Ths NGSP-certified test allows you to track your long-term and current blood glucose levels. It can detect pre-diabetes and diabetes and monitor how well you are managing your blood sugars. HbA1c is considered the most important measure of your medium-term diet.
The package includes the test meter, fingerprick lancets and two 12-packs of HbA1c test strips. Results are available in 5 minutes. Test strips for "normal" blood sugar tests are available separately.
The HbA1c test measures the proportion of your haemoglobin that has sugar attached. As haemoglobin stays in circulation for about 3 months, the test is equivalent to doing thousands of the "normal" blood sugar tests over that period. In other words, it won't be distorted by what you ate yesterday or whether you had breakfast!
Nutricentric Healthcare has been trialling this new test since the start of the year. It does exactly what it says on the tin. But don't just rely on my judgement. This test is certified by NGSP, the international accreditation body which decides if a test is suitable for diagnosis of pre-diabetes or diabetes.
THis bundle contains the meter - which is chargeable by a normal smartphone charging cable - along with 2 packs of 12 testing strips ands the required fingerpricking single-use lancets and alcohol wipes. Contact us for follow-on purchases of test strips.
