  • HbA1c measures your average blood glucose (sugar) levels over the past three months. By checking the levels of glycosylated haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) in your blood, you receive an accurate indication and early detection of your risk of developing pre-diabetes and diabetes along with a supporting guidebook to help you make effective lifestyle changes.

    Since 1996, the number of people in the UK with diabetes has risen by 150% (diabetes.org.uk). Obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, and a Western diet can all contribute to developing Type 2 Diabetes. If you’re unsure whether your lifestyle is potentially increasing your risk, you should consider taking a Diabetes test.

    A number of factors can cause high blood glucose levels which subsequently leads to high HbA1c levels. Over a period of time, high glucose levels in your blood can seriously damage your heart, eyes, feet, and your kidneys. These are known as complications of diabetes. By measuring HbA1c levels, we’re able to detect whether you have pre-diabetes, as well as risk of developing diabetes.

    Having diabetes increases your risk of the following:

    • Cardiovascular disease
    • Kidney Disease
    • Eye Disease
    • Amputations
    • Depression
    • Neuropathy (damage to the nerves)
    • Sexual dysfunction
    • Complications in pregnancy
    • Dementia
    • Reduced life expectancy and increased mortality
