Diabetes (1 Biomarker)
Checking your levels of HbA1c is how to confirm if you have (or are at risk of developing) diabetes. Unmanaged or undiagnosed diabetes is one of the leading causes of mortality. For anyone who already knows they have diabetes, regular HbA1c checks are essential to monitoring progress.
Inflammation (1 Biomarker)
Inflammation is a process by which your body's white blood cells protect you from infection by external bacteria and viruses. Checking for inflammation can help diagnose a wide range of conditions. High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hs-CRP) is a test that measures the lower levels of CRP. CRP is a protein that increases in the blood during inflammation. hs-CRP tests are used to predict the risk of heart conditions such as a heart attack.
