PTS Pod A1C + Lipid + Glucose

This is a PROFESSIONAL product ONLY. It is not meant to be used by consumers.

The PTS Pod system offers a variety of different lab-based tests. The lipid profile is used as a part of a cardiac risk assessment to help determine an individual's risk of heart disease and to help make decisions about what treatment may be best if there is borderline or high risk. The Glucose panel is used as part of a diabetic risk assessment. The A1C panel is used to monitor A1C levels after a diabetes diagnosis has been given.

A1C

After a diabetes diagnosis, the A1C test is used to monitor your diabetes treatment plan. Since the A1C test measures your average blood sugar level for the past two to three months instead of your blood sugar level at a point in time, it is a better reflection of how well your diabetes treatment plan is working overall.

Your doctor will likely use the A1C test when you're first diagnosed with diabetes. This also helps establish a baseline A1C level. The test may then need to be repeated while you're learning to control your blood sugar.

Later, how often you need the A1C test depends on the type of diabetes you have, your treatment plan and how well you're managing your blood sugar.

For example, the A1C test may be recommended:

  • Twice a year if you have type 2 diabetes, you don't use insulin, and your blood sugar level is consistently within your target range
  • Three to four times a year if you have type 1 diabetes
  • Four times a year if you have type 2 diabetes, you use insulin to manage your diabetes, or you have trouble keeping your blood sugar level within your target range
You may need more frequent A1C tests if your doctor changes your diabetes treatment plan or you begin taking a new diabetes medication.

Lipid Profile

  • Total Cholesterol : measures all of the cholesterol in the lipoprotein particles.
  • High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL) : often called "good cholesterol" because it removes excess cholesterol.
  • Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL) : often called "bad cholesterol" because it deposits excess cholesterol in the walls of blood vessels.
  • Triglycerides : measures all the triglycerides in all the lipoprotein particles.

Glucose

The Glucose test is usually given after a fasting period of 8 hours. High blood sugar and diabetes may not cause symptoms in the early stages. A fasting blood sugar test is almost always done to screen for diabetes. If you are over age 45, you should be tested every 3 years.

If you have any of the risk factors below, ask your health care provider about getting tested at an earlier age and more often:

  • Overweight (body mass index, or BMI, of 25 or higher) and other risk factors
  • Blood pressure of 140/90 mmHg or higher, or unhealthy cholesterol levels
  • Member of a high-risk ethnic group (African American, Hispanic American, Native American, Asian American, or Pacific Islander)
  • Woman who has delivered a baby weighing 9 pounds or more, or who had gestational diabetes
  • Polycystic ovary disease (PCOS)
  • Close relative with diabetes (such as a parent, brother or sister)
  • Children age 10 and older who are overweight and have at least two of the risk factors listed above should be tested for type 2 diabetes every 3 years, even if they have no symptoms.
