    Diabetes is one of the most common chronic health problems and affects the production or use of insulin. This directly leads to irregular glucose (blood sugar) levels in the body. As such, a diabetes check-up package can not only monitor the condition and its related effects but also accurately pinpoint whether an individual is at risk of developing it.

    Regardless, it may be challenging to identify if you have diabetes, especially in the early stages. This is due to the symptoms typically being subtle or developing gradually. However, specific clinical markers can indicate an undiagnosed case of the condition. These include the following:

    • Severe thirst
    • Persistent fatigue
    • Unusual hunger or appetite
    • Blurred vision
    • Frequent need to urinate
    • Slow-healing cuts, bruises or sores

    If left untreated, diabetes results in elevated glucose levels, subsequently damaging nerves and blood vessels. Some of the other related complications include:

    • Significantly increased risk of a stroke or heart attack
    • Gradual loss of vision or difficulty seeing
    • Numbness in the hands or feet 

    Opting for a diabetes check-up package can help prevent these issues from occurring entirely. As such, Apollo 24|7 offers a collection of tests that provides a comprehensive overview of the condition. The hosted package includes a total of 75 individual clinical examinations and can be broadly categorised into the following divisions:

    • Glucose Test
    • Complete Urine Analysis
    • Haemoglobin Examination
    • Blood Count
    • Renal Profile
    • Lipid Profile
    • Liver Function Assessment

    Each listed category deals with specific biological areas. For instance, the included urine analysis has 18 separate tests that assess the presence of pus and epithelial cells in addition to the following:

    • Physical irregularities (Colour, transparency, pH levels) 
    • Biochemical abnormalities (Protein and glucose levels, presence of ketones)
    • Meanwhile, the Complete Blood Count (CBC) blood count examines haemoglobin levels and Red Blood Cells (RBCs), in addition to a leukocyte count (white blood cells). Collectively, these clinical assessments can provide an accurate medical analysis for a diabetic patient. Conversely, they can also identify if you are at risk for developing the condition.

    Notwithstanding, you should consider opting for the Apollo diabetic package if you:

    • Are overweight with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of more than 25
    • Have a history of high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar levels, insulin resistance or low HDL cholesterol
    • Currently suffer from or previously experienced any heart-related conditions
    • Have family members diagnosed with diabetes
    • Have a medical history of gestational diabetes or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

    It’s essential to note that a person's age significantly increases the risk for diabetes. Thus, if you are above 45 years old, it is crucial to opt for one of the primary diabetes health check-up packages to establish a standard range of individual blood sugar levels.

    Frequently asked questions

    The risk factors for Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes vary slightly. However, the common risk factors include a family history of diabetes, obesity, age, high blood pressure, race and ethnicity. You might also develop diabetes if you have a sedentary lifestyle and consume foods high in trans-fat and saturated fat. Getting diabetes tests and diagnosis done at the right time is crucial.
    Anyone suffering from Type 1, Type 2 and gestational diabetes must undergo the HbA1c test for diabetes diagnosis to check their blood sugar levels. You can also opt for these diabetes tests and diagnosis if you suffer from symptoms like frequent urination, sudden weight loss and extreme fatigue.
    Anyone above the age of 45 go for diabetes tests and diagnosis. They might take the test after every three years, especially those who are obese. However, if someone has multiple risk factors for diabetes, they can opt for diabetes tests and diagnosis more frequently.
    Fasting is necessary whether it's an HbA1c test for diabetes diagnosis or any other procedure. It allows the doctor to monitor your blood sugar levels when there's no food in your system. In this situation, the blood sugar levels must be low. However, if you have diabetes, the levels might fluctuate and can be on the higher side.
    Diabetes increases the chances of cardiovascular diseases like heart attack, stroke, coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis. Moreover, diabetes can also cause kidney damage, nerve damage, retinal blood vessel damage, Alzheimer's disease and hearing problems.
    To avoid undergoing diabetes tests and diagnosis procedures, you need a balanced diet. Consume fruits, vegetables, legumes and low-fat dairy while avoiding fatty foods. Also, participate in physical activity or exercise regularly to maintain your weight.
