Do you have (pre) diabetes? This test is for people who are unsure whether they have diabetes. When you have diabetes, the body is no longer able to regulate blood sugar. This is often accompanied by all kinds of symptoms such as fatigue, frequent urination and in some cases blurred vision. Early diagnosis is important to prevent serious damage to the cardiovascular system. Based on the results of our test, it can be determined whether you have (pre) diabetes.

Measure: The amount of glucose in your blood and gives an indication of you sugar levels in the past 90 days.

Test Process: The analysis takes place in a certified laboratory and is reviewed by our medical team.

Ik ben erg positief over het gebruik van de Homed-IQ test! Hij was supergemakkelijk te bestellen, werd erg snel bezorgd en het daadwerkelijke testproces is prima te doen. Voor mij een absolute uitkomst. Ik denk dat iedereen toegang moet hebben tot testen zoals de antistoffentest, want dit geeft veel informatie. Homed-IQ maakt dat mogelijk!

De algehele ervaring was uitstekend. Maar de verwerkingstijd was iets te lang, maar dit kwam waarschijnlijk omdat ik pas laat op vrijdagavond had besteld. De rest van het proces is heel goed verlopen.

What is a Diabetes Test?
A Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test measures the amount of blood sugar (glucose) attached to hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the part of your red blood cell that carries oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. An HbA1c test shows the average amount of glucose attached to hemoglobin over the past three months. It’s an average of three months because that is the average livespann of a red blood cell. If your HbA1c levels are high, it could be asign of diabetes, a chronic condition that can cause serious health issues, including heart disease, kidney problems and nerve damage

What is this test used for?
An HbA1c test can be used to check for diabetes or pre-diabetes in adults. Pre-diabetes means that your blood sugar levels shows that you are at risk of getting diabetes. If you already have diabetes, an HbA1c test can help monitor your glucose levels and see how well you are managing your diabetes.

Common symptoms of (pre-) diabetes are:

  • You are extremely thirsty
  • Frequent peeing
  • Blurry sight
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Leg cramps (restless legs)

What do the results of this test mean?
HbA1c is a measure of the amount of glucose in your blood and gives an indication of your sugar level in the past 90 days. The test result is given in percentages. The higher the percentage, the higher your blood sugar.

  • An HbA1c value of less than 5.7% means that your values show no deviation.
  • In many cases, an HbA1c of between 5.7% and 6.4% means that you have pre-diabetes. This is the preliminary stage of type 2 diabetes.
  • In many cases, an HbA1c above 6.5% means that you have diabetes.

In case you have diabetes your HbA1c should be tested at least every 3 to 6 months. It might be done more often if your blood glucose levels are changing quickly.
