Who should be tested for diabetes?

In Vietnam, more than 50% of diabetes patients are undiagnosed, and 60-70% are not controlled. This alarming number reflects our subjective psychology, often waiting for worse symptoms to cure. The earlier you are diagnosed with diabetes, the more likely you are to control the disease and enjoy a healthy, optimistic life.

Who should get tested for diabetes?

According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommendations, ADULTS 40 years and older should be screened for diabetes and re-tested every three years when expected results. However, you need to regularly monitor your blood glucose levels if you're associated with these symptoms: 

  • family members with diabetes 

  • overweight 

  • ovarian polycystic

  • cholesterol and tgilterior disaster

  • hypertension

  • gestational diabetes mellitus

How do you know whether or not you have diabetes?

To accurately diagnose whether a person has diabetes or not, a doctor may order one or more tests depending on the patient's condition. The most common is the HbA1c test to determine blood glucose levels within the past three months.

  • HbA1c level > 6.5%: you already have diabetes

  • HbA1c level between 5.7 - 6.4% means you have pre-diabetes

  • An HbA1c level of < 5.7% is a safe level, and you do not have diabetes

In addition, testing for diabetes also includes urinalysis, fasting glucose measurement, or oral glucose tolerance test.

Testing for diabetes is a critical and indispensable test for anyone, whether or not there are signs of diabetes.

You should go for regular health check-ups and tests, especially in high-risk groups, for early detection and timely treatment.
