About the HbA1C test kit

We offer home tests as a quick, convenient way for you to find out whether you are diabetic or prediabetic.

How does the HbA1c test kit work?

The HbA1c home test kit works by testing a sample of your blood for average glucose levels.

Follow the instructions we send you to collect a blood sample. Send the sample to our partner laboratory. When the lab sends us your test result, we’ll share it with you in your secure account.

How do I take a blood sample?

Follow our simple instructions to take a finger prick drop of blood. Put it in the packaging we include and send it to our partner laboratory.

What are my options if I don’t want to take a home test?

If you are displaying symptoms but you don’t want to take a home test, please see your GP.

What if my results show that I am diabetic or prediabetic?

If the results show that you are prediabetic or diabetic, please see your GP to discuss the best next step.

Remember to take a copy of your results with you.
