What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a metabolic disease that is caused due to excessive amounts of blood glucose in your body. Normally, the pancreas secretes a hormone called insulin that plays a crucial role in breaking down glucose that can be easily absorbed by the cells. For patients with diabetes, insulin production is affected or sensitivity of body cells towards insulin is reduced, which in turn increases the blood glucose levels, which is harmful. High blood sugar levels can also result in different types of medical conditions, including heart valve disease, lung problems, different types of mental disorders, and skin diseases, among many others.
A diabetes blood test is essentially a sugar level test which can help detect early symptoms of diabetes, and can also inform you of the progression of the condition. You should consider taking a diabetes screening in Agra if you notice any pre diabetes symptoms so that treatment can be started at the earliest. In case you have already been diagnosed with high blood sugar, a blood glucose test will help you understand the degree of the condition to take steps to stabilize the same.
What are the types of diabetes?
There are two major types of diabetes:
Type 1 diabetes: Diabetes mellitus type 1 is a condition in which the body is unable to produce insulin as the pancreatic cells producing the hormone are destroyed by your immune cells. This results in high glucose levels and can occur at any age. However, it is predominantly diagnosed at a young age.
Type 2 diabetes: In this condition, the body either resists insulin, or the pancreas does not produce enough of it. This leads to the inability of the body to maintain glucose levels, resulting in high blood sugar levels. This is most prevalent in middle-aged individuals.
A diabetes doctor will help set a course of action for your treatment after the results of your first diabetes blood test. You will also have to take up random blood sugar tests until your glucose levels stabilize and are under control with insulin therapy and blood sugar treatment. You should talk to your diabetologist in Agra about taking regular diabetes screening tests in Agra if you have already been diagnosed.
Blood sugar test procedure
Once the doctor prescribes a blood glucose test, you will have to book an appointment with the nearby clinic or diagnostic center. You can also opt for a blood sugar test at home through the mfine app. Your blood sample will be collected and evaluated for the glucose levels. This test will be done in two stages - fasting (before eating) and postprandial (after a meal) - for a complete analysis of your blood glucose levels. The results of the diabetes screening in Agra will be compared with the standard recommended levels and you will be diagnosed accordingly. Doctors will prescribe corresponding high blood sugar treatment and insulin medication to help manage your glucose levels.
Why should you take a blood sugar test?
Over 30 million people in India suffer from diabetes, with many even succumbing to diabetes-related complications owing to poor management. A large proportion of the people suffering from Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes hail from rural areas, with many of them not even knowing what the disease is. Many people also suffer from signs and symptoms of diabetes which go unchecked until it is too late to prevent the onset of the disease.
Diabetes screening and its management is the need of the hour - right from identifying the early symptoms of diabetes to recommending a list of foods for diabetes according to each individual case. A diabetes screening test includes 2 tests, assessing a person’s glucose level, prompting them to start taking measures to manage it. There are also other risk factors associated with diabetes, like, stroke, heart diseases, kidney problems, skin disease, nervous trouble and diarrhea.
