ARCpoint Labs Blood Glucose Test measures an individual’s HbA1c, or glycated hemoglobin, levels. Measuring HbA1c gives an overall picture of what one’s average blood sugar levels have been over the last 2-3 months. This test is most commonly used for people with diabetes because of the higher the HbA1c level, the greater the risk of developing diabetes-related complications.

After you place your order, you will receive your collection kit within 3 to 5 business days.

Once your sample is received at the lab, your results will generally be available within 4-7 business days.

Who’s It For

The Blood Glucose test is for anyone who is at risk of any type of diabetes or has any of the common symptoms listed below.

You could be at risk of diabetes if the following apply to you:

  • You are obese or overweight.
  • You have an impaired glucose tolerance. Prediabetes is a milder form of this condition. If you have pre-diabetes, there is a strong possibility that you will develop type 2 diabetes.

  • Gestational diabetes. If you had gestational diabetes while you were pregnant, your chances of developing type 2 diabetes later in life are increased.
  • If you don’t exercise enough.
  • Family history. You have a parent or sibling who has diabetes.
  • Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have a higher risk.
  • If you’re over 45 and overweight or if you have symptoms of diabetes, you should take this test.

  • Unusual thirst and/or dry mouth

  • The best site for a finger puncture is just off the right or left side of the finger pad of the ring or pinkie finger. The tip of the finger should be avoided.
  • Make sure hands (fingers) are warm. Hold under running warm water for 30 seconds if necessary to increase circulation.
  • Be sure to place your finger on a firm surface, like a countertop or kitchen counter, to ensure that you get the proper depth when activating the safety lancet.
  • After lancing collection area, use “milking” motion to draw blood towards puncture area.
  • Be sure to get 5 good drops of blood into the blood collection device.
