Making menstrual blood count

Measuring your biomarkers.

Measures average blood sugar. It’s generally one of the commonly used tests to diagnose and monitor prediabetes and diabetes. Blood sugar (glucose levels) can have health impacts— even for non-diabetics. Elevated blood sugar is proven to negatively impact fertility, change moods, affect energy levels, and impact skin. This test allows you to trace your blood sugar over a representative period of time, but also can help to inform choices before health impacts can be felt. The Q-Pad A1c FDA clearance is limited to monitoring glycemic control for people with diabetes.
