Understanding Diabetes Package Advanced in New Delhi


What is Diabetes Package Advanced in New Delhi?

A Diabetes Package Advanced screens for diabetes and its complications at an affordable price in New Delhi with Tata 1mg labs. This package is essential for detecting, monitoring, and managing diabetes. It is recommended for people with high-risk factors for diabetes and heart disease, like a family history of these diseases, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, and obesity. This package can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatment measures taken in diabetic patients and to detect kidney and heart-related complications.

A Diabetes Package Advanced offers 29 tests that monitor kidney health, blood sugar, urine, lipid profile, and more. The glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) test gives an overall picture of long-term blood sugar control (generally 2-3 months), whereas the fasting glucose test measures the blood glucose levels after overnight fasting.

HbA1c (Hemoglobin A1c)

An HbA1c (Hemoglobin A1c) test precisely measures the percentage of sugar-coated or glycated hemoglobin in your blood. The test results represent the proportion of hemoglobin in your blood that has been glycated. 

Hemoglobin, a vital protein found in red blood cells, is responsible for transporting oxygen throughout the body. Hemoglobin A is the most abundant form of hemoglobin, and when blood sugar levels increase, a higher proportion of hemoglobin A becomes glycated. As red blood cells have a lifespan of approximately 120 days, the sugar molecules remain attached to the hemoglobin for the duration of the cell's life. Consequently, the HbA1c test offers insight into your average blood sugar levels over the past 8 to 12 weeks.

FBS (Fasting Blood Sugar)

A fasting blood sugar test measures the glucose level in the body under overnight fasting conditions. Glucose serves as the body's energy currency and is broken down through metabolism to produce energy. Hormones and enzymes produced by the liver and pancreas control this process. The hormone insulin, produced by the pancreas, regulates blood glucose levels. When these levels are high, such as after a meal, insulin is secreted to transport glucose into cells for energy production. Elevated glucose levels in the body after fasting may indicate a risk of developing prediabetes or diabetes, which can be of two types- Type 1, caused by little or no insulin production, and Type 2, caused by insulin resistance or decreased insulin production.

Lipid Profile

A Lipid Profile assesses the level of specific fat molecules called lipids in the blood and helps determine the risk of heart ailments. This test determines the amount of different types of lipids, including total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides. Lipids play a pivotal role in the functioning of the body. They are crucial components of the cell membranes and hormones, provide cushioning, and are a storehouse of energy. Any alterations in the lipid levels may lead to potential heart ailments, making their monitoring crucial.

Urine R/M (Urine Routine & Microscopy)

A Urine R/M (Urine Routine & Microscopy) test involves gross, chemical, and microscopic evaluation of the urine sample.

  1. Gross examination: It involves visually inspecting the urine sample for color and appearance. Typically, the urine color ranges from colorless or pale yellow to deep amber, depending on the urine’s concentration. Things such as medications, supplements, and some foods such as beetroot can affect the color of your urine. However, unusual urine color can also be a sign of disease.

    In appearance, the urine sample may be clear or cloudy. A clear appearance is indicative of healthy urine. However, the presence of red blood cells, white blood cells, bacteria, etc., may result in cloudy urine, indicating conditions such as dehydration, UTIs, kidney stones, etc. Some other factors, such as sperm and skin cells, may also result in a cloudy appearance but are harmless.

  2. Chemical examination: It examines the chemical nature of the urine sample using special test strips called dipsticks. These test strips are dipped into the urine sample and change color when they come in contact with specific substances. The degree of color change estimates the amount of the substance present. Some common things detected include protein, urine pH, ketones, glucose, specific gravity, blood, nitrites, and urobilinogen.

  3. Microscopic examination: This involves the analysis of the urine sample under the microscope for casts, crystals, cells, bacteria, and yeast.

A KFT with Electrolytes (Kidney Function Test with Electrolytes) test determines the health of your kidneys. It evaluates parameters such as creatinine, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), uric acid, and electrolytes (sodium, potassium, and chloride).

Microalbumin Creatinine Ratio, Urine

A Microalbumin Creatinine Ratio, Urine test compares albumin and creatinine excretion in your urine. Typically, the body filters out creatinine in the urine steadily. Comparing the ratio of urine albumin with creatinine in the same urine sample helps analyze if the body is excreting albumin at an increased rate. Elevated levels indicate increased urinary excretion of albumin, which can be an early sign of kidney damage that may need medical intervention.

Yes, a Diabetes Package Advanced is commonly used during pregnancy to screen for gestational diabetes, which is a type of diabetes that develops during pregnancy.

Q. What is the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes?

In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas does not make insulin, because the body’s immune system attacks the islet cells in the pancreas that are responsible for making insulin. In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas makes less insulin than used to, and the body becomes resistant to insulin. This means the body has insulin but stops being able to use it.

Q. Is diabetes preventable?
