  • Diabetes Management Profile (Comprehensive)
  • Item Catalog Number: LC100040

You might be surprised to learn that 29.1 million people in the United States have diabetes -that’s over 9% of our population! Even more startling is the fact that 8.1 million of them are undiagnosed? That means a staggering 27.8% of the US population are unaware they even have diabetes!1          

Those are frightening statistics….and accurately testing for blood sugar is like putting pieces of a puzzle together. Many doctors rely on a HbA1C to determine glycemic control in people with diabetes, but the truth is…no single test is able to capture fasting glucose status, average glucose levels over time AND deadly post meal spikes! That's why the comprehensive diabetes management profile was designed to look at all aspects of glucose control.

  The panel contains the following tests:

  • The Glycemic Triad
    • Fasting glucose – A snapshot of your glucose level in a fasting state
    • HbA1C – your average glucose over the last 2-3 months
    • Glycomark – used to measure your post-meal glucose control. This test reflects your average maximum blood glucose and helps you know how many blood sugar spikes you have had over the last 10 to 14 days.
  • Insulin
    • Insulin is a hormone secreted by your pancreas in response to eating carbohydrates. In people with diabetes, insulin does not work optimally to drive glucose into the cells. As a result the pancreas produces more insulin than normal to help keep your glucose in the normal range.
  • Lipid Panel including:
    • Total Cholesterol
    • HDL
    • LDL (calculated)
    • Triglycerides
    • VLDL (calculated)

People with diabetes are at significant risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and the combination of diabetes and increased lipids accelerates plaque formation in the artery wall.2

Fasting for 8-12 hours is required. Please drink water to make sure you are hydrated and take all medications as prescribed.
