This home test checks your levels of HbA1c. This biomarker is used to
confirm whether you have (or are at risk of developing) diabetes. It is
a potentially life-saving test and it is quite common for people to have
diabetes and not know about it. Unmanaged or undiagnosed diabetes is
one of the leading causes of mortality. For anyone who already knows
they have diabetes, regular HbA1c checks are essential to monitor

Getting tested for prediabetes and diabetes through the NHS can add lengthy delays to diagnosis. Our Diabetes Home Self Test Kit determines if you are prediabetic or diabetic, and it is quick and easy to get started.
Our HbA1c level Test Kit is accurate within plus/minus 0.5 percentage points, giving you a definitive diagnosis, and you can do it at home yourself. All you do is take samples and mail them to our partner laboratory to test them.
The test results can help you understand your risk of Type 2 Diabetes, and it can also tell you if you have diabetes at the time of the test.
You will receive a medical-grade testing kit in each pack, complete with a small capillary device that will take a drop of blood from your finger.
The glucose or blood sugar level test (HbA1c) will help you understand your blood sugar levels. It is the same test used in clinical environments to diagnose diabetes, and there is no risk involved in the test – it is painless and fast.
Our service is confidential and fast. If you want to test for prediabetes and diabetes, there is no better way to go about it.

Symptoms of Diabetes
Diabetes is an illness with many symptoms, but it typically goes undiagnosed because it disguises itself among typical conditions like frequent urination, fatigue, itchy skin and feeling hungry, even after eating.
Here’s a rundown of the most common symptoms:
- Urinating more than ten times a day
- Drinking unusual amounts of water
- Feeling hungry, even after eating a lot
- Fatigue and tiredness
- Dry mouth and tongue
- Dry eyes and blurred vision
- Itchy skin
- Cuts and bruises that are slow to heal
- Weight loss, especially sudden
- Tingling, pain, or numbness in the hands
If you are experiencing these symptoms, then you can get a fast diabetes diagnosis with our HbA1c level Test Kit.
Biomarkers are used to diagnose prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. Haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) indicates chronic glycemia, a marker of Type 2 Diabetes, effectively separating the possibility of random glucose levels.
There are different markers for prediabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. The criteria for Type 2 Diabetes is HbA1c >6.5%, while the criteria for prediabetes is 5.7%. The normal range for a person without diabetes or prediabetes is <5.6%.
If you are diagnosed with prediabetes, the condition is reversible. You can prevent Type 2 diabetes with diet and lifestyle changes.
If you are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, the condition can be controlled with diet and lifestyle changes, although you may require medication. You should consult your GP about any diagnosis to create a health plan.
When to Test
The sample must be collected Monday morning and posted on the same day, so we receive it Tuesday or Wednesday for accurate results.
You should get tested if you suffer from any of the symptoms described above. Most people experience at least three symptoms, the most common being an insatiable thirst, appetite and extreme fatigue.
If you have diabetes in your family, this is also an excellent reason to get tested, especially if you have concerns about your health.
