemoglobin A1c in blood. The Hemoglobin A1c Test provides the same clinical results that can be obtained from a local medical laboratory without the high expense and inconvenience of physician appointments, laboratory fees, and often painful and unnecessary procedure of direct venous or arterial blood draws. The test is performed at home, takes less than 10 minutes and results are obtained in approximately the same time as those routinely ordered through a physician. The specimen collection process is quick, easy and virtually painless. Using the special lancet (included in the collection kit), several of drops of whole blood are taken from a finger prick and deposited onto a special collection card. The card is then sent to the laboratory for analysis. The  Laboratory tests your blood sample to see how much HbA1c is present, test results are then reviewed by a licensed physician, and then results are posted on the Laboratory Website for download.

PRINCIPLES OF THE TEST

Hemoglobin A1c measures provide the most reliable assessment of glucose management. The American Diabetes Association reported that as a result of the 10 year Diabetes Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) serious complications such as blindness, kidney failure, stroke and amputation were decreased by up to 67% by keeping blood sugar levels close to the non-diabetic range. Hemoglobin A1c tests and frequent blood sugar monitoring are the only way to demonstrate blood sugar control.
