arrow_back_ios Minimum Diabetic Profile


Diabetes is a group of conditions linked by an inability to produce enough insulin and/or to respond to insulin. This causes high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia) and can lead to a number of acute and chronic health problems, some of them life-threatening.

Diabetes is fast gaining the status of a potential epidemic in India with more than 62 million diabetic individuals currently diagnosed with the disease.4

People with diabetes are unable to process glucose, the body's primary energy source, effectively. Normally, after a meal, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose and other simple sugars. This causes blood glucose levels to rise and stimulates the pancreas to release insulin into the bloodstream. Insulin is a hormone produced by the beta cells in the pancreas. It regulates the transport of glucose into most of the body's cells and works with glucagon, another pancreatic hormone, to maintain blood glucose levels within a narrow range.

If someone is unable to produce enough insulin, or if the body's cells are resistant to its effects (insulin resistance), then less glucose is transported from the blood into cells. Blood glucose levels remain high but the body's cells "starve." This can cause both short-term and long-term health problems, depending on the severity of the insulin deficiency and/or resistance. Diabetics typically have to control their blood glucose levels on a daily basis and over time to avoid health problems and complications. Treatment, which may involve specialized diets, exercise and/or medications, including insulin, aims to ensure that blood glucose does not get too high or too low.

The goals of diabetes testing are to screen for high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia), to detect and diagnose diabetes and prediabetes, to monitor and control glucose levels over time, and to detect and monitor complications.

Test included

• Blood Sugar Fasting
• Blood Sugar Post Prandial
• Cholesterol Total
• Glycosylated Haemoglobin (HbA1c)
• Microalbumin Level (Urine)

Blood Sugar Fasting
Glucose is the primary energy source for the body's cells and the only energy source for the brain and nervous system. A steady supply must be available for use, and a relatively constant level of glucose must be maintained in the blood. High levels of glucose most frequently indicate diabetes, but many other diseases and conditions can also cause elevated blood glucose. This test is done to determine • If the blood glucose level is within a healthy range
• To screen for and diagnose diabetes and prediabetes and to monitor for high blood glucose (hyperglycemia) or low blood glucose (hypoglycemia)
• To check for glucose in your urine

Blood Sugar Post Prandial
A blood sugar post prandial test is a blood test that measures blood glucose levels following a meal. Also known as Postprandial Plasma Glucose Test (PPG) it show how tolerant the body is to glucose.

Cholesterol Total
Cholesterol is a substance (a steroid) that is essential for life. It forms the membranes for cells in all organs and tissues in the body. It is used to make hormones that are essential for development, growth, and reproduction. It forms bile acids that are needed to absorb nutrients from food. The test for cholesterol measures total cholesterol that is carried in the blood.

Glycosylated Haemoglobin (HbA1c)
HbA1c, also called A1c or glycated hemoglobin, is hemoglobin with glucose attached. 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. This test helps to identify those at an increased risk of developing diabetes and to help diagnose diabetes by monitoring a person's diabetes. Insulin Antibody

Microalbumin Level (Urine)
A sensitive test that is used to monitor people with diabetes for small amounts of albumin, the main blood protein, in the urine. Over time, diabetes can begin to affect kidney function and this test is an early indicator that diabetes has caused some kidney damage.
