Diabetes

It is possible to prevent the progression of diabetes and its devastating effects—with the right tools. Traditional glycemic metrics (glucose and HbA1c) are useful for diagnosing prediabetes and diabetes, but do not detect early disease indications before the conditions have progressed. True Health’s specialized tests help uncover insulin resistance and prediabetes in its early stages, when there is still time to fight disease progression.

Comprehensive Testing

Reveal Early Risk.

Diabetes is the final stage on a disease continuum that starts with insulin resistance and strain on pancreatic beta cells, progresses to prediabetes, and ends with diabetes. By the time diabetes is typically diagnosed, 80% of pancreatic beta-cell function has already been lost. Our testing helps uncover early risk before traditional tests, such as glucose and HbA1c—before prediabetes and diabetes take a toll on a person’s health.

Testing is Just the First Step

True Health’s testing is a key first step for taking action against the progression of diabetes. Our results pinpoint areas of risk associated with specific diabetic disease states, from early insulin resistance to prediabetes and, ultimately, diabetes. Through personalized True Health laboratory results, clinicians are able to understand where a patient falls on the disease continuum, enabling them to create more effective treatment plans specific to each patient’s unique risk profile. The ultimate goal is to control the disease and prevent negative outcomes, such as kidney disease, accelerated arterial plaque development, and vision problems, which can adversely affect a patient’s quality of life.

Health Management

How True Health Helps.

Once a clinician has tailored a patient treatment plan, we help support these recommendations by providing personalized health management services. Our team of degreed health professionals helps patients understand their lab results and reach their health goals, no matter where on the diabetes continuum they may be. For some patients, this may include basic education about the disease, diabetes-friendly recipes and meal plans, and personalized exercise plans. For others, it may also include disease management support, including medications and monitoring, to help them control their diabetes. Learn more about our health management program.
