Curated by Dr Sridevi, the Apollo Diabetes Panel - Basic comprises tests like CBC, fasting, LFT, and electrolytes serum that can not only monitor diabetes and its related effects but also accurately pinpoint whether an individual is at risk of developing other serious illnesses owing to diabetes. This test should be taken by people who are prediabetic, diabetic, or has a family history of diabetes.

Diabetes is a chronic health condition in which your body fails to generate sufficient insulin. Due to this malfunction, there is a build-up of excess blood sugar or glucose in your body. Over time, this health disorder can lead to vision loss, kidney failure, or heart disease.

If you notice these signs, it is crucial to undergo a blood sugar test:

  • Frequent or abnormal urination
  • High level of thirst
  • The extreme intensity of fatigue
  • Blurred vision
  • Unexpected weight loss
  • Numbness in the hands or feet

Your physician will recommend a blood sugar test for an accurate diagnosis of this condition. Generally, an all-inclusive test for diabetes aims to measure your blood glucose levels. The reports of such medical evaluations allow experts to gauge the intensity of diabetes.

So, such an assessment is also known as a Diabetes Panel - Basic in some regions. Usually, a sugar test evaluates other parameters like complete blood count and lipid profile. However, such comprehensive sugar test depends on the choice of your pathology lab.

Here are the main categories of tests present in a lucrative diabetes test package:

  • Glucose, Fasting: This category includes measuring fasting glucose levels. It is an essential part of the diabetic health checkup and offers information on short-term glycaemic control.
  • Glucose, Post Prandial (PP), 2 hours (post meal): It measures the blood glucose levels exactly 2 hours after a meal. The test is used to check for diabetes and to monitor how the effectiveness of diabetes treatment. Like glucose (fasting), this test also plays a vital role in  diabetic health checkup.
  • Creatinine, Serum: This test measures how well your kidneys are filtering creatinine, a chemical compound from your blood. Creatinine is a  waste left over from biological processes in your muscles.
  • HbA1C, Glycated Hemoglobin: This test reports your average level of blood glucose levels over the past 2 to 3 months.
  • Complete Urine Examination: The diagnostic test helps detect a number of health disorders, such as urinary tract infections, renal disease and diabetes. It involves checking the appearance, concentration and content of urine.
  • Complete blood count (CBC): There are over 20 tests under this category. These tests evaluate different components of your blood like haemoglobin, red blood cells count, total leucocytes, platelets, packed-cell volume, and others.

Such a comprehensive diabetic profile test can help diagnose the condition early on. As a result, your doctor can suggest necessary diet and lifestyle changes. Also, experienced physicians can prescribe suitable medicines after analysing all the results of a diabetes test package. This way, you can keep such a disorder in complete control.

In simple words, higher than normal values of HbA1c indicate the presence of excess sugar in your bloodstream. The readings can prove crucial to taking necessary precautions for preventing complications related to diabetes. So, ensure that you choose a test for diabetes that includes this medical evaluation.
You can control A1c levels by properly planning meals and eating consistently after three to five hours. Also, you need to take extra precautions in deciding the size of your meals. Generally, eating a small portion of food spread throughout the day is essential. Furthermore, aim to spread foods rich in carbohydrates in adequate quantity.
In most cases, people with diabetes should refrain from consuming French fries, processed meats, white carbohydrates, sweetened cereals, and dried fruits in large quantities.
