- Are You At Risk for Developing Diabetes?
When it comes to diabetes, knowledge is power. The sooner you understand your risk level, the sooner we can help you get on track to manage your condition and even prevent a diagnosis completely. At AdventHealth Kissimmee, we’ve helped many people with pre-diabetes catch and control their condition before it becomes type 2 diabetes. We’re prepared to do the same for you. Let us help you assess your diabetes risk with a range of tests, including:
- A1C – A common blood test for diagnosing type 1 and type 2 diabetes
- Autoimmunity checks– This test checks how your immune system is functioning
- C peptide screenings – This test helps us predict type 1 diabetes
- Casual plasma glucose test – This is a random screening for blood sugar levels
- Fasting plasma glucose test – Before undergoing this test, you must refrain from eating or drinking for eight hours
- Oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) – You will drink a glucose solution, and then the glucose levels in your blood will be tested
From there, we’ll provide you with an individualized treatment plan, educational resources, and the support you need to take control and get back to embracing life to its fullest.
