What is a Diabetes Test?

A Diabetes Test can provide you with an indication of the onset of diabetes. It does this by detecting the presence of glucose in a urine sample. The test is easy to take and the results will be displayed in the form of a simple colour change on a test strip. As the Diabetes Test is a home test, you can take the test and receive the results all without needing to leave your home. If you are concerned that you may be at risk of developing diabetes, you may wish to consider a Diabetes Test, which can be used at regular intervals.

Who should consider taking a Diabetes Test?

Those over the age of 40 are advised to take a Diabetes Test, as the condition becomes more prevalent at this age. If you are overweight, have a family history of diabetes or are pregnant, regular diabetes testing is advised.

The results of this test are informational only and should not be used as the basis for any personal medical decisions. We strongly advise that you discuss any abnormal results with your doctor, or if you continue to experience symptoms after receiving a negative result.

How do I take a Diabetes Test?

The Diabetes Test requires you to take a urine sample, which should be collected around two hours after you have consumed a substantial meal. You should collect the sample in a container which is clean and dry. The test itself can be conducted anywhere apart from a bathroom that has become steamed up. To take the test, you will need to remove the test strip from its foil packaging and check it to ensure it will produce valid results. You will need to dip the test area of the strip into the urine sample and make sure it is completely covered. Results will take 90 seconds to appear after you have removed the strip from the sample.

Detailed instructions on the testing process will be included with your Diabetes Test. It is important to read through them carefully before beginning the test.

How are the Diabetes Test results displayed?

You will find a colour chart included with your test. Using this colour chart, you will need to compare the test strip with the colour chart to see what colour the test strip corresponds with. The colour change will take 90 seconds to take place, but you should not wait any longer than three minutes to view the results, as any changes that occur after this time will not be valid.

Any colour change that occurs will correspond with either a normal/negative or an abnormal/positive result. If the result is positive, you should contact your doctor. However, if you receive a negative result and continue to experience symptoms, it is advisable to contact your doctor for further advice.
