What is the purpose of this test?

The Cardio IQ® Glucose Blood Test offered by Quest Diagnostics is a comprehensive diagnostic tool that measures the level of glucose present in the blood. Glucose is a simple sugar that is the primary source of energy for the body's cells. In addition to its role in providing energy, glucose also plays a critical role in metabolism. When glucose levels are too high or too low, serious health problems can occur.

The Cardio IQ® Glucose Blood Test is commonly used to screen for diabetes or monitor glucose levels in individuals with diabetes. By measuring fasting glucose levels, which is the amount of glucose in the blood after an overnight fast, the test can provide important information about an individual's metabolic health and their risk for developing cardiovascular disease.

The test is performed by drawing a small sample of blood from the patient and then analyzing the sample in a laboratory. The results are typically available within a few days and can be used by healthcare providers to make informed decisions about treatment options and lifestyle changes to improve overall health.

Overall, the Cardio IQ® Glucose Blood Test is an important diagnostic tool that can help individuals maintain optimal metabolic health and prevent serious health problems.


Benefits of the Cardio IQ® Glucose Blood Test:

  1. Early detection of diabetes: The test helps identify elevated blood glucose levels, allowing for the early detection of diabetes or prediabetes and enabling timely intervention and management.
  2. Comprehensive assessment: Provides a thorough evaluation of glucose levels in the blood, offering insights into overall glycemic control and risk for diabetes-related complications.
  3. Monitoring diabetes management: Enables healthcare providers to monitor the effectiveness of diabetes treatment plans and make adjustments as needed to optimize glycemic control.
  4. Risk assessment for cardiovascular disease: Elevated blood glucose levels are a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The test contributes to the evaluation of cardiovascular risk by assessing glucose levels.
  5. Personalized treatment planning: The test results aid in tailoring treatment plans based on individual glucose levels and risk factors, allowing for more personalized and effective management of diabetes and related conditions.
  6. Prevention of complications: Early detection and management of elevated blood glucose levels can help prevent or delay the onset of diabetes-related complications, such as neuropathy, retinopathy, and cardiovascular disease.
  7. Patient empowerment: Provides patients with valuable information about their glucose levels and associated risks, empowering them to take an active role in managing their health through lifestyle modifications, medication adherence, and regular monitoring.
  8. Collaboration with healthcare providers: Facilitates communication and collaboration between patients and healthcare providers, leading to more informed decision-making and better health outcomes in the management of diabetes and related conditions.
