GetTested's Diabetes Test

Understanding Diabetes and Its Symptoms

Diabetes, a widespread condition, arises from high blood sugar levels, known as hyperglycemia. This often links to reduced insulin production by the pancreas, a hormone vital for regulating blood sugar. There are two main types of diabetes. Type I, or insulin-dependent diabetes, involves an absolute lack of insulin production. Type II, or non-insulin-dependent diabetes, occurs when insulin production is insufficient or the body's cells don't respond adequately to insulin. When blood glucose levels exceed the kidneys' filtering capacity, glucose starts appearing in the urine, making urine testing a useful tool for diabetes monitoring.

Detecting Diabetes at Home

GetTested's Diabetes Test simplifies diabetes monitoring by measuring glucose and ketones in urine. This easy at-home test provides immediate results without needing lab analysis. Users can quickly compare their urine sample with the color chart in the package for an accurate assessment. This test is essential in tracking glucose levels, an early indicator of diabetes.

Ketones and Diabetic Ketoacidosis

In diabetes diagnosis, checking for ketones is crucial. Ketones, produced during the breakdown of fatty acids, accumulate when the body uses fat instead of glucose for energy. This shift occurs in diabetes as glucose fails to enter cells efficiently. Elevated ketone levels can lead to diabetic ketoacidosis, a serious complication where ketones build up in the blood and urine.

Additional Testing Options

For a more comprehensive diabetes assessment, GetTested also offers HbA1C tests, available as both rapid and laboratory tests. These tests measure long-term blood sugar control, providing valuable information for managing diabetes.

Early Detection and Management

Early detection of glucose and ketone levels can help prevent complications like retinopathy, kidney failure, nerve damage, and cardiovascular diseases. With GetTested's Diabetes Test, managing diabetes becomes more straightforward, enabling timely medical intervention and lifestyle adjustments.

By actively monitoring glucose and ketone levels at home, individuals can take proactive steps in their diabetes care, reducing the risk of severe complications and maintaining better overall health.
