Diabetes Test Giving FALSE Results? (SHOCKING!)

When you get screened for type 2 diabetes, and you get the all-clear, you might assume you don’t have diabetes.

But you could be in for a big surprise.

And not a good one.

Because according to a recent study, one of the most popular diagnostic tests for type 2 diabetes is completely unreliable.

And that means you could be diabetic and not even know it.

There’s a lot of unnecessary testing in the mainstream medical community. But diabetes tests aren’t one of them.

If my patients have any of the risk factors for diabetes (being obese, having a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.), then I absolutely recommend getting screened for diabetes.

Because if you’ve got type 2 diabetes… and you’re not doing anything to help control your blood sugar levels… you’re literally a walking time bomb.

Every hour of every day those high blood sugar levels are declaring all-out war on the organs and tissues throughout your body, increasing your risk of heart disease and stroke, kidney disease, vision problems, nerve problems, and more.

But here’s the scary part.

If you’ve been given the diabetes all-clear based on the results of one of the most popular diabetes tests out there… you could be in for a big surprise.

The results of a recent study have found that the hemoglobin A1C test is completely unreliable.

The study included 9,000 people without diabetes. They were all given multiple diabetes tests, including A1C and an oral glucose tolerance test.

It turns out that the A1C test missed the diabetes diagnosis 73% of the time.

The debate about the accuracy of this test has been raging for years.

The problem with the test is that it provides an average blood sugar level over a two- to three-month period, which doesn’t account for dangerous blood sugar spikes that can happen throughout the day—every day.

The best test I recommend is the one-hour glucose test. It’s even better than the two-hour test in terms of predicting diabetes, heart disease, and even early death.

A postprandial (after-meal) blood glucose analysis can be done at your doctor’s office or with a home glucometer.

Your blood glucose level should be below 155mg/dL one hour after a meal, or below 140mg/dLi f the measurement is done after two hours.
