How We Diagnose Prediabetes
Our complimentary, advanced testing examines several biomarkers, or chemicals and proteins in the blood, that can indicate a prediabetic state. Similar screenings performed at a typical’s doctor’s office only measure fasting blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c–indicators that are important in the diagnosis of diabetes, but they don’t offer a comprehensive picture of a person’s health.
Our cutting-edge screening looks at these biomarkers plus several more, including C-peptide, homocysteine, thyroid hormones, insulin, testosterone, vitamin B12, vitaimin D, and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), a type of cholesterol. Our test also measures C-reactive protein, an indicator of inflammation, a condition that contributes to the development of diabetes.
If your results show that you have prediabetes or are at high risk and appear to be trending toward prediabetes, we have a comprehensive treatment plan that can help stop the development of type 2 diabetes.
