Dallas, TX (Vocus) January 16, 2010 -- ANY LAB TEST NOW North Dallas locations have lowered the price of their diabetes maintenance panel to only $89 for the month of January in order to provide more affordable healthcare to local Dallas residents. ANY LAB TEST NOW North Dallas owner Greg Johnson states, With health insurance being so expensive, we decided it was necessary to lower the price to give our customers an affordable option." Left undetected, diabetes can be a silent killer. It is the leading cause of kidney failure and blindness and can increase your chances of having a heart attack, stroke or infection. Symptoms of diabetes onset include severe increased thirst, frequent urination, unexplained weight loss, increased hunger, and tingling of your hands or feet.
Regular testing of blood sugar can help reduce the risk of long-term complications from diabetes. Based on studies of people with type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes, maintaining near normal blood sugar and HbA1c levels significantly reduces the risks of complications from diabetes.
Individuals with diabetes cannot properly convert sugar into energy -- a chemical reaction necessary within every person in order to live. It is estimated that 20 million Americans have diabetes, and 6 million of these are completely unaware they are diabetic. Alarmingly, the American Diabetes Association estimates that over 40 million Americans between the ages of 40 and 74 have pre-diabetes and are at high risk for developing diabetes.
The ANY LAB TEST NOW Diabetes Maintenance Panel gives the opportunity to prevent the onset or keep the disease from advancing. This panel includes:
Complete Blood Count -- tests for blood disorders such as infection, leukemia, anemia, and blood clotting.
Fasting Glucose -- This test is used to detect both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, to help diagnose diabetes, and to monitor glucose levels in persons with diabetes.
Hemoglobin A1c -- A measure of glucose (sugar) to detect pre-diabetes, diagnose diabetes or check to see if diabetes is under control.
Diabetic Urinalysis -- This test determines if albumin, a protein normally found in the blood and filtered by kidneys, is present in your urine. If present, its possible the kidneys are not working properly.
