The Pre-Diabetes biomarkers identify metabolic abnormalities that may progress into diabetes. Pre-diabetes is a condition where the body cannot efficiently metabolize foods, especially carbohydrates, resulting in impaired glycemic (blood sugar) control which may progress to diabetes when not properly treated or addressed through lifestyle changes.
SpectraCell’s Type 2 Diabetes Risk Assessment is an evaluation of specific risk factors that can indicate the presence of Pre-Diabetes and provide an assessment of a person’s risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes (Low, Moderate, or High). This test can be especially useful for identifying people within higher risk groups that are most likely to benefit from early medical and/ or lifestyle intervention. Other factors that significantly affect a pre-diabetic risk but that are not included in this report include: weight, blood pressure, smoking, inflammation, and family history.
