Caused by elevated blood sugar, diabetes is a medical condition in which a lack of insulin or insulin resistance can contribute to many chronic health issues. Diabetes can result in serious long-term damage to the eyes, kidneys, heart, and more if left untreated. Although it can affect any individual at any age, the disease most commonly affects adults over the age of 45.

To diagnose diabetes, primary care physician Dr. Roger Estevez will conduct a simple blood test known as a fasting blood sugar screen to measure how much glucose is found in the blood. A healthy blood sugar level is a reading of 100 or less, 100 – 125 may indicate pre-diabetes, and 125 or higher could mean that the person is likely diabetic. An A1C blood test, which averages blood sugar levels over 2 – 3 months, can determine whether your diabetes is under control or requires further medical care. Schedule a visit at Clinical Research of South Nevada in Las Vegas, NV for more information.
