I would 100% recommend this company to anyone wanting to check their health status. The process was incredibly easy and done through certified labs. The results are frequently back by the next day.

Due to a in home accident l was there today around noon. Kara Saling, nurse practitioner needs to be on "kids stitch list!" That beautiful caring lady said it may pinch.. l felt barely a prick and absolutely nothing until she finished putting stitches in my browline. Her kind, patient skills and amazing technique is one KIDS would love but we all are privileged to receive her expertise. I have been to this location several times. Always treated with great service and respect.

Glucose Test FAQs

  • How much does a glucose test cost in Louisville?

    The cost of a blood glucose test is determined by a number of factors, including the test's location and type. A glucose test will set you back around $10. Ask your doctor's office when you arrange your appointment if you have any questions about the type of test you'll need or how much it'll cost.

  • Does insurance cover glucose testing in Louisville?

    Many health insurance companies fund glucose testing, but there are certain restrictions. Your insurer may cover a glucose test once or twice a year, for example. Contact your insurance carrier or look up your policy documentation on their website if you have any queries about what your insurance plan covers.

  • What is glucose in a blood test?

    Glucose is a type of sugar found in human and animal blood that acts as one of the body's principal fuel sources. Glucose is obtained from the food you eat, or it can be produced by your body from other sources if necessary. After you eat, glucose is released into your bloodstream and circulated throughout your body. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose get into cells so that it may be used for energy.

  • What is a glucose test?

    A glucose test is a simple blood test that determines how much glucose is present in your body. Too much or too little glucose in the blood might cause medical issues and signal a more serious condition. Hyperglycemia, or high blood glucose levels, can be a sign of diabetes, which is linked to heart disease, stroke, kidney illness, eye problems, skin diseases, sluggish wound healing, and other complications.

  • How long should I fast before a glucose test?

    Before a glucose test, you should fast for at least eight hours. If you eat or drink anything before a glucose test, your blood sugar will be higher, and the result may not be accurate. Before a glucose test, you can drink water but not anything else. It's best to schedule your appointment early in the morning so that you don't go hungry for the rest of the day.

  • How do I read glucose test results?

    The concentration of glucose in the blood is expressed in milligrams per deciliter, or mg/dL, a measuring unit. A fasting glucose test's normal range is 70 to 99 mg/dL. Prediabetes can be discovered when blood sugar levels are between 100 and 125 mg/dL. If your fasting blood glucose level is greater than 125 mg/dL, you may have diabetes.

Louisville Glucose Tests

Diabetes is a life-threatening disease that affects 32 million individuals in the US. Because diabetes doesn't always manifest itself as symptoms, especially in its early stages, it's vital to have your blood glucose levels examined if you're at risk.

Patients aged 45 and over should get their glucose levels checked once a year, according to the American Diabetes Association. If you're under 45 and have a lot of risk factors, you should be checked. Obesity, having a diabetic close family member, and being physically active less than three times a week are all risk factors for diabetes. Having gestational diabetes or prediabetes raises your chances of developing diabetes later in life. African Americans, Latinos, and American Indians, for example, have a higher risk of diabetes than other ethnic groups.

Pregnant women with type 2 diabetes risk factors should be tested for gestational diabetes during the first trimester. Being overweight, over 35, having a history of gestational diabetes, or belonging to an ethnic group with a high diabetes risk are all risk factors. If diabetes is not controlled during pregnancy, it can cause complications such as hypertension, cesarean birth, and even infant mortality.

Prediabetes occurs when blood sugar levels are higher than usual but not high enough to be categorized as diabetes. One out of every three people in the United States has prediabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and many of them are unaware of it. If left untreated, many people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within ten years. Prediabetes, on the other hand, is reversible by dietary and lifestyle changes. Blood sugar control can be achieved by eating a good diet and exercising regularly. Start reducing weight right immediately if you're overweight. Consume plenty of fruits and vegetables while avoiding refined carbohydrates and sweets.
