Screening for Prediabetes: Your Roadmap to Health

At our Direct Primary Care clinic, we prioritize early detection and prevention. Screening for prediabetes involves simple yet effective tests that provide valuable insights into your metabolic health. Here’s what you need to know:

Fasting Glucose Test: This test measures your blood sugar levels after a period of fasting. Prediabetes is indicated by a glucose level between 100-125 mg/dL, while diabetes is diagnosed at 126 mg/dL or higher.

Hemoglobin A1C Test: Unlike the fasting glucose test, the A1C test offers a broader view of your blood sugar control over the past three months. A result between 5.7 percent to 6.4 percent suggests prediabetes, while 6.5 percent or higher indicates diabetes.

Empower Yourself with Knowledge

Understanding your prediabetes status is the first step towards taking control of your health journey. Armed with this knowledge, you can make informed decisions and implement positive changes to prevent the progression to diabetes.
