The Diabetes Home Blood Test is a simple, at-home blood test that can measure your blood sugar levels. If the test indicates that you have high blood sugar levels, your doctor can carry out further testing to confirm diabetes and then determine the type of diabetes through factors such as weight, age at diagnosis, family history and how quickly symptoms came on. This test is recommended for those with a body mass index exceeding 25, those over the age of 35, women at risk of gestational diabetes, anyone who has been diagnosed with pre-diabetes and anyone who has been diagnosed with HIV.

Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disease which is becoming increasingly common across all ages. Up to one third of adults in the UK have prediabetes and are at risk of developing diabetes. It is caused by the interplay between lifestyle factors and our genes. Lack of exercise, making unhealthy diet choices and being overweight all increase the likelihood of developing diabetes. It is important to identify diabetes early; if you have raised blood glucose and are at the stage described as prediabetic, then you can still bring blood glucose levels back down by making lifestyle changes. Once diabetes is diagnosed it is vitally important to manage your blood glucose levels carefully to avoid many of the devastating side-effects of the disease which can damage nerves, blood vessels, kidneys and eyes. Diabetes is a known risk factor for cardiovascular disease as well as some cancers and is a major cause of decreased life-expectancy.
