A revolutionary test for the diabetic, based on urine and 'self-collectable' dry-blood-spots. Gives a comprehensive, but simple-to-understand report on your diabetic metabolic profile. Identify if your anti diabetic drugs (OHA) are having harmful effects on you - like Lactic Acidosis, Vitamin B12 deficiency etc.
Can identify drug induced Liver dysfunction and therefore help “personalize” the medication which does not harm your liver. This include Insulin Sensitivity and Glucose Homeostasis, Prediction of visceral adiposity and hence the insulin resistance at an early stage, Early indication of impending ketoacidosis, Diabetes induced nutritional deficiencies, Monitoring of key metabolic parameters which indicate the status of heart, kidney, liver and neuropathy. The report also consists of recommendations on managing your diabetes well.
Diabetes implies uncontrolled insulin which leads to slow deterioration of the critical organs like the kidneys, liver, brain and more. Given the day-to-day schedules, it is frequent to forget monitoring the glucose levels. And even if monitored, there is no way available to simultaneously monitor its impact on your vital organs. A poorly managed diabetes may progressively lead to several fatal conditions, mostly realized at advance stages.
There are early “indicators” found in your urine and/or blood samples called as “metabolites”, which hold clue to several unanswered questions about the status of your diabetes related complications. The assessment provides a unique insight into an individual's cellular energy status, neuro metabolism, nutrient impacts and deficiencies.
Diabetic Neuropathy - Diabetic neuropathy affects all peripheral nerves and hence can affect organs and systems throughout the body. Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy overlaps with general symptoms like slowing of thinking or dizziness. You will not know about it, until it leads to severe complications like Dysesthesia, Speech impairment, Orthostatic Hypotension and similar.
Diabetic Cardiopathy - Elevated blood sugar levels slowly cause damage to blood vessels causing impact on your heart tissue increasing the risk of heart-disease and stroke.
Diabetic Nephropathy - Diabetic nephropathy is damage to kidneys caused by diabetes. The kidneys have many tiny blood vessels that filter waste from blood. High blood sugar from diabetes can destroy these blood vessels. Over time, the kidney isn't able to function well and eventually it may even fail.
Diabetic Ketoacidosis - Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) is a dangerous complication of diabetes resultant from a shortage of insulin which leads the body to burning fatty acids and producing acidic ketone bodies that cause severe complications. Symptoms may be, frequent urination/ thirst, fatigue, nausea, muscular stiffness/ aching, breath odor. Diabetic ketoacidosis is an emergency condition and the best approach is to not let the body reach this condition than to act after the situation arises.
