The Diabetes (HbA1c) test measures the biomarker:
- Glycated Haemoglobin (HbA1c)
Our Diabetes home blood test kit checks how well your body has managed blood sugar levels over the last 2 - 3 months by measuring HbA1c, which indicates your risk from diabetes.
Too much sugar in your blood damages blood vessels and can lead to serious problems. The most common cause is Type 2 diabetes, a serious, lifelong condition.
Making positive lifestyle changes can significantly reduce your risk of developing diabetes. Lowering your HbA1c level is the best gauge of risk reduction.

This Diabetes (HbA1c) Test Measures:
HbA1c is a type of haemoglobin that forms naturally in the body, when sugars bind with haemoglobin in the blood.
This process happens slowly so the test indicates your average blood sugar levels over the last 2 to 3 months.
This will illustrate if your blood sugar levels are staying within the optimum range and indicate your risk of developing diabetes.

Diabetes testing is a vital blood test for many people. Too much sugar in your blood damages blood vessels and can lead to serious problems.
The most common cause is Type 2 diabetes, a serious, lifelong condition. Over time high glucose levels in your blood can seriously damage your heart, feet, kidneys and sight.
Crucially, 12.3 million people in the UK are at increased risk of Type 2 diabetes.
"More people than ever have diabetes. More people than ever are at risk of Type 2 diabetes. If nothing changes, more than five million people will have diabetes in the UK by 2025." - Diabetes UK.
The good news is that by making lifestyle changes, such as improving diet and physical exercise, the risk of developing diabetes can be significantly reduced.
Our online lab testing service checks a key biomarker - glycated haemoglobin, also known as HbA1c. This is widely respected as the best indicator of your risk from developing diabetes.
