Prediabetes puts patients at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The Healthyr Prediabetes Screening makes it easy to check the different biomarkers that indicate if you are at risk of Type II Diabetes. This screening takes a look at your average blood sugar levels over the past 3 months, so you can see how well controlled your blood sugar has been.

Regular HbA1c testing can also help you see how choices you make affect your blood sugar levels - especially if you're diabetic or prediabetic. If you're looking for a way to better monitor your blood sugar, the Healthyr Diabetes Health Screening is the perfect solution. Order yours today.

With the purchase of a Healthyr Prediabetes Health Test, you will get complimentary access to Blossom —a self-guided program to help you manage your diabetes and overall health. If you'd like to read more about the biomarkers we're testing for and why we test for them, scroll down to our biomarkers section to learn more! We recommend fasting at least 8 hours before taking any at-home test.

Testing Biomarkers

Healthyr Prediabetes Health Test

Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c)

Definition:

Screening for hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) measures the amount of blood sugar (glucose) attached to hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the part of your red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body.

How does this effect me?

Diabetes is a chronic disease in which your blood sugar levels are too high. Over time, diabetes can cause serious health problems, including heart disease, kidney disease, and nerve damage.

HbA1c is a biomarker that indicates your average glucose level over the past three months. Elevated HbA1C may be an indicator pre-diabetes or diabetes.

Glucose

What is it?

Blood sugar, or glucose, is the main sugar found in your blood. It comes from the food you eat, and is your body's main source of energy. Your blood carries glucose to all of your body's cells to use for energy.

How does it affect me?

"Diabetes is a chronic disease in which your blood sugar levels are too high. Over time, diabetes can cause serious health problems, including heart disease, kidney disease, and nerve damage.

A Glucose test indicates how much sugar is in your blood. Glucose levels may indicate either hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) or hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), and can help identify people suffering from diabetes."

Insulin

What is it?

Insulin is a hormone that helps move blood sugar, known as glucose, from your bloodstream into your cells. Glucose comes from the foods you eat and drink. It is your body's main source of energy. Insulin plays a key role in keeping glucose at the right levels. If glucose levels are too high or too low, it can cause serious health problems.

How does it affect me?

"Diabetes is a chronic disease in which your blood sugar levels are too high. Over time, diabetes can cause serious health problems, including heart disease, kidney disease, and nerve damage.

Insulin helps regulate the amount of sugar in your blood.

If you have high blood sugar, elevated insulin may mean your body has developed a resistance to insulin. Insulin resistance makes it difficult for your body to properly regulate blood sugar and puts you at risk of developing Type II diabetes.

If you have high blood sugar and low insulin, then your body may not be able to produce enough insulin to properly regulate blood sugar and you may be at risk of having Type I diabetes.

If you have low blood sugar, elevated insulin may cause hypoglycemia. "

Vitamin B-12 (Cobalamin)

What is it?

Vitamin B-12 (cobalamin) plays an essential role in red blood cell formation, cell metabolism, nerve function and the production of DNA, the molecules inside cells that carry genetic information.

How does it affect me?

Metformin is a common and effective treatment for diabetes and pre-diabetes, but may lower your B12 levels. Measuring B12 can help a care provider determine if metformin is an appropriate treatment option for you or if you could benefit from B12 supplements.

High-Sensitivity C-reactive Protein (hsCRP)

What is it?

High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) is a marker of inflammation that predicts incident myocardial infarction, stroke, peripheral arterial disease, and sudden cardiac death among healthy individuals with no history of cardiovascular disease, and recurrent events and death in patients with acute or stable coronary syndromes.

How does this affect me?

"Diabetes is a chronic disease in which your blood sugar levels are too high. Over time, diabetes can cause serious health problems, including heart disease, kidney disease, and nerve damage.

Elevated CRP may be caused by injury, infection, or chronic disease such as diabetes and may increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. "

Creatinine

What is it?

Creatinine is a chemical compound left over from energy-producing processes in your muscles. Healthy kidneys filter creatinine out of the blood. Creatinine exits your body as a waste product in urine.

How does it affect me?

Creatinine is byproduct of normal muscle function that is cleared from your blood by your kidneys. A creatinine test may be helpful in understanding how diabetes may be affecting your kidney function.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this test work?

Healthyr At-Home Tests all use the latest Dried Blood Spot technology to safely collect a sample at home and then have it processed in one of our CLIA certified labs. This involves using a small lancet, pricking your finger and dripping the blood onto the provided card.

Does pricking my finger hurt?

Pain tolerence is relative to everyone. We use a small gauge lancet for minimal incision. If you're curious how big the incision is or where to prick please refer to our Instructional Video to see. It's on every product page if you scroll through our images. And we promise, this won't hurt any worse then spending hours at the doctor's office.

What if I can’t get enough blood on the card?

Three lancets are provided to give you the best chance of collecting enough blood for the sample. We recommend drinking a glass of water thirty minutes before collecting your sample, washing your hands in warm water, and raising your heart rate just before lancing. A couple ways you can raise your heartrate is by doing 20 jumping jacks or looking at pictures of your ex on Instagram.

What if I follow those tips and still can’t get enough blood?

1) You probably don't need to be worried about being a vampire's first victim and 2) Call us and we're happy to help. Our Customer Service Number is on your test box and here at 833-416-6816. If you have trouble during the collection process, please reach out to us and we can provide a new test kit. We are also happy to walk you through the test while you take it.

What happens if my sample gets lost in the mail?

Regrattably, we don’t have any control over the mail, but we will keep track of your sample and notify you if it appears lost. If you need us to find your tracking information reach out and we're happy to find it for you!

What would cause my sample to get rejected?

• The most common rejection reasons are not enough or too much blood or smearing.
• Red blood must cross the 1st line. Passing the 3rd line is okay, but the lab actually needs to punch out the serum (whiteish part).
• If you let the strip dry and then go to add more blood, it will not separate correctly. Once a strip gets wet, you must add enough blood before it dries.
• Once you have completed your collection, ensure that the blood is dried completely before putting it in the mailer bag.
"

What happens if my sample gets rejected?

In the event that the lab is unable to process your sample, you will receive notice and a new kit, free of charge.

How do I get my sample to the lab?

Every Healthyr Test comes with a prepaid USPS shipping envelope and a biohazard bag. All you have to do is place your sample and the provided biohazard bag into the prepaid shipping envelope and place it in your mailbox or drop it off at your nearest Post Office.

How long will it take to receive my results?

From the time that the lab receives your sample, it will take approximately 1-3 days to receive your results.
