CBP + HBA1C + Fasting blood sugar
This test is basic screening for diabetes. HbA1c levels determine average levels of glucose attached to the hemoglobin over past two months. Are you feeling fatigue, suffering with frequent urination, weight loss, blurred vision, these could be symptoms for diabetes. This profile helps you diagnose diabetes in an individual.

Complete Blood Profile
Complete Blood Profile (CBP)
Complete Blood Profile analyzes components of a blood cell - investigating morphology, number, and maturity in blood volume. Recent studies link lower counts of lymphocytes (lymph-forming cells) and neutrophills(white blood cells) to prolonged infection.
HBA1C (Glycated Hemoglobin)
HbA1c or glycated hemoglobin develops when the protein carrying oxygen ‘hemoglobin’ within red blood cells combines with glucose in the blood, becoming ‘glycated’. By measuring HbA1c, clinicians can get an overview of your body's average blood sugar levels. Diabetic people with high HbA1c are more likely to develop diabetes-associated complications.
Fasting Blood sugar (FBS)
The Fasting Blood Sugar(FBS) test measures sugar (glucose) in your blood. This test identifies prediabetes, Type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes. A person might likely have these conditions and still not know about them. Fasting is required for 10 to 12 hours before the test.
