The HbA1c + Glucose Test is a good place to start if you have concerns about your blood sugar management or think you may have prediabetes.
Each of these biomarkers is an helpful indicator of blood sugar control, looking at current blood glucose levels as well as your average blood glucose level over the past three months. Poorly controlled blood sugar can lead to insulin resistance, prediabetes, and type 2 diabetes, so it is important to test regularly to catch warning signs early.
Healthyr is a proud partner of the American Diabetes Association. A portion of sales from every HbA1c + Glucose Test is donated to supporting their fight against diabetes and prediabetes.
Prediabetes is a condition that affects 1 in 5 people in the US. It is characterized by blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. If left untreated, prediabetes can lead to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
The good news is prediabetes can be reversed through diet and lifestyle changes. But because it rarely shows symptoms, 80% of people who have prediabetes don’t know it. You can only reverse the condition if you know you have it. The HbA1c + Glucose test can help you identify whether you currently have or are at risk for prediabetes.
Diabetes is a chronic health condition in which the body either doesn’t make enough insulin or doesn’t respond to insulin the way it should. Insulin regulates blood glucose and helps get it into the cells to be used for energy. When there isn’t enough insulin, or insulin isn’t responded to, the patient experiences chronically high blood sugar which over time, causes damage to the blood vessels, heart, eyes, kidneys, and nerves.
People with type 1 or type 2 diabetes typically rely on medication such as Metformin and Insulin to control blood sugar levels. However, it is important to test HbA1c and glucose regularly to ensure the condition is being properly managed.

Our tests use an accurate and reliable form of microsampling called Dried Blood Spot Testing.
This form of testing has been used since the 1960s in Neonatal care and for testing in remote locations. You may be familiar with the heel prick performed on newborns during their initial health assessment– this is Dried Blood Spot Testing. We use this same technology and have expanded it to accurately assess a wider range of diagnostic biomarkers to be able to provide reliable health assessment that is more convenient, accessible, and affordable.
Our state-of-the-art lab is CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited. We pride ourselves on our use of validated and reliable testing methods as well as our stringent quality control measures.
