Important diabetes tests

  • Hemoglobin A1c blood glucose test (recommended every 3–6 months)1
  • Lipid panel test for total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides (recommended once per year)1
  • Urine test to check kidney health (recommended once per year)1
  • Blood test to check heart health (recommended once per year)2
  • Liver function test (recommended once per year)1

Why get these tests?

Diabetes seldom occurs in isolation. A diabetes diagnosis is often accompanied by related conditions such as cardiovascular disease, kidney problems, foot and lower limb complications, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and hyperglycemia in pregnancy. 

With 45% of people with diabetes undiagnosed,3 or diabetes recognized only when life-threatening complications develop, testing is critical to diagnose and provide appropriate and timely care.
