Diabetic Health Screening
SIMS Hospital – Chennai
Diabetic health screening typically involves a series of tests to assess the health of an individual with diabetes or to diagnose diabetes in someone who has not yet been diagnosed. One commonly used test is the complete blood count (CBC) with erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).
The CBC is a blood test that measures the number and quality of different types of cells in the blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The ESR test measures the rate at which red blood cells settle to the bottom of a tube in one hour. Both of these tests can provide important information about a person’s overall health and can help to identify any underlying conditions that may be affecting their diabetes management.
