A1C is The Best test to Diagnose Diabetes & PREdiabetes

Medical tests and their results can be confusing. But a new fact sheet from the NIH aims to help people better understand a test called the A1C, which is used to diagnose type 2 diabetes and prediabetes, and to monitor people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The A1C provides information about average blood glucose levels, also called blood sugar levels, over the past three months, says Dr. David Sacks of the Clinical Center Dept. of Laboratory Medicine.

a1c rangeThe A1C test is based on the attachment of glucose to hemoglobin (usually called glycated hemoglobin), the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen.To diagnose diabetes if you use glucose, the most widely used way is to measure a fasting glucose where the person has to have fasted for at least 8 hours. They can ingest no food. You can drink water but that is all. But if someone comes to the doctor but they haven’t fasted, then you can’t diagnose diabetes because you don’t have a sample.

Watch the Video:

So if the doctor suspects the person has diabetes or wants to screen for diabetes, which is now recommended, they have to tell the person to come back the next day after fasting, which is a great inconvenience for a lot of people. Because hemoglobin A1C is not affected by short-term glucose in the blood, you can measure it any time of the day and whenever the patient arrives, regardless of the time of their last meal.

Experts hope the ease of A1C testing will encourage more people to be checked for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. The A1C test is more convenient because it does not require fasting. However, the A1C test may be unreliable in some people, so check with your doctor to see if the A1C test is right for you.

The reason why it’s very important to diagnose diabetes is because if it is not treated, the people with the disease develop complications that are irreversible once they occur. But they can be prevented if the disease is controlled. Get the fact sheet and more information online at www.niddk.nih.gov.

Double Eyelid Surgery Review + Storytime

you looks great now!! cant belive!! i have the same problem monolid eye!!

how much is it cost for the double eyelids surgry?
– you might think that but if they don’t think they are beautiful I will just say bE YOURSELF cause yourself is not always who you originally are
– Read this article by Forbes magazine on what humans will look like in 100,000 years. Notice the eyes are abnormally big and round.

Just watched your most recent video on your everyday makeup. Your eyelids are less deep/prominent as compared this video after you just recovered? Felt that you should’ve just sticked to eyelid stickers :/
– Erm.. I think you misunderstood.. If my eyes were still the same like in this video, the eyelids are gonna look super fake. In this video, my eyelids are really swollen and it’s not recovered yet. While on my recent video, the swelling has almost all gone. Which is why it looks less “prominent” and it’s also what I wanted. Instead of comparing to post-op, you should compare my eyelids to before surgery. It has become much more prominent than using double eyelid tapes. 🙂 But, if you like/prefer deep cut eyelids, that’s your choice. I prefer natural eyelids that’s not deep. 🙂 Hope you understand what I’m saying.

hi xinyi! thanks for answering so many questions, was wondering if you’re going to be making an post op update video? the deswelling process , advantages and disadvantages and so so? thxx
– Hmm.. I didn’t plan to do one, but if there are many people who have a lot of questions for me, then I’ll probably do one? :)
– ohh okay, well i was just wondering how long did majority of the swelling go away? They said it was 70% in a month is that true? Thank you so much :)
– Nope. I think the most was only 50% in a month. It depends on individual too.

Full Incisional Double Eyelid Blepharoplasty 5 Months Update

The long awaited update on my full incisional blepharoplasty! It’s been approximately 5 months since the procedure and I’m really happy with the results so far! I hope they stay this size and don’t become any smaller.

What people say:
It looks really good. You should try contact lenses from solotica if you like to wear contact lenses as they are by far the most natural looking contact lenses i’ve ever seen

I personally preferred the look of your eyes before because I thought they had a charm and made you still had a east Asian look but this looks ok too it makes you look more Pilipino or south east Asian so the whole eye change just made you shift ethnicities .

It looks really good. You should try contact lenses from solotica if you like to wear contact lenses as they are by far the most natural looking contact lenses i’ve ever seen

Have the scaring gone away after a year ? Also has the eyelids gotten smaller with time? I would really like to know!
– Yep, it takes a year or two to completely fade away.

I also had incisional and the lids fall but it’s still only noticeable to me or if I am sick /too little sleep and tired … Just pull your lids up daily and it’ll help lots! It’s a slow process of falling though so please don’t panic! My surgery was 2007 and it was 2010 before I started to notice slight falling of my lids 

Hello! I’ve been thinking about asian double eyelid surgery for a while now (I have monolids… and I hate it). Sometimes I’ll attempt to create a crease with double eyelid tape, but the results are often uneven and the tape is quite noticeable, overall it’s just a hassle. I’d like to get the surgery done the summer before I head off to university (I’m currently in high school). What age do you think is the most appropriate for this surgery? Is it worth the pain, work, and money? Thank you.

Liposonix: Watch My Stomach Shrink Week 0 (day after procedure)

So I’m sure I will get flamed for this but I don’t care. As you can see, my stomach is a little more swollen than usual. There are no videos on here from people who have had the liposonix procedure done so I thought it was about time someone did one. I just had the procedure done yesterday. For those of you that don’t know it is a non-surgical procedure that permanently destroys fat. I saved my money forever for this. The whole stomach was 00. You can see where they marked me. The pain wasn’t too bad, I had 3 passes of 50. I’d say it’s comparable to getting a tattoo. I should start seeing results in about 4 weeks and I should see the final results in 8-12 weeks. I will do 1 vid per week. Check out my new Bob Marley bikini!

I am not trying to lose weight. I exercise and eat right I just have one spot that won’t get any smaller which makes me a good candidate.
