Regular testing for people who are diabetic is vital to determine if their blood sugar levels are performing as they should, and also provide important diagnosis information for people who are experiencing symptoms of diabetes or have a family history of the disease.
Because this testing is so important and people without insurance, or with large co-pays on their insurance, struggle to find affordable testing options is a big problem.
Luckily, we offer a solution providing easy, affordable and convenient diabetes testing for people in Oakland, the Bay Area, and across the nation.
Our company offers medical lab testing at over 2,000 locations across the country and we don’t take insurance for our test costs because they are so affordable. Our diabetes testing starts at just $55.
We’re able to offer these tests because we don’t require our clients to go through a traditional doctor’s office visit (which may not even be possible without insurance) to schedule a test. Instead, our clients simply go online and select the test they need and schedule it directly with the lab.
We partner with over 2,000 labs across the country, some of which are in or around Oakland, to allow for maximum convenience for our clients. Simply select the best location and time for your test and you’re all set.
Our diabetes tests check levels of Hemoglobin A1C and Glucose to show how well your blood sugar has performed over the previous three months. These tests are crucial for diabetics to determine if their condition is worsening, and can help undiagnosed but suspected diabetics know if they, too, have diabetes.
People who typically get tested to determine if they have diabetes are those with a family history of the disease, those who are obese and diagnosed with high cholesterol, have tested abnormally with test strips, or have noticed symptoms like increased thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, increased hunger, among others.
We take the privacy of our clients very seriously, so when your test results are in (typically 1 – 2 business days after blood collection), you will receive an email with instructions on how to log in to your secure online portal to view your test results.
While our diabetes testing only checks two things, hemoglobin A1C and glucose, if you are newly diagnosed or are seeking clarity on whether or not you have diabetes, interpreting the test results might be difficult with assistance from a medical professional.
Since this is the case, we contract with licensed doctors for all of our testing and as soon as the results come in, one of them will give you a call to help you read the results and answer any questions you might have.
We are happy to provide an affordable solution for diabetes testing for people without insurance, and if you need a diabetes test in the Bay Area or anywhere in the country we would encourage you to check out our website for more information on our services.
