Understanding Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile in Ludhiana


What is Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile in Ludhiana?

A Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile test offers a comprehensive assessment of your blood sugar and lipid levels at an affordable price in Ludhiana with Tata 1mg Labs. This package includes a total of 10 tests and is designed to evaluate your risk for diabetes and heart disease, two of the most common health concerns worldwide. High blood sugar can lead to lipid abnormalities and vice versa. This package checks for both conditions simultaneously, enabling healthcare providers to identify and address these interconnected issues early, potentially preventing complications.

This package may be done as a part of routine health checkups to measure blood glucose and lipid levels or if you have symptoms of altered blood glucose levels, such as weight gain or loss, blurred vision, a frequent urge to urinate, or confusion. This package is also recommended for individuals with risk factors such as a family history of diabetes or heart diseases, obesity, high blood pressure (hypertension), sedentary lifestyles, and an unhealthy diet.

It is recommended to fast overnight (8–12 hours) before the test. Only water is allowed during the fasting period.

What does Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile measure?

Contains 10 tests

The Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile includes two tests: diabetes screening [glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) test and glucose-fasting blood test] and lipid profile [total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides]. 

The package comprehensively assesses your metabolic health and cardiovascular risk factors. It helps detect and manage conditions like diabetes, prediabetes, and dyslipidemia (abnormal lipid levels) at an early stage. Additionally, it offers insights into the risk of developing heart disease and provides valuable information for lifestyle adjustments, medical interventions, and preventive measures to improve overall health.

Diabetes Screening (HbA1C & Fasting Sugar)

A Diabetes Screening (HbA1C & Fasting Sugar) test includes a glycosylated hemoglobin test and a glucose-fasting blood test. The glycosylated hemoglobin test measures the percentage of glycosylated hemoglobin in the blood, while a glucose-fasting blood test measures the glucose level during fasting. Glucose is the main form of sugar utilized by the body to release energy; it is absorbed by the intestine and distributed to all organs through blood. These tests help your doctor to monitor your blood sugar levels and manage your diabetes well.

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.

Answers to Patient Concerns & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile in Ludhiana


Frequently Asked Questions about Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile in Ludhiana

Q. Why is a Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile package important?

A Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile package is important because it helps assess a person's risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. It also monitors blood sugar and lipid levels over time in people diagnosed with diabetes and heart disease.

Q. What tests are included in a Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile package?

A Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile package includes 2 tests for diabetes screening, namely glycosylated hemoglobin test and glucose-fasting blood test, and 5 tests for lipid profiling, including total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides.

Q. What is a glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) test?

The glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) test is a blood test that helps diagnose diabetes mellitus and monitors glucose control in diabetic patients. This test may also be used to screen for previously undiagnosed diabetes.

Q. What is the difference between fasting blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) tests?

A fasting blood glucose test measures the blood sugar levels in an individual in the fasting state. At the same time, glycosylated hemoglobin is an individual's average blood sugar level for at least 2-3 months.

Q. What do high glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and glucose-fasting levels indicate?

High levels of glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and fasting blood glucose are indicators of impaired glucose metabolism and can suggest the presence of diabetes or prediabetes. These two tests provide different but complementary information about your blood sugar levels over time.

Q. Is there any special preparation required for a Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile package?

Overnight fasting is recommended before undertaking a Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile package; do not eat or drink anything except water for 8-12 hours before the test. It is also important to inform your doctor about any medications you are taking, as some of them can affect your blood sugar and lipid levels and may need to be adjusted or temporarily discontinued before the test.

Q. What are the risks associated with a Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile package?

The risks associated with a Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile package are generally minimal. However, some people may experience mild pain or discomfort at the site from where the blood sample is taken, which is usually self-limiting.

Q. What is prediabetes?

Prediabetes is when an individual's blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.

Q. What is the difference between “bad cholesterol” and “good cholesterol”?

“Bad cholesterol” carries cholesterol that can stick to the arterial walls and form plaque. On the other hand, “good cholesterol” takes the cholesterol away from the blood and returns it to the liver for processing.

Q. What are the ways to maintain healthy lipid levels?

You must consult your doctor for elevated lipid levels. However, you can maintain healthy lipid levels by making a few changes in your lifestyle, such as eating heart-healthy food, managing your body weight by exercising regularly, and avoiding alcohol and smoking.

Q. How can I maintain healthy blood sugar levels?

To maintain a healthy blood sugar level, track your blood sugar levels regularly, choose meals that are low in calories, limit your alcohol consumption, manage your body weight, and exercise regularly.

Q. What is the best time to take a Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile package?

Tests in a Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile package require fasting for at least 8 hours. Therefore, it's typically done in the morning after an overnight fast.

Q. What is the sample collection procedure for a Diabetes Screening and Lipid Profile package?

A phlebotomist will take a blood sample from a vein in your arm using a small sterile needle. After the needle is inserted, a small amount of blood will be collected into a test tube or vial. The test tube containing blood samples will be sent to the laboratory.
