Sample Collection Options for this Glucose Test.
This test has been discontinued as it is unsuitable for post and HbA1C is now universally accepted for diagnosis of diabetes -
Serum glucose levels may be abnormally high (hyperglycemia) or abnormally low (hypoglycemia). Glucose measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of carbohydrate metabolic disorders, including diabetes mellitus & idiopathic hypoglycemia. Please be aware that the sample for this test MUST BE RETURNED TO THE LABORATORY FOR NEXT WORKING DAY delivery.
Glucose is the form of sugar that is transported around the body in blood to provide energy for all bodily functions. A very common blood test, but an essential part of any health screening, high levels are diagnostic of diabetes mellitus, a state in which the body is unable to handle glucose adequately. Low levels can occur in healthy individuals on occasion, but if sustained, a low level of glucose may indicate an underlying problem with how sugar levels are maintained by the body. As we recommend that you fast for your health screening this will be reported as a FASTING blood glucose level.

Utterly patient, kind and helpful, kit arrived next day, as did my results. 5 stars well-deserved.UK
Great service and product. The turn around is brilliant (mostly - there was a glitch during the early part of the Covid pandemic, but that seems to be resolved now). Tests are recognised by the medical profession so I am able to use the results to get the treatment I need without further tests.UK
I had various questions which they answered via email/webchat and the timing of getting a kit, sending it back and getting the results was good.UK
