Is Diagnosis of Diabetes Delayed In Everyone?
Majid Ali, M.D.
Regrettably, it is true. Diagnosis of diabetes type 2 is often delayed because the reliable blood tests are nit done.
What are the reasons for delayed diabetes diagnosis?
- Because three-hour insulin blood tests is not done.
- Because doctors make the mistake of relying on fasting blood sugar (glucose) test.
- Because doctors make the mistake of relying on the blood A1c tests for screening for diabetes.
Both fasting blood sugar and blood A1c tests are not reliable tests for screening for diabetes. I have a large number of patients in my files in which both tests gave false-negative results.
