About Diabetes mini check

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition characterised by high blood sugar. Sugar levels are regulated by insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas. Insulin production and your body’s ability to use it is reduced in type 1 and type 2 diabetes, respectively. Glucose is the main sugar circulating in the blood which is broken down from the foods you eat.

Glucose is a short-term marker of blood sugar levels given it fluctuates hugely throughout a single day. Hyperglycaemia occurs when blood sugar levels are too high, and hypoglycaemia occurs when blood sugar levels are too low. Hyperglycaemia is particularly common in people with diabetes as their body’s either do not produce sufficient insulin or are insulin resistant.

Why take the test?

This test measures the level of glucose in the blood and can be used to help diagnose diabetes, monitor a patient already diagnosed with diabetes or monitor hyperglycaemia or hypoglycaemia.
