    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

    Diabetes is a chronic condition and has no cure. However, it can be managed effectively through medication, insulin injection and lifestyle and dietary changes. It also helps to periodically opt for medical tests to monitor the progression of the condition and gain a better understanding of the treatment required.
    Typically, these packages host several individual clinical examinations. The one offered by Apollo includes 75 tests that provide a comprehensive overview of the condition. These assessments can also help analyse a person's risk for developing diabetes. As such, the tests are broadly categorised into the following: Glucose Test Complete Urine Analysis Haemoglobin Examination Complete Blood Count (CBC) Renal Profile Lipid Profile Liver Function Assessment
    Results from the Apollo diabetic package are available within 36 hours of undergoing the tests. To book it or any other medical examination, visit the Apollo 24|7 app or the site from your browser. From there, type in the name of the package or test that you wish to opt for. The result will appear on the search page, following which you can add it to your cart.
    Some individual tests in diabetes health check-up packages are optional. These include an analysis of bilirubin and nitrate levels in urine. However, it is critical not to forego any of the hosted medical examinations as they are essential to providing a comprehensive overview of the condition for diabetic patients.
    If you are above 45 years old, consider opting for such test packages. The progression of age significantly increases the risk of diabetes. Some other factors that should prompt you to undergo such tests include: Frequent urination Severe and persistent thirst Family history of diabetes Personal history of heart-related conditions, high blood pressure and glucose levels or insulin resistance   
    Since the Apollo diabetic package includes a glucose examination, it is necessary to fast for 10-12 hours before undergoing the test. In addition, if you are on any medications currently, consult a doctor to learn about any interferences they may cause.
