Had an fast and pleasant experience at this location. I was in and out within 10 minutes and the phlebotomist who drew my blood made the process extremely easy and as pain free as possible. Would definitely recommend this location.

I came in one day without an appoint and waited two hours as a walk-in before I had to leave without being tested. I made an appointment through Priority Lab Testing for the next day, showed up on time, got tested easily and was on my way in 15-20 minutes. Staff is friendly and helpful.

I was able to choose a Quest lab location and schedule an appointment. Check in was easy, and I only needed to provide my name and DOB. They were able to locate my order in their system. They were already aware that my labs were paid for prior to the appointment. I had my labs done on a Wednesday, and I received my results by Saturday. Great experience.

Recent patient review

Once I checked in, I was seen within 10 to 15 minutes. The receptionist also acted as the person who draws blood. She was perfectly nice but not overly so where it felt inauthentic. I was out after about 5 minutes worth of blood drawn, so I'd say the whole experience took about 20-25 minutes. Space was overall clean. It's a very unassuming location just down from Park Avenue, I believe. Blink and you might miss it.

Diabetes Test FAQs

  • Who should get a diabetes test?

    Adults between the ages of 40 and 70 who are overweight or obese should be tested for diabetes every three years, according to the US Preventive Services Task Force. The American Diabetes Association advises yearly diabetes screening for people 45 and older, as well as adults under 45 who have substantial diabetes risk factors. Some of the many risk factors for diabetes include high blood pressure, a family history of diabetes, and being overweight or obese.

  • How do they test for diabetes in Alabama?

    A simple blood test can be used to detect diabetes. To diagnose diabetes, many Alabama clinicians utilize the A1C test or a private fasting plasma glucose (FPG) test. The A1C test determines your blood sugar level over the past two or three months, while the FPG test determines your blood sugar level after an overnight fast. The A1C test results are accessible in minutes, whereas the FPG test results are normally available in a few hours.

  • What is the blood test for diabetes?

    The most often used diabetes tests are the A1C blood test and the fasting plasma glucose (FPG) test. The HbA1C test, hemoglobin A1C test, and glycated hemoglobin test are all variations of the A1C test. This test permits you to eat and drink before the test, but the FPG test requires you to fast for at least eight hours before to the test and only drink sips of water until the test is finished.

  • How much does a diabetes test cost in Alabama?

    Many health insurance policies cover diabetes testing. The easiest way to find out how much diabetes testing will cost you is to call your insurance company directly. Some pharmacies, health fairs, community centers, and large shops that provide drugstore services may conduct free diabetes screenings. If you do not have health insurance, inquire with your doctor or local pharmacy about the cost of diabetes testing.

  • Is a diabetes test covered by my insurance?

    Diabetes testing and diagnosis are usually covered by most health insurance plans. To discover more about your coverage and any costs associated with diabetes testing, contact your health insurance provider directly. If your insurance plan does not cover diabetes testing, inquire about free or low-cost testing options at local pharmacies and drugstores in your area.

  • Where can I get a diabetes test in Alabama?

    Diabetes testing is available from a variety of primary care physicians. However, your doctor may refer you to a diabetes expert known as an endocrinologist in specific cases. Diabetes testing can also be done at pharmacies, outpatient laboratories, health fairs, and community centers. To discover more about where to get an accurate and reliable diabetes test, speak with your healthcare professional.

  • Can I get a same-day appointment for a diabetes test in Alabama?

    Many walk-in clinics and urgent care centers offer same-day diabetes testing. Same-day diabetes testing may be available at pharmacies and retail outlets that sell over-the-counter and prescription pharmaceuticals. To learn more about same-day diabetes testing choices and pricing, contact your healthcare practitioner or local walk-in clinics.

  • How can I book a diabetes test on Solv?

    You can use Solv to find local healthcare providers who can provide diabetes testing in your region. In the search field, type "diabetes test," input your location, and indicate when you'd like to have your appointment. Solv will then offer a list of local providers along with their contact information, allowing you to schedule an appointment right immediately.

  • Can I test myself for diabetes at home?

    Diabetes cannot be diagnosed at home, but you can monitor your blood sugar levels once you've been diagnosed. For persons with diabetes, common blood glucose tests include glucose test strips, glucose meters, and lancet devices. If you suspect you have diabetes and wish to be properly diagnosed, schedule a diabetes test with your healthcare professional.

  • What type of doctor treats diabetes?

    A general physician can typically successfully treat and manage diabetes. Some doctors may recommend you to an endocrinologist, a doctor who specializes in endocrine system illnesses such as thyroid issues, infertility, and diabetes. Inquire directly with your healthcare practitioner about available diabetes services and whether you require a referral to an endocrinologist who specializes in the treatment of this chronic illness.

Alabama Diabetes Test

Prediabetes, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes are all diagnosed through diabetes tests. There are a variety of diabetes tests available, however the A1C and FPG tests are the most prevalent diabetes diagnostic tests.
A small sample of your blood is drawn and examined at the clinic or sent to a laboratory for additional examination in diabetes tests. Depending on the type of test, findings are usually available within minutes or a few hours.

Adults who are in a given age range or who have diabetes risk factors are usually advised to get a routine diabetes screening. Pregnant women are routinely tested for gestational diabetes between weeks 24 and 28 of their pregnancy to avoid problems such as premature birth and hypoglycemia.
Anyone who meets the risk criteria for diabetes should get a diabetes test. A family history of diabetes, being overweight or obese, and having a poor level of physical exercise are all common risk factors.

Fasting is not required for the A1C and random blood sugar tests. To check your blood glucose levels, your healthcare professional will collect a little sample of blood. A1C test results of 5.6 percent or less show normal blood sugar levels, 5.7 percent to 6.4 percent suggest prediabetes, and 6.5 percent or more indicate diabetes. A random blood sugar test result of 200 mg/dL or higher indicates diabetes.

Before your blood is obtained for the FPG and glucose tolerance tests, you must fast overnight. A FPG test result of 99 mg/dL or less shows normal blood sugar levels, a value of 100 to 125 mg/dL indicates prediabetes, and a reading of more than 125 mg/dL implies diabetes.
