Point of Care Testing

Routine blood glucose (sugar) measurement

Random blood sugar levels fluctuate depending on the length of time since the person last ate and the type of food eaten. They are used to help diagnose or treat diabetes.

Lipids – total Cholesterol HDL, LDL & Tryglycerides

Cholesterol is a waxy fat like substance made in the liver and found in all cells of the body. It is hugely important in many key physiological processes around the body.

HbA1c

This reflects the average plasma glucose (blood sugar) over the previous 8-12 weeks. HbA1c stands for Haemoglobin A1c or glycated haemoglobin.

Insulin

This test measures the amount of insulin in your blood. Insulin is a hormone that helps move glucose (blood sugar), from your bloodstream into your cells.

What happens during these tests?

A finger is pricked using a sterile lancet, and a small sample of blood taken either directly onto the test strip or into a pipette, depending on the amount of blood required.
