To help spread awareness of Diabetes we are dedicating our tests of the month for November to Diabetic testing.
More than 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, up from the previous estimate of 26 million in 2010, according to a report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One in four people with diabetes don't even know they have it.
Another 86 million adults - more than one in three U.S. adults - have prediabetes, where their blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes.
People with diabetes are at increased risk of serious health complications including vision loss, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, amputation of toes, feet or legs and premature death.
Have you checked your blood sugar levels lately? Directlabs is offering our Hemoglobin A1C for just $29 during Diabetes Awareness Month. The A1C test is a common blood test used to diagnose type 1 and type 2 diabetes and then to gauge how well you're managing your diabetes.
We also have the Comprehensive Metabolic Panel which includes a fasting Glucose level, along with the Hemoglobin A1C, paneled as our Diabetes Package for $39.
The regular price for this package is $72! That is almost 50% in savings!
