More than 1 million people in the Netherlands live with diabetes (type 1 or type 2). Type 2 diabetes is the most common. This type results from an unhealthy lifestyle and is therefore also called a disease of affluence. Diabetes is a disease of the pancreas. This gland is located in the upper abdomen, behind the stomach. The pancreas produces substances needed for digestion, as well as a substance called insulin. Insulin is needed to transport sugar, derived from food, into our cells from the blood. In cells, sugar is used as fuel for a variety of cellular processes. In type 2 diabetes, insulin is still produced, but to a lesser extent and the body’s cells are less sensitive to insulin. As a result, sugar is not transported into the cell as well and thus higher and higher concentrations of sugar remain in the blood.
An Easly home diabetes test comes with an hba1c test (blood) and a test for measuring glucose (urine). This comprehensive diabetes test measures average blood sugar levels over the past two to three months with a finger prick. As an alternative to the HbA1c test, glucose in urine can be measured.
A normal HbA1c value falls between 20 and 42. If the HbA1c on a diabetes test is greater than 48, then diabetes is likely. Between 42 and 48 is pre-diabetes.
Normally, there is no glucose present in urine. If it does, it means that there is also excess glucose in the blood. In fact, the excess is excreted through the kidneys. So a urine sample is a good way to measure glucose.
Diabetes is a major problem worldwide and leads in the long run to many seriously ill people and high healthcare costs.
