Blood Testing in Plano
NO DOCTOR’S VISIT IS REQUIRED TO ORDER OUR TESTS, SAVING YOU TIME, MONEY AND HASSLE.
Diabetes occurs when the body is unable to utilize insulin or produce it. Typically, most people suffer from diabetes dues to hereditary and environmental conditions. Poor diets, inactive lifestyle and excessive weight gain contributes to the development of diabetes. Family members are susceptible to getting diabetes as well. Nearly 18 million Americans are affected by this lifelong illness. More than one quarter of this number have not been diagnosed with diabetes. This means they are living with a condition without knowledge of its existence in their body.
This does not have to be you. Health Testing Centers in Plano, Texas provides early detection and routine monitoring of your blood glucose levels, which is closely associated with diabetes. Our diabetes blood tests provide critical analysis of your glucose levels. Knowing this can help you develop a plan to either manage or avoid getting this disease.
The symptoms of diabetes may vary, depending on the stage of its development. For most people, common symptoms include:
• Cuts that are slow to heal
• Blurred vision
• Excessive thirst and urination
• Hands or feet that have numbness or tingling
• Unexplained rapid weight loss
Experiencing one or more of these symptoms is a reason to have your blood tested. Our testing facilities in Plano are open to provide you with the answers you need to live a healthy, vibrant life. It is recommended that anyone who suspects they have diabetes get tested in several different areas. One important area is the hemoglobin A1C blood test, which measures the average rate of your glucose level over a three month period.
This test will determine if your blood glucose remained at the target range, or if it was too low or too high. When the glucose level is chronically high, long-term damage to certain organs, nerves and blood vessels may occur.
BLOOD TESTS INCLUDE A DOCTOR’S ORDER AND HEALTH CONSULTATION WITH ONE OF OUR EXPERIENCED NURSES.
The Benefits of Blood Testing
Regular blood screening is an important part of preventing degenerative problems such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and liver or kidney problems. It can also spot problems related to nutrition, such as electrolyte, vitamin and mineral levels, as well as problems related to hormonal imbalances. Patients may not be able to rely on your doctor for all the testing they require, however.
Doctors routinely order basic tests, such as blood cholesterol or fasting blood sugar, but may not bother with many other tests, such as thyroid hormone or basic nutrition screening. This means that many people with subtle internal imbalances can end up suffering from them for years. The symptoms of these imbalances are highly variable and can easily be mistaken for a cold, a mental problem or just feeling tired, so many patients never realize that they have a problem.
One option for patients is to request an annual blood screening covering all the major tests. This is especially helpful for older patients, since changes in the body can have an enormous effect on overall health and quality of life. Many doctors who won’t suggest a screening themselves are willing to perform one when asked. A good insurance policy that offers preventive coverage should pay at least part of the cost of the screening.
Another option is to have the screenings performed without a doctor’s request. In this case, the patient may need to cover the cost of the tests out of pocket, since insurance companies are less likely to provide this kind of screening. The screening itself may cost less, however, and the patient retains complete control over which tests are performed.
Patients who live in large cities, such as Plano, TX, often have access to independent testing center. Those who live in smaller communities may need to travel to the nearest lab, but many testing centers work with a wide range of labs to provide services all over the United States, making it simple to get necessary screenings without too much inconvenience.
