Understanding Sugar Risk Package in Nagpur


What is Sugar Risk Package in Nagpur?

A Sugar Risk Package is used for screening diabetes, and to assess the risk of developing diabetes or treatment response in an individual. This package offers specific tests, HOMA (Homeostatic model assessment) to assess a person’s insulin resistance and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) test to know the average blood sugar levels for the past few months. It is recommended in people with risk factors such as obesity, heart disease, or a family history of diabetes. This test can be done if a person experiences common diabetic symptoms like frequent urination, increased thirst or hunger, weakness, weight changes, poor healing ability, tingling or numbness in the hand and legs. Lifestyle changes like eating a well-balanced diet and regular exercise may help in maintaining optimal blood sugar levels.

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.

HOMA IR; Glucose Resistance Index

HOMA IR; Insulin Resistance Index

The HOMA IR; Insulin Resistance Index is a blood test used to assess an individual's insulin resistance, a fundamental aspect of metabolic health crucial for regulating blood sugar levels. Insulin resistance occurs when the body's cells become less responsive to the hormone insulin leading to impaired glucose uptake. The test is based on the principle that the body's glucose and insulin levels are closely related and that when the body is functioning normally, glucose and insulin levels should be in balance. Through a mathematical model utilizing fasting insulin and glucose levels, HOMA IR provides a quantitative assessment of insulin sensitivity. This index helps doctors gauge how effectively the body processes glucose in response to insulin, offering insights into the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and other metabolic disorders.

Moreover, the HOMA IR; Insulin Resistance Index test helps in personalized health management. By identifying individuals with insulin resistance early on, doctors can implement targeted strategies , such as lifestyle modifications and medication therapy to improve insulin sensitivity and  prevent complications. However, in individuals taking exogenous insulin( insulin injections) HOMA IR cannot be used to assess pancreatic beta cell function accurately. For such individuals, the HOMA IR-C peptide model is recommended. 

Additionally, monitoring changes in HOMA-IR levels over time allows for the assessment of treatment efficacy and the refinement of personalized treatment plans. Overall, the HOMA IR; Insulin Resistance Index test empowers individuals and doctors to proactively address metabolic health concerns, paving the way for improved overall well-being and reduced risk of chronic diseases.
