#WorldDiabetesDay

International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) observes World Diabetes Day on 14 November 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, either not covered by insurance or having financial constraints. We are offering free assessments and HbA1c tests until December 5, 2020.
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 haemoglobin in the red blood cells. The A1c 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 haemoglobin A1c test will be higher. Haemoglobin A1c levels between 5.7% and 6.4% 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 Abbott & Bio-Rad, who are allowing us to administer these tests. To register, please fill in the necessary information below.
