Diabetes is a common disease in which a person’s body does not properly produce or use insulin, a peptide hormone used in regulating carbohydrate and fat metabolism in the body. A quick and easy screening for blood glucose gives a high indication of whether or not a person may be at risk for type two diabetes.
Diabetes is a disease of the metabolism. Individuals who have type one diabetes, often noticed in childhood, have a pancreas which no longer produces insulin. 95% of people with diabetes have type two diabetes. This is a condition linked to weight in which muscle, liver and fat cells do not use insulin properly.
At first, the pancreas produces more insulin to keep up with the demand to break down sugars. As the pancreas begins to slow down, insulin levels decrease and in turn, there is a detectable level of blood glucose increase in the body.
This screening uses a small mobile unit and a finger prick to determine total glucose levels. Contact us today to schedule your cholesterol screening service from Vital Scan, Inc.!
