#WorldDiabetesDay2021

The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) observe World Diabetes Day on 14thNovember to spread awareness about the escalating numbers of diabetes cases.

On this World Diabetes day, Aster Volunteers is committed to helping people offering free Diabetes screening and HbA1c tests to create awareness and promote early screening. HbA1c is considered to be a benchmark test for diabetes and is an expensive test. Through this initiative, we hope to help many patients filtered based on a first level assessment. We will then facilitate free Consultation to those who need it, either not covered by insurance or having financial constraints. We are following all the protocols and safety standards concerning COVID-19.

Importance of HbA1c Test

Sugar in the blood is called glucose. When glucose builds up, it binds to the hemoglobin in the red blood cells. The HbA1c test measures how much glucose is bound. Red blood cells live for about 3 months, so the test shows the average level of glucose in the blood for the past 3 months.

If one’s glucose levels have been high recently, the hemoglobin A1c test will be higher. Hemoglobin A1c levels between 5.7% and 6.4% indicate that there is a higher chance of getting diabetes. Levels of 6.5% or higher mean that the candidate has diabetes.

We are grateful to our partners Aster Labs, BioRad and Roche who are allowing us to administer these tests. To register, please fill in the necessary information below.
