Diabetes Check Panel with Insulin
- (QUEST DIAGNOSTICS)Description:
This profile measures the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood. Sugar is an important source of energy, especially for the brain. The amount of glucose in your blood is carefully controlled by the endocrine (glandular) system. This system causes sugar to be stored or used for energy, depending on the needs of your body. In addition, the hemoglobin A1c ("A-one-C") test is a blood test used in the care of people who have diabetes. The hemoglobin A1c percentage is a way of looking at your average blood sugar control over the last 2 or 3 months. Finally, this profile includes a complete renal panel to assess kidney function, which is critical in evaluating overall health of diabetics as well as Insulin levels.
A significant deviation from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.Includes: Comprehensive Metabolic Profile ( includes eGFR ):
