Diabetes Panels




Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, and is a major contributor to heart disease and strokes!  Our Diabetes Panel provides an assessment of blood glucose levels and may be used in the diagnosis of diabetes or to monitor diabetes treatment.
Includes 5 exams
(CBC) Complete Blood Count:
This is a routine screening test that measures the concentration of white blood cells (leukocytes), red blood cells (erythrocytes), and platelets (thrombocytes). This test is used to evaluate a patient’s overall health and is also useful in diagnosing many disorders, such as anemia, infections, leukemia and bleeding problems.
(CMP) 14 test Chemistry Panel:
This is a routine screening panel composed of 14 tests that measure the levels of electrolytes such as sodium and potassium as well as glucose and protein levels in the blood. This panel also measures the function of the liver and kidneys.
Fasting Glucose:
This test is used to determine the amount of glucose, or sugar, in the blood after you have not eaten for at least 8 hours. This is one of the tests used to confirm the diagnosis of diabetes.
Hemoglobin A1c:
This test measures how much glucose, or sugar, is stuck to red blood cells. This test provides an estimate of how well blood glucose has been controlled over a 6 to 12 week period. The greater the hemoglobin A1c, the greater the risks of developing complications related to diabetes.
Diabetic Urinalysis (with Micro Albumin)
Albumin is a protein that is filtered by the kidneys and is not usually found in the urine. The diabetic urinalysis tests for the presence of this protein in the urine. This test can help determine how well current diabetes treatment is working and signal the presence of kidney disease caused by diabetes.
