Below are the individual tests that are included in Ultimate Health Check that will show on your Prevé report in the MyPreve area. 

Diabetes Check

  • null

    Hemoglobin-A1C (%)

    Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) test measures the amount of blood sugar (glucose) attached to hemoglobin, which is the part of your red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. HbA1c test indicates the average amount of glucose attached to hemoglobin within the past three months. High HbA1c levels are related to prediabetes or diabetes, which may lead to more serious conditions such as cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, vision loss, or cognitive impairment.

  • null

    Microalbumin (creatinine adjusted)

    Urine microalbumin test is used to detect very small levels of a blood protein (albumin) in your urine, which indicates the early signs of both heart disease and kidney damage. Healthy kidneys retain proteins such as albumin while damaged kidney can cause proteins to leak through and exit your body in your urine. Albumin is one of the first proteins to leak when kidneys become damaged. Increased albumin in urine is a strong and independent indicator of increased cardiovascular and kidney disease risk.

  • null

    Adiponectin

    Adiponectin is a protein hormone produced and secreted by adipose tissues. Your body uses adiponectin to regulate insulin sensitivity and energy metabolism. Low levels of adiponectin mean your body isn’t creating enough of the hormone to regulate insulin. Thus, adiponectin serves as the marker for diabetes and heart health. People with the lowest levels of adiponectin are up to a 9-fold greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Low adiponectin levels are also associated with a 2-fold increase in the prevalence of coronary artery disease.

  • null

    Glucose

    Glucose is needed by your body to provide energy to carry out your normal activities. This is measured after fasting to determine if your body is regulating glucose well. High levels after fasting indicate pre-diabetes or diabetes. It should be noted that a non-fasting glucose measurement does not represent your baseline levels of glucose, therefore non-fasting glucose measurements should not be considered as a valid measurement.

  • null

    Insulin

    Insulin is a hormone your body produces to help move glucose into your cells for energy.  Low levels of insulin could indicate pre-diabetes, diabetes or metabolic syndrome.  High levels could indicate hyperglycemia.
