The Chemcard Glucose Test is a 3 minute test that requires only a single self-collected blood droplet to identify abnormally high fasting plasma glucose (blood sugar) levels in your blood. Abnormal glucose levels are normally a warning sign of diabetes.
Screening or Testing for Abnormal Blood
The Chemcard Glucose Test is a simple, effective screening test which
is used to identify abnormally high fasting plasma glucose (blood sugar)
levels which are often a warning sign of diabetes. Chemcard Glucose is a
3 minute test which requires a single drop of blood obtained from a fingerstick,
requires no instruments, and was shown in clinical trials to be 94 to 99.95
percent accurate in identifying normal and abnormal fasting plasma glucose
levels. Chemcard Glucose requires no instruments and is FDA
510(k) approved for both home use and
in doctor's offices. Chemcard Glucose is not intended for use by persons
who are known to be diabetic, or who are pregnant.
Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly
use insulin, a hormone which is needed to convert sugar, starches and other
foods into the energy needed for daily life. Diabetes is one of the most
common and costly health problems in the US, with approximately 6 percent
of the US population having the disease. The American Diabetes Association
(ADA) estimates there are more than 5.4 million people in the US alone,
who are not aware they have diabetes. Many of these people only become aware
they have the disease when they develop life threatening complications,
such as blindness, kidney disease, heart disease, stroke nerve disease or
amputation. As a result, the ADA, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC),
and the National Institute of Diabetes and Kidney Diseases now recommend
screening as a necessary first step in an effort to detect diabetes at an
earlier stage, before the onset of serious complications.
The ADA recommends screening individuals having one or more
of the following diabetes risk factors, every three years.
Major Risk Factors for Diabetes
Family history of diabetes: Parents or siblings
Obesity: 20 percent or more overweight.
Race/ethnicity: African American, Hispanic, Native
American, Pacific Islander.
Age: All individuals 45 years and older.
Individuals with hypertension (high blood pressure):
140/90 mmHg or higher.
Individuals identified with impaired fasting
glucose level or impaired glucose tolerance.
Individuals with HDL (good) cholesterol level
at or below 35 mg/dl (0.90 mmol/l).
Women with a history of diabetes during pregnancy.
Women who have delivered a baby weighing over
9 lbs. (4kg.).
Chemcard Glucose was specifically developed to implement the diabetes
screening and decision level guidelines recommended by the ADA. Unlike other
glucose test methods which are intended for use in monitoring of known diabetics,
Chemcard Glucose is designed as a screening tool to help identify diabetics
who are unaware they have the disease, before the onset of serious health
complications. Studies indicate that early detection of diabetes allowing
prompt, effective treatment often helps reduce the severity of, and even
help prevent some complications associated with chronic diabetic hyperglycemia.
As recommended by the ADA, Chemcard Glucose measures plasma glucose level
after a minimum fasting period of 8 hours. The test device is in the form
of a card about the size of a business card. A sterile disposable lancet
is used to obtain a single drop of blood which is placed onto the "Test
Area". After three minutes, the top layer of the card is peeled off
and the results obtained by matching the color of the test area with a sliding
color chart. Upon matching colors, the test card is turned over and the
result appears on the back side of the test card. Consistent with the ADA
screening criteria, Chemcard results of 125 mg/dl (6.9 mmol/l) or higher
are considered abnormally high, while of 100 mg/dl (5.6 mmol/l) or less
are considered normal. All abnormal results should be referred to a physician
for follow-up diagnosis.
