Check out this press release from Abbott lab! Yesterday they announced a new point of care test for determining a person’s A1c. This is amazing for 3 reasons:
- The test is done in a doctors office and not sent out to a lab
- Results are ready in 3 minutes so you and your provider can react to your results IN THE OFFICE!!
- It meets standards for insurance diagnoses – claims may be less likely to get rejected
For many PWD, your labs come back several days after your visit and the opportunity to discuss the results in severely limited.
